Master Bedroom Makeover

A beautiful little girl said to me . . .

~ ~ “Grandma, it sure would be nice if I had my own room in your house” .

We have always told our sweetie that our house is her house too.

Her wish is our command…

We obtained a bedroom set for her from my friend and neighbor.

Thus began the re-locating of 11 pieces of furniture (My hubby is a saint!!!)

This is the way the room was arranged before . . .

~ ~ with the bed in the bay window area.

Master Bedroom for Spring

With some major re-arranging . . . this is what it looks like now.

Master Bedroom Makeover

The bed is no longer in the bay window/sitting area . . .

~ ~ it is actually where it is supposed to be according to the original room design.

Master Bedroom Makeover

The bedding is the same . . the Furber print was relocated above the head of the bed.

Master Bedroom Makeover

Replaced the comfy yellow chair with this bench that was in one of the guest baths.

Master Bedroom Makeover

The dresser was originally where the bed is now . . .

~ ~ we moved it to the opposite side of the room where the wash stand and shelf were . .

~ ~ ~ ~ oh, forgot about that mahogany shelf . . that makes 12 things we moved!!

Master Bedroom Makeover

This tall chest was one of two things that was not moved in the room!

Master Bedroom Makeover

Now with the bed on the wall that the dresser was on . . .

~ ~ and the dresser on the opposite side of the wall . . what is in the bay window area???

I added a table . .

Master Bedroom Makeover

Well, actually three!

Master Bedroom Makeover

I needed a table for my tea set that I purchased in France . .

Master Bedroom Makeover

And to set my cup of tea on . . .

Master Bedroom Makeover

My friend and neighbor had a table that she was letting go that fit the bill . .

Now are you getting any hints on what is in the bay window area?

One of the three tables added to this area . . .

~ ~ along with the chair that was in another area of the room.

Master Bedroom Makeover

The “tea table” . . .

Master Bedroom Makeover

Master Bedroom Sitting Area

Yes, you are right . . .

~ ~ the furniture in the sitting area which was in the craft room landed here.

That room was originally a second guest room/craft room . . .

~ ~ and now it will be our sweetie’s room . . . well at least half of it!!

Master Bedroom Makeover

The mirror was relocated to this corner. . .

Master Bedroom

I am truly loving this arrangement. . . now that it includes a great sitting area .

Even though I loved to see the bed as the focal point when I entered the room . . .

~ ~ having the pretty sitting area makes up for that.

Master Bedroom Makeover

Change sometimes is a good thing . . .

Master Bedroom Makeover

To sit down and “smell the roses” and have a cup of tea!

Hope you all have that special place too!

Have a most wonderful day, taking time to smell the roses.

  20. Fabulous! That’s a perfect size room. I like the new location of the bed even if it’s not front and center as you walk in. Your room is gorgeous- the ceiling is fantastic- especially the way it’s painted. The new sitting area in the bay window is perfect- I’d be sipping coffe on my iPad every morning! I bet the new bedroom is cute!

  21. I love it! Beautiful room. Blue paint looks restful. My bedroom furniture is very much like yours, but have had it foe years.

    You know how I love to visit your home!! Your bedroom is so beautiful.. all the crown molding and those gorgeous plantation shutters.. to die for! You and the Mr. are just the best grandparents to make her a room of her own. I know she is the apple of your eye. You are so blessed in so many ways. Your bedroom is so lovely bet you never want to come out!

  24. Oh your room is so pretty! I’ve told you before that the layout of our room is similar and our furniture is too. I just never seem to do much to our room. You make me want to go spend money and fix it up!!

    Where did you get your bed comforter?

  27. Shirley, this looks so restful. I like the bench you now have at the end of the bed, and the sitting area is just perfect, with the natural lighting from the bay window. Can’t wait to see how you’re arranging the guest/craft room for your granddaughter.

  28. Love the make over – it really looks good, in fact I like it better. Now I would like to see how you fixed up the craft/guest bedroom for your little sweetie. I fixed my guest bedroom for Kelly many years ago and have re-done it now that she is getting older, but when they come down, Shaun get the bedroom and Kelly loves to sleep on the day bed in the den so she can lay in bed and watch her cartoons.
    Looking forward to seeing her special room.

