Budget Friendly Modern Farmhouse Master Bedroom Makeover

Having just moved to a townhouse 6 months ago, we've been slowly working room by room to make our place feel like home.

Like many others, my dream home is at the end of a tree-lined driveway with a lush green lawn, wrap around porch, and a welcome mat by the door ~ out in the country, of course!

So, although my current home is smack dab in the middle of town, I'm trying to give it a Modern Farmhouse heart.

The most recent space we tackled was our Master Bedroom :
It was a basic (and bland) blank slate to start with.
The wall across from the bed was an awkward space with a door leading to the main bathroom. Although a decent sized room, there wasn't a lot of wiggle room. The cedar chest at the end of our bed resulted in many stubbed toes...!
We started off the makeover by giving the room a fresh coat of paint, and adding in a feature wall of color.
The boring wall across from the bed got a new arrangement to create a little reading nook, and has become our favorite corner of the house!
Adding in layers and textures through re-purposing items we already had and budget friendly purchases, we finished off the space for under $200!
To check out all the details of the makeover with links to all the project tutorials, head on over to the Harbour Breeze Blog.

      The headboard feature wall is painted Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams. The other walls are Simply White by Benjamin Moore.

    Where did you get the great bicyle print over the bed?

      .The bicycle print is great, however, I would of hung it lower.
      It looks like it is hanging from the ceiling.

    There is no dresser and chest of drawers so where do they put clothes?
