It’s Finally Here! My Bedroom Reveal!!!

To a tour of my newly renovated bedroom. 
I’ve tried for the life of me to find some before pictures, but I painted this bedroom 4 yrs ago, before I blogged, and although we found pictures of the rest of the house pre-reno, I guess the bedroom didn’t get photographed much. (Although I distinctly remember seeing a picture of a kid in a playpen in the room….so I’ll keep looking.) 
Anyways, it was originally sponge painted a mint green and sky blue…and when I say sky blue…it couldn’t have been BLUER! Even the window trim and baseboards were sky blue..and the ceiling! The vanity area and the bathroom were a dark and light brown that were also sponge painted and there was a sand castle boarder adorning the top of the wall… as you’ll see, this was quite a change.
I’ve had the room painted for 4 yrs (only because the bright blue/green sponge paint job was somewhat difficult to sleep with every night), but I had literally lived with the window seals 1/2 painted, 1/2 finished everything, tape still on, and huge gaps where the previous owners had taken off the quarter round for carpet, for four years. It’s funny how we put our bedrooms off! Then a couple challenges came along (Imagine the Impossibilities and the First Project of 2012, which you can see at the bottom of the post) and I thought, yep, I better finish up that bedroom!
The 1st year, I took the carpet out and re-did the wood floors myself, and painted.
2nd year I found some of this bedding and added the chandelier. The tables I also found, but redid them last week. You can see that here. 
This is my favorite wall. I started this gold frame picture collauge last summer, but didn’t have any matting, frames painted, or pictures in it until the last 2 weeks. I LOVE it!!!
The fire place was a Christmas present to ourselves 2 years ago (Costco). I LOVE it also. It and the lamp shades are the only things in the room not found either 90% off, from Craigslist the Goodwill or a yard sale.
 This is the most cozy place in my world. I get up, before the kids with a cup of coffee, that cozy throw and my bible and computer…..I could stay there forever!
I recovered the chair and made the pillows last week also (told you it has been a crazy week!). Tutorial on my tassel edged and the Union Jack inspired pillows to come!
This is my bed. Everything in the room is a Goodwill find, a Craigslist find, a yard sale find, or on super clearance at Walmart. I honestly think the lamp shades and the fireplace are the only exceptions. You can find a run down of where I acquired just about everything in this picture here.  Don’t you just love the owl pictures from the GW. They have names written underneath…Winky and Blinky!
Another bed picture.
So, you’ve seen one side of the room. If you turn you’ll see the vanity area, walk-in closet and a teeny, tiny bathroom. This house is a 1948 ranch. If you google Alphabet houses in Richland WA. You can read about how the entire town was built by the government in four years for the Manhatten Project (to build the Atomic Bomb).  It’s incredible history. The original owners took one of the upstairs bedrooms (you know those tiny bedrooms in old houses that aren’t really even bedrooms) and turned it into this vanity/walk-in-closet/bathroom area. GREAT idea!
Here’s one more bed shot from the hallway.
My little plant and recovered books.
This is my Junk Art Wall. You can read about it Here. I found both the mattress wall art and the table below it along side the road.
Pictures of my husband and I, my kids and my grandma on her wedding day.
This area I do have before pics of…..somewhere. I’ll have to find them, but I’m excited, so I’m posting this without them. This was the wooden light fixture box, wooden 3 hinged mirror, and dual brown sponge painted area….with the sand castle boarder 🙂   Can you believe I found these mirrors for $3.95 each at Lowes when I lived in HI??!!  They must have priced them wrong. I bought ALL of them (I think there were 6 left at the time), sold some, and have hauled these around for 4 years lol! Now they look great in their new home.
I’ll do a tutorial on how I refinished the cabinets later.
My little grouping of things from yard sales/ GW. The middle one is candle sticks stuck together.
You can see I how I made my Junk to Jewelry holder here. 
My DIY wall art out of clearance picture frames that I made last week. You can see the tutorial here. 
So, I’m soooo excited to have this finished! I’m glad that I had some good “challenges” to link up to, in order to keep me going! (you can read about them below).  Thanks for stopping by on my room tour!



  1. Hi Katie, I saw your room the other day at a link party. Beautiful and even more stunned at looking at all the details. Very well put together and my kind of gal (finding on the side of the road!)
    ~Tami @ Curb Alert!

