Simple Ways to Make Over Your Bedroom

Does anyone else feel like their bedroom is a neglected space? Ours was becoming that, so I decided to change it up a little bit. I didn't want to spend too much as we're planning on changing rooms in less than a year once Calvin gets a little older. 

One big change that makes an impact on your bedroom is the comforter! That was the only thing I purchased for this room make over and it changes the room a ton! The comforter set is from the A&I brand that's exclusively at Shopko. Gray is totally in and the gray and white pattern really brighten up the room. You can get $10 off your $30 purchase at Shopko when you sign up for their email newsletter.

The second big thing that can change a room is just de-cluttering! Our headboard is a book case, but it gets messy quickly. I took most all of the books out and put them in a small storage tote and it just makes the area look so much more fresh.

Another great idea when making over a bedroom is to re-purpose things you already have. We had gray curtains in a downstairs spare bedroom and I thought they would be an easy swap, but once I installed them, I realized they were too short. So what did I do?

I took the two pillow shams that came with the comforter set and added them to the curtains as a ruffle for extra length. I cut the shams in half an pinned them on temporarily. If I end up liking this set up, I may sew them on permanently, but for now, its a no cost re-purpose that works!

And last, sometimes even after a good de-clutter session, closing the closet door makes everything seem more fresh and put together. I cleaned up my little desk area, but my closet is a journey for another day. Just closing the door makes me breathe a big sigh of relief.

I did the whole make over in about one hour one evening, and when Wesley and Calvin came in to check it out, they both exclaimed it looked BEAUTIFUL and then promptly started jumping on the bed. Gotta love those kiddos!

I feel so much better about our bedroom now. My big dream, when we move rooms in the spring, is to get new bedroom furniture, upgrade to a king size bed, and more, but for now, this little make over brings peace to the chaos.
