Board and Batten Bedroom Makeover

Pink Board and Batten Bedroom MakeoverIn the midst of a home renovation, it’s so comforting to have at least one clean and organized space where you can go to escape the chaos of it all. For me, this space was my bedroom—until the renovation chaos invaded my safe space! The situation might sound a little stressful at first (and even more so if you could see my still half-demolished first floor), but now that this quick master bedroom makeover is over, this space is even more of a peaceful retreat than it was before!

When I was given the chance to work with Arhaus on this project, I had a mini freak out moment, because I’ve always been an admirer of the brand. I grew up in Northeast Ohio and stuck around to put down roots, so I’m really proud of what we have and businesses that are based here. Arhaus is one of those businesses, its headquarters are actually on the same road as the button factory where my dad worked. As a kid, I learned about quality craftsmanship and the importance of details as I worked alongside my dad in his wood shop on Saturday afternoons. That probably explains why I’ve always been drawn to a fine furniture shop like Arhaus and even applied to work at their Canton store when I was in college earning my interior design degree. I didn’t exactly qualify for the job back then, and ended up waiting tables instead, but now it feels like things have come full circle!

As happy as I was to do my own shopping at Arhaus for this project, I’m just as happy to let you all know that you can win $500 towards some Arhaus goodies of your own! Read on to the end of this post to see the details.

bedroom beforeI have to say that Phil and I were happy enough with our bedroom as it was, but I hadn’t spent much time hanging art (obviously) or really doing anything with the space besides moving in furniture and accessories that we already owned. It’s been really hard for me to give up my old bed, but we wanted to upgrade to a king-size bed since we finally had a house with room for one. This bed is very special because my dad crafted it out of raw materials when he and my mom were newlyweds. It’s going back to their house in my old bedroom for guests to use, so at least it’s not goodbye forever!bedroom beforeArhaus Lincoln BedThe new Arhaus bed I chose for our makeover feels simultaneously casual and luxurious, and it also looks pretty fly alongside some Arhaus bedding, pillow and decorative accessories like the white vase on my dresser. But obviously another major element in the design of this space is my pink board and batten wall! I’m all about mixing bold and modern design choices with more traditional elements, and this room feels like the essence of all the things I love.

Installing the board and batten ourselves was a relatively easy project, though it certainly takes a substantial amount of time to do if you’re putting up more than one wall. It’s worth the effort, though, amiright?! Look at those before and afters! I’ll talk you through how Phil and I installed the board and batten, and also give you some insight as to how long each aspect took us to accomplish.

How to Make a Board and Batten WallMaterials:
1×4 or 1×3 boards (I used pre-primed ones)
Nails and/or screws
Construction adhesive
Sandpaper (I used 60, 80, and 120 grit for various aspects)
Paintable caulk
Primer + Paint
Masking tape (optional)
Breathing mask

Nail gun and air compressor (not necessary, technically, but very helpful!)
Stud finder
Putty knife or spackle spatula
Power sander (not necessary, but again—SUPER helpful!)
Chop saw
Caulk gun

How to Make a Board and Batten WallBefore beginning the project, you should measure your walls and determine the size you want your squares to be, factoring in the width of the boards you use. I began with one size square in mind before laying it out and realizing it wouldn’t fit the height I wanted, so I used smaller squares to fit the width of my headboard wall, then stopped the board and batten where it ended vertically on the wall, even though it wasn’t on the top of the wall. You don’t need to make yours perfect squares, but I liked the idea of doing that in my room.

Step One: Mount your horizontal boards into the studs of your wall using heavy duty nails or even screws. (If you use screws, they will need to be countersunk.) I used a spacer I had precut to the square height and used that to begin each new row. Use a level to ensure each row will be perfectly even all the way to the opposite wall. Putting up the horizontal boards was the fastest part of this whole project!

How to Make a Board and Batten WallStep Two: Cut the short boards for your verticals. I used a pre-cut pacer for each vertical board placement. I didn’t use a tape measure for this, but instead would hold a board up in the place it was to go, then mark where I needed to cut the board. After I cut the board, I would put it in place and move on to the next one, without gluing or nailing yet. This part of the project was something I worked on solo as Phil (husband) came along to glue and nail them in place as I was halfway through with the cutting and dry-fitting process.

Easy Board and Batten InstructionsStep Three: After each vertical is in place but not yet glued or nailed, use a level to mark where it should be glued in place, at the same time marking where the verticals in the next row up should be placed.

Repeat steps 2-3 until you have the whole wall dry fit and ready for nailing and gluing.

Board and Batten TutorialStep Four: Glue and nail each vertical board into place. Use the marks you created in step three to make sure they’re perfectly in place.

