Master Bedroom Reveal, for now…..
Our Master bedroom reveal, for the time being, and how we are mixing masculine and feminine to create a room we both love.
Today’s the day! Are you as excited as I am for this Master Bedroom Reveal? We totally transformed our Master Bedroom suite into a beautiful sanctuary that makes both my husband and myself happy!
In my previous post about planning and making over this room, I touched on the fact that my husband really wanted to be included in this room with touches of masculine here and there.
Once the hardwood floors were installed and we completed painting, he really stressed the fact that he wanted to be included in the design process, which I thought is so cute!
I completely respect that and after all, that is what marriage is about, compromise and coming together as a team.
Our bed was the main focal point of the room.
We purchased it 10 years ago at American Signature Furniture in Brentwood, TN and it was our first (and maybe only) splurge purchase.
I added this painting my father in law painted for me with my favorite flower, the hydrangea.
I paired it with a hope chest that came from my great grandmother, but this is just temporary until we complete our final makeover.
The huge bed is a gorgeous masculine statement to the room, but I added a feminine touches with matelasse bedding.
Lighter walls make it seem brighter, but the darker curtains bring back in the touch of masculinity.
They are a shiny silk with adds that balance of boy vs girl.
We are reusing the curtains in this space from our previous home, since new curtains weren’t in the budget. Since the curtains were too long, I folded them over until they were at the desired length. Then I hung with the curtain clips.
You can’t even see the fake hem.
So I have to address the faux floral arrangement. I’m usually not a fake flower kinda girl, But the space was bare due to our future plan for that wall.
Behind that wall sits a hidden and oddly placed bathroom. We are going to gut the bathroom and close the existing door on the other side in our family room. Then we’ll open this wall and create a second master closet which will hopefully increase our home value!
**Update** To see how we completed this, click here.
Spray painting door knobs and hinges and changing out dated outlets and light switches is an easy way to bring a house up to date.
Trent also spray painted our floor vents as well – and they look so handsome!
His nightside drum table is simple. A vintage cobalt blue and pewter jar that was in his house growing up sits atop his table.
My side has more feminine touches with a candle a a sweet picture of my boys when they were little.
We took this bedroom from dark and dreary to bright and welcoming,
from dated and dirty to fresh and clean,
and from yellowed trim to white and fresh.
We love this temporary Master Bedroom reveal, even thought I have a few more touches here and there that I’d love to add down the road. But for now, it’s peaceful and serene and both of us are happy!

It is just gorgeous! I love the masculinity mixed with the feminine touches! Your bed is gorgeous and I love both nightstands. Thanks for sharing with SYC. I will be featuring you this week.
Wow! What a transformation! Your goal of having a masculine meets feminine room was definitely accomplished! Thank you for sharing at Talented Tuesdays!
What a great transformation! I really like the bed! Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board

Thanks for the pin! Love linking to your site each week!
It's so easy to do, super cheap and such a bold transformation! Glad you were inspired!
Great makeover – so bright and relaxing feeling, but with plenty of masculine details! It's a hard balance to achieve, but you did a great job! Thanks for linking up with us at The Creative Circle! – Angela, Blue i Style
You did an amazing job to your bedroom! So lovely! I so want one like this for my house! Thanks for sharing this with us at Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party! Pinned this to our board!
Wow gorgeous! I love the mix of masculine and feminine! Also I definitely want to remember your handy tips of spray painting door knobs and hinges.
That's a relief! Those floors were quite the obstacle, but we adore them now! Good luck with finding new spots for your things – hopefully your out of pocket costs will be small!
We've just moved and I'm trying to minimise new purchases and work with what we have as much as possible. You have some great ideas here, thanks. Luckily we don't need a new floor so it should be a little more pain free than your experience!
Thanks Carrie! I'm so glad you stopped by – be sure to check the links for the tutorial about our floors. We were able to save big on that remodel.
I love what you guys have done to this master bedroom! I can totally understand why you splurged on buying the bed–its worth spending money to make sure you both sleep well! I think my favorite part is the floors–they're gorgeous!
Thank you for hosting each week, Marty!
Such a bright and inviting room. Beautifully done. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.
This is a lovely makeover. I love the contrast of the dark furniture with the flooring. Beautifully done!
Thanks – its funny… I didn't notice the stark contrast until I saw the room in photos. Funny how the eye tricks you – I appreciate you stopping by!
Thank you Timi!
This is a whole new space! It's open and airy and bright!
The room looks wonderful! A great mix of masculine and feminine!
