Good Morning, lovelies! I changed around my schedule of the posts that would be published because I wanted to give this information. Since I posted a sneak peek of our master bedroom on Instagram a few days ago, I’ve had many people request information on what we’ve done so far.
To get started, I’ll post a picture of what I wanted, and how I achieved it. The last picture will be the picture I posted on Instagram.
This is the lamp I wanted from Pier 1. I kept going back and forth about whether or not to buy it. I ended up buying two from Ross because they were half the price of those at Pier 1.
In the last picture, you’ll see the lamps we purchased instead of the lamps from Pier 1. I really should have just bought the ones I wanted because I ALWAYS buy sale items from Pier 1, and the exact lamps I wanted were on sale so many times.
The ones below also had crystal, but the shade was gray. Again, I didn’t do anything to them until we decided that we were going with cream walls instead of gray walls. The spray paint used was a Satin Heirloom White by Rustoleum. We sprayed these shades to turn them cream.
The next item is the nightstand. I really wanted true mirrored nightstands. We’ve had these Hayworth nightstands from Pier 1 since about 2006…or earlier…not sure. I had searched Amazon and found a set, but after thinking about it, we decided we would try to change these before buying something new. In the last picture, you’ll see how we used a gloss, cream spray paint and were able to get them to match the colors in the room.
We also changed the knobs to crystal knobs. I ordered a 10-pack of those from Amazon. You can click on the picture below to view/order your own set. We used these because our bathroom also has crystal in it. Oh, I can’t wait to show you the finished product.
The headboard below is the one we’ve had now for about a year. This is the headboard I’ve wanted because I wanted a tufted headboard. This is the Hayworth from Pier 1.The next important thing we wanted in our bedroom was the look of hotel/honeymoon suite/magazine beauty exuding luxury. Of course, I didn’t want us to spend a ton of money though.
Something I wanted in the bedroom was the look of wall paper without the fuss. The next best thing? A stenciled wall. We only wanted the stencil design to be behind the bed. The picture below is the exact stencil we purchased from Home Depot. I had found other stencils on Amazon, but this one was one-tenth of the price of some of those.
The base color on our wall is Fox Trot in a satin finish. The paint we used for stenciling is Atrium White in high gloss. They’re Valspar from Lowe’s.
This mirror below is another example of me always trying to find something cheaper than what I wanted. We had gone to Home Goods and I saw THE mirrors I wanted in the room. What did I do? Sort of settle…again…we purchased two other mirrors that would look good in our room, but all along, I just knew it wasn’t the look I wanted.
On the third trip to Home Goods…the beaded mirrors came home with me hehe. I couldn’t stop thinking about them. That’s how I know when I really want something. I will think and dream about it until I get it. This is the rug we have in our room in an 8×10 size. You can click on the picture below to see/search/buy it. We opted for a lighter rug because Milt laid down dark wood flooring.
I have linked as many items as I can in a slideshow below besides the one where I wrote you can click the picture.
I seriously cannot WAIT to share the rest of the room with you. We still have wall decor to buy/put up. We have to paint the closet and build in drawers, shelves, and clothing racks. On the wall opposite the bed, we’ll have a tv, crystal sconces, a built-in fireplace, drawers, and hopefully a glass cabinet display.
The quilt set is from Sam’s Club, but the duvet is from Pier 1. It’s not on the bed yet because I need to get a blanket for it. The bedskirt is so cute! It has gem stones in it. It’s from Kohl’s. You can’t see all the pillows, so I linked one above and I also linked a mink blanket similar to the one we purchased.
And the sneak peek…
If I have missed anything, or if you have specific questions, please comment below. I won’t be able to work on my bedroom for about three weeks, so there’ll be a lag, but once we start again, it’ll get done quickly.
What do you think so far?
