I know that there are lots of people/bloggers that move into a home, and a year later it’s done, it’s fabulous and it’s magazine ready.
I am not of those people/bloggers, so it takes me FOREVER to get a room done because of time and money. Let’s face it, both are hard to come by sometimes. Hence why after I tackled the living room last November, I waited until February to start the dining room and it’s still not done. Now, I’d say it’s 85% of the way there. I need artwork, touch up paint and accessories. Those little final touches that will make my dining/office/craft space really chic and have a wow factor. So until it’s 100% of the way done, I’m not showing you all anymore pictures. None. Ok, maybe a few on Facebook (hint, hint…)
But what will I work on after this dining room is done with? Well, the title of my post says it all. The boudoir. I know it’s not a room anyone will see much besides my husband, Pee Wee and I (plus you lovely people), but it is a room I despise. It’s got a king bed in it (just a mattress + bed frame), a random desk and bookshelf and my old, black printer stand. UGLY. It is UGLY up in there. I want to be able to plop into bed in a restful, hotel like, glamorous bedroom, so it is my next DIY makeover that I have planned.
There’s a few things we have definitely decided on:
Flooring: Will be the same as the one we have in the dining room.
Bedding: The set we got on clearance for $15 at Target.
Wall Color: Sharkey gray by Martha Stewart (color matched PERFECTLY by Sherwin Williams. Thank God.) Here’s a sample photo I found online of the color…

Headboard: Uber expensive one we (we being Daniel more than me) love from Pottery Barn (shown in Sage, we’re buying Buckwheat)
I know some people may get judgy about the price or tell me I can DIY, to which I say, sorry. Not going to DIY because I am a PERFECTIONIST and will hate anything I make. And the price, well. Oh well. Sometimes you have to splurge. I do have a coupon that is knocking about $100+ off.
Curtains: I snagged these for $14 a panel on clearance at Target
Nightstands: This will be a Goodwill revamp. I’ve had a pair of nightstands I bought at Goodwill for $7 each that will be getting a drastic makeover. Everything I’ve shown you all thus far has been very neutral, so trust me, these nightstands will bring in a pop of color to the room. Especially when paired with this hardware I love from Lowe’s:
I still need lamps (also might be a makeover/DIY project with some Krylon), a rug, a TV stand, wall art, vanity area, etc. but overall the main pieces of the room have been chosen. Now, I still look to Pinterest often to get ideas and inspiration for the vibe I want set forth when you look at my space, so here’s the top 5 that reflect my design vision (click on photo to be taken to Pinterest/source).
All of them are different, yet cohesive in some way…should be interesting to see how it all turns out.
What does your master bedroom look like? Any ideas or suggestions for our bedroom that I haven’t thought about yet? I would love a recommendation for a perfect all-season duvet that is affordable/reasonable in price.
