Guest Post from Primitive & Proper…

Today I have Cassie from Primitive & Proper.  She may very well be the queen of furniture makeovers and hosts the most fabulous link parties!  Take it away Cassie…
 
Hello lovely lemondrop Dreams readers!  I am Cassie from Primitive & Proper and I am so excited to be here on Colleen's blog!  I am a huge fan of hers and have been since I saw this bad boy.... remember it?  SWOON!

I was planning to share a fabulous project with you today, but I have had my car break down as well as puking kids this past week, so instead I am going to share my master bedroom design.  Hope you don't mind!  My family has recently moved into a new-to-us home and we are loving it!  So far, we have worked on our guest room, living room, and dining room.  I haven't worked on any rooms until I have had a clear vision of the room and how I want it to look.  I finally have that vision for the master bedroom.  The room is much larger than our old master.  Here are some images of how it looks about now- and keep in mind this is a total BEFORE.  These pictures were taken the week we moved in.

The look I am going for is a blend of "rustic glam" with a dash of mid century modern.  In the nook where you see the dresser now, I would love to get an armoire to house the tv.  Since I am a novice at moodboards, I am just going to put some images together instead and then explain it all! Sorry! :)  And you can just click on the image for the original source.

Benjamin Moore - Gray Owl
 
Ok, so let me explain it all now....
The square of pale gray is a color called "Gray Owl" from Benjamin Moore.  (And of course we will paint all that icky trim white!)  That will most likely be the wall color- I want the room to be soft and serene, but still slightly warm.  The rustic bed is going to be the focal point.  We have the frame and a neighbor who is super handy and has offered to make us a similar planked headboard!  Yay!  We will use our existing nightstands and I plan to keep the mirrors in them and glam them up with some gold leafing!  This is what they look like now, but I want them to look like the nesting tables above.
We have the white parachute bedding from West Elm which will stay, as well as the rustic gym style bench at the foot of our bed.  I would love to move the TV into an awesome French styled armoire- either painted a very worn gray, or given the aged wood treatment.  The mid century white dresser will also stay but move to the right side wall and the big gray gesso mirror will sit above it.
So there you have it!  That is the plan for my master bedroom.... gray and white, rustic warmth, a touch of French, a touch of glam, and a touch of mid century modern!  Hopefully when it's all done it will be the haven my husband and I need!  If you liked what you saw above, feel free to visit my master bedroom pinboard!
Colleen, thank you so much for having me here today to share my plans with your readers!

Thank you Cassie…I am in l-o-v-e with that bed!  Can’t wait to see how it all turns out!!
