Making a Home

February 27, 2013

Happy Hump day Loves!!! 

So finally after 2 years of living in our home I am finally making our Master bedroom feel like a Master bedroom. WOO HOO

We were able to get a coat of paint on the walls "Decorator White" by Benjamin Moore... Which we fell in love with  because of this Photo

Veranda Magazine

Here is a little sneak peek at our room!

We still have to do another coat (you can still see the original colour coming through in some spots) But I am loving the look that is taking shape. This paint colour combined with muted tones is really calming- perfect for a master bedroom.

I  think I have the perfect floor plan after 3 failed attempts .. with the bed on the far wall and a dresser on each of the other walls.. I feel we our getting the most spacious layout... 

 Eventually I would like to have no dressers in the room I am really jonesing for the Ikea Pax wardrobe system with all its pretty organizing elements. 

That way I can have enough space for a dressing table and a sitting area!  what do you think?

So I probably should of moved out the clothes dumped on the chair and cleaned off the tall boy..... man I am still a rookie at this photo taking .... I promise to get better peeps! 

I  found these curtains at Home Sense although I am still not sure if they are the perfect ones.. lol no really I think the room is coming along nicely.

My absolute favourite piece is my night side table which is a little vintage desk I found at the Fabulous Aroka Vintage Boutique! I love that it adds a little character to the room....please disregard the piece of paper under one of the legs. Probably should have removed that too before I took the photo!

 Check out my little vignette... stylin' right? 
BTW Loving Lauren Conrad's books! Yup That's right reality star turned designer turned author! 
Seriously Lauren can do no wrong!

So That's pretty much it for the Master Bedroom right now.... Next up is searching for that perfect rug

Here are a few ideas



I can't tell if we should go for a pop of colour or go with a bold black and white print!   What do you think....colour or black and white? Also I am going to eventually attempt to make a headboard yup that's right  we are talking designing, using a jigsaw and upholstering a headboard....... but I am setting the deadline for completion for 2014!

 I have to make my goals attainable right??? So what do you think is the Master Bedroom looking like a MASTER bedroom???

And there you go, a little peek at what I have being busy working on!



  1. Yes, to the black and white! Looking good!

  2. You should really try the headboard!! I made two, one for the girls' bedroom and one for our master, and they both turned out great!! It is quite easy if you keep you eye on the goal. You can check out my two headboards on my blog!
