When the flood came through my home this was one of the rooms that was injured the most. This bedroom had the bed beneath the window and because the flood came through the windows the mattress acted as a sponge and then when that was full it overflowed onto the carpet. There was a little water damage to the drywall beneath the window and we had to patch that a bit. Pretty much this room was recreated from head to toe! I started with a blank slate and this is what I ended up with!
We redid the floors with a wood laminate, painted the walls, furniture and bought a new bed.
The bookcase used to be black and so did the small hutch under the mirror.
I moved one of the recliners in this room and painted the star a cream color.
Here is the bed! I decided on one that had some shelves in the top because there is not a lot of room for night stands when the bed is facing this way.
I made some new pillows. The sleep and dream pillows were actually some old pillows that I had and I took them apart and used this canvas which was the back of the old pillow. I used a brown sharpie pen and just started writing all I could think about sleeping and dreaming onto the pillow.. I then embroidered sleep and dream over the top. The small pillow is a Vera Wang knock off and is made by just sewing little circles to one end of the pillow.
I saw the book idea at Restoration Hardware and loved it. Do your remember that I got rid of a bunch of books from my library? Well, I could have used them for this project! These are just some paperback novels that I ripped the covers off and tied a piece of twine around them.(WARNING) Don't do this to books that you want to keep because it kind of ruins the book, but it looks cool for unwanted books!
Here is a close up of the pillows.
See, just round circles sewn onto the pillow.
I had some old music that I framed to put above the bed.
The mirror is an old dresser mirror painted and distressed.
Here is a better view of the wood floors, I am loving having them in my basement!
I'm loving the results!
The books on this table were wrapped in craft paper, so if you don't want to ruin your books just wrap them in any paper and tie them up with some twine.
We are using the book case for our DVD library.
It has been a long process getting my basement back to working order but I am loving the results!
