This Farmhouse Bedroom Makeover was simple and affordable. I re-used a lot of what I already had and refreshed this space in no time. Check out our farmhouse bedroom makeover below.

This room was a blank slate to start. There was nothing really to do besides paint and decorate. Follow along to see the transformation in our Farmhouse Bedroom Makeover.

Decorating with neutrals is my favorite way to decorate. Every now and then I’ll add in a pop of color, but it’s usually something like a throw blanket, throw pillow or a piece of art. My reasoning for this is that if all of my basics are neutrals, then I can change my mind and mix things up as often as I’d like to. For me, that’s a must, considering I do like to change my mind often. I like having the freedom to do so, as well. By picking neutral options, I’m not locked in to any one decision. Are you the type to change your mind often, when it comes to decorating?
I started with my white bedding, added a striped duvet and two Euro shams, and then added a few throw pillows to liven it up a little. Starting with neutral bedding is my favorite way to start. Think about a hotel bed… Almost always, high-end hotels have white bedding. And I have to say, it always looks super inviting to me. By starting with white bedding, I have the freedom to swap out my duvet from time to time, or switch out my throw pillows. I really could change the entire look of this space without having to change my bedding.

These nightstands are one of my favorite projects. I got them from IKEA for maybe $30 each and gave them a super simple makeover. You can check it out here. They have 3 decent sized drawers that provide a ton of storage, which is super nice. I’m super happy with the way these nightstands turned out. Check them out!
Since the tops of these nightstands are a little small, having a lamp on top just makes it feel cramped. With that said, adding these plug in wall sconces (from IKEA) are great since they don’t take up any space on the surface at all, but still provide all of the necessary function. You can find some similar wall sconces from Amazon here.
Originally, this fireplace in our bedroom was dark slate tile. My personal preference is usually just light and bright, so I knew I wanted to change it up a little bit. I taped everything off and primed the tile (maybe twice, I can’t remember), and then gave it 2 coats in my favorite bright white (Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore). I LOVE it. It’s amazing how the little patterns in the tile now stand out.
Needless to say, I’m super happy with this decision. Since it’s a wrap around fireplace (3 sided), I did it all the way around. We have this same tile in our bathroom and I’m debating trying the same thing in a few places… stay tuned for that.
In this house, we actually have a few flowering bushes that are gorgeous. Even as the flowers fade, the leaves are still so pretty. I snipped a few stems to add to this vase to liven up this space. Whether it’s a potted plant or fresh flowers/greenery, it just adds so much to the space.
As always, thanks so much for reading! I love that you’re here. Pin this post below so that you can come back to it later. See you again soon, friend!
