I recently showed you the makeover of the accent chair for our master bedroom, and a sneak peek of the stenciled wall. But, today I am revealing the whole room to you!
When we first took possession, the room literally felt like you were inside a cardboard box - beige walls and matching beige carpeting.
And here is how the room looks now...
Some people prefer a lighter, more airy bedroom, but I prefer it dark and cozy. Especially since I need zero light in order to sleep at night. Since the headboard is a similar colour to the wall colour, I decided to stencil over the dark grey walls with the Fuji stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. I followed the same technique that I had used in the powder room (you can read about that here).
The headboard was a DIY project that my husband and I undertook. I had wanted a tufted upholstered headboard, but at the same time I wanted a wingback headboard. So, I decided to combine the two into one and make this 5' tall beauty. Unfortunately, I don't have a tutorial for this project since it was completed about a year ago. I followed a tutorial from Addicted 2 Decorating on how to create a diamond tufted headboard. We then adhered foam, batting, and upholstered fabric onto the side panels, and attached to the board with large L-brackets (the side panels were the hardest and longest part of the project).
Since we live in Canada and winters can be bitter cold, we decided to include an electric fireplace in our room. It also doubles as a entertainment console. It heats up the room very quickly, and is a must to make the room toasty warm before curling into bed at night during the winter.
Here, you'll see the accent chair that we gave a makeover. You can also see in this picture, a hallway that leads to the ensuite bathroom (this room is on our long list of things to do). On either side of the door to the ensuite are his and hers closets (you can see my master closet reveal here).
The bench at the foot of the bed was another DIY project that we completed for this room. I didn't take any in-progress pics of this project either since it was finished last year, but I recently completed a similar bench for a client's home, so you'll be able to see that in a later post.
