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 finale 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.
Before having our little girl make her early arrival, we put the plank walls up, but they’re still needing 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. After that, we sand and then sand some more.
Painting was pretty straightforward. 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 need a smaller brush to get 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 we paint the walls, we add our baseboard. A nail gun is my best friend!
