After a lot of dreaming, and then months of hard work by our own hands, an old farmhouse bedroom is finally a reality for us.
You should know that Michael’s and my bedroom is the very last bedroom we have finished in the house. Three of our kids’ rooms were finished from new construction when we had the addition put on, and the fourth’s was a renovation. Finally (after 11 years of finishing the rest of the house ourselves), it was time for our own room to be done. It’s a renovation and makeover all-in-one, and we are excited to show you all how it came out.
Now, it’s a medium size room, about 11×20’, so I hope we can all squeeze in there together. Let’s try!
COME ON IN!!
First things first! Any good room makeover reveal cannot be fully appreciated, without first seeing the BEFORE photos. Don’t you agree? So with that said, this has been our bedroom for the past couple of decades or so.

So yeah, that was our plain-blah bedroom. I just kept the door closed all of the time, and especially if people were over. It wasn’t horrific by any means, but I wouldn’t want people to think that was my decorating style, or anything. LOL. It was simply a room not done. For just a few years (prior to our house addition), it was the triplets’ bedroom, as it was the only bedroom (of only 2 in the house then) that fit 3 cribs and then 3 toddler beds. During that time, Michael and I had no bedroom! We slept in the crawl loft of our living room on a mattress! We had to go up on a ladder to get up there, and all. After the addition on our house, as rooms were finished by us on weekends, we were finally able to reclaim our own bedroom. It was good enough, for the time being. We were saving all of our efforts for OUR bedroom, until it was our turn to renovate, after all of the kids’, of course.
