Habitat Muse. Bedroom Makeover


Our Guest Bedroom before decorating. There was nothing really wrong with the room, it just looked a little bland. It hadn’t been decorated since we moved into the house nearly 5 years ago.


Small changes can make any room look brighter, more spacious and more appealing.

Even just a change of paint colour can make such a huge difference. A Bedroom makeover doesn’t have to cost the earth.

The Colors chosen, Cloudy Sky & Peaceful Blue. I feel relaxed already.

Ok lets get started. You will need dust sheets, cloths, decorators scotch blue tape, spakling and sandpaper to fill in any holes or cracks. Make sure you have a variety of different size paintbrushes, a roller and tray for each colour. Trim paint. Steps or ladders if required. Be sure to cover the floor and any furniture you couldn’t remove.

Make sure all surfaces are clean and dry before you start.20170123_112636

Take your time, don’t overload your brushes, be careful to mask areas such as window frames that you don’t want painting blue!

Stop when you start losing the light and recommence the following day to avoid patches and missed areas.

When you have finished wash all your brushes in warm water and air dry.

Step back and admire your handiwork.

Now for the fun part – Dressing the Room.


Add a few accessories, keep it simple.



We used the same curtains, although I added sheers that we already had from another room. Bed linens were from before. The furniture we moved round, so the bed faces the long windows. Now our guests have a view of trees and blue skies.

The room is now fresh, light and airy. The cost wall paint and trim less than $50. Blue glass vase and floral decoration/bamboo $30 from Home Goods.

Bed, side tables and drawers Ikea switched out from a third bedroom.

Mission accomplished.

A Bedroom Makeover on a budget.
