elcome to the full tour of the master bedroom makeover at WhisperWood Cottage. It has truly been a labor of love! We transformed the space from dreary builder blah to what I call industrial coastal cottage. I love everything about the room including the added storage, the comfortable bed, and the new airy feeling. It is truly my favorite room in the house. (Roeshel’s too!)
The new flooring and wall treatments make all the difference for creating the warm, yet bright and airy, feeling in this room! Tricia@Life At The Zoo (Hi Tricia!) got it right went she commented, “
Here, we added a closet clad in horizontal planks and featuring a set of antique store-front doors. Now hubby has his own closet and we were able to get rid of an armoir, a cabinet, and a dresser that were holding his clothes beforehand.
We already owned all the furniture in this room except for the canopy bed. Everything else was found over the years at garage sales, estate sales, antique stores, flea markets, discount stores, and even ebay. The white bedding is a combination of TJMaxx finds and Pottery Barn clearance items.
My closet was clad in horizontal wood planks. The door treatment consists of a door rescued from a university renovation and a salvaged flat track and trolley from an 1800s barn that was being torn down.
A second school door and track/trolley set is now being used as the door to the master bath.
THE EXTRA TOUCHES
The accessories for this room are kept to a minimum. For me, they evoke a combination of earthy and coastal charm.
STILL WORKING ON…
Wall 4 still needs some help. I moved in this long bench (a $5 garage sale find!) that was out on the back deck. The weathered gray is divine and the length is perfect!! I’d like to frame out that mirror in a special way. And I’d like to hang those two win
dows somewhere in the room. I don’t want to add to much “stuff” on the walls. I love the clean, serene feeling. I know the big white wall might seem bare, but it is calming at night and refreshing in the morning. It gives my mind a break. Do you know what I mean?
I have most of the closet done, but still have some finishing touches. Yes, it is looking much better than the photos below. Plus it is much more organized!! I can’t wait to show you the photos! I still need to figure out a way to hang my hats on that back wall.
We added these top-down/bottom-up cellular shades to the windows. We have these throughout the house and I love them! I just found some silk drapes in a silver color on clearance. I only have two drapes though. Can I add one to each window?
