~Master Makeover Finish~


***********************************************

Most of you know my bedroom makeover mania began when we decided to move the king mattress set from the master bedroom to a guest room and move the guest room queen mattress set to the master bedroom. This switch also involved moving the iron bed from the guest room.

I completed the makeover of the master bedroom today. The only purchase I made was a clearance coverlet and euro shams from Pottery Barn. All other changes to the room were done by moving furniture and accessories from other rooms.


The photo at left shows the Biltmore print we brought home from our Christmas ('07) trip to North Carolina. We had it matted and framed at Michaels. The four prints above the Biltmore print depict iron gates in Charleston, South Carolina. We purchased the prints, when we visited Charleton in 2005.






The deer bookends hold books that belonged to J's Dad. We found the prints above, on our 2005 Charleston trip.

The flowers in the prints were gathered, dried and arranged by artist Pam Randle, then laser printed. The flowers look to be actual pressed flowers, rather than a print.

This shows the view through the bay window, toward the trees, white fence and a neighboring farm.
I decided to use unmatched bedside tables. The basket under the table holds phone equipment. Perhaps I'll purchase different lamps, later on. For now, these are working well.

Another Pam Randle print hangs over the chair. It shows a bird's nest made of dried Hydrangea blossoms. The artist painted Hummingbirds near the nest.

The double doors lead to the master bath. That is a makeover work in progress. More on that, one day soon.

The paint color in this room and the master bath is Laura Ashley Gold #3.

Pat, it all looks wonderful, so serene & peaceful, so your redoing turned out like you wanted, I'm sure! Now I can hardly remember what it looked like before. The rug you moved in there really adds to the cozy factor a lot! Love it!

Looks awesome, Pat! I can't imagine that your beautiful rooms need a makeover after you've just built and decorated your home. But I know the bed swap is what prompted the changes. Love it all! Blessings, Shay

I recently came out of lurking and I am pretty new to blogging, I hope you don't mind my dropping in. Your bedroom looks wonderful, a very peaceful space. The fact that you used items that you aquired during various trips just makes it even more special. Just simply beautiful.
