Welcome to Part 4 of our master bedroom makeover! This is an area that is often last on the list when it comes to updates, but not anymore my friends! So far we have DIY’ed a shiplap feature wall, made new lighting and now it’s time for my favorite part – painting and decorating! Check out how I finished out the makeover including the budget breakdown. You’ll be surprised how little I spent to change the whole look of this room!
This makeover has been a process over a few weeks due to the shiplap taking a bit longer than we expected. And it was a large area to paint. But, it’s such a change and I’m happy we took the time for it.
Master Bedroom Makeover
My original plans (see them here) included as much paint as I could afford for our room. We have a very large master bedroom and paint isn’t cheap! I waited until Sherwin Williams was having a sale and purchased three gallons of their Super Paint in flat finish. We use Panda White because that’s the color of all the trim and doors in our house. I would prefer a brighter white, but again, this is a budget makeover. Can’t go changing everything at once. I got three gallons for $114.42 and supplies (roller covers, paint tray liners..) for about $30. Now, this is a little more than I was planning originally, but I lucked up and sold a piece of furniture that I wasn’t planning on keeping for $100. So boom! We are down to $44.42 for paint.
However, once I started painting, I realized that A. I’m not the world’s best wall painter and B. One coat was all I could manage in a few days. I have enough paint left to go back and do the second coat, but I just couldn’t pick up that roller one more time! The good thing is, it made a big difference even though the budget didn’t allow for the ceiling to be painted yet.
I kept the large pieces of furniture. I sold one that just didn’t quite fit in anymore. I’m planning to paint the large armoire and the night stands, but for now they are fine. I scored a huge trunk at an estate sale for $40 and it now lives at the foot of the bed. It has some dings and scuffs and one of the leather handles broke, but that’s ok – adds to the vintage charm!
I’m planning to use it for storing all my extra frames and pictures. I have these stuffed in random drawers throughout the house and I think it’ll be good to have them all in one area now.
And I found a beautiful antique table from a neighbor for my little sitting area. I sold the previous one there for $15 so this was a score for the budget.
I’ve got a new to me buffet that no one else wanted and some DIY farmhouse style decor from a few yardsale finds. I added my copper planters from the Target Dollar Spot and some faux greenery. And there’s brown dog himself peering out the window!
The other main addition to the room is a gorgeous piece of art from a sweet friend. Sadly, she is moving and had to unload a few things before her move. This is one that I was interested in months ago but just didn’t have the money at the time. She gave me a major friend discount on this one and she’s letting me pay her later after I can sell some more furniture! (Thanks Kelly!)
There are a few things that didn’t get done but overall I am excited about how it turned out. The shiplap and light fixtures made a dramatic impact and didn’t cost me a lot of money. You can check out the shiplap here and the light fixtures here.
