It has been awhile since I shared our progress on our Master Bedroom with you.
But that doesn’t mean it isn’t coming along 😉
It just means that I got a bit distracted with other blogging collaborations and opportunities and ideas – and life (to say the least) – so it hasn’t gone as fast as I hoped. However, I am very pleased with the progress we have made and I’ve got just a few more things to finish up before the final shots and completion.
Today I want to show you the nightstands we found and fixed up to suit the space. I picked both of them up at antique stores, for actually really good deals. They had the shapes I wanted, just not the colors. Nothing a bit of chalk paint can’t fix!
Here is a picture of my $30 French Provincial nightstand before it got painted.
Minus the drawers – and I already had paint on the top when I remembered the before picture. But you get the idea, right? It has lovely curved legs and great storage for all my husbands crap . . . er . . . stuff.
I discovered Rust-oleum’s new chalk paint line at my local paint store and the price was great so I snagged it up. The color is linen white – which seems to be white with just a bit of brown/gray tones.
I sanded the piece lightly before I applied the paint. But I thought this chalk paint went on very smoothly and only took 2 coats for full coverage.
I scuffed her up just a bit – but not too much.
I am really trying to aim at a very uncluttered/minimalist approach to our master bedroom. I want this one space in our home to be a retreat from mess and too much stuff – which is easy to come by in a house with 4 kids. I’ve made it a general rule that toys aren’t allowed in mom and dad’s rooms. Doesn’t always work – but for the most part they obey.
I’ve kept the decor on top very minimal, and just pretty. This is my husbands nightstand so he plugs his phone on there at night and the rest of his reading material goes in the drawers. We love the clean look.
Next up, I found this already painted piece for just 35 dollars.
While I usually like that aqua color, it wasn’t suited for this neutral/serene space. So after a bit of sanding, I applied the same Linen color paint to the piece.
This little lamp was at a thrift store for $3.00. I am pretty sure it’s meant for a little girls room, but I never really grew up anyway 😉
Of course, I had to fight my girls for it.
Then I painted a thrifted frame with the same chalk paint, and added an image that holds fond memories for us. Did I ever mention my husband and I met working on a dude ranch in Wyoming?
He is really not a cowboy. And I am the farthest thing from a cowgirl. But we had fun playing the part for a summer – and falling in love!
We got hitched a few months after this picture.
The bottom shelf is left simple as well. Just a thrifted vase and an antique store dish that I couldn’t get my mind off of.
Finished off with one of my all time favorite photography magazines “Click“, for some down-time reading. I love that there is no where for me to stack clutter. It has been perfect and so relaxing.
There is so much more to show you with this room and I just can’t wait! It has been my favorite space updates of all time.
