Looking for easy ideas for fall bedroom decor? Here’s a mini bedroom makeover I just finished with all the fall decorating ideas.
I found this luggage rack at a yard sale a while back.
At first? I was going to make it over. I think I had visions of painting it white and adding a blue and white striped canvas material stapled to the underside of it and transforming it into a folding stool.
I lived with it for a little bit and put it in Westleigh’s room and she came home from college and put stacks of towels on it and it has been living its best life without a makeover.
Now this is the part of the story where you are shaking your head and staring at the screen and wondering why I would ever want to makeover something this pretty. And embroidered. And vintage looking.
I agree with you.
I decided I’m not making it over. I’m leaving it exactly as it is and using it as a luggage rack for guests and college students who come home for the weekend.
I made over the room a little bit instead. 🙂
Just between us?
When Westleigh moved out she took half the room with her back to college and it was so lonely in there. I’d walk by the room and it just looked sad.
Like it was missing one of its best friends—which of course it was.
I see you room—me, too.
So to keep myself busy and make the room and I miss Westleigh yes we gave the room a $40 makeover with some new bedding and some furniture and decor from other places around the house.
Then I sprinkled just a little fall.
The room looks like this.
// cream quilt set //
It all started with this.
Isn’t it beautiful? I found it at Walmart online and fell in LOVE (you won’t believe the price).
It’s a queen quilt with shams and it looks so vintage and has the tiniest stitching on it and it looks like it came from my grandmother’s hope chest.
And just when I thought I couldn’t love it anymore? I opened it up…..
…and discovered that it had the tiniest little ruffle all along the edges.
I would have ordered it even faster if I had known.
I’ve never seen a quilt with a tiny ruffle like that.
This is the only new thing I got for the room and for the rest? I just did the decor shuffle with other rooms in the house.
See these curtains? I made them from sheets.
It’s one of my favorite curtain hacks.
Here’s a close-up of the bedding with the new quilt.
The XO XO pillow I got a while back from Hobby Lobby. I’ve seen it a few other places online, too and you could even DIY your own.
The duvet at the foot of the bed? I made it from this curtain set.
The shams are part of the quilt set and the large Euro shams with the raised quatrefoil pattern are from Walmart online, too.
// similar damask pillow //
This side of the room has the closet area that was stenciled using this stencil to create a pattern that looks like wallpaper. The pillow on the chair came from Homegoods years ago. I found a super similar pillow on etsy here.
The light fixture was the find of the century. I found it at the thrift store for only $20. I get so many questions about it and I’ve looked and looked and never found anything similar since.
(edited to add: a wonderful, wonderful reader just found the light fixture on eBay! You can see it here.)
Here’s the finished room.
Doesn’t it look so much happier?
Even though we both miss Westleigh, we both feel a little happier.
You know why?
There are only 62 days until Thanksgiving break. 🙂
