the after.










I am really happy about the outcome of this room.  Sean calls it the “hotel room in the Netherlands”, which I take as a compliment from Sean. It’s much more minimalist and simple than my style usually is (much more Sean’s style)….and i love that about it. It’s soothing, calm and much more “beachy” than I usually am drawn to, but I am in LOVE.

 This was our cheapest DIY project to date.  We had the paint already (from our living room makeover HERE), so we used that for the ceiling and walls.  The comforter and pillows were given to us by my friend, Noelle, who is a collector or bedding (self-proclaimed), and it pulled the ENTIRE room together.  The sewing table, chair, suitcases and owl were all being used in other places in our home and I did some switch-a-roo with things I found outside. The nightstand is a mini-table my mom had and even the succulents are from outside!

 We did get the new lighting fixture (my favorite thing in the room) from IKEA on the cheap.  

Thank you for each of your inspirations, suggestions and ideas.  I really appreciate it and am off to enjoy the new room!

  11. Amazing how just a few changes makes a girl so happy, isn’t it???? Cool paint job, and the bedding is perfect!!! I like it!


  12. love the orange cieling…gives the room some punch without being too much! danny & i have the same problem with our “master” (& i use the term loosely) bedroom, we haven’t hung a single thing on the walls, we were just happy to be able to fit a cal-king bed and two dressers in the room & still be able to get in and out bed! lol! i do think you need to find a good home for that bench & set of chairs though, they look lonely in your garage!

  13. Cool! You painted the ceiling a *COLOR* what a great idea!

  19. awesome makeover! i love it. i so wish i could convince my hubby to paint the ceilings, but that goes totally against all that he believes…. i love the orange – again, i don’t think i could convince him to go with a color that bold.
