Master bedroom Before and After

Ready for a little crazy boldness? I debated waiting to "reveal" our bedroom because there's still work to be done. There are several layers left to add before we can slap a "finished" label on it. But for now, we'll celebrate that the painting is finished and boy was it a big, 'ol job!

So, let's take a look at the before shot of our belongings with the previous owners' paint/fan selection.

BEFORE:

SEMI-AFTER:
Isn't it wild what a little paint can do?! 

Other changes? The posters on our bed are adjustable so I took out the center pieces. The bed seemed a bit overpowering with the tall posters in. Did you notice the semi-missing ceiling fan? We thought we could replace the blades and save a little money by not replacing the entire fan. Turns out, that's not the case with this specific fan. So add that to the list of things still needed to complete this room.

As much as this space is SCREAMING for an amazing chandelier instead of a ceiling fan, it's just not practical friends...remember, we live in hot, hot Texas.

Anyone remember this architectural piece from Bryn's room in the Austin house? I was super excited when I realized it was the perfect piece for our bedroom. 

I'd like to add a plant or two to bring in a little, natural life and greenery.

The angles of the ceiling made for a fun canvas when it came to painting the black portion.

And, yes, it goes allllll the way across the ceiling. Insert neck pain here!

Here's the very unfinished other side of the room. Pretty sure that little bench will get some new clothes at some point. I'm not one for clutter, minimalism is my friend, so the dresser will likely stay free of "stuff." One of my goals with this paint design was to make the television disappear. Pretty sure I nailed that goal!

It almost looks like a piece of art when the tv is on. 

Let's round out the room with a picture from yesterday's post so you can get the full effect from all angles.

I'm planning to let the remainder of accessories slowly evolve in this space. I'll pick up a piece here and there as I see something that floats my boat. For now, I love that it feels like we're living in our room instead of the previous owners'. And, I also love that it's one-of-a-kind!

Wow, that is so dramatic!! Only you could think of that! I love the wooden piece above the bed, such great scale to compliment your wide stripe! I'm waiting for the finale to pin. :)

And, I love the rug, bed and painted window.

Dana! That stripe across the ceiling - love it! The TV is totally hidden, what a great idea. And how cool that you can change the posts on your bed…..that is a dramatic difference. You are endlessly creative!

Ooooooooooooooooooh yeah, baby! I'm not a super modern girl, but this.is.stunning!!

I've got round basket things (there must be a word for them?) hanging on the wall above our bed, so I may be a *bit* biased, but having something circular and natural mixed in with all the crisp and modern going on in there makes me all kinds of happy. That stripe took some serious guts - and it totally paid off!

I love the bold stripe! It also works really well with the rug, which I really like.

I didn't even notice there was a tv above the dresser until you mentioned it... so I think you achieved your goal.
