I’m finally done and ready to share my master bedroom redo. Ummm, I guess I shouldn’t say done because, are we ever really done? Anyway, I am done with everything I am going to do at this present time (how’s that?) I’ve already posted about the ceiling that I painted in a pearl finish and the painting of the walls and crown molding installation.
I just want to say that as I redo each room, first the bathroom then the living/dining room, I am learning more and more about small space decorating (and small space photography!). It’s been really difficult because you have to learn to edit so much while still trying to have a stylish room. Like I said, I’m learning. Let’s start out with a few before shots, beginning with an empty room before we moved in.
This is a small room, 13×17, and it had the same “swiney” beige walls that all the other rooms had, but it has beautiful hardwood floors and really nice panelled doors. I knew that I wanted to put up crown molding and paint the walls and ceiling, but the first job we had to tackle in this room was the closet that came empty, no shelves and no rods, which is another post for another time. Now for the after pics!
Although the room is small, we where able to fit all of the furniture that we already had, a king size bed, a chair, a two piece armoire, nightstand, and a small bedside table.
how much I spent:
- ceiling paint – $50
- wall paint – 2 gallons, $100
- leaning mirror – $100
- wood for crown molding – $85
- nail gun – $25 Harbor Freight
- knobs for closet doors – $30
- knobs for armoire and nightstand $15
- door knob and hinges – $ 30
- small round mirror – $10
- monogrammed lumbar pillow cover and form – $35
- woven shades for windows – $285
Everything else I already had. I ended up spending around $785 for the room, including window treatments, but the nail gun will be used again many times, I had nearly a gallon left of the wall paint (don’t you hate when that happens?), and I have half of the gallon of the ceiling paint left.
I know this is getting long, but I thought I would just share the sources of the room, as you can see most of the things I’ve had for many years.
