Well, those are just the projects that I posted about, but there were lots of other projects I worked on and items that I added to the room. Here are some of the finer details in no particular order.
I bought new lamps for the nightstands. Before, the lamps were boring and brown so I changed them out for something lighter and more stylish. Here see the baskets that I transformed and added to the nightstands for storage. See post here.
I made a new decorative pillow (original post here) for the bed, as well as made new shams. Before they were almost a solid brown and now they are the same fabric as the quilt.
The starburst mirror was transformed from bronze to a rustic gold. Original post here.
I also transformed the circle mirror from a flat brown to a more interesting, rustic gold. See post here.
This dresser was lost on the long wall, but now has been moved and fits perfectly along this shorter wall.
I created some paper boxes for my husband's small items using a little Modge Podge and scrapbook paper. See post and tutorial here.
I added two small shelves to each side of the large window and added a number of personal touches through artwork and photos. Here I display the mats I created using scrapbook paper (post and tutorial here). Plus, I just have to add that I am pretty proud of myself for getting photos in all the frames. I once was notorious for displaying frames without photos but I'm turning over a new leaf.
I made a new quilted table runner for the dresser top. Details here.
I added a variety of different accessories to the bookshelves, including the painted frame I created. See post and tutorial here.
The space above the dresser and TV seemed a bit bare until I added these decorative gold mirrors.
That's about it. Overall, I am thrilled with the results. I am even more thrilled to be done with this project. My Summer Spruce Up series ended up highlighting only two of the four projects that I wanted to accomplish this summer. Time just ran out. School starts in a week and a half so I have a lot of cleaning and organizing to do. I am still going to work on my other spruce up projects, they just might be during fall-time.
Thanks for following along with the transformations to the exterior front and the master bedroom. I hope you were able to learn a new crafting technique or found inspiration for your own home.
