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 started with three big windows but little interest.
Chris used a nail gun to apply inexpensive lattice, creating a board-and-batten effect. Read more this project.
The 160-year old windows were badly in need of refinishing. The painters cleaned, restored, and repainted them to look like new.
The two-tone paint scheme creates a bright, happy space with a dark ceiling that recedes, making the ceilings feel taller.
After painting our inexpensive bed frame, we wrapped it in neutral ticking fabric.
Using an upholstery stapler, Chris "gift wraps" the headboard in the fabric.
Our Wrap Star sconces hang over vintage milking stools.
A custom slipcover for this old love seat adds color.
We had a slipcover made for this vintage chair. Roger painted the legs red.

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.

Roger and I decided that board-and-batten would make a nice addition to the look of our master bedroom. This time, I tackled the project myself. Here's how to do it and what you'll need for the project.
I don't believe in ghosts. This is inconvenient, as I'm surrounded by people who do.
According to Clairee Belcher in Steel Magnolias, all gay men have track lighting, and all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve. We're not named Mark, Rick, or Steve, but otherwise I'm afraid we're playing to stereotypes. Because we love track lighting. Here's why.
