Reveal: Spare Room/Dressing Room

May 22, 2015

As promised, I'm sharing our second spare room reveal today! Wow - it really feels great to have these two rooms completed with fresh new and inspiring looks. There's only so much renovation chaos a girl can handle and I was getting pretty close to reaching my max. Yes, we are starting another major reno in the next few weeks but, at least I will have these 2 rooms, plus the main floor, as a sanctuary away from the mess progress.

As a reminder, here's the room before. A great sized room with lots of natural light but 
WAY. TOO. MUCH. PINK. (not to mention the curtains!)

Having removed the carpet, the curtains, painting the walls and installing new hardwood flooring and crown moulding - here is the after!

This old dresser was actually my first DIY. It was handed down to me by my mother and was originally finished with stained wood. I painted it black, distressed it and added the fancy drawer pulls. It's followed me around from house to house since I moved out of my parents and is one of my favourite pieces.

To add a little sparkle and glam to the dressing area I added some branches wrapped in clear lights. They add great ambiance plus a little bit of rustic to this otherwise feminine room.

Since this room is serving two purposes, dressing room & spare room, I decided to create more of a lounge/day bed feel with the bed. By not having a headboard and styling the bed with a great big comfy pile of pillows, the bed can be used just for hanging out, watching movies or reading; without feeling too much like you're actually in bed.

I've been using this space now for about a week and am absolutely loving it. Having a dressing room all to myself (even if only temporarily) is delightful. If you don't have the space to allocate a full room to your closet and accessories, try creating a little nook in your existing bedroom that you can at least call your own - hang some fun girly artwork, put a nice, plush rug on the floor and hang a glam mirror. 

That's it for today! Have a lovely creative weekend!
