Hey All! My master bedroom has always been the storage space for all my leftover furniture. It was the place all the cast offs gathered. Granted, it wasn’t awful, it just wasn’t great. It was blah… It needed something. It needed an accent wall, but not just any accent wall; it needed to be light and airy, while still having some character. That’s when I found these amazing shiplap style (tongue and groove boards) that had tons of texture, without being distracting. It was a match made in heaven and I decided to design my whole room around these yummy boards!
So if you need some interest in any room follow along to see how easy it can be to take your room from “blah” to magazine drool worthy you can head over to The Home Depot’s website to get all the step-by-step details on how I created this gorgeous accent wall!
So let me show you what a HUGE impact these boards can make. Here is what my room looked like before I started this mini makeover.
Like I said, not awful, just really, really boring. Believe it or not this transformation was pretty simple! These Beachwood appearance boards by Slivastar are exactly what the space needed!
Once the boards where up I felt like it was still missing something, but I was hesitant to cover up the wall! So I built a couple of see through frames that did the trick! (Tutorial coming soon!)
Also after installing the Beach-y style boards, I felt that my bed frame also needed to have that airy vibe as well! So I whitewashed my Craigstlist bed to match! (Tutorial Coming Soon.) If you missed my window nook makeover you can read all about how I transformed my lackluster bay window area into a gorgeous feature! You can get all the details here.
Want a cool idea to display a tv? I tricked out a vintage art easel to act as my t.v. stand. Granted, I probably wouldn’t encourage this system in a children’s room, but I trust my husband not to knock it over. 🙂
If I’d had known I could have made such a HUGE difference to this space in just a days work of work I would have done it ages ago! So if you are looking for an “oomph” to an otherwise decorated space then you should definitely check out my tutorial for these beach style boards here.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love it! I especially love the way you re-did the window nook. I have a similar bay window in my bedroom with these hideous blue blinds- thank you for the inspiration!
Bay windows can be tricky! I was stumped by mine for a while too. Good luck!

Your master bedroom is absolutely beautiful, love everything about it. The bed is my favorite .
I was so nervous about painting it, but now it is one of my absolute favorite pieces too! Thanks so much!

Love what you’ve done! It’s yummy. However, I REALLY liked the idea of an artist’s easel for a TV – pinned that idea to use as soon as I can find an easel!!
Thank you! I love it too. I had to modify it a little but it works great! I probably wouldn’t use it in a room with young kids but it’s great for our room!

Beautiful!!! And the easel idea is fantastic!!!
As expected I truly enjoy your makeover. May I ask where did you get your rug. Was that also at Home Depot? Thanks much.
Thanks so much, actually I have had this rug from Target for awhile. But I know that Home Depot has had some of the best price points I have seen for rugs online. I am currently eyeing one from there now!
What a remarkable transformation! I love your bedroom. I’d be hesitant about the easel tv stand, but I love the look. You are very talented.
I totally agree, I would be hesitant to put the easel stand somewhere young kids would have access to it, but in our room I have had zero problems and it is pretty sturdy. Thanks for stopping by!
I really like the headboard/footboard makeover. The white washing gives it a big impact without redoing the entire thing. Nice job!
