Bedroom Mini Makeover at my In-Laws
A quick bedroom mini makeover anyone can implement in their home. Shop your own home for a whole new look!
Recently we packed our bags and went to stay at my in-laws in the country for a week.
My husband is from a small town in Southern Illinois, so we like to plan little getaways there from time to time and visit family. And let’s be honest, a change of scenery was much needed!
While I was there, I did something fun and gave the guest bedroom that we stay in a mini makeover! Nothing crazy, but still a good change for the space.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the entire transformation from start to finish in my stories. I thought I would share it here too!
Bedroom Mini Makeover Before
Naturally, I forgot to take some good before pictures, so above are some screenshots I grabbed from my Instagram Stories.
My sweet mother-in-law gave me full permission to do whatever I wanted, and I took advantage! I also told her she couldn’t see the space until I was done. So it was a fun reveal!
Bedroom Mini Makeover Plans
Their home is styled very country farmhouse, so I wanted to keep up with that theme. I have a ton of decor I am getting ready to purge, so instead, I pulled some of it to do this makeover.
- Paint the walls gray, see ya later yellow!
- DIY a simple headboard
- Change bedding
- Hang different curtains
- Chippy window gallery wall
- Bring in farmhouse decor
Bedroom Mini Makeover After
I used leftover gray paint I had from painting our living/dining/kitchen area. It’s called Dolphin Fin by Behr, and I love how it instantly brightened up the room.
I grabbed an extra white quilt we had that came with shams, and a beautiful vintage quilt as well for a pop of color.
The cozy white throw pillows I did run out and grab from Walmart, and I think they work perfect with the bedding.
My husband helped me build this quick and simple DIY wood headboard out of some 1×6’s we grabbed at the local hardware store.
Seriously the easiest project ever, and look at what a difference it makes!
I had a bunch of chippy white window frames and picture frames I hung in a little gallery wall.
Also I replaced the curtains with some white Ikea curtains I had, and hung them higher and wider on the wall to make the window look bigger.
When we do come out and stay a weekend or longer, we obviously have Bailey sleeping in this room with us.
There’s a cream rocker in the corner by the window, and not pictured is a beautiful white Jenny Lind bed on the wall to the right when you walk in.
One other thing I grabbed while at Walmart was this black lamp to replace the small one that was in there.
I added just a few farmhouse decor items to the cute side table that was already in the room as well.
What do you think!? I love how it all turned out, and I love that I got to do this for my mother-in-law.
She is such a wonderful woman who takes care of everyone around her, so it was nice to do a little tiny something special to repay her for all she does!
We have the same situation. Me and my husband currently visit at my in laws house and I’m trying to think what would be the best makeover. Knowing this will help me a lot to decide.
Wher does your mother in law live? We live in southern Illinois also! Anna Illinois is where we moved to 2 years ago !😊
Well done! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE those chippy white frames – am going to copy totally!
You did a lovely makeover for your mother-in-law. What a difference paint, curtains, and a few accessories make.
First of all I have the absolute best daughter-in-law! The room turned out beautiful. I couldn’t believe how much bigger it looked when she was done. So bright and airy. I can’t wait for the next room she wants to work on.
Wow, you did an amazing job! Paint, changing the bedding and curtains makes such a transformation!
