I told my husband I wanted to redo our master bedroom and he about had a heart attack.  We have kind of lived in a construction zone with the mini remodel of our bathroom and moving the laundry room upstairs.  So in order to preserve our marriage and my husband’s sanity I decided to just “freshen it up” a bit. This is totally different than redoing it right?

First up…attack the window treatments.  When we moved in this house 2 1/2 years ago I threw up one old green panel that I got from Big Lots about 5 years ago “just for the time being.”  Well you know how that goes…DSC05814 We also have had the same comforter for that amount of time too.  So I got a new comforter, more on that later. Since I still like the color palette, I am keeping it the same to use some of the decorations and pillows. That should help keep this a low budget redo “freshening up” project.

The tie back rod was here when we moved in as well.  The orange ball on the end doesn’t match a single thing in the room.  I think I might take them down completely as I am not a tie back kind of girl.  I like the flowy feeling of the curtains just hanging there.DSC05816Since the window treatments always bugged me it was a simple change to redo “freshen up” the space.

I installed inexpensive matchstick roman shades from Home Depot for $20 each.  It really lets in a lot of light but creates a nice warm glow when the sun peeks in. Then I hung new panels from Target (Light Blue Chesapeake in the Target Home Brand) for $7.99 each.  I thought that was a steal for 84” panels.  They are not lined or anything but the color was perfect and it created the look I wanted.DSC05825Here is the inspiration fabric which is where the color palette originated from.

It is a Waverly print called Harmony Spa.  Isn’t that the perfect inspiration name for a bedroom?

Stay tuned for more of my master bedroom redo…ahem…freshening up.
