Green Master Bedroom: Before and After

Green Master Bedroom: Before and After

Welcome to our final week of the 2018 Fall (for all the northern hemisphere peeps) One Room Challenge.  So excited – today I get to share with you my green master bedroom makeover and all the gorgeous details!!

One last reminder of what my green master bedroom looked like a mere 6 weeks ago…  Not terrible but just boring, cluttered and unfinished!

Well now…  Can’t say that I have a boring master bedroom anymore!!  I LOVE this room now!  It even beats my tween daughter’s room makeover I reckon!  It shows what you can do with a small budget and some great ideas!

The biggest risk I took with this master bedroom makeover was adding the wood boards behind the bed. 

Would you believe it’s actually freebie pallet wood from hubby’s work that I taped on to the brick wall and then painted over.  Love how much it changes the look and feel of the room!

The existing furniture like the bed and bedside tables, I kept.  So it was a matter of sourcing cheaply and easily the smaller pieces.  Whatever I found guided the design decisions!

For example the IKEA wall lamps, sourced secondhand meant we were having wall lamps instead of bedside lamps.  These ones aren’t wired in, you just attach the base to the wall. 

I painted the metal bases in black with Fusion Mineral Paint (I love this paint!) to fit in with the style of the room.

These original Australian landscape paintings below, were an op shop/ thrift store find.  I shopped the house for them!

The bamboo basket is from IKEA and was completely a spur of the moment purchase while looking for black handles for the bedside tables.   The basket is handy for storing the cushions off the bed!

These inexpensive sheer net curtains were from IKEA, and I love the pretty scalloped edge they have.  Hubby was just pleased they were replacing the vintage lace curtains I had got. Unfortunately, there was a few too many small tears in the vintage ones due to age.

Every girl needs a pretty journal next to her bed… Well at least this one does! 🙂

Hubby’s bedside table decor got a big tick of approval.  A key change was putting the clutter away, and keeping it simple.  I think he liked the black candle I bought for his side, even more than I did!

And there you go… one green master bedroom makeover!
