Hanging Bed, Faux Brick Guest Room Remodel

2 Materials
4 Weeks

We recently gave one of our old and tired bedrooms (with really badly stained hardwood floors ) the makeover of a lifetime. We incorporated some of the prettiest farmhouse trends into this room- faux brick sheeting and a German schmear, hanging bed we built ourselves, fireplace mantle, wall shelving, re-purposed candle holders turned hanging lighting and lots and lots of paint. Take a look at the transformation!


This is what the main entrance to bedroom looked like, behind that door is the tiny closet which we turned into built in shelving.


Here's the entrance, and you can see the tiny closet to the left.

Before - Original closet door

And this is the entry to bathroom.

Before - Damaged floors

This is after we ripped up the hideous green carpet, this was the condition of the floors!! Yuck, time for a change.

Completed bedroom

And here is the completed room! The hanging bed we built ourselves, coffee bar from Facebook marketplace, rope for bed and lamps, hanging chair and both carpets from amazon, some throw pillows, candle holders turned light pendants, throw on bed & side tables all from TJ maxx, bedding from JC penny's.

Coffee bar

Coffee bar and wall shelving

Hanging ladder thing over the bar was a repurposed antique playpen we added twinkly lights and cotton to.

Tiny closet repurposed into built in shelving

Baskets from TJ maxx. Lined the closet with brick paneling and german schmeared it to tie into the feature wall behind bed and fireplace surround.

    Stunning room! Is the bed actually hanging? It looks like only the bottom is suspended with the ropes. If that is the case is there movement? One of my favorite things about the room is the saying on the floor in the doorway. Love that idea!
