Hello my friends! I hope you’re doing well! I’ve been busy finishing up a big paint job in our master bedroom. This room isn’t completely finished just yet — I’d like to add some decorative touches to complete the space. But until I can get into a HomeGoods again, this is where we’re at. 🙂
Let’s look back at where we started! This is how the room looked before moving in:
It’s a long room and much skinnier than our old master, but still has lots of space. We LOVE all of the windows in here!
Then I hung our drapes and roman shades and that was about it:
I’d love to lighten up the window treatments someday — both the shades and the curtains. But these were super affordable and they block the light big time. We need DARKNESS when we sleep so light blocking drapes are non-negotiable. (I’ll list sources for everything in this room at the bottom of the post!)
Eventually I hope to find lighter treatments that still keep it dark at night…but I’m not super hopeful that I’ll find them without spending a fortune. So until I find exactly what I want, these work great! (The drapes come in a few colors and are SUPER long, which is hard to find!)

Oh, and we had the hardwoods continued in here as well. We were lucky to get just enough to do this room and my office — the floors were discontinued soon after we moved in.
After all of that I focused on other projects around the house for a bit. I tend to flit from project to project…if you haven’t noticed. Ha! I finally finished up the paint on the chair rail and below last week. I used the same color as the tray ceiling — Westchester Gray by Sherwin-Williams.
This space is SO cozy and warm…we absolutely love it! Here’s how it looks now:
I hope to find some new throw pillows and a blanket for the bed (I stole the long pillow from the mud room for these pics).
Now more than ever, I wanted this room to feel like a warm “hug” — a little hokey I know, but home has never meant more!
I thought about painting the window trim for a hot second…and then quickly decided against it. It will take forever. Maybe I’ll do it eventually but I’m waiting on that project!
Here’s a look at my favorite side of the room before:
And here it is now with the wood beams, wallpaper, trim and paint:
I was planning to paint that dresser, but after I painted I changed my mind…for now. I like the wood tone against the gray. We’ll see what happens. 🙂
This room gets a TON of natural light, so it was easy to go darker with the paint and ceiling. It’s still super bright and light. But at night it feels like a cocoon and we love it:
This isn’t the final reveal…I’ll zhuzh it up some more when I can shop again. 🙂 But I’ve worked really hard on this space and wanted to share the progress!
I’ve been getting a ton done lately! Not all super exciting stuff, but I’m getting a bunch knocked off my to do list. It feels good! I’m going to tackle a few more small projects and then start another big one that involves a lot of painting.
