I am so excited to finally reveal our newly updated Master Bedroom. This has been months in the making! I shared bits and pieces of the progress a few months back here and here but today I am sharing a quick video…my first ever!
One of our goals for 2017, which I shared here, was to add hardwood floors upstairs. Well, we finally did it. The floors were installed in early September and last week the final paint touch ups were completed. I am so happy we made the move from carpeting upstairs to wood floors. I liked having the carpet when the boys were little and we didn’t have a puppy running around but I absolutely love the wood floors! Enjoy my first video and we will chat about the details after!
Fixer-Upper Style Master Bedroom Reveal
I am loving the transformation. The hardwood floors make all the difference in the world! We matched them with the downstairs flooring which is a 5 inch hand scraped hickory. The hickory is a very warm tone which keep the wood from appearing too cold.
Here’s a quick rundown of everything we did.
- added hardwood
- built a shelf using a 2×10 stained to match vintage chest at foot of the bed. Shelf is attached using Simpson Strong Ties from Home Depot which I sprayed black
- new gun-metal bed found at a local consignment shop
- painted dresser, night stands, mirrors and lamps with Amy Howard One Step Paint
- added an area rug from IKEA
- hung wall sconces from Wayfair
I got the idea of the shelf above the bed from an episode of… you guessed it …The Fixer Upper. It was the on season 4 episode 16. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do my version of it above our bed. Such an easy projects with a big impact. I did something similar in the sitting room.
Master Bedroom Reveal
The area rug is from IKEA. This is actually two area rug that I placed together. I used the recommended rug pad from IKEA which feels a bit tacky/sticky and it keeps the two rugs together and stays in place.
I shared the sitting room before but I wanted you to see the difference the hard wood makes in here. EEK, I LOVE IT! The chairs are the same ones I bought when I was pregnant with my first boys. I had them reupholstered. They are in fantastic shape and are super comfy. I added the same IKEA rug in here to help keep the two room cohesive. I also added the ottoman from IKEA ektorp series. You can see a small stand on the fireplace hearth…a GoodWill find. This is kind of totally my space!

I love this credenza I bought from Goodwill for $40. I gave it a quick coat of paint and added my DIY shelves above it. Almost everything on the shelves are treasures I found at Goodwill.
I hope you enjoyed my Master Bedroom Reveal and my first ever video.
Until Next Time,
