Gray and Coral Bedroom Makeover : DIY and Thrift From Top to Bottom!

After 23 years with the bedroom furniture in the very same position, I had had enough! You won't believe the changes we made in this room. From the walls to the bed linens to the furniture, it was either thrifted, given to us or a DIY project.
Difficulty: Medium
The walls were done with venetian plaster, a decorative coating system that looks rough but was smooth to the touch.There was no cohesiveness in the room, just a bunch of yard sale purchases and sentimental items I couldn’t part with it.
Here are more of the details: We moved the bed from under the long standard window to underneath the high wide windows.
The only piece of furniture that we took out of the room was a hope chest that was at the end of the bed, and it freed up the space immediately. My painting contractor husband built me the headboard out of louvered closet doors and I worked my magic with distressing.

The pops of coral in the room are just the right touch with the grey fabric. Such a difference!

    Design on a dime. Looks terrific. I'm just not a fan of distressing.

    Wow, that's an incredible transformation. Sorry, would have used an exclamation mark there, but it isn't working on my keyboard right now. I love the change you made with the chalk painted furniture. It really brightens up the room and turns it from drab to fab.

      @Suzette Hagen I asked my husband your question so here's his answer: Yes, the ultimate benefit of chalk paint is elimination of a primer step on virtually any wood surface. We did have a high gloss on some of the bedroom makeover furniture and we did it with two coats of chalk paint, distressed to our taste and waxed. The waxing will be the worst part! We did no prep work before the paint was applied!
