Calling an Audible: Working on the Master
The hubs would appreciate my football reference in the title to the post. I'll have to remember to tell him about it, since he doesn't visit CR very often. But, anyway, I shared my shameful secret of our extra bedroom a couple days ago with the intentions of it being my next project. Well, somehow (possibly between my constant fabric purchases and thrifted goodies), all of my latest finds were lending themselves as updates for our master!
The last time you guys were there, it looked something like this.
Don't get me wrong, I still love this look (for the most part), but it's been this way through all of spring and summer. Temperatures are slowly cooling down here in Memphis, so the change in weather calls for a change in scenery (outdoors and in). So, I'm prepping the master for fall!
If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen some of the changes already.
Cooler weather calls for heavier window treatments, so I used our curtains (actually a Threshold shower curtain from Target) to update our headboard with a little pattern.
Now, I haven't done any real sewing since my 9th grade home economics class, but I, recently, lucked up on a sewing machine and one of the first projects that I attempted was ZIPPER-CLOSURE pillow covers. They turned out pretty great (check them out above). I may have to divulge more details on my sewing machine adventures in a later post. There may have been some crying and swearing. Just a little. Or maybe a lot.
I found two of these vintage chairs (shown below after I ripped off their skirts) while out thrifting a couple weeks ago, and although they show their age, there's something about them that lends to the cozy feeling that I'm going for in the master. I'm thinking they're going to replace the existing bench at the foot of the bed.
There will be many more changes to come (create a new window treatment, update the nightstands, find a rug, rework the gallery wall, maybe find some new lamps, etc.). I'll be back to blog about it all, but you can keep up in real time by following me on IG here.
Are you guys making any changes to your décor in preparation for fall? I'd love to hear all about it!
