Thinking outside the box, sometimes yields the greatest results. My master bedroom reveal (before and after) shows you, that with a little elbow grease and making the most out of what you have, can give you fabulous results! Come and see what the inside of my fixer upper used to look like.
Here are a few before pictures of our master bedroom, in our fixer upper. Sorry for the poor picture quality, but I probably was jumping up and down inside (causing camera shake) to get my hands on that wallpaper!
I am so glad that I remembered to take a photo of our trio of doors! Two are for our master bathroom…..CRAZY, huh?! One door was in the bedroom and one was in the hall so company could enter the bathroom without coming into the bedroom. At least, that is what I assume. Needless to say, that the door for the bathroom, in the hall, was promptly framed and sheet rocked. Now the bathroom can ONLY be accessed from the bedroom.
This is actually our second closet in our master. I didn’t quite know what I was going to do with it, at first.
I was not able to snag a picture before the drapes were torn down, but they were an EXACT match to this lovely wallpaper. Can you even imagine? I just could not figure out a way to work the pink flowers into my design…hahahah! So I stripped the wallpaper, pretty much immediately. I don’t even think the ink was dry from our closing documents!
Master Bedroom Reveal
With a lot of elbow grease, paint, and a little imagination, I was able to turn our small master bedroom into a retreat! By only painting the walls in Sherwin Williams Creamy, removing the wallpaper, replacing the carpet with laminate, and using my existing furniture to freshen up the room. This took less than a week and was mostly labor, on my end.
Can you believe this is the same room?! Now it is so light and bright! That dark blue wallpaper was really absorbing all the light in the room.
With the secondary closet in our master bedroom, I removed the bi-fold doors, added some molding, and shoved my abnormally large dresser inside! Now it is a great feature in our bedroom, highlighting my beautiful piece of furniture (that I probably would have had to get rid of because our bedroom is so small).
The addition of inexpensive drop cloth curtains (DIY post coming soon) were a total win! These are a no sew project that can be completed in a matter of minutes!
I hope you enjoyed my master bedroom reveal. Writing these posts always keeps me motivated and inspired to continue with our remodel progress. Some days are hard to stay upbeat when you have so many daunting tasks ahead, but knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel makes it all worth it!
