Here is the bedroom before with the green walls and old dresser. You can read about it's past transformations here.
In this photo you can almost tell that I actually painted the headboard yellow. I've since repainted it white.
And here it is now.
The new paint color is Baer paint in eggshell. The color is Sandstone Cove.
In addition to painting the walls, I brought in a Craig's List dresser that I painted in A.S.C.P. Chateau Gray with a dark wax.
The mirror is the same, but I added new accessories from Marshalls.
The mercury glass candleholders add a little bit of sparkle to the room.
I added some florals to this sweet container.
These Better Homes and Gardens plates are from Walmart. They used to hang in the sitting room, but I like them here better. I've been scouring Ebay for one more to complete the wallscape.
I know they don't pop out, but I like the subtlety of them.
I also brought in my favorite antique cabinet that used to be in the sitting room. This piece has also been through many transformations, which you can read about here. This is one of the befores as it looked in the Sitting Room.
And now as it looks in the master.
I love the new look with chateau gray and dark wax. It holds some of my special sentimental treasures.
Since the Pottery Barn curtains didn't work in here (story here) I decided to rehang the white panels that have been here for a couple of years and I really like how they look with the walls. It's a very soft look.
These walls are just screaming for some artwork, aren't they? I'm not going to put anything on my newly painted walls until I'm sure I'll like it.
For my bed I bought new sheets in a dark teal color and purchased a new white matelasse quilt from Ebay. The bedskirt, shams and comforter were a Pottery Barn splurge last year.
The new lamps are one of my favorite additions to this room and an unexpected find. I wanted teal blue ceramic lamps for my side tables and wasn't going to budge. I was shocked to find these at Walmart of all places for only $15! They are the perfect size and you'd never know by looking at them that they are actually resin! The lampshades were also a Walmart purchase last year. They have the look of burlap, but without the PB price tag.
I just read in my new issue of Southern Living that your bedside tables should be "cousins", not "twins". They should be of the same height (give or take a couple inches) and the same color, but different styles. I was happy to hear that because that's exactly what I chose to do in my master.
Both of these tables were $4 at a church flea market a couple of years ago.
They are very vintage.
I still need to add some artwork to the large wall surrounding the cabinet, but not sure what to put there yet. I'm open to suggestions. I'm leaning towards black and white photos in white frames with white matting.
Poor thing looks so lonely on that big bare wall.
I'm also still working on tweaking the adjoining sitting room. We are looking for a sofa to go on the big wall. It's kind of Mr. Bliss' man space, so I'm trying to de-feminize it for him.
I hope you like the new look! Sorry for the ridiculousness of the grainy photos. After two years of having a good camera you'd think I'd be past this. Any suggestions? It's a Nikon Coolpix L100.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious week!
