ABM Studio: The Bedroom (Before)

Hey friends! I'm here to share some plans for the bedroom in our new space. This is one of my favorite rooms in the house. Here are a few "before" photos:Bedroom BEFOREThis is what you see when you walk into the room from the hallway. This is the wall where the bed will be. The room you can see through the door is a small room that we plan to use as a "styling room" (basically pretty storage). Bedroom BEFORE    Alright- turn to the right and this is the next wall. Maybe some art here? 

Bedroom BEFORE  This is the wall facing the hallway. That other door goes up the attic. Isn't that little window a character? Maybe a side table or dresser on that small wall? 

Bedroom BEFORE Here's my favorite view! A wall with pretty bay window. 

We have big plans for this room! First of all, the border has been stripped and the warped ceiling has been skim coated. We painted the room a fresh bright white with a pop of color on the ceiling. You might remember we were considering a pop of color for the living room ceiling, but we decided it was more fitting for the bedroom. I just picked out the light fixture and it's gorgeous! 

That's all the progress we have so far. SO many more choices to make. Bed frame inspiration Bed frame inspiration Bed frame inspiration Headboard inspiration via Desire To Inspire.

You guys may already know, but we love making headboards! This time we want to change it up and do something fun underneath the bed as well. I'm actually considering a canopy bed frame. Can't wait to dream up side table ideas as well.

One thing I really want to focus on in this room is something unexpected. I love this gigantic photograph in Mike D's (Beastie Boys) home. 

In addition to these ideas we will for sure create some kind of new incarnation of the guest room cart. Maybe not a cart this time, but a place to leave treats for our guests. We've had a bunch of guests since making that for my homem, and it's such a great way to show our friends we care. 🙂

Alrighty! I only have one more "before" post to share and we'll be sharing progress photos soon! We actually just worked at the new space for the first time today (!!!!!) It's come along way since these before photos were taken in October. Cannot wait to share more! xo. Elsie
