master bedroom makeover

welcome to my *new* master bedroom! i think it turned out awesome! the yellow flower pillows were my inspiration for this makeover. then i redid my headboard {see this post} and then decided to go with gray with accents of yellow. not too girly for Davis, but not too manly for me.

and as you can see, i still need window treatments. i had some white tiered drapes i got online, but i didn’t notice the material was tulle until after i opened the box. ugh. Davis thought they looked like wedding dresses on our windows…. i had to agree! so, i’m back to base 1 on those. 

there were several projects i did for this makeover. i’ll post more details and a couple tutorials later. :)
we got this dresser at goodwill for $30. it was an ugly wood with large brass handles. after a fresh coat of black paint and some shiny new hardware, it’s gorgeous! side note: Davis and i bought that mirror on our 1 year anniversary. :)

i made this canvas wall hanging with my Silhouette……have i told you how much i love my Silhouette?!

i love these ruffle lamp shade! got them at target. on clearance. oh yeah!

Davis and i love the new look of our room! if you want to see what it looked like before, check it out here.

    Love it! I am glad to know I am not the only one who 'goodwill' shops. I love spring/summer – I really hit up the yard sales for good finds that can be 'refurbished'. :)

    Hi! I was wondering where you got the cabinet that you have the alarm clock on? We are going to be moving soon and the master will be much smaller. I need to find a way to balance out loosing our second dresser and that looks like it would be perfect, but I've never seen one!

    Super cute remodel! I LOVE the black furniture (did you have to use any special paint?), but I'll admit I'm sad to see the red leave. Great job!

    I love the "new" dresser – I want to paint our sideboard, but I keep chickening out. Perhaps this spring…

    Hello Linda, I just hopped over from CreativeJewishMom's linky party. You have great taste in crafts and decor! I look forward to catching up on your old posts. I really like the t-shirt pom poms. Both my daughters collect t-shirts from every event they attend, so this would be fun for them to create from the old ones.
    PS You have an adorable family!
