Rustic Chic Budget Friendly Master Makeover

Rustic Chic Budget Friendly Master Makeover

  Hi friends! I am so excited to FINALLY be sharing with you my Rustic Chic Budget Friendly Master Bedroom Makeover! The space is being featured in this months-Feb BHG issue!! If you haven’t seen it yet but sure to be on the look out, it should hit stores this week. Can I tell you, I was like a little kid all last week, running to the mailbox each time filled with such excitement & anticipation. Definitely the best day professionally for me to open up those pages & see my home. I will never forget the feeling, ever!

Everyone always asks where do I begin with a room. Often the answer is different for each space. When we moved in 4 years ago{exactly} I picked all my paint & painted each room first before really knowing design wise where I would go but I knew my style & the colors I loved.  The wall color is Valspar- Beach. It reminded me of tones I would see at dusk along the beach, perfect name, don’t ya think?

CF Master Bedroom Reveal Rustic Chic For 3 years the room was just painted with a headboard that didn’t match & a duvet that had seen better days. And tons of toys in & out of the room. We tackled the other common areas first & waited until we had the money to tackle this room.

This is the before color, which is nice but I wanted more of a neutral tone.

And this was the headboard & wall before the transformation. My original headboard was in a red & gold chenille from Calico Corners, so as a temporary solution I decided to take a sheet I liked & do a quick slipcover. That “temporary” situation lasted 2 years, lol:). It is amazing when you have extra money you can always find other things to spend it on, hence the long wait.

And the after….

DIY Herringbone Wall & Valspar-Beach

These side tables I found in my basement. I loved the x design and knew I would eventually use them. They were bought at Target on clearance for a ridiculously low price. I added a base to the bottom for storage and added casters for height. The paint color is Benjamin Moore-Stormy Sky. The baskets I taped off & spray painted to give a color blocked look.

The herringbone wall treatment was easy. I love pattern but despise removing wallpaper {once you have taken it down more than a few times yourself you seek out other options:)}. I measured the wall, found the middle and began drawing my lines. After which I taped it off & used a leftover white for the stripe detail. I love how it turned out & when I get tired of it I can just lightly sand & paint over it.

The headboard fabric is discontinued. I found it at a local fabric store, I kept coming back to it. A {discontinued}persimmon floral was not what I had in mind for this room but I can’t imagine any other fabric now. It is absolutely perfect & a chance worth taking, my small risk paid off, yay!

City Farmhouse DIY Headboard I wanted the room to feel peaceful & bright, so I chose crisp white bed linens.

The drapery rods are made by just simply stringing jute through eye hooks & securing them to large cleats. My RH Outlet linen panels were a steal at $20 per panel.

Layering textures makes the room feel warm & cozy. City Farmhouse Rustic Chic Budget Friendly Bedroom Reveal

This room gets an insane amount of natural light. It is my favorite room in my house & a place I treasure. The best time is in the morning on the weekends when my boys come in to snuggle with us{because my comforter is sooo warm}. When I open the shades & see the sun come up over the bay, honestly there is nothing better.

  1. Ooh, I likey! I was eyeing the same bench over at TJ Maxx. I was unsure about it because of the gray (I want it in a sand-colored fabric), but seeing it in your space is making me reconsider…

  2. Read BH&G yesterday at the dentist’s office. Your house looks even more beautiful!
    Congrats. again!

  3. I absolutely love your wall! Is there a tutorial? I’d like to do this to my bedroom wall ASAP, leaving the background color as is. Any easy way to do the white stripes? I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

  4. I loved your feature in BHG. Can you tell me where the roman shades are from? I’m having such a hard time finding an affordable option. Thanks!!

  5. Oh i’m sorry, i meant the thin white stripes. Are they 3/8 ” or 1/2″ or 1″. They just seem a lot thinner than 9″

  6. IDo you have a name brand on the tuffed grey bench from home goods? I’m in love!
    Thanks Stephanie

    1. That should work Laurin, try a small area and see. Mine are 5/8″ but they are painted. Good Luck!!

  7. Jen, this is one of the most beautiful and coziest rooms I have ever seen. I really like the combination of neutral palette with pops of warm read as well as warm texture of the wooden details. You did an amaaaazing job 🙂

  8. It’s always nice to bring a little bit of nature indoors, don’t you think? I’m definitely not talking bugs and critters, but I am talking textiles and textures. Definitely it’s a comfortable, bright and splendid bedroom. I don’t want to say not only thanks but also expect more gorgeous post from JEN.
