Master Bedroom Tour

Whenever we move into a new home, I feel like if our living space is finished, and our bedroom, I really don't care what the rest of the house looks like. When we moved into our new rental home in Utah back in September, I was quick to get the upstairs living room done, but it took some more time for our bedroom to really feel finished. 

We had bought a new queen size bed when we moved in, but then the end table we bought got damaged in shipping, and then I never got around to ordering a dresser, and the room just sat messy and unfinished for months. This bothered me quite a bit since I work out of my bedroom each day, and working in a messy environment really drives me crazy. 

We got a new mattress a few months ago, and I knew that it was the perfect time to go ahead and get this room just the way we wanted it. Since we were upgrading to a king size bed, we moved our new queen bed to the empty guest room, and then bought this navy bed frame off of Amazon. (Side note: 100% of the furniture that we've bought for this house has come from Amazon, Overstock, Walmart, or Target, and we've had zero problems so far.) 

My favorite space in this room is definitely the dresser. I've been loving the mid-century modern look lately, and I feel like we executed it really well here. The circle mirror was purchased from Target (and about half the price as a similar one from Ikea!), along with the black and white letter board that was only $15! We added a small basket in front of the letter board to be a "catch all" place for headphones, keys, wallets, etc... so that the surfaces in the room would stay clean. On the other side we added a wedding photo, a fake plant (which is my go to decor, always!), and a candle that was in a super cute container. 

Another thing that I'm really proud of are the two baskets to the side of the dresser. Derek has about 1,000 pairs of socks that won't fit in the dresser, and I have tons of sports bras, socks, headbands, and other random things for running that wouldn't fit in the dresser. I found these two small baskets at Target and they fit perfectly in this little corner and contain everything that they need to. They're 90% responsible for the overall cleanliness of our room. Definitely one of those small things that make a big impact in your everyday life. 

The last noteworthy thing would be my nightstand. Derek opted to not have one to save money, and because the only thing on his side of the bed is whatever book he is reading, and the cord for his phone, both of which he stores on the floor, and you can't see it when you walk in the room, so it was out of the way enough to not worry about it. 

This nightstand was incredibly inexpensive from Amazon, and I'm amazed by the quality, and how easy it was to put together. I use the nightstand to store my laptop when I'm not using it, along with my external hard drive, my planner, and a few pens. On top of it I just added a few decor items: two books that Derek gifted me for Christmas, a small fake plant from the Hearth and Hand line at Target, and a gold lamp that still doesn't have a lightbulb, and has never been used.
