This room is taking us FOREVER. In fact, I wanted to wait to show you my master bedroom until the entire thing was done, but let’s be honest, we have been working on this room since August when we posted our inspiration designs. Plus, I am the type of person that takes my time to find just the right fabric, just the right end tables, just the right dresser…etc for the room I’m working on {even if it takes a year to do so}. I promise I will keep posting our progress, but it is a SLOW process this time. Some rooms are quick, and some just aren’t, and that is ok. It’s more important to me that I love the room when we get done.

First, we painted the room white! It is soooo much brighter in there, and I am so happy! Next, we installed molding {some spell it moulding, but both are correct as far as I know} around the entire room. For a step by step tutorial on how to install frame molding check out our tutorial. It has added so much character and texture to the room.

My cute hubby built me a TV frame for our flatscreen tv, and although I’ve heard all the reasons why not to have a tv in our bedroom, we still do.


We are still rocking the yellow wingback chair that we upholstered ourselves ages ago, and I am on the fence about keeping it in the room.

Our master bedroom is definitely one of our most popular projects we have ever done here at All Things Thrifty. But after a few years of dark walls, I needed a brighter, happier room.

I loved the quatrefoil wall art project that was hanging in our room too, but it was definitely time to let go.

We will be building our own headboard this time around also. In fact, we have all the supplies sitting in the garage.  We got the rug from RugsUSA {no this is not an ad}.

I don’t know if you can see very well in this picture, but we painted the window seat alcove a minty grey color called “Greyed Jade.”


The molding boxes are a breath of fresh air. And I pretty much owe my husband his every wish and desire for the next 6 months for how long they took to install!

The grey quilt is from HomeGoods. {I am not sponsored by HomeGoods, but to be honest, if I had the chance I would JUMP on the opportunity. I love that store}.


The tufted benches are also from HomeGoods.


We made our own flower pillows with the fabric I posted about HERE, and the other pillows are also from HomeGoods. I realize that this post may sound like a HomeGoods commercial, but I live in a relatively small town with very little choices on stores to shop at. Luckily HomeGoods is local or I would go wacky.


I love the color possibilities, and the pillows make me happy!


The pillow on the wingback chair is one of my favorite elements in the room so far!





We still have a long list of things to do in the room, but it is coming together nicely! Hopefully we can rip out the yucky carpet in there sooner than later because I truly HATE the carpet.
Patience is a virtue I need to work on!

    The moldings look amazing! I wish that our HomeGoods was closer.. it is almost an hour away, but worth the drive! We do have a T.J. Maxx closer to us that has a small home section but it is not the same!

    Thanks for the progress report. It’s good to show that these huge projects take time. Huge reveals with the before and after are cool, but it doesn’t show how much time it takes and how much work goes into every detail. The moulding looks beautiful. Love the paint, too.

    I’m curious: did you leave a gap at the top of the TV frame? TVs have ventilation openings on the back and can generate some decent heat, so I would think it might be a bad idea to completely enclose it.
