It is a simple space, nothing fancy, but I sometimes think simple is over looked.
I love the new lighter wall color and of course the new bed frame. I can't state how much I wanted this bed and what a difference it makes. I struggled with what style of bed I wanted. I have always loved iron beds, but I never actually thought about buying one (I am not exactly sure why, though). I thought I needed a sleigh bed or some other wood type style, but could never find one I really loved. And I hate to spend money on something if I don't really love it. But I fell in love with the simplicity of the Ikea bed and I was happy with the price point (I can love it for a few years and not feel horrible if I change my style). My only issue is that because of our ultra deep mattresses the bed is super tall and I had to re -think our night stand situation.
For my husband, I found a great dresser at the local good will. It is a solid piece and I loved that I didn't need to change out the hardware.
I am very happy with how everything has turned out. We have been using the room for a few months, and I feel at peace in the space. Sure, it is not the most opulent and grand master bedroom, but that was not what we wanted. A simple, clean space that allows us to relax and prepare for the day is what we needed.
For me to finish off the space it cost me around $500, and most of that was the bed frame and the dressers, like $400 of the budget went to those 3 items. The rest was either things we had around the house or careful shopping. My favorite budget item is the gauze window treatment. I was able to pick up the fabric needed for $15. And they are so light and airy. I love them.
I was hoping to have the master bath done so I could share that space as well, but I am being held up by brackets. Meaning, I am not finding the brackets I want to spend my money on. Such a simple, but much needed item before I can call it done.
