Master Plan for the Master Bedroom

Ryan’s work schedule will be changing for a while, which means I get a chance to actually USE my bedroom!  Of course, this means that I’ll want to do/make/change something, so I figured I’d make a list of the things I like and don’t like, and a few ideas.

On another note, if I ever did open a studio, we would totally have to rearrange the house. The light in this room is incredible!

Things I like: 


My ruffly Cynthia Rowley throw pillows.

{Confession: I won’t allow them on the bed because I’m afraid they’ll actually get used. }



The light!!! Seriously. It’s such a sad sad shame that the shades and curtains seem to always be drawn. It’s such a beautiful room when they’re open! Curse you, night-shift!


This {ahem} FABULOUS piece of art. The texture and metallic sheen make me a little swoon-y. The fact{s} that it was free, easy, is huge, and I made it myself surprises me. I’m not the most artistic gal.


My dyed velvet chair and gold snakeskin lampshade make me SO happy.  Both were super easy projects!

{On a side note, I’m starting to realize that I pretty much made/upcycled everything in here!}

Things I want: headboard that looks like this. Or any headboard, really. I hate not having one!

{Ooh, look. The pillows match mine. That’s clearly a sign, right?}

A quartz mirror like this one.  Plus, anything else I see on the Hunted Interior. I’m obsessed with her blog.

I’ve already changed our louvered laundry doors because of her! They are SO much better now!

We’ll see if I can get/keep it clean long enough to actually pull off a project!

  1. How did you make that gorgeous painting? I am thinking of making something similar for the living room, but I don’t know where to start.

    • Hi, Anne. I am somehow just seeing your comment nearly a year later…I am so sorry! This project was actually the product of 2 glasses of wine, an old painting, and some leftover interior house paint that had been left open and had thickened. I poured the white semi gloss paint into the old painting, frame and all, and let it dry for a few hours. It was SUPER viscous, so it wasn’t completely hardened yet when I hit it with some good spray paint in a circular shape. I kept the cannister really close to the surface so it would kind of splatter and spread. After everything was dry I took a small paint brush and covered any spots that ended up with over spray and made the edges of the circle really sharp.
