Master Bedroom - Junktastic!

OK so my old master bedroom was hand me down furniture I had painted to match & I liked it, but it wasn't me.

Thankfully Pinterest inspired me in a big way with a project I could easily duplicate with absolutely $0.

So off I sent Jade to the concrete plant to pick up old beat up pallets & then to the car wash to clean them.

This is why he is the man....

I purchased my night stand, an old tool box, at an auction for around $30.  It has a ton of storage and it's totally my style.  Anything rusty, metal, and manly and I'm digging on it.

I scored this fabulous dresser at an auction for $85.  It was painted black on 2 sides and turquoise on the other - it was bizarre.  The inside was FILLED with mud dobbers.  After major cleaning - I painted this baby silver, and oh my I am glad I did because it's amazing!

Seriously aren't you in love with this?  It's a very heavy, old piece - what a steal!

And see that - it has a secret drawer in the middle!

Trudie got a new dog bed area & yes that sweet painting was made by yours truly.

My desk area got a small makeover.  I want to find an old metal chair instead of the turquoise floral one.  It's on my to find list.

The little metal cubbies Mom gifted and they are amazing & store a lot of jewelry making stuff!

I now feel like our master bedroom is finally a reflection of our personality and the rest of the house - hooray!
