The day has finally come! My parents master bedroom decor is done! I first posted about their redo in September last year. So clearly this is the longest makeover in the history of makeovers, but we finally crossed the finish line. Just imagine my mom and I jogging in place pumping our fists in the air ala Rocky…”it’s the eye of the tiger”…
You’re welcome for the visual image as well as the Rocky theme song in your head now.
Before we get into all the details, might I remind you of the before?
Isn’t it crazy how dark it was before? It’s so light and bright now!
My parent’s were in major need of some extra storage and were even contemplating turning the adjacent sitting room into an extra closet. While I’m all for a huge dream closet with rotating shoe racks, (I don’t even know if they make those, but they should or ohh! remember the closet from Clueless?? I totally want one of those!) but their sitting room has gorgeous views of the lake not to mention a balcony, so it just didn’t seem like the best use of the space. I talked them out of the that one and eventually my mom came up with the builtins around the bed idea.
To save some dough I suggested reusing their existing headboard and footboard plus their nightstands. The carpenter did a great job incorporating them.
Love the little hidden cubbies on the sides, it’s the perfect spot to store phones, iPads, midnight snacks…
I mean, just saying, I personally keep a bag (or 3) of gummy worms in my nightstand for emergency situations, ahem.
My parents bathroom (I’ll be sharing that soon) only has one vanity, so my mom has this little corner of the bedroom to beautify herself (not that it takes much!)
The mirror is just propped up there for now, maybe someday it will be hung. My dad is one of those guys with a phobia of putting holes in the wall; my gallery wall would be enough to give him nightmares for a week.
This is one of several mermaids that my mom collects, she also has a fondness for collecting bunnies, and grandchildren :)
This has got to be the happiest little sign ever.
Sneak peek of the sitting room in this photo, that’s all you get for now!
