I can’t believe I’m actually getting to write this post. Seriously! It has been over a year since we started our farmhouse master bedroom makeover, and because of that I’m sure that most of you have no idea what I’m talking about.

You see we were ambitious and ready to have this project done before our new baby would enter the scene so we could have her delivered at home like her siblings, but she wasn’t having it.  Right as we were about ¾ of the way completed, our little bundle came 6 weeks early and required 3 weeks in the NICU.  Yeah, that’ll throw you off a bit.

Not only did put a kink in our plans, but the hospital bills kept us from being able to put much funds in to completing it.  My whole family and I busted our behinds to make those payments and get rid of that bill within a year, which meant a whole lot of furniture was being done.  whew!

Here’s a look at the awful before of our room.

As a refresher, you can read the beginnings of our project with the floors, and then the ceiling in past posts.

Before we had our little girl come, we had gotten the plank walls up, but they needed finishing.

We had taken luan and had Home Depot cut it into 6″ strips for us (FREE!), and then nailed them up, spacing them using a scrap piece of luan.

See the wallpaper peeking out?  So thankful I didn’t have to peel it off again. Once the planks were up, we just had to hit each nail haid with a bit of wood filler, and then sand.

Painting was pretty straighforward. I wanted a mix of white in creams in the room, so I just a lovely shade by Glidden called Swan Wing.

Since the planks had that space in between, I needed a smaller brush to get a good coat in the gaps.

Doesn’t a room always look glamorous while in the works?  I can’t tell you how cluttered and messy feeling my house was for waaay to long.  That alone can unnerve you!

I love the soft white tones and can see how everything will be coming together…eep!!

What a transformation already!  After the walls were painted, we added our baseboard.  A nail gun is my best friend!

    First I have to say Wow Wow Wow! Being pregnant can become very delicate sometimes along with harmones going crazy, I applaud you in taking that on!! The walls, ceiling and floor are beautiful!! Love the plank walls!! I am very anxious to see how you dress the room. The chandelier is fabulous so it really ignites the can’t wait to see senses. Happy Decorating!!

      Thank you! Yes, we had a do or die choice as far as getting it done since tearing up the carpet and left with that residue. We just decided to go for it in hopes to have our new baby delivered at home like our others. Ah well, she came early and we love having her!

    This is amazing! Can you please share which paneling you selected at Home Depot for the walls and ceiling? Are they the same or different?
    Thank you!

      Thank you for the compliment, Laura. Both were made by using luan cut in to different widths. Home Depot will even cut it for you to make transportation and installation easier. 😉
