Over the past seven weeks I’ve been transforming our bedroom and I’m I’m so happy with how everything turned out! This has been a very exciting (and busy) one room challenge (who am I kidding? They’re always busy) and I can’t wait to show you the end result!
In case you’ve forgotten here’s where we started:
Bam! Now that’s a grown up master bedroom retreat!
Our old IKEA Floro bed has been given a second life with a new cover that was mostly stapled on with only a little sewing for the footboard.
Our new Stikwood feature wall with Reclaimed Weathered Wood planks looks amazing and adds so much character to the room. To finish off the room I also found a new love seat at Structube for the foot of our bed which is a nice place to sit and watch TV or read.
The most complicated project for this makeover was definitely the new storage unit with tilt-out laundry baskets I build for the wall across from our bed. If you remember, this wall was previously occupied by three mismatched ikea bookcases.
But now we have a large and functional storage unit that is a perfect fit for the room.
I added a few more shelves after my last post about this bookcase and managed to get everything we were keeping back in place. Sadly I did say goodbye to my first year psychology textbooks.
Speaking of more storage, our new bedside tables have also added more storage space next to the bed. The open shelves are a nice spot for a couple of extra books and the larger tabletop means the tables look less cluttered.
I just love how these turned out and that they don’t look like an ikea hack. I also love how the stain colour looks next to the feature wall. After trying to stain pine for years this PureBond red oak has definitely spoiled me, it takes colour so beautifully.
Our new art print from Minted hangs between our windows and coordinates perfectly with the all the other colours in the room. The print is by Canadian artist Melanie Severin and is called Mesmerize.
I also bought a new duvet cover – Placid from QE Home | Quilts Etc. – doesn’t it look like it was made for the room? I mean, those are all our colours!
I’m so happy with how this room has turned out. Before this makeover our bedroom was a little neglected, filled with furniture rejected from other rooms or bought for our old apartments which were much smaller. Now we have a comfortable and more organized retreat that is really nice to spend time in.
Thank you so much for following a long with my makeover! I’ll hope you check out all the other amazing guest participant reveals that are taking place today – See them all over on Calling it Home!
