Bedroom makeover! Bright & light, with vintage dresser, DIYs, and beautiful new bedding
I've been working on some upgrades to our bedroom since around Christmas when I bought this beautiful vintage dresser, swapped out our lamps, and traded out our matching painted nightstands for another DIY and a vintage one. But this past weekend, I completed the makeover with some more re-arranging and repurposing plus some beautiful new bedding from Garnet Hill! (They provided me some of their new spring bedding in exchange for my review.)
Our bedroom has gone through several changes since we moved in to our new townhome a few years back, but for the most part it's looked a lot like this. Pastels, soft shapes, vintage shiny painted matching nightstands, matching white lamps... it was a little too girly and delicate for me now (although I do still absolutely love this DIY painting I did). I'd played with several different art pieces and DIYs above the bed, actually (the black/white windowpane ribbon canvases, the gold initials), but I keep going back to the gold 60's-ey sunburst mirror. As you'll see from other "before"s, the room was much darker with darker curtains and bedding, no matter what pretty pillows and art I put with the bed. So this time I realized I needed to do something more drastic, and I switched out our very dark grey curtains for lighter grey linen-ey weave ones, and switches the bedding to almost all white.
Back on the opposite wall... I totally redid the top of my dresser. I love the vintage dresser I recently bought when I sold our big black Ikea Malm! Plus, adding the plants brightens up a previously unused corner.
