new bedroom

This summer my husband and I decided to take on a huge undertaking...HUGE! A master bedroom remodel. Our bedroom was the entire upstairs of our house so we had plenty of space for furniture. However, the room we are now using as our bedroom was the guest room on the main floor and is drastically smaller. We just hoped and prayed our stuff would fit into it...
This is what the guest bedroom looked like before.

We payed a little extra for the paint and primer in one which was a great choice. We didn't even use a whole gallon for the room. The color is pewter gray.

I got the accent pillow cover idea from a shop on etsy. It was my first attempt at making pillow covers so I am happy with the result.

Our new room has less storage so we bought an inexpensive wardrobe from Ikea to go with our dresser.

This is a pallette we got from a friend to store my shoes in.
I just had to sand it, put polyurithane on it, and attach casters to the bottom.

Above: I covered an old hat box with material from a shower curtain we had to use as extra storage. The scarfs are hanging off of something I found in the Ikea "as is" section. I just added some decorative knobs to the slats.
Below: For my husband's side of the dresser we hung an old painted coca cola crate to hold his ties. 

We ended up with a little extra space so we decided to add some seating in front of the window. This is a miniature church pew we found at Building Value for a great price.

We could not be happier with our new bedroom! Hopefully it will motivate me enough to tackle the upstairs mess now...


  1. I am in love with this bedroom. All the details are just perfect! The church pew is adorable, the coke crate for ties is genius, and the pillows are the perfect touch. I could go on and on. Love it all.

  2. My grandma is trying to get rid of a church pew if you guys want another :)
