Vintage Chic Bedroom Makeover (One Room Challenge week 1)

We’ve been in our rustic beach cottage a little over 4 months now even though I’ve decorated and organized a few spaces, one space that I’m really excited about decorating is my daughters room. I want her space to be feminine, yet still have a vintage chic vibe. Since I was going to transform a room anyway, I decided I would participate in an event called the One Room Challenge. Are y’all ready to see the plans for my little girls Vintage Chic Bedroom Makeover?

If you stumbled upon my corner of the internet world from the One Room Challenge site, I wanted to say Welcome! My name is Lindsey and I’m just a souther gal with a desire to create. My goal for Repurpose and Upcycle is easy DIY projects, furniture flips and budget friendly home decor tips. I’m glad you’re here!

Do y’all know what the One Room Challenge is? It’s a challenge where bloggers from all over transform one room in 5 weeks. I can’t wait to share my daughters bedroom makeover with you. While you are here, click HERE to see other bloggers room makeovers too!

Let me show you the current state of Emerie’s bedroom (aka the disaster room!).

One Room Challenge

I’ve got a lot of things on my to do list for this space.

  • remove the full size day bed and replace with two vintage twin beds
  • add wallpaper around the window
  • make a DIY fabric roman shade
  • create a space for toy storage
  • new bedding
  • re paint her vintage desk
  • add faux hanging chandeliers to the walls behind the beds

One of my goals for this space is organization her toys, making an environment that she wants to play in, and creating a lovely inviting space. I can’t wait to show you what I have planned for my daughters room makeover.

Ready to see a very rough mood board for the new space?

I’m sure the plans will change, but I wanted to get a quick idea of what colors I wanted to use in her bedroom.

As far as things that I checked off the list this week;

I did bring the antique twin beds in and swap them out for the double day bed. I think they fit much better in this space.

As she says “now I can have a swumber party.” Oh boy, I don’t know that I’m ready for that yet.

This week I created a set of DIY rain gutter book shelves, which are super functional and look great!

    That is one lucky little girl. I wish I could’ve done things with my children’s rooms. I had two boy & two girls, but the age span was one end to the other. Girl – boy in one age bracket and Boy – Girl in another! Geesh! This is really gonna be sweet! Glad you have the opportunity!
