Beach Bedroom Makeover

Well, after four weeks of work, my bedroom is finally finished!  It was a lot of work, but in the end, just like anything else you work hard for, it was worth it.  The hardest part of this job was removing the disgusting popcorn from the ceiling.  After two days of working to remove the popcorn, I needed a makeover and a massage!
My headboard was an old door I found at an antique store, and my husband framed it, then I painted and distressed it.  I found my bedding on sale for 85% off at Dillard's.  I was skipping with joy! I replaced the lamps by my bed with something much more "beachy".
I removed the flower print from this frame and replaced it with vinyl wall art words.
I painted my dresser with a light cream color.  I love this dresser!  My sister-in-law gave it to me years ago.  The "bones" of this dresser are beautiful!
Changing the window treatments made all the difference!  I added bamboo blinds from Home Depot, and sheer drapery panels from Target.  It just gave the room such an airy and soft glow.
I found this  bench at T.J. Maxx. Don't you just love that store?

Thank you for stopping by, and let me know what you think!  If  you would like more details of this makeover, including paint colors, how to remove a popcorn ceiling etc. please visit my  Have a great day!

Your bedroom is beautiful! Yes...where would we be without T.J. Maxx, Marshall's and Homegood's! I love the vignette on top of the chest...well the chest too for that matter.
You have created what seems to be a perfect retreat to retire in after a hectic day!
Now please excuse me while I snoop around the rest of your blog for awhile!

You did a very very great job in doing makeover in your room, its like when in that room it feels so calm and relaxing.

redfly said...

Just beautiful!! I love it. It does feel nice and airy and fresh. I also like the bamboo window blinds against the white sheers. Such a nice contrast. Great job!


Anne said...

That headboard is exactly the look I want for a door I just picked up. Do you have any details on what trim was used to frame it out? and is it attached to the bed or did you hang it on the wall?

Love your pretty room!!

Hello Anne,
I wish I would of taken photos when my husband was making this headboard. But, he made it a few years ago, before I started blogging. As far as how it is attached, it is attached to the frame, not the wall. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Stacey said...

It all looks so beautiful! Your bedding is amazing! Nice find at 85% off! We are slowly but surely removing all of the popcorn from our ceilings! Only 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom to go! But, we take the easy way out and hire it done! Even then, it is still a huge mess!

Your bedroom is my newest inspiration for my bedroom! It's so peaceful and calming. I am pinning it to my Master Bedroom Inspiration board right now! Since you are a designer, would you please look at my dresser (it's #91 on Miss Mustard Seed's FFF) and offer a suggestion on what color to paint it? I would appreciate it! Thanks!

YUMMY... I actually bought a door several years ago that I had planned to use when we finally upgraded to a king size bed... perfect plan run amuck. Our room works best with the bed in front of the windows so a door just wasn't going to work... darn... I love the look.


Judy said...

Your bedroom is absolutely gorgeous. I love the sign above the bed. Such a peaceful and soothing retreat.

The king size bed is very comfortable. It is so comfortable to lie down and for sure you will have a sweet dreams lying with this kind of bed.King size bed is comfortable and best solution getting a full night's rest. Aside from that, it ergonomic and keeps your body in proper alignment when you are resting or sleeping.
