Good morning! I hope you had a terrific weekend. I’m moving a little bit slow today, the weekend flew by around here. I finally finished the curtain wall in the bedroom and spent part of my day yesterday taking photos of the finished master bedroom to share with you today.
The curtain wall behind the bed makes the room so cozy. I feel like I am sleeping in a chic boutique hotel every night. I hope to update the pillows soon, but overall I really love how it turned out!
When I first moved in, the bedroom was painted a reddish brown semi-gloss. It was not ideal and I knew right away the wall color would have to go, below is the room before I moved in…
Master Bedroom Before
I quickly arranged my furniture into the room to get settled. I set-up my DIY upholstered headboard in front of the window that looks onto the covered front porch. The view out the front porch window is not spectacular so I decided to placed the bed on that wall and curtain it to make it cozy and to add a strong focal point to the space. This photo was taken soon after I moved in…
Soon after I moved in, I stumbled upon what is now my new headboard! I found it on clearance at TJ Maxx.
Immediately, I knew it was just what I needed to set the stage for the new room design. It was perfect… a soft neutral upholstered headboard with nailhead trim. A definite upgrade from the headboard above which I DIYed before I started blogging.
The wall color I chose compliments the natural woodwork. It is a soft warm, gray which tones down the harsh orange undertones. The color is Valspar Frappe.
The curtain wall was built using drop cloths from Lowe’s. The oatmeal color and drop cloth texture works well with the soft neutral of the headboard and compliments the gray wall color, providing just enough contrast to add interest to the space. I used drapery rings to hang the drop cloths. This DIY project was very simple, but makes a huge impact. I think the longest part of the process was steaming the drop cloths after they were hung :).
Overall, I am very pleased with how it turned out. Of course, it is not complete, but I think for now I will start working on another room…maybe the dining room. I’m in the planning process for the next project.
