Hi there! What a busy week. Yesterday I introduced our kitchen and inspiration for the New Year New Room Refresh and today it’s time for an update of our master bedroom. I’m so glad I’m participating in both these challenges. They are really motivating me to get off the couch. It can be hard to get back into the swing of the things after the holidays!
$100 Room Makeover: Master Bedroom Update
hosted by Erin from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry
Let’s revisit the mood board and resource list and then I’ll share my progress that I peeled myself away from Netflix to complete today. Procrastination at it’s finest!

I brought in two of our rugs that are similar to the inspiration board. The traditional rug was too small downstairs in our living area but looks perfect in our bedroom entry.
I decided to tuck in the black bed skirt and pin up the ends with straight pins underneath so the frame is exposed. What do you think?
One of our faux cowhide rugs is in my vanity area and makes it so cozy! I really like the vibe it adds. I still want to add more natural and modern elements to contrast with all the girliness. A small vanity mirror has been added to my shopping list. 😉
The heavy “too big” drapes finally came down and I installed a simple fabric shade. It’s so much easier getting around the bed now. This side of the room still needs lots of work!
Our chandelier was half DIYed by attaching a capiz shell hanging to a pendant light. The celing lights are so easy to replace in Japan. You just twist the top off and it disconnects the wires and everything! Then just twist the new light fixture in.
My husband’s nightstand is much smaller than my desk, so I boosted a taller lamp up with books to match the height of the desk lamp. The shades match and help with the balance. Next I will focus on artwork and practical styling.
My favorite change this week (and first purchase) is a beautiful woven wall hanging that reminds me of a Moroccan wedding blanket. It was exactly what I had envisioned for this corner of the room.
More projects to complete:
The wall that you face when you walk in will have a DIY project to create a focal point. I’m hoping to have it completed my next Tuesday!
I’m still thinking about if our tv should stay and where should it go. Ugh. TVs…
Plants – a garden for the windowsill and possible wall art
Color – a mix of bedding and textiles from my house (I also have some beautiful silk Kimono fabric!) free
Texture – 100 yen store baskets (I have a DIY up my sleeve for this one!)
Interest – an eclectic mix of decor elements (from “shopping” the house) free
DIY shell chandelier and appropriate bedside lighting
*The two window shades for the room were $80 and won’t be calculated into the makeover budget.
Wall hanging -$30
