Master Bedroom

When the Hitchcock's remodeled, they joined part of the front porch and the office/study together to create a master bedroom and bath. Pretty much every surface was stained wood... Wood ceiling, floors, walls... It felt a bit like living inside a big toy chest.

I always wanted a girlie-girl room, and this is the only room that I could really use lighter (not kid-proof) colors in... Steven does not seem to mind sleeping in a pretty pink room. In fact, it is rather cozy.

After the walls were scuffed up with the sander, a layer of Kilz primer was sprayed on. The trim and ceiling were sprayed "Milk Sugar" by Laura Ashley / Valspar. Next, a few coats of "Bella Pink" by Behr. I painted my oak bed and dresser "Chocolate Souffle" by Ralph Lauren. The nightstands were painted "Creme Brule" by Ralph Lauren.

We added a dresser for the TV sit on. The curtains are vintage sheers that I found in an upstairs closet. I found a pink crackle glass pull for the closet light as well. The doorknob for the bathroom door is vintage lavender-colored glass from a door we removed upstairs.

I found an old chair at a thrift shop and painted it "Navy I" by Laura Ashley / Valspar. I recovered the seat in Amy Butler pink fabric. We found an antique dresser at a thrift store which I painted "Sweet Woodruff" by Laura Ashley / Valspar. Pink glass knobs and pink paper drawer liners were added. I made a runner from the same fabric as the chair. Steven took the cheap closet doors down and I made curtains from a different Amy Butler pink fabric.

The brown dresser is being sold, along with the bed. I plan on replacing the bed with a gorgeous flat black iron bed. The nightstands, if not replaced altogether, will be repainted the same cream as the dresser.

I am on the look-out for many rugs that I plan on layering around the room. Perhaps flokart, cheetah and pale pinks.... Yummy...
More pictures to come!!!!

Ooo, love the idea of the black iron and cream accents against pale pink. Makes me think parisian, no? Anyway - I can't wait to see it when it's all together and fabulous - I'm sure it will be inspirational!
