Master Bedroom Makeover - Before Pictures

The sun was shining nice and bright this morning so I thought it was the perfect time to take some before pictures for my next room redo project, the master bedroom.

I decided that this room needed to be the next up for a redo because I feel like your bedroom should be a peaceful, restful, and pretty space that you like to be in... not one that you want to leave asap!

I've got ideas brewing as we speak and I've already ordered curtains! So, I'm going to show you the before shots so you can see what I'm working with, but beware, there are not any pretty pictures here :o(

before pictures of my master bedroom


This is looking into the room from the hallway. There were mini-blinds in this room when I bought the house and I left them closed in this shot so you can see how hideous they are! I hate mini blinds and these are ugly blue and not in very good shape at all.


I don't like this furniture arrangement at all so I'll definitely be moving it around. You can see there are several pieces of lime green furniture in here and I've decided to combine that color with dark turquoise and grey for my color scheme.


You can see that it's kind of a dumping ground with the Rubbermaid container on the floor, the window propped up in front of the fireplace, and there's another box of stuff nearby and some clothes that I haven't found a spot for yet at the foot of the bed.


I'm not happy with how my bed looks either.


I'd like something like this...

I bought a headboard from a friend. I don't have a picture of it but it looks like something that belongs in a brothel right now! It's red velvet and tufted. I'm going to paint it the dark turquoise color that I choose for the room.

 This is looking back toward the hallway and there's that pile of clothes with no home :o)


The dresser just has stuff sitting on it... no rhyme or reason to it at the moment.


I've had this pretty lady for quite some time, I think she may get a makeover as well.


This is the closet... with the random box of unpacked stuff sitting in front of it :o/ There are no closet doors on any of the closets in the bedrooms so I'll need to come up with a solution for that.


To the left of the closet is the entrance into the half bath.


You can see the half bath goes on through to the laundry room.


And I hate this stupid boob light. Not sure what will take it's place but something cute!



I ordered these curtains from World Market, they are just plain white cotton voile. I might embellish them a little bit, not sure yet. I'm planning on putting up roller blinds/shades and covering them with fabric too.


I'm also taking this rug out. I straighten it out every.single.day. and this is what it does when you take one step onto it. I think I need to find a rug pad that is made for rugs on carpet.


So, that's what's next! I'm excited to get started!
