Master Bedroom

We've simply added our own decorative touches to the master bedroom. We're working on a remodeling budget, which would include new closet doors, new floors, and a paint job. I would love to replace the ceiling fan with a prettier light fixture - but function overrules. I am also on the look-out for a larger bed and a dresser for myself. I imagine that this room will change a great deal over time. This is how it looks now, using mostly thrift store, estate sale, and car boot purchases.

This wall sconce hangs right outside the door to our bedroom. I picked it up at a car boot sale for $3. I spray painted it with Rust-Oleum's Aged Copper. I also rewired the crystals to match the new color. The white pillar candles were purchased from Hobby Lobby on sale.

Here is a picture of our bed beyond the wall sconce. The wall outside our bedroom door is at an angle so that you can see the wall sconce from inside the bedroom. It is a welcoming sight.

This room is comprised of things collected over the years. The farm painting that hangs above my display chest was painted by my husband's grandmother. It is a family heirloom. The display chest was purchased from Target years ago. I have since replaced the mission-style knobs with mercury glass ones from Hobby Lobby. The copper candelabra was picked from a local thrift store for $4. I spray painted it with Krylon's Metallic Copper. I also added the crystals. The potted silk flowers was purchased from CVS about 7 years ago on clearance. The red Threshold faux silk curtains were picked from a local thrift store for $5/pair. The iron-looking scroll floor lamp was purchased from Wal-Mart. The lamp shade and finial have been replaced using finds from Ross.

The red duvet bed set was purchased from Bed Bath & Beyond about 7 years ago, when the potted silk flowers was purchased. The embroidered Mr & Mrs pillow was picked from a local store called University Pickers. I used a birthday gift card for that purchase, so it was technically a gift.

I display my wedding things in the display chest. My handcrafted wedding veil is on the left top shelf, along with the perfume that I wore on my wedding day. My corsage from my wedding shower is on the bottom left, along with my keepsake garter that I wore on my wedding day. The rustic chair nightstand was also picked from University Pickers. The tatted bed skirt was picked from a local thrift store for $3. The vintage tatted coverlet was picked from another local store for $50. It was one of my larger purchases, but it is beautifully handmade. 

This is a closer view of our bed linens. The colors coordinate so well. The softer creams and whites contrast well with the modern red duvet. It makes for a very comfortable night's sleep.

On the other side of the bed is a glass and barn wood cabinet. It was picked at a local craft fair for $20. The vendor lowered the price since the fair was coming to a close. We placed a trio of battery-powered candles in it for display. The drawer below is perfect for holding smalls.

On my husband's nightstand sits a single tatted glove and sample-sized Citrus and Sage Kringle Candle. This smells absolutely amazing. My husband's nightstand used to be his father's, until they've replaced his with a new one. It is perfect for holding an alarm clock and a candle.

On my chair nightstand sits a lovely bunny doll that was picked from a local thrift store for $5. You may have seen her in our second anniversary tea photos. There also sits a lavender sachet made from vintage linen and lace. It was picked from the 2014 Country Living Fair in Stone Mountain, Ga. I love smelling a bit of lavender as I drift off to sleep. Lastly, there sits an antique crystal perfume bottle that I got for free from a very generous lady. I found a pack of 20 or more of those tatted doilies at an estate sale, all for $2.

This is the view of our walls and ceiling in the master bedroom. It is very unusual. We have two mini attics above our closets along with a very large moving glass window above. I think it would be amazing to replace the moving glass window with a stained glass window - it would also be amazingly expensive. It opens up to the open floor-plan living room and kitchen outside.

This is another view of our master bedroom. The mirrored closet to the right is my husband's. To the right of that is the pocket door to the master/ main bathroom. Above the small TV hangs a custom-made family name doily. It was a wedding gift that we treasure.

This sleigh basket was picked from the same car boot sale as the wall sconce for $5. I spray painted the metal frame with Rust-Oleum's Soft Iron. I removed the deteriorating liner from the basket and painted the basket with Olympic's Willow. I then glazed the basket with a nutmeg glaze purchased from Hobby Lobby. I also painted the wooden handle with a sample of Olympic's Spice Delight. I then also glazed the handle using the same glaze as the basket.

I love all things Alice. I picked this print screened White Rabbit pillow from Etsy about 3 years ago. I added it to the basket, along with a paperweight clock, a tatted baby blanket, and dried hydrangeas. I spray painted the dried hydrangeas with Krylon's Metallic Copper and Krylon's Looking Glass.

I use this to end the tour of our master bedroom. It is a Spode "On Your Special Day" ring dish that was picked from a local thrift store for $0.50. It is one of my favorite finds. It is a perfect reminder of that special day!

There will be more tours to come, stay tuned!
