Project Apartment Makeover: the master bedroom and bath

Here is my sister's bedroom and bathroom pictures. I forgot to take before pics of the bathroom, and the blue/grey dresser you will see used to be an unfinished dresser but my sister painted it and changed out the knobs before we got there so we had one less project to try and accomplish during our stay...






After:
A 'C' to not only represnt my sister's name but also for the name she and her fiance will be sharing in a year was added for extra hight and drama above the bed. We placed some decorative scrapbook paper in her frames from Ikea until she has pictures to place in there. The lamp bases were bought at HomeGoods and spray painted white (these were the bases the shades in the living room came from) and the new shades are from Target, they are such a pretty light grey with a blue undertone... perfect for this room...



She bought some really pretty fabric to recover the pillows but will be doing that later on...

New accessories for the nightstands help to brighten up the room and bring in a little glamour...




The brown dresser in the before got a coat of black paint and new antique brass hardware. The blue dresser has glass knobs on it. A larger gold mirror bought at Ikea helps to reflect more light from the window and make the space feel larger. Also new accessories help this side of the room feel more light and bright...




More scrapbook paper was added to these frames as well...



Here is the most before picture I have of the bathroom. Pretend the rugs are not there, they were using towels before hand:


We added a lightweight window curtain for added texture and drama to the bathroom as well as to soften it. 2 new rugs were purchased in browns, blues, and creams instead of the towels they were using on the floor...


Some cute artwork from Hobby Lobby adds some whimsy to the space and being right next to the mirror gives the illusion of a grouping of 4...



And there you have it! We also redid the guest bathroom but I forgot to take pics of that one all together. It went from bland and beige to frenchy and whimsical. We added a black and white toile shower curtain from target, a green and white rug, and decorated the walls with her wine decor (a painting of some wine and wine glasses, a shadowbox frame of some corks, and a wine label plaque).



It was a busy weekend but we finished what we wanted to. Her fiance was a huge help and occupied the kids while we painted and decorated... I think he needed a vacation after we left!

Both of them love it and that was the whole objective!



I'll share the tutorials for the projects we did next week...

WOW!!! What a fabulous makeover. :) I love her chocolate brown walls, and the artwork you all have added is fabulous. This makes me even more excited about the Hobby Lobby that's coming to my town. ;) I'm hosting a "Show Me the Progress" party right now, and this post would be perfect! (The party is up under Wednesday's post if you'd like to link up) :)

The changes you made to your sister's room make such a difference. I particularly like the artwork that you created with scrapbook paper.

You did a great job! I love the blue of that dresser in the corner.
