Master Bedroom Makeover

Last week, I put my decorating obsession to good use and gave my parents’ master bedroom a complete makeover. My mom’s initial complaint about her bedroom was the paint color of the walls and the ceiling. The drab yellow definitely had to go. My main concern was its wasted space; the large room felt empty despite the king-size bed and the giant dresser.

We quickly got to work. I ordered all the new furniture and accessories online. My mom and I painted the walls and ceiling. Scott channeled Chico again and installed the lighting fixture. The result? Pretty damn good! The room went through a complete transformation.


Notice the yucky yellow paint and un-coziness.

  2. Wow, excellent job! You have a good eye for color and furniture arrangement. You should consider doing interior design on the side (another branch in your creative empire, hehe).

    Thank you! The accent wall is Behr Antique Tin and the lighter walls are Behr Cathedral Grey.

  5. What a difference!
    Looks stunning, I love that console table :D


  6. Thanks, Elle! The console table (from Target) looks even better in person. I was so pleasantly surprised by it! A little tricky to put together though…it felt like I was going to break a piece of glass. ;)
