Happy Thursday, peeps! After, count them, FIVE photo shoots of my master bedroom, I think I finally have some decent pictures to show you. I am now convinced that, if you can master proper lighting techniques with your camera, you can conquer anything.
This is what the room looked like before we moved in.
Yes. The ceilings are painted a darker green than the walls. I affectionately call this paint color Fruit Loop Green ‘cuz that’s what it reminds me of. (I have always despised Fruit Loops, by the way.)
The first thing we did after painting the ceiling and walls was change out the light fixture.
We purchased our bedding for 70 percent off at a furniture store going-out-of-business sale.
This table was given to me by my mother-in-law. I refinished it to match our existing furniture.
The drapes and hardware were purchased from Walmart. Did you notice that I haven’t yet finished putting all the photographs in my wall-mounted jewelry case? Yes. The work is never done. Sigh. Plus I had to keep the hubs, tiny (our five-year-old daughter) and our dog out of this room long enough to take these pictures. This room DOES NOT LOOK THIS NEAT ON A REGULAR BASIS. Just keepin’ it real, people.
The canvas artwork on the right was purchased for $20 at my favorite discount store of all time, Gabriel Brothers.
Now on to the fun part — TODAY’S GIVEAWAY. Look closely at the master bedroom photos I’ve posted. Is there something important missing from our room? The first person to send me a comment with the correct answer will win a FREE COPY of Ellie Kay’s book, Living Rich for Less. Shipping is on me.
