Bedroom Makeover - Plain Jane to Glam!

Like most older split-level homes, our master bedroom is very small. It makes me crack up to even call it a master bedroom, given its size. Although our bedroom before our recent overhaul wasn't terrible looking, it was definitely "Plain Jane." It’s like we tried updating the room but never quite made it to the finish line.

The worst was this view from across our bed. The dressers did not match plus we had so much "blank" space above.

Our need for a proper closet made this bedroom makeover a "must." I was tired of covering up the non-functional old closet with curtains. Notice how haphazardly hung they were...I never intended the curtains to be a permanent solution to this eyesore of an area.

Here's another view of our "Plain Jane" master bedroom.

Now comes the dramatic "After" photos. View of bed. That's the same bed we had before but I upholstered the headboard!

View of closet area.

These jewelry hangers are both decorative and functional.

Below photo is the view from our bed. I repainted one of the dressers and removed the larger dresser out of room. My new custom closet holds all of my folding clothes.

MORE photos from this makeover can be found HERE. I just love how this room went from "Plain Jane" to "Glam."

    Where did the art above the bed come from?

    Really lovely! You made hanging jewelry artsy. The linen look headboard is simple and classy. The bed and rug/stool melds well but nothing overkill. Each individual thing you did seems simple but all together it’s a place I’d love to stay overnight(May I?😂). Btw, where did the closet come from? Did you purchase it and put it together or what? I love this room. Very well done and not just plain white on white on white...
