Our Budget Friendly Master Bedroom Makeover

When we first moved into our home, finishing our bedroom was my #1 priority.  Our bedroom is not very big so I actually ended up selling our old bed and dresser because it wouldn’t fit in our new room.  Furniture, however, ended up being the least of our troubles as painting, replacing the floors, replacing the light fixtures, gutting and building a new closet, installing new doors, and removing the popcorn ceilings took precedence! The work that went into this makeover was grueling, took many weeks, and many William Singe covers were obliterated in the process.  But we are SO HAPPY with how it turned out! We kept everything very light and minimal, in terms of color and furnishings, to maintain a serene ambiance.  It’s crazy to think this room once housed bright pink walls and a rainbow chandelier (‘before’ picture listed below) and now it’s our peaceful oasis where we eat pizza in bed and binge watch Netflix.  All links for products listed below!

My favorite part about our bedroom is all of the meaningful pieces we hung on our walls – like the signs I made that read ‘Goodnight” in Hmong and “Good Morning” in Cantonese.  Of course our favorite thing, probably in the entire house, is a letter my mom wrote to Tommy which we had blown up and framed for our room.
