Our bedroom went from chaotic and messy to peaceful, simplified, and character filled. Come see how we did this master bedroom makeover (on a budget too!). Affiliate links are included – full disclosure here.
Anyone else save the master bedroom for last?
I get it. We have too. But in this new house we PROMISED to flip it around. We knew that if we could make an amazing space for my husband and I to relax in at night and wake up in the morning, it would help us to pour into others better.
I am BEYOND thrilled with how this makeover turned out. It took time, but it was one thousand percent worth it!
Peaceful master bedroom makeover:
Honestly, I documented more of this process through video than through pictures, so you’ll have to watch this video to get the full effect! In less than 4 minutes, you can see our master bedroom transform from boring and blah to unique, peaceful, and purposeful:
Ah so much better!! But I also hope that shows you the PROCESS it takes to get to that “after” picture. It’s not overnight, and it’s not without a lot of mess.
WHY it all works:
The really cool thing about this bedroom was the fact that I had a clear plan in place. Of course DIY always has hiccups and you have to change those plans sometimes, but I realized I’ve developed a real system to design spaces.
I worked so hard putting down the specifics of that system into a course (or some people are calling it a program – whatever works for you works for me!). It’s called “Peace by Design: The Master Bedroom”.
In Peace by Design, I guide my students through a step-by-step process that helps eliminate overwhelm, unnecessary spending, and gives you a proven system to implement in your own home.
It’s based off of years of work, and I am so proud of the final product.
BUT it’s not just about design – it’s also really about bringing a peaceful atmosphere into your house. It’s about taking the power away from our STUFF and focusing on what’s really important and what will serve our families. It’s about focusing on the function of the room first, and then focusing on the decor elements.
The promotional price for the course is WAY discounted until April 1, 2020. This page should help answer any questions you have – and if you have more, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
Some of my favorite parts of this master bedroom makeover:
Board and Batten wall behind the bed:
If you’ve been here for less than 2 minutes, then you’ll know I’m a huge fan of adding architectural interest to any wall. It makes a HUGE difference to any room and I plan on doing it to every room in our new house eventually.
The board and batten behind our bed turned out so well, and I really love how the stained ledge on top turned out. It adds just the perfect amount of warmth to the space!
The dark green paint color:
I LOVE a good moody dark paint color, and we loved using this color in our home again!
It’s Benjamin Moore “Salamander” and it’s a good one. We used it in our bathroom in our last house too:
If you’re looking for other recommendations for dark paint colors, here’s my tried and true favorite dark paint colors (and pictures of how they REALLY look):
The finished product:
I honestly am so happy with how the whole bedroom turned out. But not just because it looks good…
- we had an intentional design plan
- it functions well FIRST and then we made it look good
- the room is full of cozy textures and warmth
- it is a peaceful place that helps us relax at the end of the day and wake up in a space we love
It would be my honor to teach you my proven system for doing the same in your bedroom!

Quick question. Did you sand down the texture off the wall before placing the batten board and painting?
Thank you so much,
no we didn’t but we also don’t have textured walls 🙂
What is the white trim paint color you used with this dark green color?
Hello! It’s Benjamin Moore semi-gloss untinted trim paint 🙂
Love the look. What color are the doors on either side of the desk?
