Master Bedroom Reveal

Hi there friends! I finally finished our bedroom after partially showing it to you before. So here is the full tour. I have to say I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think I achieved the soft, peaceful feeling I was going for, and it's a good mix of vintage charm and clean white. Just a warning, there are lots of pictures : )

This is the linen closet leading into our room. It's quite literally the only storage we have, other than the little closets in the two bedrooms and the cupboard in the bathroom. So we have to get creative with things. The drawers hold all my craft supplies/home improvement materials.

There she is, our room! I think I shared where most things were from in the first post about it. But let me know if you'd like the source for something. I'm sorry that I don't know the paint color, since it's a rental.

Even Matt said "Wow, that's a pretty picture," about this photo. So it must be good : )

I'm so glad I made the decision to take the sheers all the way across the window. They filter the light so beautifully and give the room so much soft texture.

I don't think I got to share my dresser the last time. I really enjoyed decorating this spot. I had envisioned either a silver or rustic oval mirror here, but when my purse was stolen and we lost our gift cards I couldn't purchase one. I had this mirror (from Target) in another spot, and it works great here! Another lesson in working with what you have!

The candles are from Target, except the tall middle one is the unity candle from our wedding. The silver tray is from the Dollar Tree (yep, really). The gray lace tray is from Anthro. The chiffon flowers and ribbon in the apothecary jar are from our wedding. I wore the white ones in my hair and the gray ones were on our cupcakes, all from Etsy.

The wire urn is from We used it to hold our wishing tree for the wedding. It's probably one of my favorite things in the room. The silver jewelry box was a gift from my aunt for high school graduation, and I've always loved it. My mom got the candlestick for me at an antique mall in Ohio.

My parents gave us this canvas print of one of our engagement pictures for Christmas. It's perfect in the space!

The dried bouquet on my nightstand is my bridal bouquet. The lace-wrapped vase is from our wedding. I never realized how many things in our room were from our wedding til writing this post : )

On Matt's side of the bed, I covered the plain side table with simple cotton fabric. The apothecary jar was my wedding gift to him and holds 75 reasons I love him, enough to read one every week for our first year of marriage and then some : ) The basket is the one I thrifted here. I whitewashed it a few weeks ago, and now it fits in perfectly.

On the other side of the room are my closet and vanity where I get ready every morning. I've always gotten ready in my room but it's especially helpful now since our bathroom just has a tiny pedestal sink.

I stole the oval mirror from my mom. I don't know how long she had it but I do think it was in my nursery as a baby. It was a dark brown and I painted it white, of course.

The desk has definitely seen better days. It's really more of a yellow-y cream in person. It came with my first-ever rental. It's banged up and dented and the drawers don't go in right. But it serves its purpose. The chair is from our kitchen set, which works perfectly because three chairs fit much better in our kitchen than four. You might remember the trashcan from way back here.

Can you tell I have a thing for perfume...and jewelry...

I made the earring holder years ago and it's still so useful.

This little space is one of my favorite parts of the room, I don't even know why. I've had the hooks forever and the wicker hamper is from Bed Bath and Beyond.

Well, there you have it! I love coming in here to relax after a long day. Hope you enjoyed the tour!

    What a beautiful room - you really have a lovely way with decorating. I'm looking forward to looking at more rooms in your gorgeous home.

  16. Where did you get your comforter? I have been looking for a white textured comforter for a decent price and am coming up empty-handed!

    1. Hi Liv, the comforter is from Target. Ours is a true comforter, but they might also have it in a duvet cover. I bought a king size for our queen bed because the online reviews said it was short. It looks just fine in a size up. I believe it's still available in most Target stores.
      Hope that helps!
