Master Bedroom Makeover

Our bedroom is one room I never seem to get right.  But this time I like it.
Our original bed frame was an IKEA find.  I never loved it but it wasn’t very expensive.
I have tried several different headboard options from doors to shutters and garden gates but I always went back to the sturdy IKEA frame.  But – I got sick of it again.
I started my project with a large salvaged window hung with D rings and monkey hooks.
From there I cut down an old door to bulk up the sides.  I just kept adding trim around it until it looked “big” enough.  I used my nail gun to attach the wood to the wall.
(I bought NOTHING…all this was in my garage)
That antique mirror goes with our piano.
  I like the shelf – it’s hung with old PB candle scones and a couple of small angled supports.
The shelf wood is from IKEA’s “damaged/final sale” section.  I was supposed to build a bunk bed for the boys out of it.  (….another day)
In case you were wondering – the shelf is 5 1/2 inches deep & high enough that I can stand on my knees on my bed and barely see my hair in that mirror – and I have big hair.  So it doesn’t get in the way of reading & relaxing.
I printed Mr. & Mrs. on vinyl from my Cricut & framed them with wood from the sides of an old door that I had cut down.
I put a dark rug under the bed for contrast.  I really want dark wood floors but …. not today.
Well – until next time.
I think I’ll go read a book in my new bedroom.
