I have no idea how to knock-off room makeovers in a week or two. Even a 30-day challenge would be a HUGE stretch for me. In addition, my rooms RARELY turn out exactly like I envision. Instead, ideas change and evolve depending on what salvaged pieces I find and grow attached to. The process of acquiring and painting pieces, repurposing and restyling what I already have, collecting thrift art, knick-knacks and trying my hand at LIVE houseplants again (unfortunately a few haven’t made it), it’s all part of the fun. 🙂
Today’s summer Salvaged Style Bedroom Makeover is no different. It’s been almost a year of tinkering – but I can finally say this room is SO ME! I’m officially smitten with how it’s all come together and can’t wait to share the entire before and after with you.
Here’s what I started with. The wallpaper from the previous owner was still up and the room hadn’t been painted or decorated since I originally moved in.
A BIG difference to this bright and airy AFTER, right?!
It’s definitely a cleaner more spacious modern look, don’t you think?
For the cost of paint, faux brick material, and a few new items like the lighting, throw pillows, 2 new mirrors, and a few plants, this room looks totally different.

You may remember I was using the mandala stenciled night table but I switched back to the original wallpapered nightstand. I find this one fits perfectly without blocking the door to the crawl space/cedar closet.
I love the contrast between the furniture and clean white walls.
This mirror was bought at HomeSense and the easel it sits on is so old I don’t even remember where I bought it from. Pairing them together makes for a perfect dressing mirror.
And check out this whimsy art which adds a pop of color. Old thrift store frames were used to scale it up and create the illusion of a larger piece.
This HIS and HER French Bull Dog duo puts a smile on my face – quirky – just like me.
I’ve been collecting thrift art the last couple of years and have incorporated pieces throughout the room. Florals and botanicals are my favorite. They add cheery summer color to the room.
I added a mix of live and faux Ikea greenery. I’m going to do my darndest at keeping them alive and well.
The elephants were found at a flea market for $20!… I couldn’t resist.
It’s not something I think about daily, but I’m so grateful for my home and this space. As I write this, I’m sitting on my comfy bed with a green tea beside me and the morning light pouring in. All these salvaged finds that have been repurposed and reloved to create this room, I feel comfortable and at home in. This room really reflects ME… and I’m so happy I get to share it with you!
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a spectacular day my friends. I’ll be back next week with another curb-shopped furniture find and makeover. It doesn’t look like much now but it’s going to be a cutie. XO
