Bedroom Update

The time is here friends, we are finally updating our bedroom! While the kids both have beautiful rooms (you can see them here and here) we have never taken the time to beautify our room. We decided on a paint colour back in December and well free time is scarce so that can of paint has been sitting in the garage waiting for its moment to shine!

Since this week is a short week, Evan jumped on the opportunity to take it off of work and get started on our bedroom redo. The tasks at hand this week are to paint the room AND get the wall paper up for our feature wall behind the bed. Well guess what the walls are painted, the wall paper is going up today, so now this means its time for the fun stuff! 

A new duvet cover is in store thats for sure. As well as some new lamps for our bedside tables, and a full length mirror is in order. I honestly don’t know how I don’t have one yet. Oh, just you wait for all the #selfies and #ootd’s will follow suite 😉 I would LOVE to splurge on some new furniture but thats just not in the cards, so I think some DIY is in order. I really am debating on refinishing our dark wood dressers to lighten them up. I feel it would definitely look better with the rest of the room. I am going to start with the end tables, as they aren’t as big of a loss if it backfires on me.

One project that is for sure in the cards is a new headboard. I just can’t decide which route I want to go. I’ve head my heart set on a tufted headboard forever now, but I am also loving the look of a wood panelled headboard. What do you think? Which route would you go?


Head over to our pinterest home board to see more of what I am pinning for our bedroom update. Feel free to send me some ideas or inspiration if you have any!

    Obviously I’m the first to comment since I love bedroom re-dos!!!!

    Definitely paint your existing furniture. I had dark furniture and just painted it lighter to go with the new look of the room. Good money saver since bedroom furniture that is NOT from Ikea is ridiculously overpriced.

    Also, I love the look of a wood panel headboard. Especially that one in the picture. But you are pretty crafty and could probably make your own padded headboard…although I’m not sure how complicated the tufted look would be…

    Excited for the end result!

    Our bedroom needs an update, too. I will be following your progress so that I can copy, umm, I mean be inspired by, your decorating ideas.

    You have some really great ideas! I love the clean crisp look of it all. I have been wanting to update my bedroom too. We just finished our dining and living room so hopefully soon. Can’t wait to check out your board!
