When I think of my bedroom makeover for this fall’s One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home, I think of it as a metaphor for a statement I had written in my wedding vows:
“I will always meet you halfway.”
When I made that statement over 11 years ago, I probably didn’t think about the closet my husband and I would be sharing in our first home together. After all, within 6 months of sharing our bedroom closet, I decided to claim it all to myself. The closet was just not big enough for the both of us. My hubby, the nice guy that he is, barely protested the idea. So off his shirts, polos, and suits went…to another bedroom…another room with an even smaller closet.
Two kids later and countless of selfless things he’s done for our cozy family of four, I think it’s only right that I welcomed my hubby’s clothes back into our bedroom. But first, I knew we had to redo the room the proper way.
Make it modern. Make it glam. Make it comfy. Make it functional. Make it all things pretty! Okay, maybe the glam and pretty elements are all of my wishes but hey…I’m willing to share a closet again!

If you’ve been following along since 6 weeks ago, you’ll recall that one of the biggest reasons why I decided to redo our master bedroom was our need for a better closet system.

Doing an overhaul of our old closet was not the only goal though. Creating a cohesive look in the “Plain Jane” room with mismatched furniture was another one.
Reminder of how our small master bedroom used to look:
Now the REVEAL of our Modern Glam Master Bedroom Makeover:
CUSTOM CLOSET AREA
Closet design and installation by Closet POSSIBLE.
Left side is for my hanging clothes.
Middle section of shelves holds both hubby’s clothes as well as mine. The drawers below are all mine! 🙂
Ta Da! All of my hubby’s hanging clothes fit wonderfully in our shared armoire. Closet mission accomplished. Thank you Closet POSSIBLE!
I never thought I would purchase an area rug without patterns but for this room, it works. Layering a fuzzy rug over the shag rug helps to add some interest.
I’m thoroughly in love with our new armoire. Thanks to Closet POSSIBLE‘s sponsorship of this challenge, we paid for the materials “at cost” and the armoire installation was included free of charge.
Getting rid of our old closet was a wise decision. This custom armoire really set the tone for the rest of the room.
PRINT GALLERY AND JEWELRY ORGANIZER AREA
Last year, I made a jewelry pegboard organizer for my daughters’ shared bedroom. I was so tempted to swipe it from their bedroom. The two of them, however, aren’t like my husband. They will NOT be okay with me taking over what’s theirs. 😀
Fortunately, I found these pretty brass-colored jewelry hangers at Home Goods.
Love this framed art print above my hubby’s newly painted dresser. This abstract art print was from Paper Source.
Lately, I’ve been sitting on my new storage ottoman just to gaze at my new armoire. I cannot be the only
weirdo person who does that!
The gold and black art canvas below states:
“Life is better when you are laughing.”
This canvas represents my relationship with my husband pretty well. We enjoy comedy and the best times are often times spent laughing at ourselves. So yes… life is definitely better when you are laughing!
CENTER OF THE ROOM (BED AREA)
One of my proudest DIY projects to date is our newly upholstered headboard. Instead of replacing the King-sized Ikea bed in our room, I decided to revamp it. After several coats of paint (Sherwin Williams White Duck – SW7010) and some upholstery work (stay tuned for tutorial), our old bed was transformed into something much more luxe!
The “M” is the initial for our surname. I think taking my hubby’s surname and adding it to mine was a big step to “meeting halfway.” 🙂
The little plants in our bedroom really help complete this modern glam bedroom. Our room is so much more airy and lively with some real greenery.
Isn’t this necklace holder the coolest thing? Even if I never wear this necklace out … who cares? It’s a display piece.
I’m so lucky to have found the painting set above my bed. The bright blooms in the painting were exactly the pops of color I needed in this otherwise neutral bedroom.
By the way, here’s info on the wall paint used:
Sherwin Williams Super Paint (Paint and Primer in One) // Finish: Flat // Color: Software SW7074
Pillows, pillows, pillows. I love them and can’t get enough of them.
“Together is a wonderful place to be.” Love that pillow from Paper Source. Exactly how we should feel about the relationships we are in.
Our new bedside table from Hobby Lobby is the perfect size for our small bedroom. It also suits the “modern glam” theme really well.
I love pink roses and sentimental box signs.
Here’s the perfect photo to wrap up this incredibly rewarding One Room Challenge makeover!
BIG THANKS to Closet POSSIBLE and my local Sherwin Williams‘ store for their sponsorship of this challenge!
Also, special thanks to Michael Daferede (Daf Photography) for editing and photographing a number of photos featured in today’s blog post.

So … back to what I said in the beginning of this post. This bedroom makeover is like a metaphor of what I said in my wedding vows:
“I will always meet you halfway.”
I feel lucky to be married to my best friend and college sweetheart for over 11 years. Meeting halfway means a lot of things in a marriage. In our case, it can even mean sharing half of a custom closet. 😉

I was wanting to know how I could get a wardrobe like the one you have in your closet
Hi and thank you for visiting this blog. Here’s a link to a post that has all the info on my recent closet makeover: https://beauteefulliving.com/custom-closet-armoire-installation/
Where are your husband’s pants and your dresses?????
Hi Kellie, my dresses are hung (they actually fit the top section). The few longer gowns that I have, I have in a coat closet in another room. My husband keeps his pants in a dresser in front of our bed. Our new closet holds quite a lot. The drawers are deeper than most drawers. Thanks for your question. By the way, I’ve been purging a lot of clothes that I rarely wear over the years. That has been very helpful in keeping things to a minimum.
A gorgeous room (and much bigger than mine 😟)!
Really beautiful. Couple questions, where did you get the ottoman type stool that was by the closet? Also, if the closets are custom, why was the large gap left at the top? I wasn’t sure if there’s a functional reason or if it can’t be installed flush up to the ceiling? Thanks for any help!
Hi Rachel, the ottoman stool is from Home Goods. I saw one in grey the last time I was there. Hopefully they still have this stool there. The gap on the closet will be closed up at a later date. The cabinets only go up to there (manufacturer has cabinet length only up to that size). I left it open thinking that I may use it for storage but since I’m not in need of that space, I will have that area covered one day soon. Thanks for your comment and question :).
Hi Tee. Your room makeover is great. I have a question about the armoire, where are the dresses and pants? The compartments on both sides do not seem long enough to accommodate these items.
Hi Mary, thanks for your feedback! I actually have some dresses hanging in my armoire (may be hard to tell from photo). My dresses tend to land a little above my knee or below. I own very few long gowns. Those I keep in a coat closet downstairs. My pants are folded and fit in the drawers. Thanks for stopping by the blog.
I was wondering where you found the beautiful floral trip above your bed. It is really beautiful.
Hi Rebecca, I found that 3 panel artwork from Ross stores. They may not have exact one available as they have limited stock on things. I’ve updated this post to include some similar artwork that can be found online in case you don’t see similar artwork in stores. Thanks for commenting!
It looks great. Taking a look at your before pictures reminded of my parent’s bedroom when I was growing up! What a great transformation. You have most certainly worked wonders
