It’s time to start the third-floor bedroom makeover. I cannot wait to share what I have planned for this room!
I have been talking about our third-floor bedroom makeover project for weeks now and I am pleased to say it is finally happening. I created this mood board to visualize what I have in mind for the room. When I see this it makes me so happy and excited.
Makeover in a Month
I have teamed up with three amazing bloggers and we are going to each makeover a room in a month. I have joined Melissa at The Inspired Room, Karianne at Thistlewood Farms, and Marian at Miss Mustard Seed and we have one month to remodel a room for the Makeover in a Month challenge.
The final reveal is August 28th.
Oh my, what have I done …
I am both excited and nervous and when you see my “before photos” you will see that I have a big project ahead of me.
It’s really hard to post about a makeover project when you only have BEFORE photos. So I am sharing some of the furniture pieces I will be using in the bedroom. The room is a seldom-used guest room that use to be filled with old home decor items.
When you see the before photos you will see that the room is still filled with mismatched old home decor items.
Color Palette for the Bedroom Makeover
I know the color palette is neutral but as you know I love a neutral palette. That’s because I can always add lots of color to the room every season.
Seriously though, I originally thought I was going to go with a gray and white theme. But when I realized that almost every bedroom we have is gray and white. You can see that in our master bedroom, the boys king bedroom, and the front bedroom of our Waco home.
As you can see from the mood board above, I am going with a tan, off white, and copper theme. I absolutely love these furniture pieces.
I love this vision for the bedroom on our third floor and as I look at these before photos, I cannot believe the bedroom looks this bad.
Are you ready?
The Before Photos
This is by far the worst photo. It makes me laugh.
There is nothing good happening in this photo. The drapes are broken, noting matches and the Christmas bulbs have been there for a year.
I do have to say that the only reason the black filing cabinet is in that room is that it was too heavy to move down three flights of stairs. It’s true!
I cannot wait to style the bookshelves. Of course, I have no idea what I am going to do with the books. I want to keep most of them but we shall see.
You would have thought I could at least have found a dust ruffle for this bed.
Bedroom Makeover Plans
To start, I am going to empty out the room. I don’t expect to keep much. Maybe I will keep the mirror and some of the books, but that’s it.
I have four weeks and four main projects. Let me tell you what I am planning to do!
Create a Statement Wall Behind the Bed
As you can see, it’s kind of an unusual wall behind the bed. But I am going to do something to make it stand out. I have a few ideas that are pretty fun.
Paint the Room
It goes without saying that I want to paint the room. We have used this paint color a lot in our home and I want something lighter on the walls.
Replace the Light Fixtures
I am not a fan of ceiling fans but we put one in here at the request of my father. I don’t even remember why he thought we needed one.
Paint an Abstract Painting for the Room
In my former life, I was a full-time artist and instructor. I am excited to pull out my palette knives and paint a fun abstract painting for this room.
If I end up with some extra time, I am going to try to recover the green chair and ottoman. But I think there is about a 10% chance of that happening. If anyone thinks a slipcover could work on this chair, then I might have time for that.
It’s time to get started as I have less than four weeks to finish this room. Once these projects are done I will be partnering with one of my favorite brands to furnish the room.
I am so excited and can’t believe that in less than a month this room will look entirely different!
