Master Bedroom Makeover


Our master bedroom had been neglected for way too long.  (Take a look at that first picture.)  I wanted to turn part of the room into a little office space.  I got super motivated and gave the room a funky accent wall, moved the desk in...and then all the desk/office junk just sat there for months.  (Take a look at the second picture.)  I finally got myself together, and bought some drawer organizers (love those), and took a shelf/bookcase thing from my parent's house that my mom had set aside to give away.  I still need to get a more attractive/cozier desk chair...but for now, this one will do.

I'm enjoying my new little blogging space. 


And let's get real.  The second I step foot in my house, the sweatpants and the t-shirt gets thrown on.  Ain't nobody got time to be looking all cute at home. :-)

Have you re vamped a room lately?
Are you as excited for Christmas as I am?  Go here to enter my Christmas giveaway.

Nice! I wish we had room for an "office" space in our apartment. For my husband, he just spreads out all his school stuff on the dining room table (drives me crazy!)

The very first thing I do when I get home is throw on those comfy clothes too! :)

Robin said...

I like it! I probably would have painted the entire room in that blue color, it's very pretty.

I love your work space & literally laughed out loud at your last line, definitely no time for that!!! I recently revamped our guest room. I have the before pictures but need to get around to making the after for the reveal!

That's so cute! I have a small desk in my room that's my "blogging space" but it's not nearly as cute as yours!

I do the same thing! When I am home, I wear my comfy pants and my hoodie. Much more practical!

RoselyC said...

You did a great job. I've been wanting to create my own office(blogging)space for a while. But with a move coming up I guess I will have to wait. Love the color you used on the wall.

Christine D. | The Plumed Nest said...

looks fabulous! my room is probably the size of your closet so i have to be a little jealous of being able to combine two spaces into one! (i live in a 1930's home so it has other great elements, large bedrooms are just not one of them!). i am constantly revamping my living space because it's where we are ALL the time, playing, working, blogging, tv watching . . .

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

HAHAHA! Your expression and what you wrote at the end about the sweatpants definitely shows your sentiment. HAHAHAHA You created a super fun space to blog. Congrats on the makeover.

It's amazing what a little pop of color can do to brighten a room. I bet you have warm fuzzy feelings every time you look that way now, right?

My room is one of the last ones we have yet to redo since moving in 4 years ago. I am feeling a little envious of you right now lol. *sigh*, maybe next year :)

Denise Pacurar said...

It looks lovely!! I really like the bright color! So fun and happy!!!! You did an awesome job!

Ashley, I love it!! That wall color is super fab! We just finished revamping our home office and it's my new favorite room! Now it's time for the mud room and our bedroom. This home design stuff is not my cup of tea, but it's growing on me! :)

Krista said...

I desperately need to re-vamp my workspace but it'll have to wait. No extra dough with Christmas a comin' :) I love your transformation! Isn't it great when everything has a place to be! I feel so much better when things are organized but you would NEVER know it to walk in my house ;)

Katie said...

anna lizbeth said...

Amy Shaughnessy said...

No I have not. I need to! Our master bedroom is hideous! Oh, airborne is a supplement that is supposed to boost your immune system. They used to only make them in tablets that dissolved in water and you had to drink it. NASTY. But now they make tablets that you can chew. I take 1-3 a day.

It's crazy how paint can make all the difference! Love the color choice! And it's true, the second I take a step inside I change right into my sweats. Sometimes putting effort into making your home presentable can be really hard.

Such a great, fun color! I just painted my bedroom yesterday! I love how paint makes a big difference.

Sara Louise said...

The accent wall is great! Love the color!
And yeah, home is all about comfy. I don't know the last time I hung out at home in 'regular' clothes :)

Kelley Gilster said...

oh my gosh, that color is amazing!! I would be so happy all day just looking at it

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

I love your little blogging space, the blue is just perfect as is the art above your desk. I revamp our room by playing with colors. I have white sheets so I might get bright pillowcases or flowers. Items on the bedside table. Nothing major like yours (which looks like it would have been so much fun to do!)

tiny dancer said...

Yay! What a fantastic revamp :) You did a great job - that wall is so much fun, what a rewarding DIY. I just moved into a new place and had so much fun decorating.

Tara said...

Totally love this! A good work space makes for productive work ;)

Tyne Swedish said...

That wall color is to die for doll and you are so right we all throw on sweats once we get in the house! I also wanted to thank you for your sweet comments my guest post on Vanisha's blog. I really hope I am setting a good example for my nephews and niece. It does take a lot of work but it seems so worth it.

That looks fantastic! Sometimes I feel bad for my husband because the second I walk in the door the sweatpants go on and that's how he sees me 80% Of the time, oh well LOL!

Tiffany said...

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

Love the blue you chose, so fun! And let's be honest, who doesn't immediately put in sweats as soon as they enter the house? :)
