"M" is for Master Bedroom Makeover

Master bedroom makeover in the 1740 saltbox.

We've lived in this house for one year now and the master bedroom makeover is complete.

This before picture is taken from the MLS listing posted online and is exactly how the room was when we saw the house for the first time.

And now.  I guess I like things simple.

The matching nightstands (with missing vertical side moulding) are from a friend and date back to 1850. 

The mirrors above are inexpensive beveled rectangles with a wreath of greenery in front hung by burlap.

The full length wall mirror framed in wood is a DIY project, details here.  The door on the right leads into the dining room.
Having all these mirrors brings a lot of light into the room.

There is a working fireplace although we have yet to make a fire in our bedroom.  The fireplace is one of the 3 which all lead to a center chimney.

The door on the right leads to the front foyer and living room.

And this view above is from the dining room looking into the bedroom. 

Below are a few other rooms I've made over so far in our home:

Dining room with exposed wood beams.
