This post has honestly been a long time coming! And the reason for that is the foundational mission of Beyond the Clock which is to style with time. I have had a vision for our master bedroom for probably almost 3 years. It took savings and slowly moving things around, upgrading furniture pieces and styling with the perfect details that I gathered throughout the years.
I know a lot of you followed along the way as I put these together and now is the big reveal of the full master bedroom transformation!
The thing is, as much as we would all love to click our heels together and transform a room instantly, one of the best things about styling a room is seeing how things come together. It helps both on a budget perspective, but also as an organic way for things to fit together and evolve as your day to day changes as well.
When I first began getting inspiration for the room, we had an office. Shortly into starting the room, we changed that into a guest room and had to find a place for some of the office furniture. With a bit of rearranging, we brought the bookshelf into our room since we don’t really watch TV there and then moved the TV stand to the living room. It ended up being a great way to refresh all 3 rooms and make good use of the space for how we were using it.
So here is the big reveal, all items and DIY upgraded projects linked. My curtains and rug are family heirlooms but I linked similar ones for you guys.

DIY Bedside Tables
If you have been following along on my instagram stories, you know that I've been working on some nightstands for our bedroom. I'm excited to share with you the complete how to guide for creating one of your own with the good, the bad and they why the heck I did this in the first place.
I've been looking for nightstands for about 6 months. I know that sounds crazy, like why can't I make a freaking decision, but the battle between what I wanted and what I could afford were REAL. At one point, I had found what I thought were the perfect ones on wayfair.com but they were on backorder with no date of when they would be back in stock and I was wanting to transform our $6 straight out of college nightstands STAT!
So one day, I started sketching in my notebook what I thought I would want. It took a few sketches and the design evolved but I eventually ended up with a design, the optimal dimensions for our new bed frame (plus all the stuff I like to keep on my nightstand) and voila!
I then decided to google supplies on Home Depot and Amazon and I priced out a rough order of magnitude of what it would cost to build (including purchasing tools that I didn't have at home) and I was super excited to find out that I could build 2 nightstands just the way I wanted them for the price of 1 that I'd picked out on wayfair. Score!
And so, the DIYing began.
Start the Build
The Main Compartment
This project wasn't easy since it was my first time doing anything like this. I learned A LOT along the way but I am so excited with how it turned out. My rustic mid-century modern look is perfect next to the new bed frame. Stay tuned for the complete bedroom remodel, I'm excited to share it with you soon. Just a few more finishing touches left.
Thanks so much for being a part of this fun journey.
