One Room Challenge | Week 2 : Budget Friendly Master Bedroom Makeover

Welcome to week 2 of the One Room Challenge! I'm linking up as a guest participant and joining in the decor fun!

If you are new here, we are empty nesters that our currently living in a rental home where we are adding our personal touch with creativity and some elbow grease! You will find rental friendly tips and inspiration here on my blog! 

Has much happened in our master bedroom? No! In my usual One Room Challenge style, it takes me a while to decide what I'm going to do and then I go for it. So let's say I narrowed down a paint colour, decided on what I am going to do with our vintage armchair, and how I am going to arrange the furniture. The rest I will decide as I go along.

Here is the plan

We moved into our current home about 5 years ago. The bedroom wall colour was chosen by our landlord but after 5 years I am tired of it. I placed the furniture the way we had it in our previous house. I am ready for a change! It's not that I am dissatisfied, as this is one of the reasons I so hesitate jumping into the whole Instagram/blogging world again because I struggle with the madness of it all. But I am a visual person who finds peace when things are visually appealing to me. Our bedroom is our sanctuary and I am wanting to zhush it up!

This was our room when we moved in 5 years ago.

Our current space is stuck. We purchased a king sized bed and mattress two years ago and it was the BEST decision ever. Our bed is from Crate and Barrel and mattress from Sleep Country Canada. All the other furniture is from Ikea. I am hoping to find some vintage night stands on Facebook Marketplace, but if I don't stumble across what I like, I am fine with what we have despite their smaller size.

Hoping this upcoming long weekend will allow me to paint the walls. And start on the slipcover for the armchair after a quick visit to Ikea.
