Transformation Tuesday – Master Bedroom
It has been over a month since I have shared a Transformation Tuesday, but if you follow my blog you know I have been sharing makeovers in our home. We have lived in our home for almost three years, and it is fun to look back at the photos from when we moved in and see where we are now. Today I am sharing our master bedroom. Here is an image from our home listing when we purchased the house:
And here is how it looks now:
Besides the obvious furniture change, I only did a few things to this space. This room is part of the reason I first fell (hard) in love with our home. I absolutely loved all the light as well as the vaulted ceilings with the exposed beams. After we moved in, I did three easy things to the space:
- PAINTED THE WALLS. The walls were painted with Sherwin Williams Repose Gray (SW 7015). I changed the color from a (greenish) beige to a lighter gray.
- ADDED WINDOW TREATMENTS. Window treatments were added to the large wall of windows (I found the extra-long cream velvet curtains online, but unfortunately I cannot remember where we bought them). This was the most expensive of the three room changes, but I love how it softens the room.
- REARRANGED THE FURNITURE. The window is definitely the focal point of the room, and I wanted the bed to be the focal point also (it is a BEDroom). I feel moving the bed in front of the window made the biggest impact out of all the small changes we made.
The large turquoise mirror on the wall was one of my first (ever) DIY projects. You can see the tutorial HERE. Also, I recently share the source of my bedding, and you can read more HERE. The large floral bulletin board was another DIY project, and I share all the details HERE.

I’ve slowly been making over our master bedroom. It’s been fun to finally give the room we spend the most time in some (well deserved) attention!
One thing I’m embarrassed to admit? We have had the SAME mattress since we were first married – 14 years ago. Horrifying, I know. We decided that the most important thing in a master bedroom makeover had to be a new mattress.
We bought a Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress from Big Lots, and it is AMAZING! Not only is it incredibly comfortable, but it sits taller than our old mattress and box springs. This adds to the elegant look I’m going for with our bedroom.
We took a family trip to Big lots and tested out the mattresses. They have a large array of quality mattresses and most are in stock.
While we were there, I had to pick up some new sheets so I could dress up the new mattress.
600 thread count = luxury!
I’m a huge advocate of making your bed every day, and I think it’s worth a couple of minutes of your time before you run out the door. It’s a way of clearing the clutter and starting fresh – what a great way to start your day, right?! And when you make your bed, here are four tips to making it extra special:
Sheets are an important piece to a pretty (and comfortable) bed. I believe one of the easiest ways to make a pretty bed is to fold down the sheet and duvet/comforter. It looks inviting and adds an extra touch – and the fold requires only a few extra seconds.
Also, I’m a huge sham fan – they are both pretty and functioning. I use them when I’m sitting up and reading. Throw pillows are the final touch. You want enough to make the bed special but you don’t want so many that it’s over the top. For me, three seems to be the magic number.
Besides the mattress, the final piece to finishing up our master bedroom makeover was figuring out what to do with the blank wall when you first walk into the room. We’ve been wanting to create a small desk area to use with our laptops, and we found the perfect solution.
We created a work area with a beautiful desk we found at Big Lots.
It’s traditional with a modern twist, and it’s the perfect solution for my blank wall and need for workspace.
And, the added bonus? There are plugs and USB hubs on the back of the desk!
I bought the mattress and desk on two separate trips, and I have to tell you that the Big Lots employees were incredibly kind and helpful. They quickly let me know if my items were in stock (in both cases, they were!), and they helped me load them into my car.
During a visit to Big Lots, I found this pretty wine-inspired candle and monthly view calendar (styles and assortment vary by store.) It’s amazing what all you can find at Big Lots, and you can click HERE to see more!
And the flower vase was yet another great find from Big Lots!
My bedroom is comfortable, inviting, and functional now thanks to the furniture and home decor items I found at Big Lots! Check out Big Lots on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. What do you think of my master bedroom makeover?
