Mardi Gras colors and new furniture take this bedroom from bland to beautiful.
Lee Snijders, Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge bring the beauty of New Orleans to a California master bedroom here's how:
Bedding and Drapery — $390
- A new coverlet in rich shades of burgundy, eggplant and gold makes the bed become the focal point in the formerly white room. Wine-colored panels bring color to the windows. (window panels: Target — Home, 068030837)
Furniture — $357
- Snijders builds a chaise out of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and recycles sofa cushions for the seating. It's paired with a new table to create a cozy reading spot. (fabric: Kashcool; table: Advanced Liquidators)
- Two new side tables bring balance to the bed area. (side tables: Linens 'n Things — 2364511971 )
Headboard — $100
- Instead of a traditional headboard, Baltzer creates a wall display behind the bed out of reproduction ceiling tins. She paints them brown and brings out the details with copper spray paint and tinted glaze. The panels are adhered directly to the wall and framed with molding for a finished look.
Accessories and Lighting — $85
- Snijders creates art out of handmade paper and foam core board. He tears the paper into strips, crumples it up then smooths it out onto foam core using spray adhesive to hold the layers together. (paper: Soolip)
- Burbridge distresses a pair of brackets with paint to give them a New Orleans look. He first sprays the brackets with a flat black paint then dabs on rubber cement and lets it dry before adding more painted details. After the paint dries he removes the cement to show the black undercoat, which creates a faux distressed effect.
- Matching table lamps are set on the bedside tables. (lamps: Target — 074000202; beaded lampshades: Ross — 406007113710, makita)
- Burbridge turns an unfinished nook into a coffee bar with the addition of a few shelves and coffee-making essentials, including a small refrigerator hidden behind a fabric skirt. He upholsters the top shelf before installation; once in place he adds a piece of tempered glass to protect the surface. (mugs: Ross — 400001069400, Puinot mug 14 oz)
Paint and Supplies — $65
- Two walls, including the coffee-bar nook, are painted golden yellow for a perfect complement to the regal colors. (wall paint: Mark's Paint Store — Benjamin Moore, 2165-40 Dark Beige)
Project Total — $997
