LAKE BEDROOM #1 REVEAL
I am so excited to share this series of lake bedroom reveals. The transformation to these two rooms is really amazing!! I will start with Lake Bedroom #1. This was the first room that we tackled.
My boyfriend's mom was so lucky to have a lake house but over the years, the bedroom's had become so cluttered (all with treasured items for sure....from things the grand kids had hand made to collections of photos, and knick knacks. We really wanted to do something special for his mom and get these rooms uncluttered and back to some semblance of fresh and inviting!
Here are some BEFORE pics. You can see what I mean (lots and lots of clutter!) The over all feel was just dark and uninviting to say the least!
The first thing we did was rip out that awful carpet. There were these very old, odd strange wallpaper panels that we removed as well. The next step was some new drywall. A few fresh coats of paint in a seafoam green color....very soft and beachy feel. A fresh coat of white paint on the ceiling as well and the trim around the windows and some new carpet. Some light and airy curtains to bring some of the outside in (after all, isn't that why you have a house on the lake??!!) The final touches were incorporating some accessories to add the beachy vibe all around. Very soft and not overdone. Check out the AFTER transformation!
Now the room calmly states "OH TO HAVE A LAKE HOUSE" and lends itself to settling in for a good night's sleep with the sound of the waves splashing up against the dock, a book in your hand and the refreshing smell of the water wafting in the windows!! SWEET DREAMS!
