Master Bedroom

On to our master bedroom. Here is a pic of the master bedroom when we bought it. The carpet was a hideous blue. We called Empire and got new tan colored carpeting. It cost $500.

So our bedroom is definitely a working progress. I wanted to buy all new bedroom furniture, but I haven't done so yet. The furniture we have now is some old furniture we got from a second hand furniture store. It was cheap, but also very strong. Even though it's an eye sore, it holds a lot of my clothes and is built to last.

We did buy a new bed. Since we already had the Ikea Kullen nightstands, we decided to go with the Ikea Malm bed with storage underneath. Both in the color black-brown. I love the bed, but I don't like how low it is. On top of that, the headboard was simply too plain.

So I decided to get a little DIY going. I was going to upholster our Malm headboard (thanks for Ikea hacks!). Here was the inspiration:

After researching different ways to do it, I went to Jomar and bought the fabric and foam. I bought the nailhead studs from Walmart. Here was my process:

Those lamps are from Ikea by the way (very old peices). And the bedding was actually bought at Big Lots (really cheap). I went with a blue theme because I am totally into the coastal vibe.

Months later, after countless amount of times arguing about space for our things, my husband and I decided that ultimately we would have to buy a wardrobe...The closet was decent size, but not for the both of us. I have way too many clothes and I needed to kick his stuff out of the way. So we ended up going to Ikea (oh, how I LOVE Ikea) and purchasing the Brusali wardrobe. I chose this one because I believed it would match our old furniture as well as our new furniture. Here it is:

Because we bought the wardrobe, we unfortunately had to move the chest. Now it is right next to the dresser. I know, totally tacky...Oh and we flipped the room around.

Ugh, so much going on in our bedroom. I wish I had some pros to come and really make it amazing. But until then I'll keep trying until it fits both of our likings. Here are some more pics.

What do you think? How can I make our master bedroom look better?? Help please!