  2. Whoa Nellie! I almost burned my cookies in the oven because I was so involved looking at your redo that I didn’t even hear the timer go off! LOL! Thank goodness I like them a little brown! You have really done a marvelous job decorating on a budget. It’s easy to go out and buy new and decorate. And I see those blogs and almost laugh…anyone can do that! But to be able to get by on sales, roadside finds and thrift store bargains and create a space as beautiful and restful as you have….now that’s TALENT! And girlfriend…you’ve got it! Congratulations on a job not just well done but done with love and caring and it shows. Can’t wait to see more! You’re inspiring!
    Thanks for taking the time to share it with the rest of us.

  3. I am so jealous! I found your link via Family Ever After, and your room is absolutely stunning. You are amazingly talented!!

  4. Beautiful room Katie! Makes up for the socks!

  5. It’s gorgeous! It has such a luxe look to it. Well done!!! Found you on A Blonde’s DIY Life party 🙂

  6. Katie, it’s beautiful! I just love all of it, but my favorite part is the cozy chair by the fireplace for your private morning devotionals. What a great place! I can imagine what a retreat that is–and I only have 3 kids!

  7. Such a beautiful room….a wonderful oasis! 😀

  8. Huge job, you pulled everything together so well. Its has been nice having peeks as you posted your projects over the past little while. Congratulations.

    Rhonda @ home.made.

  12. I love how it is traditional and elegant, yet modern with the paint color. I love your style. It is fantastic. I’m inspired for sure! What kind of curtain panels are those? They drape so well. It all looks expensive!

  13. Gorgeous! Thanks for linking up!

  14. Lovely! Beautiful and tranquil and stylish…you nailed it! Now you have motivated me to work on my master bedroom!

  16. Beautiful!! What a relaxing room to spend time it. I love it! And that last picture is very cool, great photography.

  17. Katie – Such a beautiful room. You’ve definitely inspired me. Great job.


  18. Katie,
    Wow, what a transformation from sponge painting!
    Five other blog buddies and I are having an “Imagine the Impossibilities” challenge and link party where we have each challenged ourselves to complete one thing by January 31st that seems “Impossible”. We are inviting our readers to join the challenge as well.

    I’d love for you to check out my introductory post explaining what we are doing and have you link up your bedroom transformation!
    Mark your calendar for the Tuesday, Jan 31 link party!
    The following week, each of our 6 blogs will be featuring 5 favorites! Hope to see you there.

  24. Wow – amazing!! I love the muted, relaxing color palette. And I’m so jealous of your lovely sitting area with fireplace! I’d like to put an electric fireplace in our basement, it just seems so cozy. Your bathroom is gorgeous, too. It’s a shame that our bedrooms are one of the most neglected rooms in the house, just because other people don’t see them all the time!

    Found your link from the Homemaker on a Dime party. 🙂

  25. That is absolutely beautiful! I love everything about it….from your color palette to that khaki and white pillow….kudos to you! Thanks for joining our challenge!

  46. I LOVE it!! New follower coming over from Homemaker in Heels. Your bedroom colors are very close to mine. We moved into our house a year ago and our bedroom still has nothing on the walls, no curtains and no style what-so-ever. It’s sadly the last no the list of rooms to get done but thanks for the great ideas. I can’t wait for yard sale season again. The winter just kills me!

  47. It all looks so great! I love it. Especially the Union Jack. The bathroom looks great, too!

  48. Congrats on completing your “impossible” project. I’ll be linking up my sectional slipcover at the parties tomorrow and can’t wait to see all the other projects. Your bedroom & bathroom look amazing! I love all of the colors and accessories. So clever to hang three smaller mirrors in the bathroom. I’d love it if you’d share this at my Show & Tell linkup party and giveaway going on now @ the Delectable Home.

  49. It is so so pretty!!!! I have to makeover my room this year and yours is giving me some ideas – I especially like your color combos. The fireplace is super cute!

