I Hate My Master Bedroom! {Coral & Gray Inspiration}

I have lots of goals for my home this year.  One of them is revamping my master bedroom from the dreary gray and purple into a pretty coral and gray pallet. Get ready for some eye sore pics… It ain’t pretty!

 Let’s take a look at my bedroom now.  I hate it.  I want to burn it all.

Burning is not a realitic plan for many reasons.  We are in a burn ban here in Oklahoma because of the drought, so I might get hauled off to jail for that one.  Also, I gotta reuse and refunk what I have, right?  I wouldn’t be in good Refunking form to not do so.

Am I the only one who just shuts the door on their bedroom and waits to decorate it last?  It gets put on the back burner, I guess because company doesn’t really see it and you can always just shut the door.  We have lived in this home for 6 years and all I have done in here is paint the walls.

My plan includes painting the mismatched nightstands.  Yes, one is red and was for sale in one of my booths, but the shelving that was there previously was snatched up and used as my Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint display. 

I will make some art to fill the blank space above the bed.

Matching glass globe lamps on the nightstands, which I already have from Bargains Galore, I just need to get shades.

I have also already ordered West Elm Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet cover in Slate (purchased new on Ebay for $100.00 for the cover and 4 shams!), I am hunting for new throw pillow covers on Etsy (a few canidates are here and here), and I am hoping to actually open the sewing machine that has been in the box for over a YEAR and make a throw for the end of the bed.

I want to get rid of the vanity.  It is somewhat juvenile to have one for someone over 30 years old, but since our bathroom is an open door style, it’s hard for both my hubs and I to get ready in there.  It was just a quick fix when we moved in, but 6 years later it is still there.

I am hunting for a dresser/media console to paint coral and get rid of the clunky armoire and donate that to a thrift store.  I will keep my $10.00 Walmart mirror and spray paint it bright glossy white.

Here is my mood board I created to keep my design plan on track.

I am hoping to check a few things off this list in the next few weeks.  What do you think about this fun, new color pallet?

On another note, I am headed to Market in Dallas and a meet & greet with CeCe Caldwell for the next few days.  Make sure to keep up with my travels on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

    Have to laugh as I’m getting ready to ADD purple to my bedroom this year — and I’ve already got some coral! Let’s compare notes at the end of the year, shall we?
