I was itching for a change. So I tackled the master bedroom. I love to decorate with odds and ends and small vintage pieces. I have a collection of old mismatched furniture as well that I reused, just moved around. Sharing just one corner, and my personal favorite in the master!
First things first, I gave the dresser a quick makeover. I chose to chalk paint this antique dresser using paint I had on hand. I used Annie Sloan Amsterdam Green to chalk paint it, then finished and sealed it using a dark wax. I did not paint the drawers partly because I didn’t have enough paint, but also I’m kind of digging this two tone paint look. In my opinion, Annie Sloan chalk paint is the best chalk paint to use on a dresser. It goes on thick, and the wax seals it for protection.
This dresser was on the opposite wall in here but I wanted a change and it fit perfectly between our two entry way doors in here. One leads to our laundry room, and the other to the hallway and kitchen.
I also added a peg rail here to display all my vintage pieces. I love that I can swap them out at any time for a new look. I bought some natural wood pegs from Amazon that already had screws in them and just twisted them into the beadboard wall. These made it so easy to create my own DIY peg rail and it’s perfect for any room for hanging cups, tools, and various items on.
I grabbed small pieces from around the house that had some sort of handle on it to hang. I plan on adding a tea light to that mini hanging mason jar.
This cabinet was up in our loft but it fit perfectly here and served as more storage. I continued the peg rail behind the cabinet too just in case I ever move the cabinet.
I found this cabinet at an antique store. It was cheap. Like $20 cheap. Although it’s missing a door, the chippy mustard paint was too cute to pass up!
I originally wanted to hang some vintage photos up above the dresser, but they were simply too large for the space. So I used this long skinny gold mirror I had on hand and it fit perfect!
I can’t wait to show you more of the master bedroom changes! To see more of this room, follow me on Instagram below!
