Bedroom Makeover

Our Master bedroom needed a face lift so I’m going to share with you how we did just that. Enjoy!

I obviously had some ideas on what I was after but sometimes when you just keep these ideas in your head you can get a little lost or side tracked when buying your items and all of a sudden end up with a bit of a mixture of themes that don’t quiet go together.
Which brings me to my first step MOOD BOARD.

Create a mood board.
Whether it be saving images on your phone and putting them into a folder or cutting out images from magazines and hanging them on a board. I created mine in word and just copy and pasted the images that I liked.
Do it your own creative way.
Here is my mood board below. I created this before I started and before purchasing anything.

Bedroom Mood Board

As you can see I’m going for a Scandic Country feel of calmness, simplicity, natural with added textures.


A little sneak at what the room looked like before the makeover.

Preparing the room

Firstly we removed everything out of the room.
I sold what we didn’t need/want on Gumtree including our bed! Which meant we slept on a blow up mattress while we waited for our bed to arrive for approx a week. Big mistake while pregnant!!
We then built the half wall (see below).
I then washed all the walls with sugar soap in preparation for painting.

Our comfortable but uncomfortable after a week blow up mattress.

Building the nib wall

This was a challenge in itself as neither of us have any experience with building at all but super happy with how it turned out and sending all the credit to hubby on this one, well done babe 🙂

All the materials are from Bunnings. The wall panels are the EasyVJ panels, which we cut to size.


A fresh coat of paint always brings the life back to any old room. I painted all walls including the EasyVJ in Dulux Cotton Ball.

As anytime when building and/or creating a space it takes time. Especially over the Covid pandemic and add kids into the mix too.
You have to wait for products to be in stock or get made. So be patient nothing happens over night. This took us a couple a good weeks from start to finish.

Laundry Makeover

The laundry WAS my least liked room in the house, mostly because it’s filled with washing 100% of the time. It’s the one chore that just never ends. No matter how quick you are at folding and putting away (and let me promise you I am not very quick) you can never NEVER be on…

Office Organisation

When we built this house we put a lot of thought into designing our office. Hubby is a pilot and spends a lot of time in the office, and now with me writing this is where most of my time is spent when not doing the mum thing! We wanted a functional space as well…

Luca’s nursery

Time has flown, my little boy is 6 months already and with that he has outgrown his bassinet, the truth is he may have outgrown it a little while back but I have been in denial about moving him into his own room. I can honestly say that I just want to hold onto every…
