DIY Home: Bedroom Revamp

It’s been a while since my bedroom got some TLC so I decided to give it a little revamp last week. Ever since we bought the house, I never really got around to adding any art to the walls or putting much thought into the room. Not that it wasn’t a pretty space before, it just lacked a few things. The walls were also starting to look dirty and dusty. It was time for a bit of cleaning and redecorating.

Paint It Black

I really had my heart set on a shiplap wall, but then I decided to do that in another part of my home. That would have become a project I just don’t have the time for. After painting my bathroom walls  “boudoir black” and researching black walls on Google and Pinterest, I felt tempted to try out a dark accent wall. Because it’s a small bedroom, I was really afraid of making it look smaller. Thankfully, it did not have this effect. It simply made it stand out and look more elegant. Sometimes a little change is all you need to make a statement.

Painting

For the accent wall, I used “Boudoir Black” by Glidden from The Home Depot. I like that this paint is odorless (but I do not like that I had to apply about 3-4 coats). I used painter’s tape to divide the wall from the other walls but truthfully, it wasn’t the best solution. If you have a steady hand, use an angled brush as I did.I got way better results doing this.

Once the accent wall was done, it was time to touch up the trim. I always keep a small can of trim paint in the house. It’s the same white semi-gloss trim paint (Benjamin Moore) throughout the house. I then realized I needed to give the other walls a fresh coat of paint. They were just looking dirty and in need of freshening up. So, I ran to Lowes the next day as it was on my way. You must be thinking why I use so many different paints! Not planned, promise. And obviously, this post is not sponsored! The answer is convenience. But if I had planned it better, I might have bought all the paint from Benjamin Moore as I have in the past. However, after trying the Sherwin Williams for HGTV paint at Lowes, I’m sold! It’s nice and thick and does not require more than 2 coats. The quality is excellent and I recommend it if you’re on a budget.

Bedroom Revamp

Enough about paint, let’s discuss the decor. Everything you see pictured is all repurposed. Sometimes, you can “shop your home” before you head out to the stores. I spent under $300 on this bedroom revamp. But I already had some of the supplies. The black paint was left over from the bathroom  was used on the accent wall. I also already had trim paint. The only new paint I purchased was the Marshmallow by Sherwin Williams HGTV (Lowes) which cost $35.

Golden, Baby!

Gold pieces against a dark wall always pop. I decided to paint my nightstand gold. I used Americana Decor paint in metallic gold (which I already had). It was a risk since I wasn’t sure how it would come out but I’m glad I did it because I love it! I grabbed an old vintage frame I had in the garage and sat it on top. There was a nail already on the wall so I added a simple upside down wreath. I spray painted the sunburst mirror in the center gold to match. The other gold mirror I already had in my bedroom.

I absolutely love looking into my bedroom now. It feels new, cozy and has all the vintage glam vibes! I have a few more things I want to add like mounting the television onto the wall and creating a frame to conceal it and adding some decor to the smaller dresser. And maybe a small rug to step onto in the morning. I’ll be sure to share those updates, too 🙂

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures
    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a
    linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show
    the same outcome.

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
