It has been a while... Gray Master Bedroom is finally here!

It has been a while since I wrote for the last time. So many things happened that I had to take a break from blogging. Oh well... I am back! :-) I finally took some pictures of my gray master bedroom (or at least part of it). So happy with the final result! Don't forget to check the before and after photos (at the end) to see the dramatic change.


If you have been following my blog since the beginning you know I have been working on this bedroom forever and ever. That means many trips to the stores, many hours online looking for inspiration, many hours on Craigslist and Ebay looking for a good deal. However, this is something that I enjoy doing. It's like a hobby!

So... Where did everything come from?

The paint on the wall is Benjamin Moore Sheridan Gray (DC-07).

The bed is from Arhaus Furniture. I am fortunate to live close to an Arhaus warehouse. So I got this bed for more than 50% off. :-)


The duvet cover is from Hampton Inn Hotels. Hampton Home Collection sells these duvets for $185+. However I found mine on Ebay. It was brand new and I paid only $50 for it! Yes, I am a deal hunter! ;-)

All the white pillows are from Home Goods. The standard size white pillowcases are Ralph Lauren and both of them were $5. Yeah, you read that right!




Wall picture is from Home Goods ($18), Sunburst mirror is from Target ($29), floor mirror is from Lowe's ($10) and white drapes are from Bed Bath and Beyond. Black nightstand (tea table) is from Arhaus. White nightstand (chest) was originally a very hideous piece found on Craigslist for $20.  If you haven't seen it yet you can check the white chest transformation here.

Ready for the before and after pictures? Here we go...









Hope you enjoyed the transformation as much as I did.

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  12. Beautiful transformation! Aren't you just loving the gray tones now...I feel like all my walls are currently cream/beige, etc and one by one they all seem to be getting a dose of gray paint in one shade or another. Incredible find on the duvet, its perfect! The room looks completely different and updated.

  26. Beautiful transformation. So peaceful and relaxing, a soothing retreat at the end of the day. I know what you mean about a room redo taking forever, I'm involved in one of those too, probably a lot of us are :) But now you are done and at the end of the day you get to dive into your great bed. Enjoy your room.
