Bedroom Makeover - Plain Jane to Glam!

Like most older split-level homes, our master bedroom is very small. It makes me crack up to even call it a master bedroom, given its size. Although our bedroom before our recent overhaul wasn't terrible looking, it was definitely "Plain Jane." It’s like we tried updating the room but never quite made it to the finish line.

The worst was this view from across our bed. The dressers did not match plus we had so much "blank" space above.

Our need for a proper closet made this bedroom makeover a "must." I was tired of covering up the non-functional old closet with curtains. Notice how haphazardly hung they were...I never intended the curtains to be a permanent solution to this eyesore of an area.

Now comes the dramatic "After" photos. View of bed. That's the same bed we had before but I upholstered the headboard!

Below photo is the view from our bed. I repainted one of the dressers and removed the larger dresser out of room. My new custom closet holds all of my folding clothes.

    Are you sure this is the same room??? Only asking because it looks so totally different. Seriously, a remarkable makeover. One of the best I have seen.

    where did you get those awesome jewelry hangers?

      Hi Debbie, they were from HomeGoods. There were times I've seen them in HomeGoods' sister brands (T. J. Maxx & Marshall's). Good luck!

    What is the light source in the room as there are no end table or dresser lights?
