Master Bedroom Renovation - COMPLETE!!!

We've been in our home for 2 years and one month and one week now and LOVE IT! We have a beautiful subdivision, great neighbors and a lovely home. We've added our touches to different areas since purchasing, but our bedroom was the "next big thing" on our list of plans. (pool next?!?!)

Anyway, it started with needing new bedroom furniture. We had been using a beautiful set from my youth - solid wood and in great condition - but it was time to trade up a little. :) I blogged previously about it, but we settled on Bassett furniture and I (we) do love it! We also put Plantation Shutters throughout the front of the house and wow they look great!!! (baby steps for the entire house - ouch $$$!)

So now - what to do with the walls? Here were some of our color choices:
 We decided to go with Behr Ultra in Vast Desert on top and bottom and keep our white chip chair rail / mouldings.
 Oh - one more color palette to check out - the dark chocolate was pretty - but would have drowned out the beautiful color of our bedroom suite.
 So for the past few weeks we have been working on getting the room painted and the BIG accent wall stenciled. Stenciling was Robert's idea and I. LOVE. IT! So finally, after getting after it all day yesterday and reinforcements (i.e. Robert) coming in yesterday afternoon - our bedroom make over is COMPLETE and it's BE-U-TEE-FUL!

The stenciled wall and the plantation shutters. Love!
 Our new bed (still looking for bedding....but in no rush!). The stained glass piece I did a year ago really stands out even more now!
 Looking towards the master bath.
 Happy 10th birthday to Miss Sophie!!!! We love you, baby girl!
 And one more look, with the Mr. relaxing.
I was physically and even mentally exhausted yesterday. We rewarded ourselves with grilled T-bones and some Michelob Ultra. Well worth it!!!

How pretty! I love the stencil the most, but everything looks really great.

We're in the midst of some similar home renovation stuff... you'll have to go over to my blog to check it out.

Oh and I love how you "rewarded" yourself... that sounds perfect to me!

Looks beautiful!! I'm so jealous! I'd love to devote some time and money to our own's on the list! :)
