Master Bedroom Makeover

We purchased our bedroom furniture many years ago.

It was a splurge

It is really great quality and I knew when we bought it, it would be around for a LONG TIME.

However………I got really tired of the dark stain.

Yeah, I like change

Here is the before

Totally fine

My inspiration photo below hit me right in the face.


This is the look I’m going for.

We might have slept on the floor for a few weeks.

The headboard, footboard and side rails were taken to the garage

It was a process

Recruit Mom because she is a fantastic helper.

Strip all the old stain off

Sand it smooth

Paint it a creamy white

Sand again

Stain and wipe off

Stain and wipe off

Stain and wipe off

You get the idea? I had no idea how many times, but it was a lot.

Sand again

Poly – sand – poly – sand – poly – sand

The last step was to create a tufted insert for the center section of the headboard

Again……mom to the rescue

I create the vision

Buy the stuff and she makes it happen

The final product is perfect.

While the tufting does not show as much as I would like, it still checked off all my boxes

I wonder if Steve cares we have pink pillows?

I didn’t ask

He didn’t say

The other furniture in the room also got an update. I’ll be back soon.
