First of all THANK YOU ALL so much for your sweet comments on our master bedroom! In case you missed it, you can find our master bedroom reveal here. Today I am sharing all of the sources of our bedroom.
ONE // The wall color is the same throughout the house. We decided to do something light because it makes everything looks so much brighter and cleaner and since we did dark floors I wanted that contrast. We chose Tear Drop from Pittsburg Paints. It's a very soft almost white gray.
TWO // Our floors are also ones we chose for almost our entire house. They are wood grain tile. We LOVE our floors, they look great and we don't have to worry about spills or scratches. We purchased them at Home Depot: MARAZZI-Montagna-Saddle

Finally our last bedroom reveal in our new home. This is one we put the most work and money into because it is a big room with tons of space and a little office nook to the side. We love our new large master bedroom and vaulted ceilings. The ceilings and our new Hunter fan were just meant to be. I only want to share before and after photos today and I will have another follow up post with all of the details later this week because that will take some time to put together and all I want right now is to show you the results. I'm pretty sure that's what you want to see too. So here are the before and afters!
The BIGGEST changes in our room are the ceiling, floors, and walls. We had all of our popcorn removed from the ceilings, retextured ceilings and walls, and got new wood grain tile flooring. Levi is currently in our room but we plan to move him in with Josh soon.
I love that we have this space next to our bedroom which we have turned into our office nook. As you can see we've still got a couple minor details to finish like wall plugs and the closet doors but all in good time.
and here are a few more photos...a
Make sure to check back later this week for a more detailed post with sources. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and I will reply either below your comment or on my next post.

I looked online for shelves to buy but didn't find anything affordable and I didn't even think to ask my husband to build some because he already has a lot going on but when I mentioned I was just going to buy some cheap IKEA shelves, he told me he would build me some. We both searched online and then I saw West Elm post this photo on instagram...
I showed it to Omar and he told me he could build something like this for me so we drew a rough draft and measured our wall and compared it to west elm's version. We decided to make ours a bit taller and wider. Here are our original plans. I don't really have a full tutorial for you all but I'm gonna share as many details as possible in case you want to build these yourself. Here are our plans...
Our shelves ended up being 60in wide and 70in tall. Hope the picture explains itself, if not please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail. We used pine wood: 1x12 for the shelves and 1x3 for the ladder or the long ends in the the front and back. Mu husband cut the tops, bottoms and notches (which I will explain a little more below) to a 10 degree angle.
First he measured everything and cut our boards to the length we would need them. Instead of having ladder boards like west elm to hold every shelf my husband built little notches where the shelves could fit into. He used his miter saw and cut about 1/4in into the boards at the same 10 degree angle as the bottom and tops.
When we assembled them he used his wooden mallet to get them into place and then he nailed the whole thing down. Before assembly he sanded and stained all of the shelves with Minwax® Special Walnut 224 Stain and then I painted the ladder (front and back sections) parts BEHR Graphic Charcoal in a satin finish. Love our new shelves! They fit perfectly along the wall in our office nook.
Here's a comparison of West Elm's shelves and our DIY version. Not exactly alike but at a fraction of the cost and the fact that my husband built them makes ours 100 times better for me ;)
I will be posting our master bedroom reveal next week!
Let me know if you decide to try to build these yourself. They aren't too difficult to make.
