Our Master Bedroom Bay Window

Today I thought I would share our master bedroom bay window area.


Our master bedroom sits at the front of our home, over the garage, and this bay window area provides so much light. A few weeks ago I finally finished painting the window trim and baseboards in our bedroom (it took me about 3 years to get around to it!). We had to order new wood blinds (to replace the exact same blinds that were here before) because the sun is so strong that it deteriorates the cord mechanisms. There is a matching blind up in the cathedral ceiling of the bay window, not visible in the photos, that drops down over the demi lune window when we are trying to keep the room cooler. I still need to remove some slats from the bottom of the blinds to shorten them.


This is the turquoise drop leaf table I painted but I just sold it today. The mason jar holds a few cuttings from the standard lilac tree in our front walkway garden. The scent is heavenly. The picture frame is the same aqua as the table base and was $1 at a yard sale. The wing chair here is also temporary. I am looking for a pair of matching chairs or a small loveseat. 


The curtains are a pair I sewed a few years ago using drop cloths. We still have lots to do in our bedroom (curtains for closet, paint our pine night stands and dresser) but I'm happy with how it is looking. I will be sure to share photos as it progresses.

I love that our lilac standard tree is in the garden two stories below the window on the right. On a breezy day like today I can sit here and enjoy the beautiful scent.



I hope you have a great weekend. I am resting after a flare up of kidney stones but I hope to get some projects completed soon.

I'm joining the fun at these blog parties this weekend...

  2. I know it must feel good to make some progress on your bedroom. That bay window area will be great used as a sitting area. You're so lucky to have the extra space for that. Glad that you're feeling better. Kidney stones (I've heard) are so painful!

  4. Your window looks lovely. I have a floor to ceiling (9 feet high)round 3 window bay in our bedroom and would love to dress it up some day. Got to get rid of the wallpaper first

  6. I have that drop leaf table. I did it in reverse, stained bottom white top. Not sure what to do with it though.
