Grey House: Renovating a 160-year old Victorian.
Mastered bedroom. Before and after.

Paint, lattice, and a nail gun turned this sunny but boring room into a master retreat.

Like many rooms in our home, the master bedroom was unremarkable. Three large windows brought in a lot of light, but the stained floors, uneven ceilings, and ugly baseboard radiators didn't do anything to add charm. We created a relaxing retreat with a simple lattice treatment, color, neutral bedding, and a few pops of color.

The room was bright but dull.

The room started with three big windows but little interest.

Chris applies lattice.

Chris used a nail gun to apply inexpensive lattice, creating a board-and-batten effect. Read more this project.

CertaPro repaints the worn windows.

The 160-year old windows were badly in need of refinishing. The painters cleaned, restored, and repainted them to look like new.

Paint scheme.

The two-tone paint scheme creates a bright, happy space with a dark ceiling that recedes, making the ceilings feel taller.

Chris and Roger apply fabric to the painted headboard.

After painting our inexpensive bed frame, we wrapped it in neutral ticking fabric.

Chris staples the fabric in place.

Using an upholstery stapler, Chris "gift wraps" the headboard in the fabric.

Bedside sconces and a relaxing color palette.

Our Wrap Star sconces hang over vintage milking stools.

How to Clean Velvet Furniture
Velvet fabric can be a bit trickier to clean than other fabrics because, in addition to removing the stain, you must take care to avoid "crushing" the nap of the fiber. Here are some tips to help you successfully remove stains without damaging your beautiful furniture.
