Better late than never! Our moody main bedroom makeover is finally here. This was an extremely challenging time to work on a house project. There were shipping delays, stores were closed and we froze spending in case we needed our savings. Not to mention, I was only living at our house for about 20% of the time.
All of that said, the room is FAR from “done,” but it is full of so much more personality than before and I’ll cheers to that. I find myself walking into the room and just taking a few seconds to soak it all in!
The first thing we did was install the board and batten wall (we didn’t actually use batten). Next, I painted the walls Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams. I ordered throw pillows, brass sconces, curtains, curtain rods, a gorgeous Persian rug and two dressers to use as nightstands.
I can proudly say I made the black and white abstract art above the bed. There is a diy art tutorial in my Instagram highlights if you are curious. It was a super easy DIY, and it turned out SO good.
I am in love with how this room looks so far. It is a complete transformation compared to eight weeks ago. It went from a beige box to a dark, moody, sexy bedroom. I will never get over the power of paint!
We have a long ways to go and a lot more furniture to buy for this room, but progress over perfection! I still want to get furniture for the window nook area, a bigger mirror and a bench for the end of the bed, but we will acquire those items slowly.

Beautiful room! What did you do for the board and not batten? lol
We just used 2x1s directly on the wall instead of any type of full paneling!
This is gorgeous! Could you confirm the black color name?
Love! Where did you purchase your rug?
This one was from RugSource!
