One of my main goals for 2015 was to redo our master bedroom. Well, as 2015 came to a close, I can finally say that it has been done!
Being the frugal shopper that I’ve become, I didn’t want to spend a fortune, but still wanted to have a luxurious feeling, modern and comfortable space to escape to.
Our previous master bedroom was very dark and plain. The colors were a little childish for a master bedroom and I was ready to grow out of them.
I’ve always been attracted to bright colors so I originally tried to keep the blues as an accent color, but eventually I realized what I really wanted was a more neutral palette.
And I am so happy with the space! I love retreating to my new master bedroom. Here’s where we ended up:
We weren’t updating any of the furniture, so I love that everything we added stayed neutral and added brightness to the space instead of being so brown like it was before.
I of course scoured Pinterest for inspiration and fell in love with some pretty pricy items. But throughout my shopping journey, I’ve found some really great stores that I fell in love with that offer the same style of decor but way cheaper. Kirkland’s starting becoming one of my go to stores.
Here’s a breakdown of everything we purchased:
Bedding: Walmart – $39.96
Gold Damask Pillows: Kirkland’s – $15.99 each – on sale (gold no longer available, but there are several other colors)
Gold Line Pillows: Target – $17.99 each – on sale
Dream Pillow: Kirkland’s – $15.99 – on sale
Lamps: Kirkland’s – $34.99 each
Decorative Mirrors: Kirkland’s – $10.99 each – on sale (As of writing this post, these were on sale for $7.47)
Throw: Kohl’s (Jennifer Lopez) – $39.99 – on sale
Mirror Above Dresser: HomeGoods – $79.99
Picture Frames: HomeGoods – $6.99-7.99 each
Paint: We definitely could have saved more money here if we did this ourselves, but we did decide to splurge and hire a contractor to paint our bedroom and bathroom just because of the hassle of painting and moving all the furniture. It cost $550, and we felt that it was well worth it!
I’m so happy we were able to complete my homeowner resolution for 2015, even though it took the whole year to do so! Ha!
Now, on to the next project!
