Master Bedroom Before

We recently bought our new home. It happens to be a log home that I was a little scared of at first. I usually decorate with a vintage, 'kitschy' retro flair.

This room being on the second floor does not have log walls.

The room is quite large and has vast ceilings - I had to get rid of the white walls and make it more cozy.

The room started with 2 layers of Southwestern border. Once removed I moved on to the cedar crown trim...

Now, we've had a few yellowjackets in our bedroom, they haven't bothered me enough to worry, they typically die off in the winter. Well, me 10 ft up the ladder trying to pry off a stubborn piece of molding and found the hive! After fumigating, all were dead with hundreds of them to show.

I primed with a dark gray and the painting went great. This is two coats of Behr eggshell.

I am still on the hunt for perfect window treatments, any suggestions would be great. Otherwise, I love how the mbr came out. It has such a dreamy feel now.

Renate's comment: Gorgeous makeover, Roxanne! I love the new, blue-"orange" complementary color scheme. How brave of you to go for such a deep color. You've really created magic!

I also like how you've anchored that sofa with a little coffee table. Beautiful room - thank you for sharing your log home makeover with us!

That was plucky!

Good on you for taking the plunge ... I find it always takes a lot of courage to paint walls a dark color. But it often looks great, and your mbr is proof!

Lovely room! I like how the blue walls help to integrate the elegant bed and the raw ceiling.

Great color!

I really love the combination of dark wood, dark blue walls & white bedlinen. Very classy. The room looks very romantic!
