Master Bedroom ~ Reveal!

Hooray!  It's finally done!

Last year I hired Autumn from Design Dump (Nicole's Sister In-law) to create an e-design for my master bedroom.  Ever since Nicole introduced me to Autumn several years ago, I have admired her classy style. My master bedroom has been baby central for eight years and was in need of big change. I knew she would be the perfect person to help make our bedroom a pretty and peaceful place to be. I think it worked, because I keep finding my hubby in there relaxing. 

My request for the e-design was to keep the cost low by diy-ing most of the projects,  But to be totally honest, even when diy-ing,  it's still expensive to decorate a room when you are starting from scratch. I started with two dressers and a bed, that's pretty much it.  I stretched the expenses over a year, buying items and materials monthly to make it affordable for me.  I love that these projects pushed me to sew and build way beyond my comfort level, and save a few bucks in the process. I have learned a lot over the year!

Here are some of the changes we made to the room-








I had to throw in a couple of before & after pictures!  The changes even shocked me!
What I love about Autumn's designs are the details.  She has an amazing eye for detail, from the trim on the pillows and curtains, to the contrasting fabric in the bedskirt. I really love everything about the room! 

Here is a list of all the diy projects from the past year.  Hopefully they will get your wheels turning and help you make a room in your house a place you LIKE to be! Thanks Autumn!
(And thanks Nicole for your hard work on the ikea dressers, they are definitely the highlight of the room!)

Thanks everyone for leaving so many kind comments on the bedroom, and a HUGE thanks to those of you that have cheered me along the way! I feel a huge relief now that it is done! I need to add that Autumn was so great to work with, her room plans were amazingly detailed and professional.

Wow!! It truly is magnificent!! I am hoping to do the same thing on our bed wall (in front of a huge window) and I love this idea!! Could you tell me how many curtain panels you used? I am assuming you had more than one pair on each side of your window because they look so full??
Thank you!!

Bryan is one lucky man! Your room is heavenly - fit for the Angel you are!

Norazihan said...

Wow! I must say it's a job well done! I love how you've transform the stuffy looking room to a beautiful large comfortable bedroom. The wall to wall curtain did wonders and color selection is awesome. Wish I have the creativity to transform my room to something like yours. Congratulations. And thank you for sharing you work.

Katherine said...

Beautiful! Can you post the wall and side table colors? Thanks!

Michelle Smoot Hyde said...

Candace, you two should have your own show! I know a guy with some money that you could hit up to produce your show!!! He is a money manager! Bedroom turned out incredible!

Lena said...

Candace, A couple of your links: specifically the Ikea curtains and Roman shades are going to the wrong page. I'd love to see the correct link for both. Your bedroom is gorgeous.

Lynna said...

Looks gorgeousss!!

GreenDust said...

The layout of this bedroom looks just like mine. I have a Q... How many rods did you use?
I see 2, one on each side. But the middle one? is it a tension rod or___?
