The first room of our massive renovation is 100% completed! I may have panicked a little about not having a room ready for Kaia when she was born, which put the breaks on the kitchen renovation. In all fairness, I was nesting and had no where to nest! So hubby started the new master bedroom rebuild.
We decided to make the office/ playroom our new master bedroom and our old master Kaia’s room/ part of the office we plan to put in. The playroom/ office was a large bonus room that had a wonky closet with shelves. We believe the space may have been the very original garage in 1971.
(terrible before photos but I always forget to take them!)
To start, we closed in the nook to the wonky closet to make it a large walk-in pantry for the kitchen. Doing that now made the master bedroom a rectangle, which is easier to work with. We put a wall up on the other side of the room to build a large walk-in closet. I’ll share all about our closet later, promise!
Next came paint, then framing the doors and windows like we have been putting in the whole house. A tutorial is in the works. Then we installed baseboards, doors, hardware and then floors.
Final step was moving over and decorating, yay!
Decorating budget was VERY minimal so I had to re-purpose a few things from other areas of the house. I knew my husband really liked the dark blue and I knew I wanted to add a rust color, thankfully these two colors can complement each other so I ran with those colors and created this as my inspiration board.
Since the bedroom is highly visible off the main living and kitchen space it needed to look polished and finished. I am still shopping for the right pillows that offer a more layered textured look but I am happy with these for now.
I found some cool artwork for $5 on Etsy, spent $5 to print and $15 for a frame so new art work was only $25!
Since the budget isn’t currently there, I kept all furniture which we repainted black years ago. To add some coziness and finish off the look I added curtains and plants. I really wanted a real fiddle leaf for our room and I got lucky Home Depot had some one day, unfortunately they were not in great shape. So, I have been nursing this one back to health slowly.
I think the bedroom is such a special place and a room where you want to add your personal, more meaningful items so, I sprinkled in some meaningful books and photos and may add a few more later.
Overall, I am happy with how the space turned out. Since the room is right off the living space, the kids and I are often in and out during the day, my mirror almost always has little hand prints and there is likely a few toys at the end of the bed. Those kind of things are what make this room part of our home and crashing here after a long day is the best place in the whole world to me.
