Over the weekend my mom and I sat down and looked over the three style boards that I created for ideas for her master bedroom makeover. You can view my previous post here. My mom decided that number 1 was her overall favorite but she liked bits and pieces from each board. For a reminder here are the 3 style boards that I created:
Here were the few items that my mom liked from the different boards and her favorites are circled. So let’s see what made the cut?!
I really love the items that she chose and I really want to incorporate all of these items into her bedroom makeover. The only problem is a few of these items are a little spendy but that doesn’t discourage me. I am confident that we can find items similar to these for more than half of the price. I’m excited to keep you updated on this journey of my parents bedroom makeover. Below are the items and where they can be purchased.
We will probably wait until summer is over to really get working on her master bedroom transformation as my parents live at their cabin in Lake Okoboji during these months. This just gives me more time to find the perfect items and find them for cheaper prices! 🙂 Have a great day everyone and see you Friday! Oh, and Happy Birthday Mom! I wish I could buy you all of these items and create your dream bedroom but I guess you are just going to have to wait!

I love it!! I think all the boards are great, but the one you came up with by combining them is my favorite! Do you use a software program to make your boards? I can’t wait to see the finished bedroom!
Thanks! The combination of the boards is my favorite too! I’m so excited to start searching for these products at a cheaper price! I made this with the app Polyvore!

Ruthie, you mom has impeccable taste! I love all the things that made the cut. I’m especially loving that hanging light, headboard, and chair…Ah, I love all 6 things really. 🙂
Thank you so much! I think she does too! If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be blogging about home decor and DIY! She has always been my teacher and inspiration!

Those were my choices too!
I see that the TVs are on dressers approximately the same width. Awhile back when looking for something for my 42″ flat screen I read a tip for selecting a piece of furniture on which to place a television. Mine had been sitting on a low bookcase a few inches wider. The article said the TV should take up no more than 3/4 of the length of whatever it sits on.
I found a vintage buffet at the thrift store for $60.00. It is 6 feet long and in perfect condition; however, I plan to chalk paint and slightly distress it. The additional surface allowed me to soften the look of the big black rectangle by creating small vignettes on either side. The difference is amazing!
That’s a great tip! I never thought about it that way! It totally would look less distracting if it was on a large piece of furniture! Thanks for the advice Maggie!
Hi, Ruthie! I love the light fixture your mom selected–it’s really unique! I’m sure the room will be a restful, elegant retreat.
Thanks, Sharon! I really like that light fixture too! I’m obsessed with finding fun and unique fixtures! I really think it changes a space!

Ooh I love everything she picked… Especially
the chandelier! I hope you share your sources when you find more affordable options. Happy birthday to your mom!
Thanks Sydney! I love the chandelier! I’ve thought about maybe trying to make it myself too!? I don’t know 🙂 I will definitely share the sources when I find the cheaper options! Thanks for reading!

Love it Ruthie! I definitely love the combination of the looks. Can’t wait to see the final room, yay!
Thanks Stephanie! I’m anxious to get started on it!
