Master Bedroom makeover

Do you all remember when I entered this contest and came in first loser ? Well, Mandi just finished the winner's bedroom makeover and I am dying at all the cool stuff she did. Go check it out here . And I must say, I am super happy for Jessica and totally got over my jealousy. So congratulations Jessica! Enjoy your new room, it's amazing!

After the contest, I knew for sure I wanted to paint my furniture. I thought for sure that would help update my room. So let me show you some before pictures to refresh your memory.

Here's the entry to our bedroom before.

And our bedroom furniture

We didn't do much to the chair in the corner. We did hang our Kari Michael print and changed out the lamp and shade. Both from a garage sale.

And here's our bedroom furniture. I think it makes a huge difference!

I had my husband sand all of the furniture and then I primed and painted it with Krylon spray paint. I used the black primer and then a zillion and a half cans of the Krylon leather spray paint on the furniture.

I found that spray painting the furniture was so much faster and easier, but not more economical. I spent a TON on spray paint!

Here is what we did to the room to update it:

Not quite sure why this image is so small, but you get the idea of the huge before and after change.
So what do you think? I know there is still more work to be done, but this was a great, cheap easy fix for us!

Sehr wunderbar! I would hang the pictures evenly over the bed, but: it is a really nice transformation!

You did a great job! Your right, it does take a lot more spray paint but I use it sometimes because it is so much faster.
