Calm and Tranquil Master Bedroom Makeover on a budget

We all need a place to retreat at the end 
of a busy day!
I'm going to share my

Calm and Tranquil Master 
Bedroom Makeover

that was done on a budget

It fills me with such joy having a haven
to rest and relax!

Before the makeover,
this room was the opposite of relaxing
it was loud and messy!

Now it is a calm and tranquil
room to catch my breath
after a long day of being a mom!

The entire room is painted Ashwood by Behr.

There is a small hall at the entrance to our bedroom.  
I stenciled the wall to look like wallpaper.
The light color is Chocolate Froth by Behr.
I made the burlap wreath (similar to this one) 
along with a collection of tarnished silver trays.

The bed is covered with a cream quilt set (similar here)
and various pillows that I have sewn from
napkins and even an old sweater.
I added mine and my husbands initals
in a monogram above the headboard.  (similar here)

I found perfect wooden bedside tables
at a store locally (similar here).  
I styled the tables with silver lamps and white shades (similar here),
and trays that I painted yellow (similar here).

For the art above the bedside table,
I used canvas stretcher frames that I painted
and distressed and stapled fabric to the back.
frame fabric.  

For one of the walls in the bedroom
I used thrift store white plates.
I used these plate holders to
hang them on the wall.

Above our chest of drawers
that was purchased at a local furniture store,
I used free printables (similar here)
in spray painted thrift store frames.

On top of the chest is a thrift store tray
that holders a vintage enamelware pitcher
with florals from the craft store,
and mercury glass candle holders (similar here)

I painted the window wall the same treatment 
as the entrance hall.
I used gray grommet curtains (similar here).
The mini couch is from IKEA.

On the large wall we put our entertainment
center that matched our chest of drawers.
Above the EC I used paper mache boxes and an
old suitcase from the flea market. 
To the left side I did a photo collage of my husband
and me.
To the right side photo ledge shelves I built
with photos of my babies! 

I am so happy with the way 
my Master Bedroom Makeover turned out.
And the best part is that it was done on a budget.
