Project Master bedroom

Before...


In the 11+ years that Kevin and I have been married, we've never really decorated our master bedroom. We've had 7 different bedrooms, 5 different comforters (we have 3 kids, a dog, and I used to buy cheap bedding) In 2 of our bedrooms, we've painted the walls, but never hung any pictures or anything. It's been 22 months since we moved to our current home. Last year, I started a savings account earmarked "Master bedroom" and it has been growing, slowly. I've shopped off and on, but never bought anything b/c I didn't really know when we'd tackle this project.
Kevin made the mistake of saying we should go ahead and paint the bedroom over Christmas break. I told him that I didn't know if I wanted to paint b/c I didn't have the bedding and wanted to make sure it matched. To this, he responded by telling me to go shopping. AHHHHH-music to my ears. Or so I thought. I made probably 20 different trips to various places (Kohl's, Dillards, Penneys, Hobby Lobby, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond) over Christmas break. It wasn't as fun as I thought it would be. But I LOVE our new bedroom

What's next? Nothing....until Kevin is finished with his dissertation. Then, it's painting the basement(not much money, just a lot of time) and remodeling the master bath!

I don't think the pictures do it justice. It really does look better in real life. You did a great job! When are you coming to redecorate my room?

On that ceiling fan--make sure you get one with a remote control. We love ours. Can set the lights to go off after a while, as well as the fan if needed. Can also turn the lights on in the middle of the night when the phone rings--oh yeah, yours probably doesn't ring in the middle of the night.
