Hello again & the master bedroom reveal!

Sep 29, 2016

Hi there! It's been quite a while since my last post. With the short summer season we get in Newfoundland I decided to take the summer off and enjoy every moment of the warm weather and long sunny days. It was a blissful summer & I hope you had wonderful one as well. As the temperatures have started to cool and the days get shorter I'm once again drawn to the well known feeling of excitement that I get when I'm fascinated with getting focused and creative in home decor and DIY projects.

Although I did take time off from blogging over the past several months, that didn't including taking time off from completing ongoing and new projects around our home and garden, and I can't wait to share them with you here.

It's been a long time coming so I'm thrilled to finally share our master bedroom makeover with you today. The master bedroom reno first started last fall when we started to create the new ensuite and master bedroom by combining two existing bedrooms. When we first moved in, the current master bedroom looked like this...

The new room is much more our style; with a Scandinavian, minimalist feel, consisting of a rustic headboard, and simple decor; it ties in perfectly with the rest of the home. Take a look...

Both the black dresser (shown above) and black leather chair (shown below) are vintage pieces passed onto us from our families. I really value having sentimental decor and both these items also serve a functional purpose for us. 

The ladder was a DIY project I completed several years ago. This was a ladder from an old bunk bed set which I then whitewashed to give it that worn vintage look.

This DIY headboard is by far one of my favourite projects. I've put together the full step by step instructions for the pallet headboard here. 

During the reno we debated creating a walk-in closet in the master bedroom as we knew the existing closet (shown above) simply wouldn't be enough storage for two people. Instead, we opted to install a full wall of Ikea Pax wardrobes and created this entertainment center in the previous closet space. We painted the interior of the closet Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter to match the bedroom doors.

We still have a few loose ends to tie up in this space; I'd like to install a new ceiling light and there's also a few feet of crown moulding to go up. Overall, it's such a great feeling to have created this peaceful and calming sanctuary for our master bedroom. It's usually a room that for most people, gets neglected. If you're in this position, I would highly recommend taking the time you need to make it the space you desire. By making the change, you'll be creating positivity when you start and finish your day which for me, has resulted in a better state of mind for my entire day!
