A DIY Bedroom Makeover

After living with a dark brown and orange master bedroom for five years, it was time to brighten things up! To stay on a budget, and because I love a good DIY project, we DIY'd the majority of the space!

Here's our bedroom in the dark brown & orange phase - five years was enough!

I created a mood board of things that inspired me, then started figuring out how to make it a reality.

Rather than purchasing a new bed, I took our existing IKEA bed and turned it into a tufted headboard.

This IKEA nightstand got painted a pretty yellow. I also gave the lamp a makeover, and created the watercolor lampshade.

I scored a gorgeous dresser at an auction and gave it this stunning two-tone paint job. It's still one of my favorite pieces. I created most of the artwork in our gallery wall, as well as a few pieces on the nightstand as well.

The bedroom came together perfectly, and it's such a bright and beautiful space! Links to all of the DIY projects can be found on my blog!

    You have a great sense of design! Both of your rooms are totally different, but both are really pretty.
