Bedroom Makeover Reveal
Hey friends. So many of you are anxiously waiting for the reveal of my (almost finished) bedroom.
Finally we are back in the bedroom after having the carpet installed and cleaned.
For those of you new to this bedroom project you can see all the days prior to this reveal right here:
Day 1 Bedroom Makeover All the before photos are here.
Day 2 Bedroom Makeover Paint day and the start of re-doing the headboard.
Day 3 Bedroom Makeover This post is all about the carpet, completing the headboard, night stands and valances. Along with a peek in my “she shed” and the treasures I found.
Day 4 Bedroom Makeover Project Day Many projects for the room are here. They include a hanging table, botanical prints, cotton stem wreath and much more.
This makeover was so refreshing. I mean I have had a blue and grey room for 10 years now and prior to that a beige room so color was for sure in the palette. This time around I really wanted that modern farmhouse look and I think it has been achieved. Because I love the outdoors I wanted to bring many elements of the outdoors inside. So windows and shutters and botanical’s did all of that and more.
I still have a few things I am doing to finish up the room but time with work has not allowed it. I still need to paint my vanity and I want to get a cute rug at the back end of the bed for more pattern and dimension. But for now it will stay like this until I find the perfect piece.
Alrighty, lets get on with the reveal. But first I will take you back down memory lane with some before photos. You can find many more here.
I think to myself what took so long to redecorate but seriously I did love this room but ya know having something the same for 10 years you kinda get sick of it. Plus, my creative gene in me needs change more often than the normal person, lol. Some of you may like the before better and that is okay, it was a beautiful space.
Hubs doesn’t get it why it needed updating either and thinks anything is fine for 25 plus years but he rolls with it! (thank goodness) lol
Okay, now the bright, warm, refreshing, changed room! See what a difference paint and few updates can make!
Let’s talk about that bedding. I love the quilt! It is from Target and here is the link. Many might say how can you have white with a dog. Well that is pretty much just for show to brighten everything up. lol.
I actually have a blanket underneath it and I just roll the white quilt back at night so she nor us even use it. But it is all machine washable so there should be no problems. The pillow shams have been out of stock for 6 weeks now in king size and are still out of stock so I went with standard size. Not carrying if they were smaller than my king pillows in the back I think they layer nicely. Here are the pillow shams also from Target.
The bed skirt is from good old Amazon. If its not Target its from Amazon my two favorite stores. 🙂
The “together we have it all” pillow I made and the striped grain sack style pillows are from Home Goods and they match the chair cover I redid last week.
How about those shutters…..I love them! They have a blue hew in them which is hard to see in the picture. But I did make them along with the bench at the back of the bed and I painted and distressed them all the same.
All about the lights!
I am in love with the lights on the shutters. They actually come as hard wired lights but hubs stepped in and wired them to an extension cord so they can be easily moved around. I got them from Amazon here and are so perfect for softer lighting and for reading in bed.
All he did was cut the end of an extension cord off and split those wires and connected them to the wires on the light. Wrapped some electrical tape around it and hung them on the shutters the same way you would a wall. Yes, they are totally safe and no different than having them wired in a wall.
We then got a wireless switch which you plug the extension cord into and that plugs into the wall. They also come with a switch for turning on and off. They are so fantastic! We use them for other things in the house like on our light bar above the TV in the living room and at Christmas for the tree lights and such. You can buy them on Amazon here or any hardware store. I hung the switch underneath the night stands so we can easily turn on and off when in bed but still out of sight. We both have our own control on each side. Here it is.
Floating Night Stands
I love these floating nightstands because it is so easy to clean and vacuum under them. They also hold a nice stack of books or whatever you keep at your bedside.
When I asked hubs the other day what he thought of the finished room he did admit he thought it was really nice! YAY. Do ya think that little toolbox decor on his night stand sold him? lol!
I also, love my new sign. I have been wanting to make it for a long time and glad to have had the chance to do it.
Hanging it on the window was perfect. Initially I thought about a wreath up there but then knew I wanted some wreaths on the doors by the TV so I decided to hang it there. Again it looks more grey in the photo but it does have a blue hew to it.
Check out the window while you are here, isn’t it just fabulous with the chippy paint? That was one of my great finds in my “she shed”. lol
Hubs picked up some command hooks to hang them up but they were silver so I just sprayed them white. I really should have looked on Amazon because here they are already white ones. Oh well! The valances I hung real high so much of the window would be showing to bring in more light. They also match the headboard which is such a pretty rustic stain.
No more big dresser!
I love this little cabinet I found. It is perfect for extra storage and looks adorable.
How about them bifold doors I pulled from my she shed! They turned out so cute. Adding the wreaths were the perfect touch! If you remember in the before photo the cords from the TV were hiding behind a crate on the dresser. Well now I have the cords all running behind the bifold door on the right. Such a great way to hide cords when you don’t want to drill into the wall to hide them. I have a little hook back there and the cords just hook on that and run down.
The chair will be going with my dressing table/vanity once that gets done but for now its great to sit down and put on socks. lol
That sign is one of my favorites! I see each each night I go to bed. Many of you have asked for the same one and I am working on them and should be done very soon! Thank you for those orders!
Love this chippy mirror!
The bench at the back of the bed I did make many years ago but it also got a face lift to match the shutters. I always have to keep something at the back of the bed so my fur baby can jump up to go to bed. 🙂 This piece also has great storage.
On the closet doors I did go with drop cloth curtains but I bleached them so they would be white. If you remember in an earlier post I also have them in my office here. But those I kept the natural color. I am in the process of adding a new rod and another panel to the curtains. I will share all that in another post but I love how they turned out!
So there ya go my friends! I hope you enjoyed following along with this makeover and it gave you some inspiration.
My daughter was over the other day and asked what the next project was and it is the hallways upstairs need paint. So I will be slowly doing them as time permits.
But I have many other projects up my sleeve so be sure to keep following along! More tips, tricks and DIY coming soon!
