Master Bedroom Reveal

The day is finally here, Master Bedroom Reveal Day! It feels so good to make the bed with crisp new sheets, add the throw pillows, and stand back to see my weeks of hard work turn into a fresh new space. I can’t wait one more second to show you…

Master bedroom reveal with fresh farmhouse touches

Let me remind you what the bedroom looked like before the makeover…

You MUST see this bedroom after the makeover

After the Master Bedroom Makeover…


You won't believe what this bedroom looked like before the makeover!

Can you even believe that is the same room?! The paint color (Gratitude) really brightened the room up.  Adding a bit of Metrie trim work and paint from Voice of Color turned my nightmare furniture into a dream! Read the tutorial how I updated the bed and dresserWarning- when you see how easy it was, you’ll want to cut yours up too.

Wedding song art work- Oh my darling you look wonderful tonight

The hand painted wood sign I made is the first thing you notice when you walk into the room. This Eric Clapton number was our wedding song, it seemed so fitting to incorporate it into a space just for us. I can’t stop whistling the tune.

fresh blue and yellow bedroom

I sewed the throw pillows myself, adding contrasting piping to give it a little extra pop. The yellow and aqua fabric set the tone for the whole space, so bright and happy!

Adding an area rug (Homespun Trellis Rug in Navy) cozied up the space and gave a nice contrast to the other bright colors. You can read tips about buying an area rug here.

dresser and bed foot bench

At the foot of the bed I made this small upholstered bench, tutorial to follow. I liked the trim work detail on the footboard so much I didn’t want to cover it up. Instead I pushed it against the wall and it makes a great divide. I used indoor/ outdoor Sunbrella fabric so if I choose to move it to another area it should withstand heavier traffic.

Thrift store night side table and lamp

We have to talk nightstands… I’m really trying to embrace the mismatched look. Typically I’m strictly a symmetrical gal, but with having the closet door right at the edge of the bed a smaller night stand is necessary to get the door fully open. Plus I needed something that wouldn’t cover the register when we’re back to needing a fire.

dresser turned into a nightstand by cutting off the top row of drawers

You may recognize this nightstand, it used to be a dresser that was in my dining room. I cut the drawer off, and replaced the top. It needed a little extra height, the knobs from the pine dresser worked perfect! I painted the nightstands with Sweet Pea 105-2 for Voice of Color, so fresh and crisp.

Create a tall mirror with trim work and the kreg jig

Since moving in I wanted a full length mirror, enough standing on the edge of the bathtub to see my outfit. When getting Metrie trim for the bed I got enough extra to build this mirror, I love that it coordinates with the bed and dresser. P.S. don’t order a sheet of mirror over the phone without actually measuring or building the frame first, it might just wind up to be gargantuan. Apparently I’m not great at visualizing size!

Yellow thrift store chair makeover

This thrift shop rescue chair in Forsythia Blossom yellow is the perfect pop of color.

Give an outdated bedroom a fresh makeover

Blue, yellow and grey master bedroom

Doesn’t the furniture look like a pricy set, I’m so thrilled how it turned out. Such a budget friendly makeover!

The Paint Colors

Fresh modern farmhouse inspired Master bedroom paint colors

Pittsburgh Paints Voice of Color Gratitude PPG 1120-2 | Hot StonePPG1007-4 | Macaroon Cream 511-1 | Sweet Pea 105-2| Phoenix Fossil 517-5 | Forsythia Blossom 212-4

I went a bit heavy on the paint colors in this space, I used the first two Gratitude and Hot Stone as wall colors and the other brighter hues to accessorize.

Fresh Master Bedroom makeover

Paint was without a doubt my favourite part of this room makeover. I wanted to design a space that was fresh, bright and colourful but not too feminine; we wouldn’t want to make Mr. Fynes cringe the second his eyes opened in the morning.
