Bedroom Refresh Update!

 This had been a work in progress for so longgggg. Sometimes we have a mission to decorate something, a vision on how we see a room, but its okay to take your time on getting there. Furniture is expensive especially quality items, that wont break down on you and that will age well with you too!

Our original set was from IKEA, and let me say wow its lasted for 8+ years and was super cost effective but we wanted a new style a bit brighter to open up the space some more!

First we did a bed swap, we went from this bed:

IKEA Malm queen bed frame in black/brown


To this bed:

Fort Calhoun Tufted Upholstered Low Profile Platform Bed Queen

This opened up our room a lot! The lighter color really make our bedroom look so much bigger and brighter which is exactly what we needed! Next I had painted an accent wall, I originally was thinking wallpaper but I had a moment of creativity and went out and bought paint and just started. I’m not a good painter, I’ve only done it 2 other times but I have to say I was so proud of myself on how this wall came out!

Next, we needed a new dresser, so I looked and looked and looked and found one that fit the space perfectly! The navy blue matched the wall, had gold accents with the hardware as well, it was the same style but also smaller which was needed!

And Finally we both needed desks, but we currently live in a one bedroom apartment so our bedroom is our offices too, we had to make it functional yet also be able to grow with us when we move. So we choose these two desks:

I’m waiting on the grey desk and a desk chair or be able to take the final photos but I’m so excited with how this project is turning out! Now I do want to say none of this is sponsored and had taken me over a year to complete with the some pieces going in on Friday and I’m still on a hunt for end tables and lamps
Take your time picking out furniture, its okay if it doesn’t match right away! You need to make sure you love it and furniture is expensive so don’t settle if you get something and then hate it, check your return policies before you buy! Also shop around, we found the dresser 3 different places and wayfair happened to be cheaper!
