House Tour: Master Bedroom and Bathroom

Posted in Decor, DIY Art, House Tour tagged , , , , at 7:41 am by BetweenWeekdays

I love our master bedroom. I do. It’s just the right size. It let’s in just the right amount of natural light. It’s completely comfortable. And it’s us. If any room in our house is us, I think it’s this one.

We’ve spent years collecting different pieces of furniture for this room. Isn’t it funny how your own space (in this case, the master bedroom) is at the end of the to-do list?

Did you notice the lampshades we recovered last year? They’re still one of my favorite projects to date.

Our bed is a massive California King. It’s funny because I’m 5’1, and my husband claims to be 5’9. I don’t think he’s actually that tall. In case you’re wondering, a California King is the longest bed you can buy.

It’s a long story. Before we were married, we were shopping in a small mall, which had a Bombay & Co. outlet. I fell in love with the bed frame, which we were told was a queen. The footboard was brown, but the headboard was black. So, in short, we scored such a fantastic deal on it that we had to have it. It sat in my in-laws basement for months waiting on us to be married. This was very convenient for me, because my mother-in-law stained the footboard black because she got tired of looking at the mismatched pieces. I told you it was a long story.

We recently purchased a Sleep Number mattress for this bed, so I suppose we’re stuck with a California King for the next 20 years. And, yes, the Sleep Number is magical. Travis’ sleep number is 35. Mine is sometimes 50 and sometimes 40. I’m indecisive like that.

The one thing I don’t like about this room is the closet.

think the photo above should speak for itself, but in case it doesn’t, this closet is teeny tiny. Originally this closet was only mine, but once we listed the house for sale, we downsized our wardrobes considerably to fit in into this one teeny tiny closet in order to make it appear like this house has ample storage.

Moving on…

This is my viewpoint from my side of the bed. You’ll notice the DIY paint chip art above the chest of drawers on the right. I just love it there. We only recently mounted the television, and it’s great to finally have it off of the furniture.

The doorway between the chests obviously leads to the master bathroom.

We thought long and hard about converting the tub into a shower, but, in the end, it just didn’t make sense. We’ve done virtually nothing to this space other than paint it and add some hardware and accessories. It’s not my most favorite room, but it’s sufficient.

The tour of the master bedroom and bathroom wraps up the main level of our home. Next, we’ll move into the downstairs apartment. If you’ve missed any of the tour, click here to go to a full listing of each room.
