House Tour: Master Bedroom (Before Pics)

When I posted yesterday about rearranging the bed in our master bedroom, I was surprised to see that I hadn't yet posted anything under a "master bedroom" label. Haven't I shared our master bedroom before pics, yet? I guess not! So, in the interest of making everyone else feel better about the stylishness of their own bedrooms, here's ours :)

It's a pretty good sized room. Not huge, buy not tiny, either. I'd say it's big enough to be comfortable without really being too large. The best thing about this room from the get-go was the window looking out at the woods. Now that it's nearly twice as large, it's really a great feature.

I know, our bedding is bizarre :) It's really wrong-side up even. We bought this comforter years ago as a temprary solution right after we graduated from a full-sized bed to a queen. We didn't use it for a long while, then the way things worked out after the move, it wound up getting pulled back out and we're using it for the time being. Those pillows were originally sofa pillows - everything is pretty much hodge podge on this bed right now.

I'm hiding nothing here, people. Every corner of bare, neglected space is now out in the open for you all to see. This is pretty much the way it's looked for the past year. Hopefully, hopefully, we'll be moving on to the first layer in here before too long.

These photos were taken at the end of November '09, so - actually - they aren't really 100% before photos. There's a new door, for instance. Painted black :) Still loving the black doors; although, you do have to pay extra careful attention when going to check on a fussing toddler in the middle of the night. Black doors look a lot like open doors in the dark.


Pretty ceiling fan and all :) There you have 'em! Our master bedroom before pics! Since these photos were taken, we've enlarged both windows and we've also hung white curtains - those chages have made a pretty big difference. The natural light literally doubled in this room. Yay for natural light! Next up in here will be the trim and painting... and maybe I'll sneak some new bedding into the mix just for kicks.

You have a great size master bedroom and the new windows are terrific!

What a fabulous idea to make your windows bigger. I love big windows and lots of light. (is there really anyone that doesn't?) And the light colored curtains seem to make it seem even lighter and airier! Great ideas! I had that experience when putting almost-sheer white curtains in our living room. Shazam! - more light! :)
