It has been quite some time since I last wrote an update about our bedroom overhaul! In January 2017, I started dreaming about decorating our master bedroom. Today, it’s a totally different space that we absolutely love.
Our bedroom started out as a blank canvas with a bed and mismatching nightstands (and one “nightstand” was actually stacked totes, lol) and that was pretty much it. The picture below is the only true “before” picture I have, probably because the rest of the room was just empty, haha.
Of course, I wanted this project to come together in like a week. You know–buy some new bedding, matching night stands, artwork, throw pillows, the works. That just wasn’t in our budget, and I’m actually really glad. I feel like each time I made even a super small update to our room, often months after the last one, I truly cherished and appreciated that update.
It also gave us time to figure out what we liked and only purchase things that we truly loved, instead of just rushing to fill the room and have the project finished. It has taken a long time for everything to come together, and I don’t know that the room will ever truly be finished, if that makes sense.
I once read that if you consider a room “finished” then it’s stagnant and kind of dead. I think I’ll always be switching things up and making changes, and I’m totally okay with that. That’s what keeps the room fresh and beautiful!
Slowly, I started to add in some decor and new bedding. I thought I wanted white bedding, but I was very, very wrong. Two of our pets have black fur, so that just wasn’t working! Thankfully the white bedding was inexpensive, and I learned it’s just a no-go for us in this season of life!
Over a few more months, I added in some decor, a bench, and a new comforter. Then Jimmy decided to make a bed for our room and that really brought everything together!
Jimmy started the bed around Valentine’s Day (what a sweet gift!) and we put it in our room in May. Since then, the room looks like such a different space! The picture below is what our master bedroom looks like now.
We are so happy with how the room has turned out (so far!) and can’t wait to see what types of updates we’ll be making in the future 🙂
