Jessi from Real housewife in MN sent this over to me so I could show it off. Check out what she did to their master bedroom.
After a weekend full of shopping trips, painting, measuring and sewing…..I have a much-improved Master Bedroom! Thank you all so much for the great suggestions last week. It was really helpful and made the process a little less overwhelming. We were working with a slim budget, so the changes may seem small to some; but I’m so happy with the results. My girlfriend Nikkee didn’t disappoint (more to come on her in a future post!) Her creative attitude paired with her insane amount of energy is the only reason I was able to complete this in one day. I’ve got some pictures to share, but sorry about all the horrible light in them! Hopefully I can get better ones up soon.
Just for a quick reminder; here is a shot of the before.
4. New Draperies! The sunlight in the above picture makes it really tough to see the beautiful new draperies. Here is a shot from Target’s website, where we found the awesome new additions. They appear more brown in the picture but the paisley is highlighted with a great ice blue pattern. They are beautiful!!! To sew these on my own I budgeted around $75 for lining and other material. (Plus the time and headache!) These were $48 for two panels. Because the window is so massive (12 feet across!) we also hung two white sheers in between the patterned drapes. This really helps with light, but also brightens up the room quite a bit.
Another big win? These were perfect for new shams. I bought one extra curtain, and was able to make two king shams that look great on the bed. (Only one is pictured above because I’m still finishing up the second one; oops!) Here’s another look at the shams (just so I can brag out my skillz a little more)
