So I added item redoing our bedroom to the 2017 Furniture Flip Bucket List in the hopes of figuring out what was missing from this neglected space.
The first thing that greets you when you walk into our bedroom has always been my nightstand. I fell in love with this vignette ages ago so I used it as inspiration for the rest of the space: warm wood + pops of color + a glint of brass.
In the past looks I’ve tried, we’ve never had a headboard. I think that made me feel like there was something juvenile about our space. So this time around I needed to see if a headboard would help refine our bedroom. And I gotta say I am loving the anchor of the plush blue velvet!
I also kept my beloved leather + brass cantilever chair in the corner by the window.
I think one day I’d ideally like to use this chair at a desk, but until then I guess my husband can keep throwing his “clean” underwear on it *insert facepalm emoji.*
Next to the chair is our thrifted MCM dresser. I found this bad boy for only $50 and eventually scored the sunset mirror to go with it.
Just outside our door you can peek the roadside rescue ladder I've often used as a lateral storage piece. Our hallway doesn't have much going on so I added the low-profile vertical piece for some architectural interest.
In this redecorating process, I did figure out that I’m bothered by the lack of varied furniture height in our room.
I shopped our apartment to introduce something lower as an alternative storage piece - do you recognize it? This bench was actually our coffee table but I liked the idea of converting it to a get ready station.
The pièce de résistance to the makeover however is new bedding... I never realized how grown-up it would feel to have a real duvet cover! We scored the Marble Percale Duvet Cover and matching shams (guess what - their on sale!) from Cstudio Home and it’s perfect for me and my oven-of-a-husband (ok I’m an oven too).
True, most of this makeover is a series of subtle tweaks. What can I say? We’re still in a rental after all. But this modest assortment of new things has me feeling right as rain. Until I get the itch to change it again that is... ;)
And on that note, that’s officially a wrap on the 2017 Furniture Flip Bucket List! After two years of late finishes, it feels good to cross the finish line with a month to spare. I’ve already begun percolating what I want to tackle in 2018 so stay tuned for next year’s list come January!
Seven down, zero to go. Catch up on the 2017 Furniture Flip Bucket List.
