Here are some before shots of my bedroom after I'd moved in.
Here is how it looks now after some paint, 2 IKEA hacks, some new accessories, and some DIY projects!
My favourite thing is the nightstand that was made from an IKEA Rast dresser. It provides more storage and more space on top than my previous one!
I created the 4 photos in the black square frames in Photoshop. They are all either places or memories that are important to me. I couldn't find square frames ANYWHERE. My mom ended up finding them in JoAnn's in Arizona when she was there and hauled them back here for me! The other colourful, flower photos I've had since university but never had any where to display them. I picked up some black Nyttja frames from IKEA and finally put them on display on the sliver of wall between my closet and the door.
I've always loved the look of a juju hat, but for the price they go for, it was never going to happen! The juju above the bed was one of my very first DIY projects on this blog. The feathers blow lightly in the wind when the window is open and add a soft texture to the room.
The corner shelf unit was the first IKEA hack I had ever attempted. It fills the weird corner space perfectly and allows me to display my giraffe collection, and houses my tv.
I also updated my closet doors with some tape and paint. Honestly, I can't even remember what they looked like before!
