Welcome to the long awaited room tour! Goodness gracious this post took a while to get up. I have been wanting to write this for weeks!
Guys, you are going to love the before and after. SQUEEE it’s so pretty!! It looks like a totally different room. Are you ready? Here we go!
Isn’t that simply amazing? Both of those pictures were taken at the same spot, but they look completely different!
We had 30 year old wallpaper in our room, so we had to take down the wallpaper, plaster over nicks in the walls, sand the plaster, then paint the ceiling, trim, and walls. It was a lot of work – it took a whole week – but it was so worth it! I absolutely love the paint color and the decorations!
A few notes before we proceed to the room tour: I didn’t list the prices for every single thing in our room, just most of the stuff we got recently. Also, the prices are rounded.
Now we can get to the good part! Let us begin with the bed section. First off, I love the bedspreads! They are simple but beautiful, and their simplicity makes them versatile. (If you’re wondering, my bed is on the left and Megan’s is on the right.)
Bedspreads // $27 each – Target (Note: I rounded all of these prices. )
These lovely pillows tie in our canvasses and handmade quilts with the bedspreads.
Watercolor Flower Pillow // $7 – Hobby Lobby
Bird Pillow // $10 – Hobby Lobby
I’m very proud of our upcycled wooden crate. XD It was broken and rough to begin with, so we wood-glued it together, cleaned it, sanded it, and painted it. It works perfectly as a bedside stand!
White Flower Wall Hanging// $8.50- Hobby Lobby
Lampshade // $5.50 – Walmart
Lampstand // $12 – Walmart
Crate Bedside Stand // DIY
Megan and I each decorated a canvas to put above our beds. The first canvas is mine and the second is Megan’s. 😉 I painted mine with watercolor and gesso and wrote in the words with Sharpie and marker. Since Megan’s canvas had more words, we printed them out in a nice font and transferred them to the canvas using this tutorial. (The pencil rubbing part is the transferring part.) Then Megan Sharpied over the words and added confetti from the paint chips we collected while searching for a paint color.

We got some really nice ombre curtains from Walmart. They’re opaque enough that we don’t need blinds, but they’re also sheer enough to let in light. And if you’re wondering, that speck in the hanging plant is a little stuffed owl. XD
(Sorry about the really bad lighting here. 😦 )
Curtains // $10 per panel – Walmart
Feather Print // $16- Hobby Lobby
Bonsai Tree // $12- Walmart
Hanging Plant // $16 – Walmart
The mantel is one of my favorite spots. I adore the fox print especially! We spray painted the flowerpots gold to add a extra pop.
Fern // $5.00 – Walmart
Fox Print // $22 – Hobby Lobby
Ivy // $5.00 – Walmart
I also love this next spot. It’s sophisticated yet cozy. The white faux-fur cube is one of my favorite purchases – it’s a comfortable seat and a storage chest!
Funny story: My littlest sister was writing a wish list while we went shopping, and she wrote “fuse cyoob” for the fuzzy cube seat. Isn’t that adorable? You have to love little kid spelling. XD
(Horrible pictures again, I know. )
Faux Fur Cube // $50 – Ross
Bible Verse Canvas // $12 – Hobby Lobby
Mini Palm // $10 – Home Depot
Purple Swirl Canvas // DIY
Moving on to the dresser… The bunting banner I made myself (remember this tutorial?), and I also hand-decorated the gold rocks around our room. We spray painted smooth river rocks gold, then I either hand lettered words on them with Sharpie, or dotted them with white paint. They turned out really well!
Bird Canvas Set // $4 each – Walmart
Orchid // $13 – Home Depot
Mint Clock // $10 – Walmart
Succulents (in the blue pot) // $4-$5 each?? – Home Depot
Bunting Banner // DIY

And lastly but not leastly, we needed some new rugs since we took our big blue carpet away. Behold!
Chevron Rug // $16 – Walmart
Teal Rugs // $19.50 each – Walmart
And thus concludes my room tour! I hope you enjoyed it! Are you going to redecorate your room anytime soon? Have you redecorated recently? What was your favorite part of our “new” room?
P. S. WordCrafters 2 is coming right along! Nicole just recently finished her chapter – read it here. Hmm, Katri seems more and more suspicious, isn’t she? I had no idea!
