And without further ado here are the pictures of our newly redone master bedroom.
To start, here's a panoramic view...
Let's start with where the bed used to be and work our way around with before and after pictures of the details.

In the corner where we had the floor mirror, we added a new Ikea chair to create a little reading and relaxing nook. I also moved my jewelry armorer to that corner. As you can see, I also replaced the heavy drapers with sheer white panels -- this time two panels on each window. I love how airy and romantic they make the room. I did use the same curtain rods, but took down the tie backs.
The chair I purchased at Ikea for $99 and added the upholstery nails so it would match the upholstered headboard I made. Here's a picture of what it looked like before:

That floor lamp is actually the same one that we already had the room. I just moved it and replaced the shade with an upside down drum shade that I also picked up at Ikea for $9.99. I did not intend to use the lamp shade this way, but it worked out and I like the look so why not? You can see the original lamp in this picture below:

Here's a closer look at the DIY drop cloth upholstered headboard that my sister and I made for just over $150. The man who delivered the bed couldn't understand why the company shipped the bed and the headboard separately. His jaw dropped when I told him how we made it to which he replied, "That exact thing sells for $1500."

I also made a linen-looking bed skirt out of left over drop cloth. It looks very similar to the $200+ Pottery Barn version. Click here for the 5 minute no sew bed skirt tutorial.
The throw pillows on the bed and on the reading chair out of the extremely large pillow shams that came with the comforter. Click here for the DIY throw pillow tutorial.
On either side of the bed I have table lamps -- both of which I made out of glass jars I purchased at TJ Maxx and lamp kits.

On the wall immediately to the left of the bedroom door are our two un-Godly small reach and grab closets. They're also newly organized and are much more functional now. Check this post out for some small closet organization ideas and to find out exactly how I made that space much more functional.
And here's one last look at our new grey and white master bedroom makeover.
I made over our master bedroom on a budget turning many of the project into DIYers. By far the largest purchase, aside from our new Sleep Number bed, was the bedding which I scored on sale for half price -- at $200. Click here for more details on how I kept this master bedroom on a budget of less than $800 - including new lamps, a new king size headboard, paint, all new bedding, a reading chair, and accessories.
