Bedroom Room Reveal: One Day Makeover

tufted headboardI love a good room makeover, especially one that doesn’t cost the earth and has maximum impact. The Block room reveals have sadly been postponed until tomorrow night, due to the cricket, so i thought i’d try and fill the void with my own room reveal. When we moved into our new home in January of last year, we couldn’t afford a proper headboard for our room. I was happy to hang our New York City print from IKEA over our bed as a temporary option as it looked fab. I was so pleased with it in fact, that I haven’t really looked for anything to replace it, until wall pennantWhile the NYC print looked great, it was pretty impractical as it provided no support while reading or crocheting in bed. Still, I didn’t feel moved to replace it until I saw the perfect headboard at one of my local furniture and homewares shops. SOLD! Hubby and I strapped it to the top of our prado and carefully drove it home. We only had to stop three times to adjust the ropes – clearly we aren’t brilliant at tying knots!! 🙂 Tufted headboardI bought a few bits and pieces to help tie the room together, but most of the items I already had on hand. Shopping at home is the best!! Overall, I’m pretty stoked with how the room has evolved. Hubby said it’s not the manliest bedroom, but I did I include a couple of skulls to keep him happy. 🙂bedroom ideas and decor

      Thank you! Yes shopping at home is great. It’s funny how moving items into different rooms can make things feel like new. 🙂

    It looks lovely. I really like how the kantha quilt and cushion complement each other. And love the colour of the bed head. You must be so happy with it.

      Thanks Libby. I already had the Kantha and the cushion, which helped keep the budget down. Thanks for visiting here. 🙂

    It looks terrific, Mandy. I’m starting to research to attempt a room makeover (two actually) of my own. Our bedroom has white walls and our quilt cover set is white and we have dowdy old wooden drawers and not much else apart from a lot of mess 🙁

    I just ordered 3 canvases of Eddy on a kind of fern green background so am thinking my colour scheme will have to include greens, browns and whites but that’s as far as I have gotten…any advice?

    The bedroom may be primarily for sleeping, but that doesn’t mean it should be neglected as a design space. Thanks for sharing this article.
