Dream Bedroom After: New bed and pallet wall

We made it to the finish line of our One Room Challenge! We’ve had many a late night and more fast food than I care to admit over the last 5 weeks, but walking into our dream bedroom now, it all seems worth it.

Before we get to all the pretty let’s take a peek back at where we started. Our primary suite has been stuck in a half finished state since we moved in to the Dreamhouse a year and a half ago. Even though we’ve had our beautiful main bath, the part of the space we spend the most time in left much to be desired.

And without further adieu, come on in to our Dream Bedroom!

The After

First of all the unfinished wall got a major upgrade! The reclaimed pallet wood feature wall we created behind the bed is definitely the highlight of the room now.

Our plan for the pallet wall going in was to stain the boards, but once we got them cleaned up and sanded they were just so beautiful we decided to keep the natural colour. We did apply a thin layer of poly in a satin finish to seal it.

Can we take a second to admire this fabric?! The print is just so much fun, and these faux roman blinds were another super easy DIY.

Opposite the bed we created a sitting area. I can definitely see it becoming a new favourite spot for morning coffees. I’m also really happy we decided to install the hardwood. It just makes SO much of a difference! It was definitely worth the extra expense – not to mention that it gave us a reason to add that gorgeous geometric print rug!

After nearly 2 years, it feels amazing to finally see our dream bedroom come to life! Hopefully you enjoyed seeing the transformation as much as we did. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing more about some of the details that went into the room, but for now we’ll leave you with this.

    Oh yes!!! So stunning! It was hard, sometimes, to imagine all the parts as a whole when looking at the individual item photos, but your sense of color and pattern combination came through… This is absolutely gorgeous!
