My Complete Room Transformation (On One Paycheck)

My Complete Room Transformation (On One Paycheck)

Realizing that I would probably be living with my mama for a while, I decided to give my bedroom a complete makeover so I would look forward to coming home everyday :). I used to just view my bedroom as a place to sleep, but now it's my sanctuary! It's still far from being done, but this is pretty satisfactory methinks. One big thing I learned from my research is that wallpaper makes a huge difference. We're talking YUGEEE. If you're looking for a complete transformation, opt for peel-and-stick wallpaper. They're so forgiving towards mistakes and they look absolutely amazing!

I did this all in 3 weeks flat on one paycheck's worth of renovations. I sold my queen sized bed, my table, and a bunch of other furniture and trinkets to make up for the extra costs. It worked out perfectly!

Here's what it looked like before:

What a difference!! My room looks so much cleaner and roomier. I bought the gorgeous watercolor cacti wallpaper on Etsy, via Dominika. Check out her shop because she has some excellent quality and gorgeous wallpaper! 

I think my favorite spot in the room has got to be that single-person hammock. It's my personal reading space. After coming home from work, I just light a candle and snuggle up on my hammock with a good book for hours. I bought the hammock on Etsy, but I made that little crate bookshelf myself! :) Tutorial coming soon! 

Let's take a look at the other walls!

I made the pompom blanket, tassel blanket, wooden pallet bed, and hanging macrame within those three weeks, and guess what?! They are available for purchase right here! :) More variations of handmade macrames and tassel blankets will be available soon!
