Finally Master Bedroom....

After getting a new comforter by accident, and just all together ready for a bedroom spruce up the finishing results are in. I upholstered my own headboard back in December using some great online tutorials and a velvet curtain for the fabric. I love how it turned out. I feel like I am in a swanky place that isn't mine. I had planned on having matching end tables on either side of the bed, but had a bit of a tweek in my plan. Now each side has it's own personality and I am really happy with it. Having the steel blue curtains really gives the room a serene environment. The mirrors, lamps and tulip style table I picked up at Target. (my fav store) With three kids always in toe there aren't to many other places I venture out to on a regular basis. And why when Target is so great. 


The story on this side table: I ordered them from Ikea and when I received them and got them put together they were way to low. I knew that they would be on the shorter side but thought it might still work. Not even close. So my fix was to attach the two boxes together. Because I loved the look of the tables so much I hated to send them back. Once I got the two boxes attached together it was perfect. Bonus for me I get more storage. Below is what it looks like with the two tables attached together and below that is the  original version. 



This is the hubs side of the bed. I love this table and was really excited when I realized I could incorporate  it into our room . Plus he doesn't need the storage space on his side like I do for all of my stuff!




Last but not least is our lil sitting area. I am still working on that frame above. I am going to paint the frame black. Right now I have some paintable wall paper unpainted in the frame. But am thinking I will paint it my accent color of steel blue. Your thoughts?





Here is a closer shot of the framed piece.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE your room. I am sure that you and I must be sisters seperated at birth.

Just my 2 cents....I would find a special photo to put in the frame...black and white. Maybe of Josh and yours favorite place, a piece of furniture at your fav resturant, something like that. Make it really personal.

Enjoy your room!

OH.MY.GAH. *jaw hitting floor*

I absolutely love it! Sooo worth the wait, J! Yes, I'm yelling, I'm so excited =)

It all works so well together--the bedding, the lush headboard, the lamps, the fab mirrors. I esp. love your spin on the nightstand--those legs are so chic!

I think painting that paper inside the frame would be the perfect art. I say steel blue or even a silver!

Simply gorgeous =)

BTW, what is the picture in the frame? Is it scrapbook paper?

queenjennlynn said...

OK..I thought it must be scrapbook paper or wallpaper or something. I think it would really add a pop if you DRY BRUSH painted it. It would be a little more subtle and not detract from the raised print on it. I'm thinking I might do something like that in our bedroom. I have the bare bones to the master room and bathroom (chocolate brown and ice blue), but I have NOTHING on the walls in the bedroom. You are inspirational!

Jesse said...

Tam, it sure is ikea. I combined two tables to make it higher with more storage. The tulip style table is Target.
