This past weekend we decided to give our master bedroom a much needed makeover. I think that your bedroom should be a place where you feel like you can relax and get away from the stress and problems of the world. Well our old design wasn't cutting it so we had to do some changes and I LOVE how it came out! The best part is that it only took a weekend to do and about $100!
This is how the bedroom looked before... not very inviting or relaxing. It was just kinda blah.
So we headed to the home improvement store and picked up some wood and cut it into planks.
We nailed it onto the wall ad filled the nail holes.
Then I sanded, primed and painted it! Make sure to check out my blog post with tips and tricks that saved me tons of time when it comes to painting the wall!
And that's it! I then put in some new pillows, painted some cabinets for a more warm feel in the room.
Lastly I bought some fun lamps and wall art to make it look even better! Make sure you check out the blog post for a VERY detailed tutorial on how I did the wall, what wood I used and how I figured out what size to cut the planks.

    I love it. I'm going to do this with my grandchildren this fall in the livingroom and dining room. We will use plywood cut into strips for us. Many hands make light work!