  50. Id love a room like this but I adopted ugly man furniture from the Mr…I swear one day he will come home and it will be gone so I can trandform it into something wonderful like this!!! How much do those fireplaces cost..I would love one in the livingroom and bedroom 🙂

  51. Wonderful room. I can see how it would be your favorite place! I love the color palette and the classic furnishing.

  52. Beautiful job, Katie! Wow! It looks like something out of a chic magazine, girl! 🙂

    xoxo laurie

  79. What a warm and inviting space!

  80. Well done, everything is beautiful. ~Cindy

  81. Wow just found your blog…your house is BEAUTIFUL!!!


  82. Wow. I love your bedroom. The wall color is gorgeous. I also live in a town with “alphabet” houses. Also part of the Manhattan project. Oak Ridge, TN. I’ve been in many of them and they have so much character. Ours is a 60’s ranch, not an alphabet house. Kind of a small world, I guess!

  83. This is truly gorgeous. Can’t even imagine the green and blues walls with matching woodwork and ceilings! The floors are amazing, and the overall feel of the room is so restful and pretty. I love your style and the mix in of interesting, unexpected elements. I love using otherwise useful things like hanging guitars as decor.

  84. gorgeous and magazine worthy! love your wing chair in the corner and that repurposed crib mattress spring on the wall. way to go, tackling this all yourself and for implementing thrifty finds that look like they are so much more expensive!!

  85. Really, really pretty! Nice to finally get it done I bet. I love that you choose to be thrifty! That’s my favorite challenge…using creativity to make what I want instead of spending a bunch of money.

  86. This looks amazing!! I’m in the middle of redoing my bedroom. We love what you have done! Thanks for linking up with “Strut Your Stuff Saturday.” We loved having you and hope you’ll be back next Saturday to share more terrific ideas! -The Sisters

  87. Gorgeous Bedroom and bathroom transformation! I have never visited your blog before, but I am so impressed by your projects. I am visiting via the Impossibility challenge. You definitely made the impossible possible. Nice job!

I hope you can pop over to Cottage and Creek and follow back and enter my first ever Choose Joy Giveaway. I enjoyed my visit. Have a great week.

  101. Oh Katie, I can’t take it….I’m so jealous!! I SO want to do my master, but you’re right. The master gets put off. But, wow, this was worth the wait, don’t you think??

  137. Anonymous says:

    I love your bedroom Katie! It is absolutely gorgeous! The color is just so soothing… I need it, haha!! You don’t happen to remember the name do you? I saw a similar color on an HGTV special a few years ago, but have never run across a close match when shopping for samples. It’s just beautiful… almost a silvery, gray-blue. You did such a wonderful job 🙂


  138. Just gorgeous, thanks so much for linking up to Vintage Inspiration Friday, love the branch with the birdie!!

  139. I, like so many others, just LOVE your room reveal!! I featured it today on Link It Up Thursday. Fell free to stop by and grab a button if you would like.

  140. Katie! So fun to see this featured at Days of Chalk and Chocolate! I still love every details.
    And, I got on signed up on the new linky tool It’d be great if you wanted to come by and follow me back!

  141. This is so gorgeous! Thank you so much for linking up to Fabulous Friday. I featured you today.

  142. i can see how you could stay in your bedroom forever. I would too 🙂

  143. I found your blog from the feature on 5 Days/5 Ways, and just about spit out my drink when I read “alphabet houses”! I’m Richland born and raised (3rd generation Bomber!), and have lived in an F and a B house in my lifetime. Amazing what a “small world” this internet can be sometimes!

    • Wonderful! It is a small world! lol. These houses are old, but built well and still have some character. If you read the comments above, there was someone else who commented that she also lived in a government built alphabet house in another part of the country. Her town was also built for bomb construction about the same time! So interesting!


    • Forgot to mention…I think the F houses are my favorite. From the outside anyways 🙂

  144. I love this space. It looks so relaxing.

  145. Fabulous! If you don’t mind my asking…what is the lovely paint color on your walls here?

  146. Thank you Ella, I am not sure of the paint color, unfortunately. It was a paint that was miss-paint, and I mixed it with another paint.


  147. You can certainly see your skills in the paintings you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

  148. Hi there very cool blog!! Man .. Excellent .. Wonderful .. I’ll bookmark your web site and take the feeds additionally?I am satisfied to seek out a lot of useful info here in the put up, we need work out extra techniques on this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .

  149. Hi katie, I just found your yarned lamp shade via pinterest and LOVED it! so I starte clicking around your blog, found this post and I am IN love with your bedroom! It looks amazing girl! Im super inspired to go makeover our bedroom now thanks! xo Jenn
