bedroom makeover: before and after

Blog - 11.bedroom makeover_NEW copyMy twin sisters (the youngest of the five!) have been sharing this bedroom for their entire life. It was seriously outdated. Now twenty years old, they were in desperate need of a more mature space that they could call their own. I was working with a tight budget so I decided to keep their lavender colour duvet covers and use them as a starting point. The top priorities on their wish list were: more space and more storage. We were able to create more space by rearranging the layout of the furniture, removing some of the larger pieces of furniture, and lightening up the room. Storage was created in the large custom made desk (designed by myself and built by deblackbear furniture), as well as under bed storage. The feel of this room is fresh and flirty.

Here are some more photos from the makeover!


A beautiful grey stained wooden headboard, made especially for this space. I love the variety of different textured pillows!


You can see part of the photo wall in this photo. Photo walls are always fun to make.


Many of the decor accents are silver and shiny – contributing to a peaceful work space.


The cubbies in the desk are lined with purple and white patterned paper! Each furniture piece has a unique and beautifulĀ knob.

Let me know what you think of the new space!
