Romantic-Meets-Industrial Master Bedroom
by Dillon Widder
After salvaging as much as possible from their 1970s A-frame home, including the tongue-and-groove pine, wood trim, and electrical components, Becky McMinn and her husband began giving their master bedroom the industrial chic look the couple craved. Using electric conduit as a curtain rod, Becky fulfilled both the need for a rod long enough to span the width of the wall and her desire to have rustic industrial pieces throughout the room.
The two family pieces being used as bedside tables, a tea table and Singer sewing machine, also help to give the room the industrial feel the couple was looking for. The most impressive addition to this house beside a lake, however, is the two bedside lamps constructed from metal shade pendant lights, a plant hanger bracket and a series of pulleys with an old Woolworth candy weight to add interest and allow variation in height.
After The room’s romantic tone and industrial chic style come together directly in front of the bed where Becky painted and arranged a series of mirrors to frame a decorative plate that reads “Always kiss me goodnight.”
AfterSpending only $870, Becky and her husband have taken the old and made it shine like new without breaking the bank. For more budget decorating ideas, check out this $300 back porch redo, another entry in our Decorating on a Dime Contest.
