We are about to close on our new home this weekend, and I just had to take a look back at the photos I took of our master bedroom right before we moved out of our sweet little fixer upper house.

Since it’s about to get chaotic with unpacking boxes & such, today really is the perfect time to share some photos of when my life was all put together. Haha!

Our bedroom was soooo dreamy, and pretty… and light and airy.

It was seriously so romantic. I mean, that artwork right there: it’s a love letter my husband wrote me while he was away training with the Marines for over a year. I actually did a tutorial on how I made this artwork form our letters to each other HERE.

And then we had this tufted headboard I DIY’ed (HERE) I think  it turned out pretty good considering I did it while being 9 month’s pregnant with Jason.

Even though we lived in a builder basic, I really wanted to bring some chippy, old world antique pieces into the space.

And honestly, our furniture was either built by us, or given to us second hand. Except these chairs- I got those at Habitat for Humanity for a steal & repurposed them.

I’m sure I will use most of these pieces in our master bedroom again in next house.

Except for this fireplace.

Oh man. When we were moving all our stuff out, this DIY antique fireplace (tutorial HERE) didn’t survive being dismantled while being unanchored from the wall. I’m so sad. But I will just have to make another one I guess.

Originally I was going to work in double barn doors in this space, but it ended up being too complicated with the layout. You can bet that my next room will have some barn doors!

The pretty door arches were some antique pediment I built for above every doorway in our house. You can see the tutorial for them HERE.

And our pallet bed isn’t going to make it into the next house either. That thing was a tank you guys.

My husband literally built this baby inside our room, so when we moved, he had to un-screw it board by board.

Isn’t this full sized mirror just darling? My mom got it for me from Kirklands, I believe. It’s honestly the thing I am most scared of getting broken during the move. #pleasedontbreak

The two doors on either side of our dresser were to the closet and the bathroom.

I know you are all thinking it, so I will just come out and say it: I am a jar hoarder.

I love this space from this angle. So much chippy paint goodness. If we ever did shiplap, you can bet I am going to want the rough type.

I’m just not into pristine, smooth surfaces.

This firewood box is one of my favorite parts of the room. It just made the space seem so rustic & collected. I loved it!

In my collection of bottles & jars, many of them are real antique pieces. Others are from TJ Maxx & Homegoods.

You can bet I used pallets to build this fireplace. Pallets and lots of reclaimed wood.

See how I made this “Fresh Cut Flowers” sign in my DIY post HERE.

Don’t get me wrong, it looks great now, but I want to change up things a bit.

We only had one window in this room, so we made sure to use sheers for the curtains & leave the blinds open during the day to let in sunlight.

This piece is one of my letter’s to my husband. So I have one art piece featuring parts of his letters, and one featuring mine.

I have like three oversized clocks in my house & I think I should add more! I love me some clocks.

This space was so bland and builder basic when we moved in, and I think we did a great job of transforming it to be something special.

That’s it for now. I can’t wait to start working on this next builder basic of ours. It’s pretty outdated, but I think we will make it pretty amazing.

    I LOVE your bedroom. There isn’t anything I don’t like about it. I love the the door arches, fireplace, clock and picture frames. I love all of the different textures around the room. In this nuetral bedroom is just a soft touch of color with the jars and the nightstand lamps. But very special are the love letters posted on the walls. I love that you mostly made or got 2nd hand the furniture.
    You are so kind to post so many DIY instructions. Did I say I loved your room? Ah, many times. Signing up for your blog as I just found you. Very excited to see more…
