Good Monday morning friends! I am so excited to finally get over here on the blog with our master makeover!! It was such a fun project to do with the Mr. and I am head over heels with the way it turned out! I hope y’all enjoy seeing this little transformation and please know that I will be sharing how we did almost all of the fun projects in our room!!
Here’s the before:
These photos were taken the very day we received the keys to our home. There was carpet, bluish/gray walls and ceiling with tan trim and a teal door with peel and stick tile on the glass. The very first thing we did in this room was remove the carpet. We didn’t even sleep in here until the carpet was gone. Then we lived with the old pine floors and ugly paint colors for a year. An entire year!!! And I’m so thankful we did, because I cant say that I would have had the vision I did for our room a year ago.
These photos were taken the day we began work. As you can see from looking at the pictures, our 80+ year old pine floors were in rough shape! So the first decision we made was painting the floors. I knew I didn’t want carpet in our room and I really hated the thought of covering up these original floors. So I chose to use Behr porch and floor paint in the same color that I chose to use on the walls and ceiling, Bistro White by Valspar. We also knew that we wanted to add a shiplap wall in our room to add texture and bring in that farmhouse feel. I will share more about how we created the wall in a later post. Once the wall was finished, I painted the walls and ceiling.
Painting the floor was very simple and I chose to do it once the walls were finished so that I didn’t have to worry so much about paint splatters on the floor. Once I had painted the entire room we gave it 3 days to dry before adding our furniture. This was the hard part 😉
The bed I chose is from Target. Its the ‘Bralton Metal Bed’ in a queen, you can find it here. Our bedding is from Ikea, I chose a duvet and duvet cover for our bed and I love it! This cover is the gray ticking duvet in a king. The white blanket at the foot of the bed is a vintage find I picked up for $5 and I’m seriously obsessed!! Our rug has been a huge topic lately and I have to say it is my favorite rug of all times in forever. Haha, but really its seriously gorgeous and it can be found here at Rugsusa.com. I will share a review on it once we’ve had it awhile longer but the detail in this rug makes it a show stopper and although its not a soft shag rug its still very comfortable to walk on and easy to clean!
Our side tables are the Rast dressers from Ikea. We bought them for $35 and then we ‘fancied’ them up a bit to fit our style! I will share more on exactly what we did to them in a later post but it was simple. Some extra wood, stain/glaze and new hardware from Target. I just love how they turned out and its so nice having the extra storage! Our lights were also a bit of a DIY. We purchased the light cords from Ikea, the cages from Amazon and then we built the brackets to hold the lights. Both of these projects were so much fun and they add so much to the space!
One of my favorite pieces that we built for the room is our barn door!! I love the look and feel it gives our room and its so much fun!! I will have all the details on this build soon but if you are looking for some awesome barn door hardware head to The Barn Door Hardware Store, found here. We also added a vintage mantel to our room that I was able to score at an auction for $12!! I know, I just couldn’t pass it up!! I’m still working on figuring out the mantel décor and trying to decide if I should paint it or leave it just the way it is. But for now I’m just loving all of the fun pieces we’ve added to our space.
That’s it for now! As you can see I’ve already added a new DIY piece to the space and I’ve decorated our room with small simple fall touches. I will be blogging much more about our space, the projects we did and more details on some of the products we purchased for this make over!!
