A Bedroom Retreat

Son #3 just returned home after two years of serving our church in New Zealand. As a welcome home I gave his small bedroom a makeover using furniture from our storage and the thrift store. Even the prop hanging above the closet was a thrift store find.We've owned the lawyer bookshelves for years. They've been used in the family rooms of two of our homes.We pulled the vintage chest of drawers out of the garage. They were used by my husband years ago when my style was a bit more country. A change of hardware gave them a nice update.My favorite piece is the antique bed, a thrift store find. The details are stunning! It likely was originally a tall four post bed; what remained of the posts had been attacked with a saw and were rough and uneven. My husband cut, filled, and sanded, then I stained the ends and now they look original.
Although the room is small (about 10'x10') I love the way the large furniture pieces make the room warm and cozy.
I'm pretty pleased with how the budget bedroom makeover came together and so is my son.Link

What a lovely room! We just put our youngest son on the plane to serve his two-year mission, in Korea, and, while I miss him terribly, I am so encouraged by your attitude...and your accomplishment!

Yay!! Its fun to have new missionaries home. So glad he made it home safe. The bedroom looks nice and cozy. Perfect for a RM who has (maybe?) slept in less than pleasant conditions for 2 years!!
