Updating our Abode-Master Bedroom

 
Here's our master bedroom as we toured the house for the first time. It wasn't wall paper but it was a faux paint treatment that looked like wallpaper and the these huge stenciled urns on either side of the bed.  We moved our furniture in and couldn't wait to get our paint rollers on these walls.  Other projects took priority so we lived with the Grecian urns for awhile.

When we were finally able to paint the room, we chose Benjamin Moore Peanut Shell.  It was defnitely a nice,soothing change from the bright, sponge bob -ed on yellow.
These days it is not much different. We've replaced the grey carpeting with a golden sand and swapped out the chair and bench with some repurposed additions from around the house.  The vanity was a Christmas gift from my husband when we were first married. The mirror is the old mottled glass and I'm not changing it.
The bedding has been changed and we now have a down comforter so we can change the look by changing the duvet cover.  Our end tables and dresser(not shown) are hand me downs and the lamps, curtains and rods are all Tar-jay.
There's the black star from this transformation.
For some cozy ambience, not to mention fuction and storage, this all in one unit fits the bill perfectly!  We used it a lot over the winter for extra warmth but we can also turn off the heater function when we just want the glow.
So that's our master bedroom in a peanut shell. What do you think?  The walls are still pretty bare but we're still recovering from those urns!! Want to see what else we did to our abode?

YUP - definitely an improvement over the orange and urn look! Now it is comfy, calm and inviting!

I just saw a tutorial on another site on how to make perfect mirror glass look mottled and chipped. It seems that a lot of high end shops are selling the aged look for big bucks. You're once again ahead of the trend, but with an authentic piece! Love the colors and peace of the room. And the lack of urns.

Thanks Donna and Niki!! Love the comments!

Aw, but those urns just added so much presence and character to the space! LOL! I'm loving your new peanutty bedroom, and that fireplace+dresser+tv stand is awesome! Oh, if only we had the space! I also love how you can change up the look of the space with a new duvet cover. What a lovely room you guys have now! :)

I always feel a little guilty when I rip out something I think someone else may have loved and worked hard on---but I don't think I could live with the urns :) Your vanity is beautiful and I wouldn't change a thing!

Isn't it fun making the room yours instead of the people that had it before. Very nice and cozy room and nice wall color choice.
