Country House Our Bedroom Reveal

Hi, Friends, 
How are you? I hope that you are doing well and staying upbeat. 
Our room at the new weekend house is done and it is my favorite room so far. 

It's been a long time since we have moved. I forgot what it's like to walk in to a house that someone else has lived it. We did not have to time to give the house a good cleaning before we went to bed. They former owner wasn't sloppy but East Texas has a lot of dirt. It reminds me of West Texas. We spent one night in the house and I immediately began painting our room as soon as I had a cup of coffee. I needed to cover the yellowish/brownish walls. The house was very tan. 
Except for the guest room, I've painted the whole house in Glidden High Endurance Plus Grab-N-Go Interior Paint and Primer in flat white. I like this white. It's reads a little green/gray in certain lights instead of blue, yellow, or pink.  This paint has really good coverage. One coat with some touch ups did the trick. 

I'd finished our room, the living area and kitchen by the end of the first night. I don't know how I did it.

The next weekend, I painted the wood trim around the windows. The trim is the same Glidden but in the eggshell finish. 
Bill hung up new white faux wood blinds from Home Depot. Every window except for the kitchen is the same size. 
White gauzy curtains clipped to nickel curtain rods dress the windows. 
The curtains are from Tuesday Morning. The rods came from Joann's. 

The stained doors and painted trim got bathed in the new white. 

We purchased a queen sized bed because I thought a king would be too big for the room. 
 I loved how it looked in the room but it was not working for us. I don't know if it's the mattress or the box spring but we weren't sleeping well. The mattress was uncomfortable so we kept sinking into each other. After working on the house all day, we needed a good night sleep. I finally called "uncle" and we decided that we had to get a king. We got an unexpected bonus check in December, so we used it to splurge on a Sleep Number Bed for this house. We have one at home too. 

It meant we needed a new headboard as well. This is the Jocelyn from Kirklands. I like it but I wish it sat up a little higher so maybe I can figure something out. 

We needed a dresser or a "Chester Drawers" as my neighbor liked to say. "Ummm, you mean a chest of drawers?"  

I saw this one at our new boutique thrift store. I took a picture and sent it to Bill. He didn't want it. I knew it was the "one" but I passed and kept looking at all my other favorite spots. I went back twice to see if it was still there. Finally, I took Bill to see it and they took off 30% for us. Sold! 
It has a wonderful tung oil smell. 

My little vanity came from the sister store.   

Black pulls cleaned up with Barkeepers Friend. 

The mirror came from a garage sale this summer. 

The rug is from IKEA. We've had it for about a year in our garden room. It was in a high dog and cat traffic area but Bill cleaned it with the power washer. It looks brand new. 
We used to have a gallery wall of paintings in the game room before we hung up a t.v. 
 I hung on to these and they are perfect for a "nature" themed house. 
The chairs hold pillows at night. We had them at home too.

My little night stand was only $35.00 at an antique shop.

The bedding is older from Tuesday Morning. Our sheets were a gift from Sleep Number since they stood me up on the delivery. That was an unexpected gesture. They are comfortable sheets. 
If you recall this house didn't have floors. The stained concrete was worn out.  We love the luxury vinyl plank floor. It's easy to maintain. I'm so glad we went with this color. Our room is right off the living room. 

This room gets the best light in the house. It is so cheerful on sunny Saturday mornings.

I love this room so much that it propelled me to repaint our room at home the same color. 
That is all for now.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful! I love the all white. Everything looks so fresh and clean. Love the bedding! Once you've had a king it's hard to go back to a queen. I'm a light sleeper and I don't want to even know there's someone in the same bed with me, haha. Have a great weekend!

  2. It's beautiful and so calming. Well done!
