Lyric Wall and the Master Retreat...

So, when we were searching for our new house one of my biggest "must haves" was a master suite that was a true retreat.  I love our master!  It is very large, has a lovely on-suite with jetted tub and walk in shower with a walk in closet.  One of the things I love most is the vaulted ceiling and I wanted to celebrate it.  That's when I thought about doing the lyrics to our song "Such Great Heights" by Iron and Wine.  Originally we had it on Canvas' behind our bed but in the large space they looked to tiny, enter the lyric wall...

First, I used a projector to get the lyrics up on the wall and penciled them in. 

Then I came in with a paint brush and filled it in.  It took about four hours but was totally worth it!

Because the walk-in closet is off of the bathroom and it's spacious enough to keep all of our clothing in, the bedroom was feeling a little too empty so we found a great purpose for the rest of the room: Office/ Library.  Since the house doesn't have a space for one it was a great use for the space and provides the perfect retreat for reading and studying in peace.  Hence the reading corner in the bay window:

Someday a coordinating chair more of the Mr's style will keep this baby company.

I wasn't too happy that the lyric wall wasn't the one you could see looking into the room because of the placement of the on-suite door and plugins but the large mirror I placed on the opposite wall makes sure the lyrics are still visible as you walk into the room.

 We love it!
