I'm so excited to share pictures of our little master bedroom renovation we did a few weeks ago. One thing that really matters so me is having a home that is beautiful and a place where I love living. For two years we lived with lovely turquoise carpet in our bedroom and I had finally had enough! We have worked on lots of projects all over the house including our built-in desk and our kitchen renovation, which included replacing the flooring in our kitchen and living room as well as the stairs and Reagan's room. Our bedroom, on the other hand, had been very neglected. Our "before" bedroom wasn't awful, it just wasn't a space I loved. I wanted our bedroom to be a place I really loved where I could rest, so our mission was to create a more relaxing space.

Jordan went out of town on a business trip and I decided I needed a project to do while he was gone. So to really get the ball rolling on this bedroom redo our head board and foot board got a new coat of paint. It was pretty wood before but I wanted something lighter so I opted to paint it white. I also had my brothers come up one day and babysit the girls so I could rip out the carpet (and of course the nasty tack-strips and one million staples from the padding) and molding so when Jordan got home we were ready to start painting the walls.

It's not very often you change the floor, walls, and molding all in one shebang. It was perfect because we didn't have to worry about spilling paint on the floor or taping off the molding because it was torn out while we painted.

After the walls were painted we were ready to replace the flooring. We have gorgeous Brazilian Walnut Laminate Hardwood throughout our house. From there we redid the molding, which looks AMAZING next to the gray walls and then it was time for the fun "Extreme Makeover" part of bringing all of the furniture back into the room.

Here is a nice before picture for your viewing pleasure:



I wanted to paint our bed white, swap out the bedding, get new (matching) nightstands, rip out the carpet, paint the walls, get rid of the mirror closet doors, and build a small closet system for better shoe organization. Leading up to this project we had already purchased a new white dresser in anticipation for this bedroom makeover.

SWAP OUT THE BEDDING
For a while I had been coveting this duvet cover from Anthropologie, but I didn't want to shell out $280, especially for a duvet, not even a comforter or blanket. I loved the mixed patterns and colors as well as the raw seams, so I decided to copy it and make my own.



Jordan helped me make a pattern and my mother-in-law's friend quilted it for me. I think it is the pièce de résistance in our bedroom. I love it!



PAINT THE WALLS
There was something about that old paint color that was too harsh for my eyes. I think it was something about how the lights hit it or how the light came in from the window. I really hated it (the girls rooms are the same color but I don't hate it in their rooms. Their rooms are on the other side of the house and I think they get different light). This gray is so much more soothing and restful.



DECORATE
I found these gray nightstands on KSL (basically Utah's own version of Craigslist) for $50 each. They're bigger than either of our previous nightstands and I love the library drawer pulls. Mostly I loved that I found matching nightstands that were already the perfect color (I REALLY didn't want to paint nightstands) and they were a great price!



^^I had been loving all of the string lights I had been seeing around the blog world/social media but again I couldn't justify buying them just for fun. BUT when I saw some for sale in the cutest store in Amsterdam I justified it as a memorable souvenir and somehow we lugged them all the way back to the States without squashing any. I really love them.



ORGANIZE
^^Our new shoe storage solution. I didn't mind the mirror closet doors but I hated that the middle 40% of the closet was unreachable and therefor complete unusable. There was always a heap of shoes on the floor in a mess closed behind those doors. NO MORE!



Our room is so much calmer and more relaxing. Not only do I need this "sanctuary" after a stressful day of parenting, but especially when it's my time of the month. I really love having a place where I can close the door and rest. I just want to be comfortable and renew in a stress-free space. When I'm on my period I get really bad migraines and the only thing that fixes them is sleeping in a calm, dark space. What matters to me when it's my time of the month is having this place to rest and relax.



I love these new Style N' Store boxes from U by Kotex® and Walmart. They care about what matters to you on your period and know that you're looking for more than just leak protection in a product. Periods are personal things and the ways it affects your life does matter. Walmart can help you feel more confident and more “yourself” with all of your period care solutions. I have been loving U by Kotex® Barely There® Liners. I love their bold colors and designs. They're so comfortable I barely know it's there.

Also don't forget the SNIPP Offer which is live through 9/30/16. When you purchase 2 packs of U by Kotex® products at Walmart and text UbyKotex to 811811 and upload a photo of your receipt, you can receive rewards. Go to UbyKotexrewards.com and register to choose your customized reward!



What matters most to you when you’re on your period? How do you create a relaxing and restful space?

  1. Awesome job! It turned out beautiful! I especially love the flooring.! We have been looking to replace the flooring of a home we will be purchasing in New Mexico and have been going back and forth between hardwood and laminate. It sounds like you have loved yours. Would you mind sharing what brand you bought and what you like dislike about it? Hope you are well!! This is Jen and not Scott, btw. I couldn't get it to log out of his profile so I could comment.lol

    1. We bought ours at RC Willey, it's been great for us. I think the best part was the price, only $0.99/sqft! They are also SUPER easy to install. We have loved how nice they look and how easy they were to install. Everyone who come over is shocked that we did our floors ourselves. They are Inhaus Elements Brazilian Walnut 7mm Laminate Flooring.

  2. Looks great! What color is your paint, and where did you get your base and case? We just bought a new house- and we're painting all the main living space gray to start with- and putting in new base and case. We love the flat, square like you have and i'm starting to shop around to get pricing!

    1. Thanks! I will double check the paint color and update the blog post, and as far as the molding goes, it's just 1x4's painted white! I love them!

  3. You have to share the paint color! That gray is definitely soothing. It's amazing how even with the lights off and just the light coming in it's not very dark but just calm, love it! Your hard work always pays off!

  4. Wow, this is an incredible makeover! We recently did a bathroom and patio makeover, but our bedroom is looking very neglected. This may have inspired me to take a look at what simple changes I could make. Thanks! #client
