We’ve been making over our Master Bedroom since January and today is the day, y’all! I can’t wait to share this Modern French Country Bedroom Refresh with you!
I think I say this every time I share a room reveal, but I think this one is my favorite. Maybe it’s because I love seeing rooms renewed with our own touches on it.
From an accent wall, to ceiling beams – I cannot wait to get to this room each night!
Let’s go back in time to a few months ago and what this room started like.
What a snoozer! Not that having a bedroom as a snoozer is a bad thing since this is where you want to sleep, but now that it’s a stunner – I admit I sleep better!
Here’s what it looks like now!
Modern French Country Bedroom Refresh
(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)
We started by scraping all the popcorn off our ceilings and that was the first amazing change!
It baffles me when those dated ceiling go bye-bye! So the big purchase item in this room were the ceiling beams.
We have rinky dink walls – the standard 8 foot tall walls – which is a challenge for our house of tall people. So I didn’t want them to feel imposing.
We made these DIY beams out of cedar boards and I LOVE how they turned out! You can read the full tutorial here.
The biggest task in this makeover was sanding this bed down from the original black to this distressed look.
It took us about 10 days from start to finish to get to all those detailed curves, but it was worth it!
I share tips and tricks on how to sand furniture if you want to tackle a large project like this one.
We left our dresser the original black. I thought it was a nice compliment to the accent wall.
We did remove the original mirror and I added this vintage french country mirror in it’s place.
I also updated our matelasse quilt. We had had that quilt for over 10 years and while I loved the look, we were ready for something new.
I found this bedspread from Target. It’s from Chip and Jo’s Hearth and Hand collection and I love the seer-sucker look of the fabric.
I topped it with this chenille blanket to soften the look a bit.
Adding my mineral painted chair in the corner from the sunroom seemed like the perfect fit.
I love how it fits the modern french country vibe.
I love olive trees and these are some of my favorite ones from Ver Decor! Sources coming soon for these!
We updated our bedside tables by changing out the hardware and adding these DIY French Shutter sconces.
The framed prints in this room are from my family’s homestead. They are post cards from the first world war from my great, great uncle.
I plan to scan these in an offer them as printables soon – so stay tuned for that one!
I also added this fun little shelf between our Master Closet and our bathroom doors.
All in all – we are so pleased with this modern french country bedroom refresh!
I have shared all the resources for this room so that all the details of the room are in one post for you.
