I will never fail to be amazed by the power of molding and decorative woodwork. I’ve always had a soft spot for painted wood paneling and wainscoting, but when you combine them and throw in a beautiful wooden floor, I’m sold.
This master bedroom makeover comes from Jenna Sue, who blogs about her home renovation projects in California. While her bedroom started as a simple space with beige carpeting, it has become a beautiful and cozy escape. I really think all of the incredible wood detailing happening in this space (along with rich, grey paints) makes it a knock-out. I love the way that Jenna added a wide mix of textures (faux sheepskin throws, sisal baskets and wool bedding) to create warmth and add a nice contrast to all the new wooden construction.

The Before: Jenna’s bedroom started out as a standard, new construction space with wall-to-wall carpeting and a major lack of architectural detailing and woodwork.
Jenna made a master plan (very well documented here) that went for a cabin feel with deep colors and lots of soft, fuzzy textures to play up the warmth.
The first major step was to remove the carpeting and install “value grade” oak flooring. (Jenna documented the full floor process here.)
After that, Jenna created a DIY Planked Bedroom Wall that added major drama behind her headboard.
After the planked back wall, Jenna added trim to the master bedroom window to enhance the shape and view. This project cost around $50 and added so much visual value to the space.
The finished After…
