Shore Bedroom Makeover

It's almost spring which means I'm dreaming of long weekends and lazy days at the beach this summer.  We've had this place for 11 years now and we've been updating it slowly - we started with a bathroom, then the kitchen reno, and last year we carved out a kid's bunk room from the living room. It's time to reclaim the master bedroom as a grown up hideaway.  For the past 5 years, this room has been a mishmash of old Ikea furniture, playpens and diaper piles but no longer!

The bedroom is getting a total makeover starting with new paint and some new furniture pieces.  I can't wait to get started!

I'm still on the lookout for the right drapes - white blackout drapes that don't look cheap but aren't insanely expensive seem to be eluding me. I could use some lighting as well.  And finally bedding - the never ending quest for the perfect comforter.  (No, still haven't found the unicorn yet).  I'd love to hear some suggestions.


  1. I made black out curtains by just getting blackout fabric at Joann's and sewing them to my curtains. I think it cost me less than $20 for the blackout fabric. and it was really easy. you could sew the fabric to whichever curtains you want!!!

  2. I'm actually here to point you to these on Amazon:

    You could definitely sew them in like another comment-er suggested, or if you don't plan on swinging them open every day, the hooks work just fine. We have these in our master and we love them. I was super lazy and just cut the bottom off with scissors - didn't even bother to hem them - out of sight, out of mind!

  3. Personal vote for West Elm white linen blackout drapes - I put them in my bedroom and have been very impressed.


There is nothing that thrills me more than hearing from readers. Please share your thoughts. ♥
