Affordable Bedroom Update

My master bedroom was one of the last rooms to get touched after our move in.

We already had bedroom furniture for one, but also our strategy was to design the most visible rooms first.

But the bedroom is probably the room I spend the most time in, and it was making me sad. However the final straw was just deciding that our squeaky bed was ruining my sleep and shopping for a new bed.

Then things get started from there.


The first thing I changed was my bedding. I love the look of scalloped quilts and decided to go for it.

I loved the feel of our linen duvet cover, but it got hot at night and always looked wrinkled.

I found this one from Overstock.

Throw Pillows

I’ve mentioned it before in this post, textiles are a great way to bring in patterns and colors to your room.

I spent some time shopping around and found this beautiful vintage Waverly fabric on Etsy and it really inspired the whole room.

I also used my embroidery/sewing machine to make these monogrammed pillows. This is so special because this is the monogram we used for our wedding and I love having them around the house.

The curtains were one of the trickiest elements when it came to restyling this room.

I had a specific blue in mind that I wanted for these curtains and searched high and low.

Of course I ended up finding something on Amazon. I was worried about buying online because colors on screen show up differently in person, but these ended up perfect.

I then decided to pleat them, and I detailed the process in the post below

Upholstery for Bench

I’ve had a brown upholstered storage bench for almost two years and was about to get rid of it when I realized how easy it would be to recover.

I was browsing home décor fabric at Joann’s and this fabric was a perfect match. In store it was on sale for $5 a yard and I only needed two yards so this project only cost $10.


How far would you go for something you love? Apparently I would go five hours round trip.

I found these nightstands using some of my favorite keywords for FBMP.

I finally got around to painting them white last weekend and I replaced the knobs with Lo Home knobs. I am so happy with how they turned out.

Another fantastic Facebook Marketplace find. Although they are originally from Amazon and can be found here.

It pays to be quick in your response and polite. I messaged the seller and she had five people interested ahead of me.

I didn’t expect to get them but I was polite when I messaged her and was ready to drop everything and come get them.

Finally, the biggest piece to the puzzle is the bed.

We’ve needed a new bed for a while now. Our old one was metal and made too much noise.

After months of searching I found this one on Wayfair for less than $200 and I love it.

I decided to go with white and I am glad I did. White makes it easy to match and to change the room if I ever want to in the future. Plus it looks so crisp and clean.

So what do you think?

Not bad for a quick little “update” and it was pretty affordable as well. This space makes me so happy
