My Master Bedroom: As finished as possible.

As I type this, I am going on week 4 of chronic pain. What I thought was a sinus infection is actually a tooth/nerve issue from dental work. I had 2 fillings from the early 80’s replaced in order to give me a chronic migraine and now a potential root canal. Thanks, Mr. DDS. *sshole. The reason I tell you is to caveat the rest of this post in case words like “*sshole” or “quack” appear suddenly and it appears this was written by an insane person.

For those 3 readers that periodically come back to SNM, you know I have been working diligently on the Master bedroom. If I was a good blogger, I would have teased you along with daily snapshots and witty commentary. But now, after maybe 1 tease last summer, I give you: MY BEDROOM.

Full on:

Seating area where I mostly do domestic work like fold laundry:

The bed with my DIY-headboard:

Please don’t mention the wrinkles.

Marbled papered prints I bought from here immediately upon seeing them:

Love print by Made By Girl:

Mid Century (free hand-me-down) dresser from the husband’s parents:

Lovely antique (?) chest thrifted from a pile of cast-off dorm room furniture:

fun letters:

I’d still like to add some trim to the curtains, add a little more art, and get new nightstands. But for now, this:

is a helluva lot better than this:

  23. Wow – love everything about this – the mid century dresser mixed with the ghost chair! I love when old and new are combined and you did such a fab job of it. Now when you have tooth pain, you can escape to this fabulous retreat! So glad you joined our Impossibilities Challenge. Of course I am now following you (love a gal that throws in random expletives)!

  24. What a transformation! I love the “neutral on neutral” look – it’s so calming – especially with the white curtains!

  25. Helluva lot better is an understatement! This is fantastic! Your headboard is great!

  26. Michaela says:

  27. Okay… I need you and Rita over here stat! Love your room design, and love Rita’s photos of it. I just posted my master bedroom, and now I want to go delete it! Yours is absolutely fabulous!! Great job :)

  28. So many great details! What a relaxing space. I LOVE that marbled wall art too. And your letters, the map covered W, just awesome!!

    Thanks so much for linking up to the challenge!

  29. This looks amazing. I love your headboard, the seating area and the mix of styles in your dressers! I have an antique dresser in my bedroom and I’ve been considering adding a second one to the other side of the room, maybe I’ll head for mid-century style to change things up a bit. Love your style! :)

    It looks like something out of a magazine. I. am. in. love. Great job! I hope you feel better. I hate dentists. They charge way to much and you ALWAYS have to go back and have whatever they do redone.

  32. Lovely!!! Is that settee from West Elm? I took a picture of one like it. Nice job!!!

        His example: Have YOU ever asked your doctor what her GPA was? I sure haven’t.————-What do they call the lowest-graded guy in the entire graduating class at med school… the one who just barely squeaked through the minimum scores? “Doctor”.

      • Andrejus,I was about to bang my head and throw my device, but last try saved me :)phew!!!!Since your ADFBasicAuthApp was in JSF 2.0, i had migrated to downgrade to JSF 1.2 and deployed in weblogic, during that process the below line got missed from jps-config.xml file. I believe this is MY MISTAKE , as migration does not delete it.So now i am able to authenticate any user defined in weblogic realm.I sincerely appreciate you for constantly replying to my queries.Regards,Ravi

    Where did you get all the throw pillows?

    • SN Martha says:

      Hi Caroline! I think the one on the bed is from Target. The pink one on the couch is from Urban Outfitters. The White/Silver&Gold ones on the ghost chairs are from West Elm. And finally, the chevron one on the couch is from PillowFlight PDX on Etsy
