MODERN BOHO BEDROOM MAKEOVER

Wow! This bedroom makeover has been a whirlwind in the best way. My friend asked me to come help her install a green board and batten wall and it morphed into this amazing full bedroom makeover. The furniture pieces are all family heirlooms, so we didn’t touch those but everything else got a total facelift. I incorporated some bright, fun pieces since she loves color and funky items and the final result is absolutely perfect for her.

We painted every surface – the walls, ceiling, trim, and doors – and then we added shiplap to the ceiling. It was a little trickier than adding it to a wall (what with the ceiling being above your head and all), but I absolutely love it in this tray ceiling. I used plywood just like I did in this project. We also replaced the fan with this super budget-friendly more modern one.

Walls : BM Balboa Mist
Ceiling : SW Alabaster
Accent Wall : BM Cushing Green

And here’s a link to the rug I put under the bed. It was less than $60 when I got it – wahoo!

Now onto my favorite part – the feature wall. Is anyone surprised? You know I love a good board and batten wall. This is the third one I’ve installed (check out mine here and find a tutorial for it here, then find the one I put in my parents’ bedroom here) and I have a feeling it won’t be my last. They are so in right now and I am here for it!

The accent wall is painted with Benjamin Moore Cushing Green, which is the perfect bold yet muted green. Put simply, it freaking rocks!

We couldn’t do white bedding because of the two furry pups who also live in the house, but my friend found this awesome rusty-orange colored bedding that she then paired with these fun sheets and some fluffy, faux fur pillows (the exact ones are currently unavailable, but these ones are similar). So fun. So funky. So her!

I kept the nightstands simple and neutral since there was already a lot of color in the room, but I added a little interest with cool textures.

And what about these pendant bedside lamps? Are they not to die for? They are super budget friendly, easy to hang, and are just a little unexpected. I can’t get enough of them! You’ll need this cord set, these shades, and an Edison bulb to assemble them in your own room.

I cannot get enough of this room! It was such a fun project to work on for such a dear friend and I feel bittersweet that it’s finished. But maybe now I will get around to finishing up my closet!

With love,
Mercedes ♥
