This was a very dramatic and easy fall bedroom makeover. A few easy changes and it looks like a new room. The end result was amazing!
This bedroom makeover took place a few years ago but it is so dramatic I just had to share it again because the transformation was so incredible.
Every once in a while I am speechless. And for those of you that know me well, that is almost impossible! This fall bedroom makeover was so dramatic, I can hardly believe it!

This is our boy’s double bedroom and it underwent an easy bedroom makeover that resulted in a dramatic transformation. I am so thrilled with how it turned out. The room was almost entirely redone with furnishings I found online 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 is an actual picture of what the room looked like in this “before” photo.
The decor in this bedroom was pretty outdated since the “locker-themed furniture” was almost twenty years old. In my defense, this was quite a few years ago, and the room was basically a mishmash of items that didn’t really match. I had no idea how dramatic the makeover of this room would be, especially with the new beds!
Metal Beds and Mattress Set
The first thing I want to share with you in this fall bedroom makeover is the metal beds. The beds 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 added the perfect vintage look (even though they are new!)
You may remember I used the same bed in the master bedroom in Waco, I love this bed that much!
Both are queen-sized beds and they look tall and inviting with the Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite Firm Super Pillow Top. The mattress comes in Plush, Medium, 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.
Natural Fiber Rug
This rug is so perfect for this room and it 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 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 is seriously the cutest ever! It’s the Tufted Dot Duvet Cover in the full/queen size. The polka dot duvet is adorable, plus it comes with two pillowcases. It comes in many sizes and colors, they are all so cute.
The cute fall pillows with felt cut wreaths are out of stock now, but are so cute! The last item I shopped for online was the bed skirt. 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 one of my favorites. 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 at an incredible price, (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.)
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” 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.
Step by Step How To
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!
And here is the finished fall bedroom makeover! What an amazing difference!
The painting, antique crock, florals, and vintage books are all part of my personal collection. I love shopping my home to add the 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!
