Drum Roll Please…..!
It is finally here!
The long awaited master bedroom reveal!
I know it seems like we have been working on this project for a really, really, really long time. That’s because we have been working on our room for a really, really, really, long time.
But, it is finally ready for the big reveal!
Before our Remodeling
Before I show you too many pictures of the final bedroom remodel, I want to remind you what this space looked like when we first bought the house.
Quite the project, right?
We did a lot of work on it which is detailed in my master bedroom design plans and master bedroom progress report posts. If you want to know all of the changes, you can hop on over and read what we did.

Master Bedroom Reveal
Now that you have a sense of what our bedroom looked like, take a look at these after pictures.
We moved our closet so we could have more space in our master bathroom when we remodeled that room. I love having a walk in closet! (You can check out the master closet reveal here.) And that gave us a full wall to set up this little sitting area and fireplace.
One thing that was lacking in our original master bedroom was a heater. This electric fireplace provides an option for heat until we figure out a more permanent solution. Plus it looks amazing!
Master Suite Design Elements
One thing we worked really hard on from a design sense, was creating a cohesive feel between our master bedroom and bathroom. It was important to create a sense of unity between the two spaces since they are part of the same suite.
I did this by using similar colors, patterns, and fixtures throughout both rooms. Our accent colors in both rooms were teal and navy blue on a gray and white neutral background. I was able to incorporate elements with these colors into each room.
One simple project that added a splash of color were my diy pillows. Decorative pillows are a great way to add color to a room.
I used bronze elements in both of our rooms including turning a ceramic vase into faux brushed bronze with spray paint for our master bedroom decor. The fan in our master bedroom and the lights in our bathroom have the same crystal pattern.
Another thing that was important to us in this remodeling project, was to keep and restore any of the old elements of the room that were worth saving.
We kept and refinished the hardwood floor, trim, and door. This included patching the holes in our hardwood floor and fixing some holes in our painted trim. We enhanced the look of the room by adding a tray ceiling. This brings out the natural beauty of the curved windows.
Adding other pops of color into the room worked to create a cozy space. And finding ways to do this through cheap DIY decor like my simple branch dollar tree decor and refinishing the old side table we found in our home when we purchased it, made these projects feasible for our budget.
One of my favorite elements that we added to our room is the stenciled accent wall. The technique I used makes the wall look like wall paper, but it is actually all stenciled with paint. You can read the tutorial on how to create this stenciled wall here.
There were a lot of aspects that went into finishing this room, including converting our old sleigh bed into a more modern bed for our sophisticated master bedroom. We also made our own fabric headboard to match the sitting chairs we purchased for our room.
Here is what we used to complete our Master Bedroom. I tried to link to the original sources, but if I couldn’t find them, I linked to something similar. I gave three options for the chairs, since I couldn’t find the exact chairs we purchased. All of them are similar, but have a slightly different profile.
