Master Bedroom Makeover

I’ve been talking about painting rooms in the house for a few weeks now. I got sidelined for a little bit with my back being hurt, but this past week I finished up all of the little touches in the master suite. And today, I’m showing you our transformed master bedroom! A new paint job, new bedding, new switch plates, and new gallery walls, and I’m already loving the ‘new’ room. I’d still like to get some curtains – something light and breezy, semi-transparent – but that will come later. I went with all neutral, because we had a mix of browns and blacks already with furniture and some of the picture frames. This paint color is called ‘Rustic Taupe’ and it’s pretty much the perfect shade of gray. And a lot of those pieces in the gallery walls are simply fabric-covered shoe box lids – such simple and cheap decor. Take a look!

What do you think? Have you ever tackled a room makeover where the room is already full of stuff?

Thoughts on Suburbia

I don’t know if you know this, dear readers, but I live in suburbia. To be specific, a 2-story house in a neighborhood full of similar houses in the Austin-suburb of Round Rock (technically a separate city, but for all intents and purposes the greater city’s suburb). I used to live down in Austin proper, renting an apartment, until Ian showed up on the scene back in 2009. At the time we started dating, he already owned the house we both now live in with our puppy. And it’s a great house. My office has its own separate room, which […]
