Show Us Where You Live: Master Bedroom Edition

If you read my blog regularly, you have already seen this post. We are touring Master Bedrooms for Show Us Where You Live at Kelly's Korner, so I'm just re-posting this tour I did recently of my Master Bedroom. Nothing has changed since I originally posted it, except it now has some baby gear in it! :)

Here are a few BEFORE pictures: And this was after we had moved in but were waiting to have our carpet replaced. We literally slept with our mattress on the floor of the sitting area. Those first few week after moving = no fun!! (It didn't help that I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy with Jude and hormonal - haha.)
Even though it felt like things would never come together, they eventually did. We got new carpet. We painted the walls. We hung our chandelier. We moved our furniture into the room. And here is the AFTER: If you remember what our old bedroom looked like, you'll notice that we got a different bedspread. We're using the old one in the guest bedroom. Pretty much everything else in the room we already had. The drapes were in the kitchen of our old house. I've had this bench for YEARS, but it was a gold color that didn't work in our house. David spray painted it, I recovered the cushion, and we had a brand new bench!
I love the sitting area! I have always wanted a sitting room in my bedroom, and this is one of my favorite parts of our house. We already had everything that we used in this room (except the pillows that my grandmother made) and it came together just the way I hoped it would. The rug was in our living room in our old house, and was in the office of our new house for a while after we moved. I decided that it would pull all the colors in our bedroom together perfectly, so we moved it. I love it in here! (This area is also serving as Jude's bedroom for now until I'm ready to move him upstairs to the nursery.)The view from the sitting area into the rest of the room. Sorry about that weird reflection on the wall. So, there it is! It's not perfect, and it probably never will be. Some of the walls still feel a bit bare to me, so I'll probably hang a few more things before it's all said and done. We love the way it turned out though, and it's a very restful room to be in.

Thanks for stopping by and touring our Master Bedroom! :)
