Farmhouse Master Bedroom Reveal - One Room Challenge

Its reveal day! I'm typing this late at night because we cut it pretty darn close on this one!


Even though this challenge was a 6 week challenge, we did most of the work over a period of 6 days. Approximately 1 day a week. I tell you this, not to brag or complain, but because I want you to see how doable a room makeover is, even when you don't have weeks and weeks to work on it!

I'm not going to spend a lot of time talking, but I do want to refresh your memory on where our room started. Keep in mind this room is the "master" at whopping 10x12.


We removed the carpet and stripped the floors before we moved in. Full disclosure? They're still unfinished. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do, so I left them for now. The addition of a rug is enough to make the room feel finished.

My original design board ended up being pretty accurate other than I switched the rug out.


Other things on the list included switching out the fan for a new light, adding trim work and painting the whole room.

Okay, now the pretty pictures!!

As you enter the room, the first thing you see is my wardrobe (and yes it really is my closet!) and a full length mirror that my dad built for me.

A plant and a vintage crock help with the awkward layout of the room. I kept artwork minimal, instead allowing the trim work to add texture and interest.

I debated on what to do with the wall next to the closet. We talked about a barn door at one point, but instead we painted the door the same color as the rest of the room - BM Simply White (mixed in Glidden Diamond). The cow skull was a gift from my grandpa and the inspiration behind my blog logo. Its one of my favorite things ever.

That's right, the whole room is Simply White (flat finish!)...walls, trim, and ceiling. Its amazing how much it brightens the room and because we chose a flat finish it helps minimize all the imperfections in our plaster walls.

I love our room!

Our last master bedroom (it's so different!)  had many of the same elements, but this version is so much more us. It gives me a little taste of what the rest of the farmhouse can look like with with a lot of elbow grease. I can't even explain how excited I am to tackle another room! This room also gives me confidence in my design decisions. I am really good at getting the foundation of a room to look good, but this is the first room that I feel like my vision and the outcome matched perfectly! I am learning where to invest my money and where to take advantage of my love of vintage and antiques. We still have a few things to add and change, but for now, this room is a breathe of fresh air in a house that still needs a TON of work!

What do you think?
Also, I am happy to answer any questions you might have! I'm sure I missed some crucial detail.

Oh, and be sure to head over to Calling it Home to see the reveals from the other 200+ bloggers! Amazing stuff and I am honored to have my little room linked up among them! Also, a BIG thank you to Linda for hosting such an awesome event!

Farmhouse Master Bedroom - ORC week 5

Its week 5...say what!?

I've accomplished almost nothing in the room itself. Yup, still not painted  (that's on the list for Sunday...), but once the room IS painted we can load everything in. 

I thrive under pressure. Trust me. haha!

So, what have I got done you wonder?

Well, I painted my wardrobe in a beautiful Putty color from Fusion Mineral Paint. I love this paint so much and can't wait to see it next to white walls! This shot doesn't do it justice! I'll be dedicating a whole post to it after the reveal when I have pretty pictures! (you can see the BEFORE here).

Other than that, I've been gathering accessories.

I especially love these vintagey bronze/brass pulls from Hobby Lobby! My husband found them and I think they will be perfect with all the other brass accessories!

I have a few other things, but I'll share those in the big reveal next week!! 

As usual, head over to Calling it Home to see what the other guest participants are up too!





Farmhouse Master Bedroom - a rug and a wardrobe. Week 4 ORC

Week 4.

We're over the hump and things should be wrapping up, but we still have a ways to go - like I haven't patched a single nail hole or even put a coat of paint on anything, but who cares about that? Especially when I have a gorgeous new rug to swoon over!

I was all set to order this rug, but in the last second I spied this kilim which happened to be the exact colors I was looking for. You may remember me saying in Week 2 that I didn't want this style of rug, but that's partly because I was having trouble finding one that wasn't predominantly red or if I was finding them, I couldn't justify spending $1000+ on a single rug. Ouch. I happened upon this one when I got smart and switched the sort method to "low to high" ...duh. Since it was one-of-a-kind, I got it ordered as quick as I could, figuring if I hated it I could return it and order the other one, but luckily I LOVE it!!

Getting the rug also allowed me to get going on another project. The wardrobe that will be my closet space...

Yesssss....

This will be all the closet space I get. ALL. OF. IT. I think that should be plenty of space for my six flannels and a couple pairs of boots (insert laughing/crying emjoii here) right? I've already started painting it a pretty putty color! I'll share more next week!

So that is all for this week! Not much, but lots of decisions made and ready for install as soon as I get the walls painted! 

Be sure to head over to Calling It Home to see what the other guest participants are up too! There are some amazing spaces that I can't wait to see the final results of!!!
