Truth be told, the master bedroom is always the last room I decorate. I’m not sure why, but it was time for a little refresh and some new bedding. I love vintage farmhouse style so I kept that style going into the master bedroom. I moved some things around, completed a quick furniture DIY, took my own advice to create a cozy corner, and got some new bedding! I hope my effortless farmhouse bedroom decorating ideas are inspiring and encouraging!
Simple modern farmhouse wreath
I created this modern farmhouse wreath because I’ve been dying to make one of these beauties myself. There are some lovely designs all over Pinterest and they looked easy enough, so I tried making one too. I found the huge 23 inch embroidery hoop at a craft store because all the huge brass rings were sold out everywhere else. I didn’t want to pay for shipping so I got a wood ring instead.
I could have used wire to attach the stems, but I just used green embroidery floss and it worked great. I also considered spray painting the wood a gold color to coordinate with my brushed gold accents all over the house, but kept the natural wood – it’s cozier. This wreath is so fun, pretty, easy to change, light-weight, and huge – it’s such a great statement piece.
Easy DIY furniture makeover
My first project was to update our nightstands and dresser, just a bit. Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the furniture and I still enjoy it’s look very much, but after ten years, I wanted a little change – so I spray painted the hardware and I wish I would have done it sooner. I also looked into changing out the legs, but it was too expensive. I also looked into installing new hardware, but my idea fell through (however, I’m keeping an eye out for just the right piece of furniture to makeover and try my idea).
Create a cozy corner in the bedroom
My husband’s great grandpa’s green leather chair is such a beauty. It has beautiful lines with nail head details, and it’s in amazing condition. The ottoman makes it an idea chair for reading or doing a devotional. So, a new corner library was created and I love the serenity of it. Just out the window is a lovely view of fields and landscape – there’s also a curvy road, but it’s not a busy road. Some people have questioned why the books are facing backwards and that’s just because I love the neutral look and the colors of worn pages so much more than I like book spines. Now, if I had a huge collection of old books, I’d definitely turn out the spines.
Master bedroom farmhouse bedding
I have been on the lookout for new bedding for a while, but it’s not an easy task. My husband is particular about sheets, blankets, and bedding. Keeping his preferences at the forefront of my mind, I ended up selecting a comforter. I don’t think we’ve owned a comforter for over 15 years, but this one is Hearth & Hand, and looks like linen.
I love the neutral grey, the texture, and tiny cross details. I think it will be wonderful as we transition into spring because it feels so light over me. During these colder months, I’ll add a thin quilt for extra warmth and weight. I can even add some springy throw pillows to brighten it up. With a neutral base, it’s so much easier to swap out blankets and pillows with each season.
Tip: Once you place a new comforter or duvet cover onto your bed, get an extension cord for your iron and iron out the wrinkles right on your bed. Be sure to keep the iron moving and to use the correct temperature for the type of fabric.
Effortless farmhouse bedroom decorating ideas
Our bedroom refresh can’t go without the mention of a few new items I scored from Target. The best part about three of these items is that I will be using them around the house to refresh other areas. Who doesn’t love shopping their house to change up a look? Here’s a list of my new items from Target:
