Master Bedroom


Master Bedroom (Update): Adding Curtains

Just wanted to make a little update to the Master Bedroom.  Since the last post, I added the curtains behind the bed.

It’s still not any closer to being done,

but then again….. is a house ever really done?

The phrase I just used made Z’s stomach start to hurt when I shared it with him……  Oh well.

Here is a pic of the room now with curtains.


I cannot believe what curtains can do for a room.

Honestly, they are the icing on the cake if you really want to soften up a room.

See for yourself.  Here is the pic of the bedroom in the earlier post WITHOUT curtains.


Just adding the curtains has really done a lot for the space.

Here it is now below WITH…..


I bought the curtains from a store called Tuesday Morning about 5 years ago and they are still just as nice as the day I bought them.

I paid a little more for them, but they were worth every penny.

If you have one in your town, you should definitely check it out.

Tuesday Morning is basically a smaller version of Homegoods.  You can get namebrand things there for much cheaper than you would pay in other stores.

I love those curtains because in certain light, they look light green…. and in other light, they look light blue.

I also bought a few picture frames while I was at “my second home” the other day.  ( Homegoods )


They don’t have anyone in them yet.  They are just sitting pretty on my dresser right now.

I paid only $6.99 for each of them.


Hopefully I’ll get around  to it soon….

In case you missed the original post about the Master Bedroom, you can check it out here.

Until next time….

Master Bedroom

I have been wanting to do a post for a while about my Master Bedroom.

It took a little while longer than I wanted to complete it and I really shouldn’t even call it complete yet.

I still need to get my curtains up, but I just couldn’t wait any longer.

The reason for this is because I went totally different than I normally would with the paint color.


I wanted something “Sultry” for the Master.

Z told me that if I said that word one more time, he was going to Puke!

Hey!  Can’t a girl dream?

It’s always nice to know his Flame still burns  for me????…..

Anyway, I know it’s not complete yet.

I haven’t put anything on the walls besides the TV.  (Had to have the TV!)

The light coming through the windows is actually lightening up the color in the picture above.

It’s actually darker than the picture really shows.


We painted the wall, crown, and ceiling all different colors.

A lot of times, people forget about “the fifth wall”. (That is what they call the ceiling)

What most do not realize is how much it can do for a room when you choose to paint the ceiling.

It can either cozy up really high ceilings or it can just make such a bold statement.

You can either use a flat paint which will cover easier, or you can go with an Eggshell.

Eggshell will reflect the light really well on a sunny day, but it is harder to work with and will show any flaws you have in the ceiling.

For a DIYer, it’s best to go with flat.


I thought it best to give the man of the house the masculine dresser and just to make sure he knows which one is his,

I marked it with his initial.

You can never  be too careful about these things.


Ahhhhh!  Refreshing white is mine.

I love that dresser!


One always needs a fan humming at night to block out the snores of their mate and pooch!


I loooooove these pillows I picked up at Homegoods.


This is my beloved Chandelier.  I drooled over this one for months before I actually pulled the trigger on it.

It is considered a “Champagne Bronze” and has glass pearls cascading down it, which I bought at  The Home Depot.

I’m really excited because I just picked up the matching flush mount and the mini versions of it

for my Master Bath and Closet.  ( I’ll show in a later post)


Here is another angle of it in the mirror’s reflection.  I bought the mirror at Homegoods also a little while ago for only $29.


Here is another angle of the wall colors.  It gives a little more accurate idea of the shade.


I will ALWAYS  display my boots because I wuv  them so much .


This is the view from the Master Bath, which should really be called “The Community Bath” instead.

I mean, let’s be honest here…..

Not until my children move out, will it ever truely be a Master Bath for just us.

Here is a link to the Wall Colors so you can check them out for your self:

*Keep in mind, that not all colors look the same online as they would on a wall.*

Wall – Wolf Gray by Benjamin Moore

Ceiling – Metropolitan by Benjamin Moore

Crown – Bright White  (High Gloss)  *Ask your paint salesman for a true Bright White  (Most paint stores have a tendency to “gray” their whites)

*We used an Eggshell Paint which Z prefers to use for interiors.

If you have any questions regarding which paint to purchase for you next home project, email me and I will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

I’ll even ask “the expert”.  ( Z )

Until Next Time…..
