Using exterior siding in your bedroom can add an amazing amount of beauty and charm. Whether it’s actual reclaimed wood, new wood with a faux finish or faux wood, you can’t go wrong with this added texture and warmth. I’ll show you how to use exterior siding in your bedroom so that you can create a romantic and inviting space.
Yep, this is what it used to look like – my master bedroom. Actually, this isn’t the worst it’s ever looked, as it used to be without sheetrock and insulation and had a ton more stuff stored in it!
I’ve mentioned before that we’ve been remodeling our house for over a year and a half now. We spent much of that time getting it into proper working condition (replacing sheetrock, adding insulation, plumbing, electrical, etc.), as well as moving some walls around to make it more functional for this mama.
The great thing about stripping a home down to the bare bones, is that you get to rebuild it exactly how you want to. The bad part is, especially if using your own hands and those of a few generous volunteers, it feels very overwhelming. There are so many details that go into building a house, you never feel like you’re going to get to the end. In fact, we’re not to the end. Yet.
However, we have turned this house into a home and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ll be sharing different thing that we did, but I want to start with my master bedroom. It’s my favorite. It has a story, and one day I’ll share that. But for now, enjoy the transformation pics!
Tape, floating, texture and priming.
A coat of Alabaster paint from Sherwin Williams (my recommended paint brand, btw).
Siding from the home of our precious friends (DIY on that later). And floors – woohoo!
Finished product. Or as I like to call it, heaven on earth.
The room isn’t 100% finished, but it’s still my favorite room in the house! I have a few surprises still coming your way that I think you’re gonna love, and will make this room pure perfection.
I’d love to know what you think! Please leave your comments and questions below.
Peace & Love,
