Things are moving along in my master bedroom! This week I was able to strip the second nightstand and paint one more wall.
Here’s the current situation:
I was pleasantly surprised at how well the wood tones match on the two dressers. I love how they are similar but one is a little more masculine than the other!
I bought a full set of brass pulls for this dresser, but I really like how the black knobs contrast the wood. So before I replace all of them, I’m going to try to match the missing one.
I also need to add a little height to the dresser to match the one on the left. I tried the ones in the photo above but they aren’t working. I’m thinking I might try small wheels…we’ll see what I can find!
Here are a few things I’m debating for this part of the room:
- What kind of lamps? The lamps in the photo are what I had originally and I’m thinking I need something a little darker.
- Do I keep the bench? I like having the bench at the end of the bed, so I’m trying to decide on whether or not I’ll keep it or switch it out with another one I already own.
- Artwork…I think I’m going to leave the wall above the bed empty and add smaller artwork above the nightstands. What are your thoughts?
Next week I need to finish painting the room and hang the curtains. I decided on a simple, white linen curtain. (One of the blinds are broken so they need to be replaced. I’m still on the hunt for those…fingers crossed I will have those picked out and ready to share next week. )
I also got a small desk for in-between the windows. The plan is to use it as a makeup table. (My husband said I won’t use it…I intend to prove him wrong! 😉)
That’s about all I have for now. Check back next for more progress!
To see the design plan and what I’ve accomplished so far, check out Week 1 and Week 2.
I love your bedroom, but if I were to hang any picture[s], I would hang a big beautiful picture you love, over the head of the bed since the headboard is not tall. I would not hang it over the nightstands, because the beautiful lamps already give the needed height. I would also get two to three books and place on the nightstands, then put a small terra-cotta pot and put some green fake flowers in them. If I were to do anything with the nightstands, it would be to put a whitewash look, this would make them match beautifully with the gorgeous bench at the foot of the bed. yes, I would for sure leave the bench at the foot of the bed. I would add the arch-looking mirrors on top of the nightstands, placing them behind the lamps, leaning against the wall. I have a question, where did you get the fabulous bench at the foot of your bed? if you made it, do you have a step by step tutorial on how you made it?

I think a taller and skinnier lamp on each nightstand would look great. I like Ivory’s idea of putting a mirror on top of the nightstands and leaning them against the wall. And definitely keep the bench! I can’t wait to see the end result!
