I didn’t intend to do a full makeover. Really, I just meant to throw a new coat of paint on the walls…
First of all, your sanctuary should be inviting! You should want to spend time there, rest there, read there, snuggle with the spouse there, bounce on the bed with the kids there! Mine has long since lost most of its inviting qualities. Plus, it’s small. Small-ish. And dove gray. Which sounded charming in theory, but is actually B-O-R-I-N-G in real life.
I have ignored the bedroom for a long time. So how did I suddenly decide to redo the entire room?
Well, I was busy ignoring my bedroom one day when I saw this awesome hall tree on Pinterest. I just fell in love with it. I initially pinned it under Projects until it dawned on me – with a little adjustment, a pair of these would be incredible nightstands / accent wall! And so, the idea of a entirely new bedroom was born – mostly because I had to do this project and I can’t think where else to put it! LOL
Me being me (cheap) I immediately surveyed my house. I do have some good things to work with. Also, did I mention the bedroom is SMALL? So, it definitely needs some serious organization with the beautification!
I have a great sleigh bed. And a gorgeous chifferobe my husband restored for me years ago. And a beautiful antique dresser I found on Craigslist. There are some good bones here to work with.
Once I made up a list of my assets at home, I headed up to one of my favorite salvage places, ReStore, where I picked up two of the most gorgeous old doors. Check out that curve on these girls!

I love ReStore too! Those doors were a great find. I can't wait to see your bedroom makeover.
