About a year ago I gave Preston, my oldest son a bedroom refresh thinking it would be the last time since he was 17. However, it never quite sat right with me. If you have been following along then you know at one time my entire home was decorated in Farmhouse Style, but it really doesn’t fit the style of our home.
Don’t worry! Not more than $150 was spent on this room. If you’ve been following me for some time then you know that I flip furniture in order to fund my decorating habits! I sold his old bed frame for $150 (originally purchased on Craigslist for $60 and then painted) his Ikea dresser, rug and bedding. Actually I was ahead of the game. His room is small so I had to maximize the space.
The first thing I do when planning a room is create a mood board on Canva.
One of the things my son requested with this refresh was a low profile/platform bed. If you saw his Farmhouse Style bedroom, the bed was really tall!
I’m very lucky that he doesn’t care how is room is decorated or the art work I select, but I do honor his wishes with keeping some of his favorite pictures and mementos displayed.
Just a reminder what the closet doors looked like before
Due to photo editing (which I’m not the best at) the colors of the rug are distorted. Here is a true un-edited view of the rug. This is the Loloi Teracotta Skye rug. I have 5 Loloi’s in my house and love them! They are screen print and have no pile.
