Bedroom makeover Before & After

Hi, Everyone! Due to having half of my family in a wedding this weekend and moving back into our home the past couple of days, I have not had a lot of time to work on projects. So, instead, for DIY Monday, I am posting our bedroom remodel we did a few months back. I promise many more projects are in the works. Enjoy!

We love how it turned out! It used to be, just a room to sleep in, now it’s a room to be in!

    Gorgeous room! I absolutely love the color, do you mind sharing? Just discovered your blog, but when I was reading your ‘about me’ section it was kind of freaky (but in a good way) because it sounded just like me! ;) 2 boys, love thrifting, makeovers & design! Love finding like minded people on here! ;)

      Thanks, Jesse! It sounds like we do have a lot in common! The color on the walls: the light- valspar seashell gray (4003-1A) & the dark- valspar rugged seude (4003-2B). Both at Lowes. Nice to meet you and I’ll have to check out your blog :)

      Thanks! I have a serious chandelier obsession! I would put one in every room if I could get away with it!! The boys in my house would definitely object ;)

      Thanks so much! We made a promise to one another (my husband and I) that when we bought this house we would renovate the master first, because it seems like in most cases it gets left for last or not at all. Now we have the rest of the house to tackle. One room at a time :) Thanks for reading :)

      Thank you so much! This is actually the only room, besides the nursery that we have completed. Room by room we go :)

        Well you are doing it the right way. I think it is important to do thing right the first time and that takes time and money! Good luck.

        Thanks, time is the major issue right now. We are doing the kitchen and I don’t think we’ll get it done until next year! Oh, well, at least the bedroom is pretty to escape to :)

    I love the Chevron pillow cases. Where are they from?

      I made the ones on the bed with fabric from Hobby Lobby, but I also purchased some just like them from Festive Home Decor on Etsy. They were sold as pillow covers, 2 for $30 20×20 size. I already had pillow inserts for the ones in my living room. I think she still has these for sale. xxx Kristin

    Amazing transformation! I love neutrals and grey is such a striking neutral. You could change this up at any time just by adding a single colour in a pillow, throw and artwork. Stunning.

      I purchased the bedding at Bedroom Expressions about 5 years ago. I wanted to find something comparable to Restoration Hardware just not as expensive. xo Kristin

    There’s nothing like crisps lines, soft greys and metallics to modernize a room. So chic! :)

    Hi Kristin,

    I was wondering if you had refurbished your own furniture or if you bought new? Also, did you make your own headboard or did you buy it? I was just wondering because I would like to remodel our bedroom without spending a lot of money on furniture. Would you mind sharing your purchases if you did buy new?

    I love your style.

      It is a little of both. We actually bought the headboard because we got it for less than what it would cost to make it and it is slipcovered for easy cleaning. Everything else is a thrify find that we have updated. The mirrored dresser was a damaged item at Pier 1 and we fixed it and got it for super cheap. I really love to shop flea markets, thrift stores, and antique stores and find items and make them over. Thanks so much for your sweet comments! xo Kristin

      Hi Tonya, We got that bedding a few years back and it appears they don’t carry it anymore. But, we just got new bedding and I absolutely adore this company. They have a great selection and the bedding is well made at a good price: http://bliss-athome.com/2013/09/09/things-i-adore-crane-canopy-bedding/ xo Kristin
