DIY Master Bedroom Built-ins

Our master bedroom was a big old square. Great on size but otherwise pretty bland. We dreamed of a space that was romantic and moody. A space much different than the rest of our house. The first project we tackled was a feature wall with wainscoting and built-in dressers and bookcases. It's the paint color though that really gives the space it's character. Still on the agenda is a headboard, new flooring,

This is the space right after we finished installing all the crown molding. It gives you an idea of how everything went up on the wall.

Shelf styling isn't really my forte but that's the next thing to tackle on my list. I love the way the brass pops against the dark color!

    What type and size of wood did you use to make the headboard area?

      There doesn't appear to be a headboard per se. It's just the wall with molding strips on it. She said a headboard was a future project but I like it as is!
