Master Bedroom Reveal!

 Let me start this post by saying how much I enjoyed sewing and creating these past 30 days.

One of the most rewarding remodels I’ve ever participated in! Not because of money or exposure as much as transforming a whole entire room and getting that feeling of accomplishment when I finish a large project. Also, it’s a double whammy because I was able to create with my friends! Are you kidding me? Life is good.

My sewing machine has been on overdrive and can I just tell you how wonderful it was to be sewing?!!! Honestly, I don’t have much time to sew lately and a huge thank you to JoAnn Craft Stores and HGTV Home Fabric for reminding me how much I love to sew!!

Alright, lets get down to it. Let’s start with some pillows…Throw Pillows and Shams by U Create

My personal style includes LOTS of pillows on the bed!! You can find the tutorial for my Reversible Throw Pillow Tutorial, and the European, standard, and pin tuck pillow are in the works and will be coming soon!

Are you ready for some BEFORE and AFTER photos?!!

I’m so excited to show you my newly built and tufted headboard!! My fabulous husband, Michael did the building part and I did the button covers and tufting. So much fun and we love how it makes our smallish bedroom look larger!

Before and After - DIY Headboard

Many of you have already asked what fabric I used for my headboard. It’s the HGTV HOME Orbit in color Quartz design. I am so in love with this solid fabric with a zig-zaggy texture!

Holy Moly draperies make such a HUGE difference!! Your probably saying “duh, Kari. You should know this being a DIY/Craft Blogger!” Okay, so I did know this, but I didn’t realize how the curtains would make the whole room look brand new!

Draperies-Before-and-After

This was my very first project in this challenge and I decided I love making draperies. My house is about to get a whole drapery makeover!! So fun!

Next, I lined my lamps with the same fabric I used for my draperies. I love the loopy look and the thick, quality of this home décor!

Before-After-Lamps-U-Create

For those interested, I used HGTV HOME Looped in the color Fog for the draperies and the lamps.

Remember this “blah” area where I had a blank wall and a filing cabinet?! I’ve always wanted a sitting area in my bedroom so we moved the filing cabinet in the basement and found an old chair at a thrift store for only 4 bucks! It’s a steal right?

Before-after-sitting-area

I used that minty green fabric (that I’m in love with by the way!) It’s the same as the headboard fabric but in color Glacier! I love it so much that I’ll definitely be using more of it in other areas of my home!

Oh, and let me give you a close up of the ottoman! A gal needs somewhere to rest her feet after a long day…

The fabric I used for this is called HGTV HOME Chevron Chic in color Glacier.

Here’s a shot of the old quilt I had and one pillow. I knew instantly that my new bedroom needed a duvet!

Pillows-Before-After

The pillows add so much!!! I definitely wasn’t afraid to go nuts with lots of patterns! You won’t believe how easy my new duvet was to create, too! I’ll share the tutorial with you soon and show you how super, simple it is to use that ruffle trim!

Next up? Remember this old pine dresser?! I wanted to paint it for awhile and decided to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and Grey. I topped it with a coat of clear wax…

Dresser-Before-After

…added some new knobs and I had a brand new dresser! The mirror? It’s the same mirror with the top cut off – I wanted the straight edge to be like the headboard.

I hope the photos give you a feel of warmth and peace when you look at them. It’s my new favorite room and I’m always hanging out in there, too!  If you have any questions on this makeover process please feel free to email me and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Again, a HUGE thank you to JoAnn Craft Stores and HGTVHOME for giving me this opportunity to create my dream bedroom.

  4. Hello Kari,

    This looks SENSATIONAL! I LOVE what you've done! I love white so the theme is just perfect and the headboard fabric is great! I was meaning to ask you whether I could do a headboard fabric slipcover with a wooden bed. My bed is oak wood, so I am unsure! please give me your insight!

    Keep up the GREAT work!

    xoxo

    1. Hi Eva,
      First, thank you so much! My husband and I love our new bedroom!
      Secondly, depending on the headboard size, shape you could definitely create a headboard slipcover! Hope on over to Tatertots and Jello and see the one she just did. It's awesome.

  6. What colors did you use on your dresser? I love the look, I might steal it and do the same to some nightstands I just bought at a yard sale. :)

    1. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White for the dresser. The drawers were also Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris Grey. Topped with the clear Annie Sloan wax. No priming or sanding involved with this type of paint - love to work with it!
