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:
Here's what it looked like after:
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!
This macrame was also handmade and is available right now on my shop!

These were some of the main items I bought:
