Hey there! I’m super excited to share my bedroom makeover with you today. It’s been almost 10 years since me and the hubs built this massive headboard. I painted it and that’s about as far as I got before I ran outta gas. Know what I mean? The most fun thing (to me) about this whole makeover is that nothing matches. It’s a hodgepodge of styles and designs. Follow along with me as I walk you through the changes and new additions. I’m VERY happy with the results and it didn’t cost me a fortune.

Before The Bedroom Makeover
The Wall Color
The very first thing I did was to paint the wall behind the bed. The color of the bed and the wall were too light and adding a darker color to the wall made my headboard stand out. I chose a color that I thought was a darker gray. As it turned out, it has a hint of blue. A little more than I wanted, but after it was all put together, I loved the color. Color changes everything! Then I removed the mirrors from above the nightstands and replaced them with these metal and wood cathedral wall decor. I like the way they compliment the headboard as well as adding height to the short nightstands.

4. Arched Wooden Window Frames (Mine were on clearance, but I found these I like too)
Sliding Barn Door Window Decor
My favorite part of this whole makeover is these wooden sliding barn door window shutters. Curtains are just overrated in my book, but I do need something other than blinds to make me happy. The hubs and I did a quick 1 day DIY project and nixed the curtains. We just love this clean look. CLICK HERE to see how we created them and the hardware we used.

This sweet little vintage chest is a great addition to our bedroom makeover, as well as a springboard for our little Tallulah. (Chihuahua) She’s gonna love the new bedding. What a diva!!! *insert eye roll*
Metallic Painted French Provincial Dresser
Last but not least is the makeover on this vintage French Provincial Dresser in warm silver metallic paint. The name is a bit deceiving as it has a GOLD tone to it. That’s my color! CLICK HERE to see how to add metallic paint to your furniture.
I’m so very pleased with how it all came together. Here’s the proof that you don’t need to buy a new bedroom suit when vintage furniture is so affordable and the paint colors are endless. Thanks so much for joining me in this makeover. I hope this inspires you to try your hand at DIY and consider using what you have. Just a few simple changes can create great results and my bank account is still in the green. 🙂
Until the next project… xo, Do
