Easy Fall Bedroom Makeover

| | |

This was one of the most dramatic and easy fall bedroom makeovers ever. All I did was replace the beds, rug, lighting, and linens. The end result was amazing!

Every once in awhile I am speechless. And for those of you that know me well, that is almost impossible! This fall bedroom makeover was amazing!

This is our boy’s double bedroom. I never imagined it would ever look this good. A few years ago I partnered with Overstock to plan a fall bedroom makeover. It’s a very dramatic transformation and I am so thrilled with how it turned out. The room was almost entirely redone with furnishings from Overstock which included a new rug, beds, mattresses, bedding, a chandelier, and accessories. And I styled the bedroom for fall, which I love.

It’s as if the bedroom grew up, just like our boys.


To appreciate this room, you really need to see the before. And yes, this room looked like this “before” photo less than two years ago. The decor in this bedroom was pretty outdated since the “locker themed furniture” was almost twenty years old. I had no idea how dramatic new beds would be in this room!

Metal Beds and Mattress Set

The first thing I want to share with you in this fall bedroom makeover is the metal beds. The Giselle Graceful Lines Victorian Iron Metal Beds by iNSPIRE Q Classic not only look fabulous but are really sturdy. They come in dark grey and white and I had a really hard time deciding on the color. But I am so happy I chose white. The style is classic and the perfect vintage look (even though they are new!)

You may remember I used the same bed in the master bedroom in Waco. Just so you know, this metal bed in a queen is under $300.

Both are queen-sized beds and they look fabulous with the Serta Westview Super Pillow Top Queen-size Mattress Set. The mattress sets come in Plush and Firm and I ordered the Firm. I slept in one of the beds the first night we got them just to test them out and wow! It has a soft pillow top but a firm mattress. It’s exactly what every bed needs. I also love the height of the foundation and the mattress.


Natural Fiber Rug

This rug is so perfect for this room! The rug is the Safavieh Casual Natural Fiber Chunky Thick Handmade Sage/ Natural Jute Rug – 10′ x 14′. I am so in love with the texture and I love that it is different from all of the other rugs in our home! Plus, look how well it matches the Pagosa Plaid Woven Throw at the end of the bed.


Duvet Cover Bedding Set

One of my favorite items in the fall bedroom makeover is the polka dot bedding. It comes in a set and you will not believe how many things are included. Its the Maison Rouge Amelie Ivory Cotton Jacquard 7-piece Duvet Cover Set in the full/queen size. The polka dot duvet is adorable, plus it has six more pieces in the set! There are two quilted Euro shams, two polka dot pillow shams, and two decorative grey and white pillows (not pictured). The entire bedding set costs about $75.00.I ordered fall pillows with felt cut wreaths which are the Rizzy Home Holiday Collection 20-inch Throw Pillows. They have a lot of designs available and I think they look great in this room! Finally, the bed skirts are the Baratta Stitch Embroidery 14-inch Drop Bed Skirt. I love the satin stitch!



I am a huge fan of white wood chandeliers and this one is my most favorite. In fact, if you look closely at my home you just might find a few more of these! This Rustic 6-Light Distressed Wooden Chandelier is available on Overstock for the best price I have ever seen anywhere (under $200.00). I even put the light together myself! (one tip – the screws to hold the wood pieces in place are already screwed in so just use the Allen wrench to unscrew them and then attach the wooden arms.)


Plaid Throw

With all-white bedding, I knew I was treading on thin ice with my boys. (They would likely think the room looks too feminine.) So I chose a more “masculine” Pagosa Plaid Woven Throw for each bed and I love the impact it has on the room. The rug and the plaid throws are perfect together.

I hope you enjoy the progress photos of this fall bedroom makeover. The best way to change a room dramatically is to start with an empty room. And that’s what I did.


The rug was the first thing I put in the room. It took about a day for it to flatten entirely, as it was rolled pretty tightly in the bag. The beds took about two hours for me to assemble. It took an hour and a half for the first one and thirty minutes for the second one. You can easily put these beds together with a helper to hold the headboards while you attach the sidebars.


I was really happy with how sturdy the beds were once they were put together. I have no worries that my six foot five, six foot six and six foot seven boys will cause any damage to these beds. And since they are in their mid-twenties they have outgrown the jumping on the bed stage. At least I hope they have.


The Sertapedic mattress bed sets are wonderful and really high. I remembered to add the bed skirt before the top mattress. I love it when that happens! It’s a good thing I have a new steamer to iron my bed skirts!


Here is a close up of the Duvet Cover Sets. The white and grey polka dot pillow isn’t in my photos but I will use them. They are adorable.


And here is the finished fall bedroom makeover. The painting, antique crock, florals, and vintage books are all part of my personal collection. I love shopping at my home to add final touches. It’s a very inexpensive place to shop!


The table is also a vintage flea market find. I painted it with milk paint and I love it!


I want to thank Overstock for making this room transformation possible. Be sure to head over to the Overstock site. They have just about anything you would ever need for your home.

  1. I adore this and that rug really made the room pop. May I ask what the wall paint color is? No worries if you don’t have that still. I just luv what you did with this and have two guest rooms I want to work on and I’m struggling with wall color now💁🏼‍♀️

  2. Leslie, have you ever tried a king size duvet or quilt on a full/queen sized mattress? I have a full size mattress and use a king size duvet or comforter because I like the longer overhang on each side, especially for winter time.

    Love the room transformation, favorite part is your painting. My, oh my, your sons are tall. We have a tall family also so I despise foot boards. Does this bother your sons?

  3. Hi Leslie, the room is absolutely beautiful. Love the transformation. Can you tell me where you got the painting? Is it one of yours?
