I decided quite a while back I wanted to makeover the spare room. I had done it a couple of years ago but never quite liked how the room was arranged so a few months ago I started rearranging the furniture and trying the bed in a different position and this then of course led on to a whole Pink and Grey bedroom makeover.
The room was already pink (you can see all the before pictures in this post) and so I added a dark grey feature wall behind the bed and chose B&Q’s own matt paint in the shade Grey Slate.
As a feature on the wall I opted for a thin picture ledge from IKEA with a mix of framed prints. I love Etsy for things for the home like prints, they have an incredible choice of style and designs. I also found on Etsy some pretty zig zag fabric to make cushions with.
I chose fabric as I have a wonderful friend who is sooo good at making cushions and she very kindly made me three. The fabric cost £14 including postage and there was enough for 3 standard size cushions which is such good value.
The larger cushions were from BHS and are a lovely dusky pink velvet. My cute gold and marble bedside table is actually an IKEA hack and I’ll be showing you this and two other ways you can make over this bargain little table on the blog next Sunday.
The little gold glass box is from the H&M home range and is one of my favorite pieces in the whole room. I sprayed cheap IKEA frames white and gold for my picture shelf and added gold stripes to the white frame with a bit of clever masking tape.
I also gave several of my candles and ornaments a gold makeover with a simple spray of enamel paint including the frame of my husbands favourite picture over the fireplace, just to help it tie into the theme. The cute hexagonal mirror was a steal at The Range for £7.99 and I gave the wood frame a prime and a spray gold to make it look just that little bit more luxe. The chest of drawers are a cheap set from IKEA which had sat in another room.
I gave them a lick of paint which was a mix of white eggshell and the grey feature wall colour.
Six gold cup pull style handles from eBay give the drawers a more expensive look and the whole thing a new lease of life don’t you think? I decided to paint the whole floor white and I’m so glad I did, its made the room lighter and brighter and also look much bigger.
