Master Bedroom Before and After

Well, we are finally getting settled into our new apartment and I am just now realizing that I never posted pictures of the finished rooms in our old apartment.  

I did the master gradually but a few months after I finished it I made a couple little changes (you might notice some differences in the pics)

Before:



After:
The closet framed with curtains and behind-the-door purse storage:


You might remember these pictures from this post.  They are from this photo shoot.


I painted this Asian screen white and I have used it for a backdrop in this shoot and this one.


This was my favorite photo from the shoot.  Liz is seriously amazing.


We inherited this dresser.  I painted it white because I paint everything white. Obviously I hadn't finished it yet in these pics.


Fan from Walmart.  Love the dresser drawers.




Made these curtains for the slanted windows.  Ross $2 a panel, and the top is a sheet.


The window was Trey's "studying corner" with his desk and his beta. :)


The same curtain and rod that frames the closet also hides this door for a little more privacy.


My little letter desk from Jr. High that I have kept with me all these years.  I painted it black and spruced up the knobs a little bit.


Another one of my favorite photos from the shoot over the bed with those velvet pillows I fell in love with:


Love my zebra print bed sham.

I should maybe be embarrassed about this picture but it is one of my very favorite pictures...mostly because I took it on our belated honeymoon on the beach so its special :)


I love these side tables...tops covered with contact paper.



Make way for the pets:



Ahh my lovely pillows again...


...and drawers...

your bedroom is just too good, looks comfortable and cozy and very well decorated, from the bedside tables to chest of drawers and the small writing desk, everything is just great, white in color and very well combined to make a beatiful and lovable room - AboutCabinets BLog

Anna from Lona de Anna said...

Honey..you have done an amazing job..absolutely love it..and love the pops of colour here and there...I couldn't help but imagine that gorgeous white screen you painted used as a headboard..it would look awesome behind your bed..in a gorgeous pale duck egg blue,or Smokey grey...to compliment your velvet cushions. Great work lovely x
