Master Bedroom Makeover

Well, after many months of complaining about my master bedroom, I am finally done! I have been showing you pictures along the way but I thought that I would put it all together for you.
We started off by painting the walls a soft gray. We get a lot of light in this room and I especially love the gray as the sunshine is coming through.
I spent a lot of time going back and forth with what color I should paint the furniture and finally decided to go to the Dark Side {I guess Connor’s Star Wars obsession has rubbed off a bit on me!}.  The bed and the side tables got a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {in graphite} and made a big impact on the room.
Although I loved the dark furniture, I still wanted a little white in the room.  I used some DIY chalk paint on our dresser to provide some contrast.
On of my favorite projects in the room was the photo canvas above the dresser.  I love the pop of blue {which is Annie Sloan Provence} and it was definitely the easiest project by far!
I carried some of the blue to the other side of the room as well with this painted stool.
We removed the wall sconces from beside the bed and added a new ceiling light instead.  After mulitple lights, I finally found one that I liked.  Unfortunately, we were unable to remove the electrical boxes from the wall {unless we wanted to take the whole wall down} so I was unable to do the wall treatment that I wanted.  I still think I will add something to the wall behind the bed at some point but I will live with it for now.
On the other side of the room I have my Edlund dresser turned desk {from Ikea} and a couple of favorite photos.  I love having a computer up in our room now since our main computer is two floors down in the basement.  My gigantic clock also found a new home just above the desk.
I also found some fun finds for my bare little corner.  You can never have too many places to hang your purses!

So do you remember the Before pictures {and my original plans}?

  It was a lot of work, but I am very happy with our new bedroom {well, except for that darn wall…}

Now to just relax and enjoy!!!

    I love it! You did a fantastic job Jenn. Even though you painted the walls gray and the furniture dark, it still looks light and bright. The desk area is a great idea. Who wants to be running up and down two flights of stairs? Not me. lol =)

    Very nice! I bought a sample of the ASCP in graphite so glad to see how wonderfully your furniture turned out. Did you make the curtain panels? I really like the look overall ~ great job!

      We painted a few years ago and my husband mistakenly threw out the remnants of the paint can. I know I wrote it down somewhere though so I will try to find it for you!
