Here is the long awaited reveal my main bedroom makeover!
If you have been following my bedroom posts, you will remember some of the projects I undertook in this makeover. But if not, here is a quick recap:

|Fabric Covered Mirrored Wardrobe Doors|
|Old Book Page Tallboys & Flatscreen
TV Cover Up
And here is a look at how everything came together in our new bedroom …
Firstly, we purchased a black wrought iron bed to give a farmhouse sort of feel.
We love the new bed and it is super comfortable!
I decided to do a wedding photo feature wall behind the bed. I took out all the spare photo prints we had from our wedding and using old frames selected some photos and backed them in similar colours to our new quilt. Memories…. 🙂
I love that this project cost nothing to create and fills a once before very bare wall.
The feature window mirror above the bed is hand made and was purchased from a yard sale.
And it matches perfectly. 🙂
The original bedside tables were replaced with restyled turquoise side tables.
I got these at Goodwill for $20 the set. Bargain!
Hubby also got a big white cane chair to “hang” his dirty clothes on, instead of the floor! I recovered an old chair cushion with french fabric for the seat, and the chair was purchased at a Church sale and resprayed.
On the left we have a large window that covers the entire wall. I used to loathe the creamy yellow drapes, but now they blend in perfectly with the colour scheme. (Sorry, I didn’t get a better photo.)
Can you see hubby’s lamp above? I purchased a pair of them at a yard sale for $5. I replaced the shades with fabric ones from Target (on sale of course), then dry brushed the bases with mint green paint to bring out the detailing.
I decided to cover my side lamp shade in leftover fabric from my quilt to match the bedding. Haven’t decided whether I’ll do hubby’s too or not.
Speaking of bedding, my first handmade patchwork quilt now adorns our bed and is super soft and wonderfully warm. I alternate the pillowcases, one patterned and one white each side. At the moment I have the the stenciled bird cases on. 🙂 So much nicer than plain white and the stencilling didn’t cost a cent.
Our tallboys at the end of our bed were given an old book page Modge Podge makeover.
While the flatscreen TV was concealed behind a green throw and some wooden picture frames.
And the wire bust completed the look.
Although not new, I have to include our gorgeous chandelier which we had installed about 6 months ago. I love how romantic it makes the room feel.
Finally, what were once mirrored wardrobe doors that were stuck in the 80’s, are now covered in gorgeous white gathered fabric. I get a lot of people asking how they still slide with the fabric. I guess there is a rather large gap between the doors. If you look closely at the top and bottom of the doors, there was a small gap between the glass and the door framework where I was able to insert the fabric flush with the frames. It’s hard to explain, but it totally works. 🙂
We now have a full length mirror on the back of the bathroom door which eliminates the need for these mirrors.
So here is the boring before:
And the after:
I’m so happy with the makeover and introducing the new colours. It really brightens the room.
