Master Bedroom Inspiration!

For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the picture of paint chips that I posted on Sunday. I am trying to pick a colour for our master bedroom and I am getting no where fast. I am horrible at picking paint colours. What I am good at though, is pinning ideas on Pinterest!

The whole master bedroom makeover is pretty much entirely in my head right now so I am still pushing around ideas of what I want and I am perfectly aware that the finished product will probably look very different from what I think it will. But it's just so much fun to plan! And because I assume that others also take pleasure in looking at ideas, I thought it would be fun to show you guys some pictures of what I am currently loving for a master bedroom makeover right now.

First of all, paint. I am in love with the idea of a nice rich bright blue on one wall and a light grey on the remaining three walls. These are the pins that I am using for inspiration.

I don't want to paint all the walls blue because I'm worried it will make our small bedroom feel even smaller and that it will feel too dark. Currently we have three white walls and one baby blue wall so I am pretty used to a "light" feel in the room.

Once the walls are painted, we will be adding in new furniture. Our current set was given to us for free and it has worked well for us these past six years. But I am ready for something new, with more of an "us" feel to it. And the best way to give us that feel is to make it ourselves! I found plans for a bed and Dan jumped on board. So we are currently in the process of making ourselves a new bed frame, inspired from this.

It will look similar, with some of our own tweaks and adjustments to it. Oh and we won't be painting it white. The plan is to do it in a nice dark stain.

While looking for bed plans, I also came across plans to make our own side tables and dressers. Dan isn't quite on board with the idea of making our entire bedroom set so we'll see if that actually happens. Either way, I'm loving the looks of these side tables. The first picture is the size we'd go with and the second picture is how I'd want to paint/stain them.

Aren't they pretty? Dreaming about these things is half the fun. Even if we go with something entirely different, I'm having a blast looking up stuff.

We would probably need two dressers to hold all of our clothes, and I like the idea of one longer one and one taller one. Once again, probably wouldn't be painted white but I love the looks of these two.

Once all the furniture is in, we would be able to start decorating! I don't have any huge plans for this, since I don't like a cluttered room, but I have a few thoughts up my sleeve. We currently have a wedding photo and our vows above our bed and I am thinking about upgrading them to something a little more like this.

And of course we'd need a mirror above the longer dresser. I need to be sure I look good before leaving the house and I use our current dresser mirror often. We have one of those old flat mirrors from our basement bathroom that we took out when we did that room makeover, but I hate the looks of it. So I have been researching ways to make it more visually appealing. The current winner, adding a nice white frame to it.

Obviously it would look different than the above photo, mostly because it wouldn't be in a bathroom, but you get the general idea.

That's it for my ideas so far. I still haven't decided on what style of curtain I want but that's next on my list of things to research.

I'm having so much fun planning and hope that you enjoyed my little share on what's going on inside my head these last few days. Anyone else doing any room makeovers? Or just dreaming about them like myself?

  1. Ooh! Fun ideas! And so ambitious too! The extent of my bedroom makeover is to put boxes away and finish putting up picture frames. :)

  2. Jackie- Thanks! I realize I am planning big but it's still fun to plan. And your bedroom makeover sounds much more budget friendly and doable than mine. ;)

  4. I love the two-tone stain for the nightstands/dressers! Can't wait to see it all start to take shape!