  29. Your room looks great, Shirley! It is amazing what a difference just moving furniture around can do. I love your mirror. I just mentioned to my hubby this morning that we need a full length mirror. I’m tired of not being able to see my whole self!

  30. It looks so pretty. I love the sitting area you made. I bet that was a lot of work since that furniture is heavy.

  31. What a beautiful bedroom. I need to work on ours. It’s been the same for 12 years. You are a Granny after my own heart. I’ve always decorated my guest rooms with each grandchild in mind. The 13 and 16 yr. old still spend the night occasionally. Also other guest use them of course. The oldest two,
    a college freshman and college graduate will still have a room at my house even though they will probably never use it. Thanks for your inspiration.

  32. What a beautiful room.

  33. Shirley, your “new” bedroom is absolutely devine! I love the duvet and the paint color. Could you share where you got the duvet and what is the color of the walls? You are a very special grandma!

  34. Oh my! I have always LOVED your master, and I still love the changes. The room will always be beutiful no matter how you arrange it. I love theat the beautiful little one will now have her OWN ROOM!!!!!! Your tea set is beautiful too! Can you tell me where you got your blinds in your room? I am in DESPERATE need of new window treatments for our master. I AM desperate!!!!!

  35. Shirley! Your bedroom is totally scrumptious! It’s just gorgeous! Love all of your changes.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 🙂

  40. Shirley,you did a fantastic job arranging your master bedroom! I know your “sweetie” is so excited to see that she has her own room. I love the changes that you made to your room. The sofa was a perfect addition and such an inviting place to sit and have tea! The arrangement of your furniture looks wonderful and your accessories are so pretty! I also love the chandelier! Often, it can be difficult to visualize a room a different way, but you have made it look so easy and fabulous! Have a great weekend!

  41. I love the change. It just looks spectacular, Shirley.

  42. Love it Shirley. The room looks so pretty. Love the new seating area.

  43. You are so lucky to have a master bedroom large enough to not only have a sitting area, but apparently one that is very generously sized. I used to have a bay window somewhat similar to that and I opted to put a chaise in that spot. There really is something very comforting about being able to have a place of one’s own like that.

    I know what you mean about wanting your bed to be the first thing you see, but it really looks much better where it is since it is not blocking part of your lovely window.

    Now…..something tells me that as pretty as your bedroom is, your granddaughter’s room is going to top it ;).

  46. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that you made a GREAT decision here!!! This is a wonderful arrangement, and even with the additional furniture it STILL looks spacious! This is going to be IT for you! LOVE it!!!!!!!

  47. Oh… I love it… Tea time for me, please… I’ve gotten use drinking tea at either lunch time or at break… Gorgeous room…

  48. Your new arrangement is so pretty. I LOVE the colors you’ve chosen and the sitting area and tea table. Sooo pretty.

    I loved the bird these bed sheets shown on your web site I saw today. I have been looking for just that kind of sheet. Can you tell me where I can buy them. I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your response. Joan.

  52. Nancy Carroll says

    Just love it!!! Can you tell me the wall paint color?

  53. LOVE your master bedroom,it is elegance personified! Thanks for sharing it with us, you are featured this week at Ivy and Elephants. Please feel free to stop by and grab a featured button.

  54. Can you share with me the wall color?

  55. Hi, Shirley.

    LOVE the entire room and especially the bedspread. Is it a duvet cover? Would you mind sharing your source for it or the name of the fabric and where it can be purchased if it was custom made? Thank you for the inspiration.


  56. Love your room! Can you please tell me what the maker and paint color is? Thank you!

  57. In love with this room! Just the colors I’ve been looking for in bedding. I have the same questions of paint color and bedding source. I realize after these many years, it probably won’t be available, but . . .

  58. Wha a beautiful room! The furniture seems to “fit” better with this layout. Only, how old is your granddaughter? This seems like a very adult space. I would love it for myself!

  59. Helene Wanker says

    I love your bedroom furniture and your bedroom. They just don’t make furniture like that any more. I have been looking all over for a four poster bed and pieces in a Chippendale style. Can you please share with me where you found the furniture.?

  60. I just love it! I would like to know the paint color and number if possible.

  61. Where did you get your bedding?
