Bedroom Makeover: The Reveal

|
I'm so excited to finally share my bedroom reveal with you! Like I said in my inspiration post, I was sponsored by Wayfair to redecorate my space, and I couldn't be happier with the results! Keep scrolling to see before and after photos, all the products I purchased, and what I still want to get!

My before picture isn't the greatest--I was so excited to get everything set up that I forgot to take some proper pictures of the space! But you can tell from this picture that I didn't have a headboard, and I only had one "night stand", which was just the Ikea Alex drawers. They are great for holding all of your junk, but they're massive and take up so much space.  I really wanted something smaller and more streamlined.

Despite the inspiration pictures I had found, I actually ordered this bed first, after seeing it on Pinterest. I absolutely loved the look of it, but I just didn't think it went with my room or my taste. The Lark Manor Cavaillon Panel Bed was gorgeous, sturdy and very easy to put together, but it just felt too large in my small room. I think had it just been the headboard, then I would have kept it, but the footboard needed to be attached and it made the space between my dresser and bed too tight. 


Before we get into things, there are a few topics I want to talk about. I was tentative to order furniture online, which I'm sure a lot of you can relate to. I had only ever purchased Ikea furniture before and that involved going to a store, seeing the items first, testing the quality, and comparing them to the online pictures. I was nervous that I would order furniture online and have it show up and be entirely different than what I was expecting. But I was so pleasantly surprised when all of my Wayfair orders arrived because the three things I purchased looked exactly like their pictures.  

Wayfair also has so many customer reviews on each product so you can do your research ahead of time and see what other people liked and didn't like about the product before you commit. Because of this, I felt confident going into my purchase that I had all the answers I was looking for. And they also have an amazing return policy, which was what I was also really worried about, especially after ordering and wanting to return the metal bed. You can schedule a free pick up for items and receive the full value of the item back on store credit. I scheduled a pick up on Sunday, the FedEx truck came Monday, and by Monday night, I had the credit on my account. That's insanely quick customer service! 

For my second round of purchasing, I knew I wanted to keep it simple and go back to the inspiration photos I had originally sourced. I went with the Mercury Row Zoe Upholstered Panel Headboard in Linen in the full/queen. Because my mattress is a full, you can see a bit of the black panelling peeking out at the side, but it doesn't bother me that much. One day I'll be able to get a queen size bed and it will completely cover it. It's such a gorgeous, transition piece that way, and it was under $250 Canadian! 

I also ordered two of the Cupcakes and Cashmere Stick 22 Table Lamp's to go along with my new West Elm Penelope Bedside Tables. I was afraid they would look too little girl-ish with the pink bases, but I freaking love them. They're so streamlined and classy and are the perfect size for the tables and the perfect height for the headboard. Lastly, I purchased a new duvet cover from H&M Home. Their prices are so reasonable, and the bedding always washes up amazingly. I've had 3-4 pieces from the bedding collection and have loved all of them. 

Now that I've explained all the new items in the room, keep scrolling to see them all in action!

I love the detail work on this headboard! It looks so much more expensive than it is.

The subtle lace on the duvet cover is gorgeous, and elevate an otherwise plain white bedspread.

I'm so happy with all the products that I choose and with how my room looks. Next, I really want a new storage unit to replace the dresser that I've had for 23 years. While I think I'll miss having the top to display books and my TV, I'm really looking forward to getting a taller cabinet to keep books, sweaters and all kinds of things in. I hope you like my space as much as I do and leave a comment below telling me what your favourite thing is!
