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!

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.  In the 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, 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.

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 large piece of furniture, 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.
