It’s here! It is the big reveal day for my little girl’s modern farmhouse bedroom and I’m super excited to show you how it turned out! After 6 weeks of preparation, planning, dreaming, shopping, and lots of DIY projects – her bedroom is finished. I’m loving how everything came together, and she’s pretty smitten with it too! When she first walked in she genuinely said “Wow, I love it! It’s soo beautiful. Thanks Mommy!” Um .. heart melted 🙂 Participating in the One Room Challenge with Calling It Home this spring has been so fun. I’ll definitely be joining in again in the near future!
If you can remember back to week 1, I was pretty much starting with a blank slate. There wasn’t much in her room to get excited about and it had tons of potential (you know, the nice way of saying that it reallly needed some improvement) 😉 The lack of color, texture, and interest really led me to dream big and have a fun time planning out the space. And the 6 week deadline meant that I couldn’t procrastinate on this project – which I may or may not be known to do. Accountability can be a good thing!

Here are the before shots of where I started with this space:
Here is how the challenge has come along:
- In week 1 I put together an inspiration board with the look and feel that I wanted to incorporate into her bedroom.
- For week 2 I made a DIY hand lettered canvas to incorporate into her room.
- In week 3 I showed you how I gave an old antique dresser a makeover.
- Week 4 I showed the beginnings of the board and batten for the wall treatment.
- For week 5 I did a DIY headboard makeover using a drop cloth.
Now it is week 6, and here is how the room looks now:
I can’t get over how much better it looks now! It has texture, character, color, and a little bit of fixer upper charm. I loved using neutral colors with a little bit of pink, coral, and blue. Most of the furniture and decor were DIY projects, but there are a few accessories that I fell in love with at Hobby Lobby and Ikea!
Bed/Headboard: Second-hand find & DIY headboard – [similar one here] | White Duvet Cover : Ikea | Pink Throw pillow covers & inserts : Ikea | Tassel throw pillow : Marshall’s | Grey Dresser: DIY Antique – [similar one here]
Wood Photo Frame: Hobby Lobby | Plant and Planter: Ikea | Scalloped Frame: Target (from a few years ago)
I put together these simple wreaths by using embroidery hoops and wrapping some faux greenery from Michael’s around each hoop. I love the natural wood and texture that the greenery gives to the room!
White Bookshelves (painted spice racks) : Ikea | Hooks: Hobby Lobby – [similar one here] | Wall Hanging: Etsy | Round Rope Mirrors: Target Dollar Spot find – [similar one here] | Light Fixture: Home Depot
This sweet antique hand-made rocking horse was an awesome Craigslist find. I scored it a few years ago when my oldest was turning two, and now my 2 younger daughters are able to enjoy it as well. I’m pretty sure I’m going to try to keep it in our family for as long as I possibly can 😉
Chair: World Market second-hand find – [similar one here] | White throw: Target | Blue throw: Pottery Barn (purchased a few years ago)
And here is one last comparison of the before and after transformation:
Thank you for following along during this One Room Challenge! The challenge has really empowered and inspired me to tackle more projects in our home. It definitely challenged me (those 6 weeks really fly by!), and helped me narrow down the design choices for the space. I’m so happy with the transformation of her modern farmhouse bedroom!
Her room is very peaceful and inviting – exactly what I was hoping for. I have a feeling I’ll be sneaking into her room in the near future. Doesn’t that cozy chair look like a nice place to curl up with a good book?
