If you saw my last DIY post, you might remember how I built myself some antique architectural charm to go above my doors & windows in my kitchen. Today I thought I would break down all the elements in our master bedroom & highlight some of the projects that pulled it all together.
Our house was pretty "blah" when we moved it. I mean, the bones were good, but nothing special. So I've been trying to pretty it up as best as we can.
One of my favorite details we added to the space is this reclaimed faux fireplace built out of pallets and 2x4's. You can see the how to HERE.
I also wanted a touch of elegance in the space, and this soft tufted headboard is one of my favorite projects ever. We are all about saving money here in the Hathaway household, so it's pretty funny when people come to our house for the very first time and ask where we got our stuff... and I'm like everything except the living room couches has pretty much been built, or second hand refurbished by us. Haha!
The tutorial for this pretty headboard can be found HERE.
You can see both of the pediment arches in this photo above our closet & bathroom doors. And my pallet clock that subtly breaks up the wall space.
I know white, on white, on white isn't for everyone. But we love it! White walls create a "mirror" effect, making small rooms look much bigger.
And it makes rustic wood pop so nicely!
Here's a peek into our master bathroom- I don't think I've ever shared a photo of it (it's basically impossible to photograph because of the small layout) We redid the sinks, put in tile & my husband did some beautiful wainscoting on the walls.
HERE'S the tutorial for this fresh flower sign.
I haven't blogged this storage bench we made, but we basically just created a huge wood box & upholstered a cover for it to make it a little window nook/seating area.
Here's a tip to jump start your daily productivity: always make you bed in the morning. It makes you feel like a superhero, ready to tackle the rest of your day.
But I will admit, I would stay in my bed pretty much all day if I could. Haha!
The chairs on each side of the storage bench were DIY reupholsters from habitat for humanity.
The mirror was a gift, and the nightstands were a DIY project made out of (shocker) pallets.
Next project: Make an arch for above this window.
Well, that's it for now. XO
