Rustic & Coastal Master Bedroom Makeover

As my home renovation journey continues, today I'm sharing the first room in the new house to be {just about} finished! My initial goal was to have my master bedroom completed BEFORE actually moving into the house. But, as is the case with most renovations, everything takes far longer than anticipated! I've been squatting in the room next door, eagerly anticipating the day that I could move into my new and improved beautiful bedroom! Let's take a look at the space throughout the renovations...

DIY Shiplap Plank Wall

The first item to tackle was removing the window to the left of the room to make the furniture placement in the space fit a bit better. Since there are two other windows in the room, losing light wasn't an issue! I attempted, in vain, to remove the wall paper but quickly gave up and decided to use a plank board tutorial to cover up the walls instead. My suggestion would be to paint or prime the wall paper BEFORE putting up the boards so that the pattern doesn't show through in the nickel sized gaps... let's just say I learned that lesson the hard way!


Before I painted & decorated the room I created a design board for inspiration. I was going for a 'rustic meets coastal' look in the space with a soft, calming color scheme. The bed pictured above is from Target, although I ended up just using the headboard I already had (also from Target). The paint color I chose is Window Pane from Sherwin Williams.

Rustic Light Fixture

The ceiling fan was replaced with a low profile light fixture. I LOVE this fixture!! I shopped all around looking for something affordable and rustic-looking. This one IS rustic looking but a bit of a splurge, at least for my budget, but I couldn't be happier as it really adds some interest to the space. The floors were stripped of the worn-down orange stain and then re-stained. That process in itself will wait for another post as we attempted to DIY the floors and it did not end well! I had to bring in the pros...lesson learned!

Are you ready to see the space now that it's all pretty?! Here it is...

I still have some decorative touches to add (like maybe some framed art above the bed and something on top of the dresser) and need to finish organizing the closet spaces, but I really could not be happier with how things turned out! The rug, ceiling fixture, and side lamps are all new but the rest of the items I was able to reuse from my previous house, which made this makeover pretty affordable!

Here's the source list:
-Hardwood floor color is 'Jacobean' stain by Minwax (on red oak flooring)
-Area rug is from Overstock
-Side lamps are from Lowes
-Ceiling light fixture is from Wayfair
-Wall paint color is 'Window Pane' from Sherwin Williams
-Bedding and curtains are from Home Goods (purchased a few summers ago)
-Cordless Roman Shades were purchased from Amazon
-Nailhead trim headboard is from Target (similar)
-Side tables were purchased 10 years ago from Christmas Tree Shop
-Mirror is from IKEA (purchased it at a yard sale and painted)
-Dresser is a Salvation Army find that I painted white and then distressed

In case you forgot where is all started, here's a 'before' and 'after' of my rustic/coastal bedroom retreat...

The next space I'll be tackling is the full bath, which is done being renovated but just awaiting paint. I'll be sure to share that makeover journey soon! 

I post daily home renovation updates over on Instagram...hope to see you there!
