What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Paint or paper the walls. It's important not to get too wrapped up in the inspiration phase of your project — you may never really get started! Get a jump on things by choosing your wall treatments early in the process. Another reason it's a good idea to paint or paper early on is it will give you a chance to live with the colors and tweak if necessary. Plus, going to all the trouble of painting is usually a great motivator to get the rest of the work done.3. Decide what to keep, what to revamp and what to buy. Most of us cannot feasibly go out and completely redecorate a room in one go, and you may not want to anyway. Try to look at each item in your bedroom with fresh eyes (sometimes taking photos helps) and decide what you can work into the new scheme. Some pieces can be used as is; others may be moved (for example, use an old dresser as a nightstand); and some pieces you may want to alter (repaint an armoire and line the glass doors with burlap). Once you have your list of keepers, make a fresh list of what you still need, including supplies for refurbishing your old stuff. And don't forget, you can always shop other rooms in your house, too.
In the downstairs master bedroom, calm colors and quilted, tufted textures create a comfortable mood while colorful farm paintings offer cottage charm. Kim spray painted a stenciled "57" on an old wicker basket above the armoire as an easy DIY update.Wall paint: Davenport Tan, Benjamin Moore; headboard: Home Decorators
