An American Dream

Master Bedroom

The Master Bedroom.

I never thought I would ever have a room that I could paint my own designs on the walls. This has been one of the best parts of owning a home. Being able to do as you please. Woo Hoo!  This room, as with the other is to be relaxing, but not boring. There were many compromises made here to be both for my husband and I. Like the wall color. I wanted a soft blue, he was more for green. So now the blue in the room is done in accents. See, everyone wins. Anyhow, here is the room expenses breakdown. Note items have been collected over time, over 6 years.

The hanging bamboo painting is made of 4 pack of flat canvases (10$ at walmart) 1 can of brown spray paint. Masking paint to tape off border and for the branches. And an old curtain tie, cut and glued to connect the canvas like a chain.

Old dresser I refinished a few years ago is no longer in my bedroom.

Looking into the bedroom from the master bath

   And what inspired this room? An amazing dining room by David Bromstad. He had made wood cutouts of Ginkgo leaves (I am obsessed with ginkgo leaves by the way)  I could not make the cut outs, but I could free hand them on my walls with leftover trim and door paint. White in a semi gloss.

  There you have it. My master bedroom as it stands today.

    I’m loving the art above the bed. Would you share what they are (prints, paintings, other, etc.) and where you bought them? Awesome room!

    • They are leftover fabric from when I re upholstered my dining room chairs 😉
