Before and After Master Bedroom

I am so PUMPED to show you our Master Bedroom today!!! I am absolutely in LOVE with it!! NO joke!

I know I have never shown anyone our master before....and it is because I have never really liked it. When we moved into our house, everything that I did not like in the main living area ended up in our room. I want to show you a before picture first...this is from the MLS list for our house...

Then we moved in and made it look like this...

There isn't too much going on....the dresser really steals your attention because it is huge. The bedding is mismatched and not calming. I have been brainstorming for a while looking for inspiration. We decided to paint the room....which we completed last weekend. This weekend, my parents came to town and my mom helped me shop for the rest of the room! There are some things that we shopped my house for...and others we went shopping for. We got everything from HomeGoods and Target (except for a quick trip to Kirkland's). So HERE IT IS!!!

When  you first walk in, this is the first thing you see on the wall opposite the bed...

On the left when you come in, my vanity is set up for getting ready...

I am obsessed with this cozy corner!!!

We hung some special things above the chair. A drawing of our Callie (Gabe's grandpa did it!), a cross, and a drawing of a camp that I used to go to every summer.

We are loving the TV on our new dresser with some simple accent pieces...

The blue/grey curtains bring a lot of warmth to the room...

This mirror is on the wall next to the bed. I thought about doing a gallery wall here but when I saw this mirror, there was no turning back! :)

I could not be more in love with our bed!! We used an old room divider as a headboard with my burlap wreath hanging from it.

I am in love! It is sooo cozy!

Here is a look at the before and after pictures side by side...
