BEDROOM/NURSERY REVEAL! – a budget friendly remodel!

I had completely forgotten how much work went into this bedroom! Look at that before picture!! #amazeballs

This room is so hard to photograph because it’s in the basement AND it’s a long rectangle shape, so why not start the post of with a disclaimer?! I don’t think I really needed to say anything though, our professional grade “before” pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

OH, this was also before we upgraded our camera! #winkface

Originally, this room was suppose to be a family room, I think. Although it has a closet and a bathroom right off of it, we using it as a family room. The other two kids sleep downstairs and because this house is on the smaller side, we needed to get a bit fancy with our nursery situation! What better room to place a master bedroom/nursery than a long rectangle living room? The bathroom that it’s connected to needs its own blog post just to show you how awesome it is…cough cough (no sarcasm in my voice at all) BUT more on the bathroom later, let’s talk more about this room!

bedroom12

Let’s first talk about the RENOVATING crap!

You can’t see it very well but the lighting was old school, like had been there probably since the 50’s. Jeff removed the lights and noticed the electrical was knob and tube wiring aka really old. So, in order to place recessed lighting, he had to connect to the existing knob and tube wiring and run new wires to the new light fixtures.

If you look closely in the photo below, on the left side of the bed, on the wall, you can see the patchwork for the old access doors to the house waterline. When Jeff removed those old pieces of trim, he noticed some water damage so he ended up taking a large chunk of drywall out of the wall and patching that.

He also removed the old trim from the bookshelf, sanded it all down, and replaced it with new trim, before staining it black.

bedroom11

After installing recessed lights, Jeff patched the ceiling and textured it himself with a sponge. (I was super impressed with how perfect it blended with the rest of the ceiling)

We then revamped the bedroom with a lighter color of paint.

Behr Ultra paint (satin) from The Home Depot in the shade of “HALATION”

bedroom1

I hand painted and cut the edges of the back of the bookshelf with white paint…it took like 3 hours. #itwasharderthanitlooks  I figured I would put that detail in this post because it took so long and I am proud of it! HAHA

bedroom3

Once the painting was done, it felt like a brand new room. I mean, of course we would love to rip out the carpet and dig the windows out more, but we were on a pretty tight budget.

It’s amazing how a room can transform with just a can of paint and some new lighting!

bedroom4

NOW came MY FAVORITE PART, the DECORATING!

I knew I wanted to keep it simple, light, modern, and fresh.

Neutral colors were a must.

There was no room for a changing table or dresser, so I made the bookshelf into the dresser with those wire baskets from Target!

Blending a master bedroom and nursery together can be difficult, but I focused on fitting in the important furniture pieces first and then added design elements to tie everything together.

EVERYTHING ELSE IS LINKED BELOW

well, everything except this BED!

COULD YOU DIE!?

Do you guys remember Walker Edison Furniture from the patio furniture giveaway that we did?

Well, this bed is from the same company. I follow them on instagram #duh and they posted this bed not even a month ago, and I KNEW I HAD TO HAVE IT!

Get this…we have NEVER had a bed frame before. EVER.

We’ve been married for 8 years and never got around to finding a headboard or bed frame that we loved. I am so glad we waited though. It’s so gorgeous and perfect for our little master bedroom/nursery.

We made sure to compliment the bed with only the best memory foam mattress from LUCID Mattresses and sheets, pillows, and a new down comforter from Linenspa.

You can tell, we are all huge fans!

bedroom9We love how everything came together and how it all turned out.

We couldn’t do a reveal without a GIVEAWAY!

    We are a foster family who’ve fostered half a dozen newborns/infants over the past two years. We currently have a 20 month old who’s about to outgrow his mini crib, and our own mattress has worn out its welcome. Rather, we’ve worn it down to sprung springs and painful lumps. This would be such a great giveaway to win!

    UM…. this is the most amazing redo/giveaway ever. Pinned this because I am OBSESSED with that bed and crib. We are expecting our first little one (ahhhh!) in September and I have NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING. Our current bed has no frame because I can never decided and as far as cribs – I am clueless but gray/white is my color scheme for nursery. We live in a renovated cottage and this style is soooooo perfect. Ek. Congrats on your space! Instagramming like whoa now.
