The Master Bedroom Revisited: Mirror Found!

I’m bringing it waaaaay back today with a follow-up to a forgotten room makeover project posted here on the blog a long time ago.

With the craziness surrounding the full kitchen remodel (DIY style) and the new nursery the bedroom redesign was sort of pushed aside. And by sort of, I mean completely put on hold and forgotten about for a good three months.

Here’s a reminder of the before-we-moved-in status:

There’s no longer carpeting in the room (why, why, why red?), nor are there bars on the windows and we painted the walls my favorite neutral tan. Then after agreeing on an espresso-colored bed and dresser off of Craigslist, Kev and I lived in a semi-complete room for a good bit of time. It never bothered me as we didn’t put the room on display when guests came over, just quietly closed the door and let our clothes remain stacked on the hamper and our bed sometimes unmade.

A few months ago I decided it was time to tackle the space and I used these rooms to build this inspiration board:

Bedroom Inspiration Board, Blue, Sunburst, Starburst Mirror, Espresso, Dark Wood, Decor, Decoration, Inspiration Board, White Curtains, fabric headboard

And so began the hunt for some of the key pieces/room additions.

Here’s a post on the DIY fabric headboard I made for the space and here’s the post on my hunt for a rug for the room (scored a great one at Try as I might, I still couldn’t find that perfect mirror that I had envisioned for the space… I even wrote a post on my favorite contenders here.

And then the skies opened (cue the angels singing) and the perfect mirror appeared during one of my Michaels Craft Store visits. Best part of the whole deal? I picked it up for less than $50 with a 40% off coupon.

Sunburst, Starburst Mirror, Before and After, Bedroom, Blue Master, Gold, Silver

I think she’s perty. And it’s a perfect size for this corner wall space between windows (more on tackling those curtains to come).

Maybe it’s my nesting hormones or maybe I’m just tired of a dull space – but master bedroom, you’re finally getting the love you deserve!
