Master Makeover on a Budget

What took me so long to finally transform our master bedroom into a cozy cottage retreat for the Mister and me?  I don't know.  I guess I have a tendency to work on the spaces that people see the most. But this room update was long overdue and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

I think we can all agree that a new coat of paint goes a long way in updating a room.  
Paint is also an affordable way to transform a space.  

As my home as gotten lighter and brighter over the last couple of years with updates, it was only natural that I chose another "white" for the master as well.

I chose Pure White by Valspar.

I knew I wanted to also do a feature wall behind our new bed. I wanted something a little rustic with lots of character. After doing a DIY backsplash in our kitchen last year using wallboard, I knew this would also work well for a feature wall. 

All it took was one trip to Lowe's and I found exactly what I needed: Weathered Pine wallboard.  
It wouldn't even require a coat of white paint.  SOLD!

Three and a half sheets was all we needed to hang to transform this space.

Paint and wallboard were just the beginning......

Drop cloth curtains, DIY silver trays, and a few other simple changes and what a difference!

We even found a primitive barn door to turn into a new headboard. I love the contrast of the old door with the delicate chenille bedspread by The Country Door

And my sweet mama gave me an antique chair for the corner of the room. I was wanting to create a cozy corner for doing my morning devotionals. I call it my "prayer chair". 

The Mister and I are really enjoying our little haven. It's such a cozy space for us to relax and unwind each day. The only regret I have is waiting so long to work on it.
