bedroom makeover!

For the last several weeks, I’ve been hard at work redesigning my new bedroom. It’s been quite a process. After sleeping on an air mattress the first week and living without any furniture for the next two, I am proud to say that my bedroom is now complete! It’s no Extreme Makeover, but I’m quite proud of the transformation that came from these two tiny hands.

BEFORE

Mama Choo said: 'That room IS small!'

don't you like my luggage nightstand? so chic.

What I did:
  • paint room– color: Benjamin Moore Excalibur Gray 2118
  • took down wall shelves
  • assembled furniture (headboard, bookcase, dresser all assembled by yours truly. thank you college degree.)
  • hung curtains
  • hung up mirror, picture frames, wall hooks
 
What I bought:
  • IKEA mattress
  • Target headboard, dresser, bookcase, curtains (Target has such AMAZING shipping! I may write them a thank you letter.)
  • Martha Steward duvet cover
  • Martha Stewart quilt
  • pillow cases (white: Martha Stewart, purple: Hotel Collection)
  • I ♥ Martha Stewart
  • IKEA mirror
  • posters/pictures (all from art.com) & frames (Target and IKEA)

and with a little pixie dust… Voila!

AFTER

So what’d ya think?! Here, I’ll take y’all on a little tour…

bed and vanity area

opposite wall (yes, that's a monogrammed lunchbox.)

just to the left: on top of my dresser

 

to the right of my bed, probably my favorite picture.

I think my taste is rather simple and minimalist. So while I may eventually hang a couple more pictures or add a vase of flowers, for the most part I’d say my new room is quite cozy enough for me. And for a month’s span of time, I’m pretty darn happy! This bedroom makeover certainly had its highs and lows, but as I lie on my comfy bed finishing up this post, I realize New York City is slowly starting to feel (and look) like home…
