The big day is finally here-reveal day!! I am so excited to share with you the entire master bedroom retreat makeover. It has been tough for me to keep this under wraps because I was so happy with how it turned out, I wanted to share it immediately! If you are not familiar with the ORC, it is organized by Linda at Calling It Home and sponsored by House Beautiful. It is a biannual event every April and October where 20 bloggers are invited to makeover a space from start to finish in under 6 weeks. You can also participate as a guest participant, which is what I did.
In case you missed it, here are links to the first six weeks:

I wanted to remind you of the mood board which had all of the ideas for this space when I first started. Let me know what you think of the final reveal. I think it comes pretty close to my initial vision, with a few changes. Here was the mood board I shared in Week 1:
When you are working on a challenge-it is exactly that-a challenge. So, there are ultimately going to be some things that have to be changed. Here is what I accomplished in this space in just 6 weeks.
- Luxury bedding and linens
- New curtains
- Refinished dresser and hutch
- DIY Hanging Light Fixture
- New Artwork throughout
- DIY Wood Frames
- DIY Wood Beam
- Vintage ladder update
- Seating area at foot of bed
- Wine Refrigerator (moved from downstairs)
The gorgeous velvet blue bedding really adds the pop of color I was looking for and it really is as luxurious as it looks. You can read all about the bedding from QE Home | Quilts Etc. in Week 6 here.
Now you can’t have a master retreat without having luxurious sheets. These scalloped edge sheets are the softest sheets I’ve ever slept on! They are from Perfect Linens and were shared in Week 2 here.
The blessed sign really set the stage for the look I was going for. It is from Tre Sorelle Studios and is a Watercolor cotton boll painting that I shared in Week 5 here. The DIY Hanging light fixture can be found in Week 4 here.
This faux fur bench fits perfectly in front of the window. The grommet curtains are black out curtains and are a very warm neutral shade. They are from Subrtex and they really look so much better than the thin blue curtains I had previously.
The DIY Rustic Frames my Dad made me are a nice contrast to the whitewash furniture and tie in the DIY Wood Beams. You can get a tutorial for the frames shared in Week 5 here.
The vintage ladder was a $5 find from my Dad. I talk about decorating with ladders here.
The barn wood beam adds a rustic element to the room and covers up the white beam that was there previously. I can’t wait to decorate it for Christmas with garland. I probably should just enjoy it before I decorate it right?
The barn wood definitely adds a lot of interest to the room. I would absolutely love to put the cross beams on the peak of the vaulted ceiling. Wouldn’t that be cool?
The half moon window is one of my favorite things in the room. I can lie in bed and see the moon at night. It’s pretty sweet.
The tobacco basket and wreath add to the farmhouse touch I like.
OK. This is a little over the top I know. But, why shouldn’t I have a wine refrigerator in my master bedroom retreat? I had this in the kitchen and my Son moved it upstairs for me. It really is convenient to grab a water bottle at night or have a glass of wine.
Speaking of wine, my new spot to relax with my favorite Fabulous at 50 wine glass that I received as a gift and my new sitting area. The fabric on the chairs is the perfect shade of blue!
Fresh eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s and a scented candle finish the master bedroom retreat.
I would like to thank my wonderful sponsors who really made the room come together. This has been such a great time. I was able to get to know so many bloggers and really learned a lot! Hopefully I will take on the guest bedroom in the Spring!