How to Make a Board and Batten WallStep Five: Sand, spackle, and prime. The most time intensive part of this project is all of the sanding and filling of gaps! Whatever you do, do not skimp on sanding. It gets exhausting, but you must make sure that all of the boards are even across the surface of the wall, or after painting you’ll notice all of the spots where the vertical boards stand proud of your horizontal boards, or vice versa. Thankfully my newly retired dad stepped in to help with sanding, because I was beat! After sanding, fill all of the holes and cracks between boards with spackle. When it dries, sand smooth then clean. Next caulk. Sounds so simple, and sure, I could use less words to tell you about it, but I really feel the need to prepare you for the agony and boredom that comes with caulking every single square on the wall! You’ll want to have a few good podcasts lined up, believe me.

But again—worth it!

Step Six: Prime and paint. We decided to spray paint the walls because it would’ve been a pain to brush around all of the boards. Such a good choice, but we should’ve had a box fan in the window to suck the air and airborne paint out of the room. But we didn’t. I had to touch up some overspray due to the cloud of paint that tinted areas of the white wall above the pink. The touchup ended up only taking about five minutes, so no biggie! Definitely worth the time saved in brushing and rolling.

Arhaus Lincoln BedDid I mention how all this work was worth it?! The board and batten treatment is such a classic design element, I know I’ll be happy with it forever, even after the pink paint is covered up one day with the next color that strikes our fancy.

boho ArhausMy gorgeous bed from Arhaus just tickles me with its beauty and craftsmanship, but honestly it was hard to choose between the offerings at Arhaus because I love so many things! I pulled together a few of my favorite items I would’ve loved to include in our bedroom as well. I love a good basket light, and after experiencing an Arhaus linen duvet cover, I don’t think I can go back to plain ol’ cotton. Such simple elegance!

  1. Globe Ratan Pendant
  2. Lincoln Bed in Oatmeal
  3. Casey Task Table Lamp
  4. Palmer Nightstand in Natural Oak
  5. Kaira Rug
  6. Eva Vase in Cream
  7. Cotton Knit Baisley Stripe Throw
  8. Boho Striped Knot Pillow in Black
  9. Serena Antique Mirror End Table
  10. Tansy Upholstered Sheepskin Chair
  11. Ava Hem-Stitch Duvet Cover in White
  12. Boho Ivory Fringe Rectangular Pillow
  13. Stone Washed Velvet Rectangular Pillow in Blush

arhaus textilesIt seemed like such a simple and small thing, but the cotton striped throw from Arhaus is one of my new favorite things in my house. It’s so soft and cozy, is sturdy yet doesn’t pill like synthetic blends do, and has classic appeal with a luxurious feel. I’ve been taking it from room to room in our home for cuddle sessions.

Pink Board and Batten Bedroom MakeoverWe’re all excited to have a hotel-like oasis at the top of the stairs right at home, but I forgot how exciting it is for kids when a room is transformed. Maybe this quick makeover looked like magic to my girls, but man, Mama is ready to take a big ol’ nap in her new king-size bed! When I wake up, I’m sure there will be two little munchkins still managing to push me off the edge, even though I feel like I have mattress space for days!

pink master bedroomPink Board and Batten Bedroom MakeoverPink Board and Batten Bedroom MakeoverThe board and batten and my vintage campaign-style dressers provide a great classic backdrop for some of the quirkier elements I used to decorate our bedroom, like this big cat poster a good friend of mine dubbed “Jaba the Catt.” We have a thing for kitschy animal decor around our house! And check out this little clay hand dish I made for one of my first ever crafts as a contributor for A Beautiful Mess back in 2013. Still love this thing!

modern eclectic dresser stylingPink Board and Batten Bedroom MakeoverAfter experiencing the dramatic change applied moulding (or in this case, simple 1x4s) can give to a boring room, you better believe I’ve been concocting more plans for batten and moulding details in other unfinished rooms in our house! I can’t wait to share them with you all.

Before applying the board and batten in our bedroom, I thought the angled ceiling of this space made an awkward design situation for someone who is drawn to symmetry and balance. The board and batten was the perfect solution for grounding the space and giving the furniture better context in the room, without taking away from the airiness of the high ceilings. The room now feels so cozy and inviting thanks to the warmth of the walls and the sumptuous upholstered bed, but the room also feels surprisingly spacious … even though we now have a larger bed. I’m still trying to figure that one out! Ah well, best not to question and just to enjoy little miracles when they come along. (But I’ll credit the low-profile bed in this case!)

  • We’re gearing up to lease office space for the first time (!!!!!) and I think the Nobelle Dining Table would be a KILLER conference table!

  • I LOVE THE WALLS! And the bed, and the furniture, ok I love it all!
    This is such a great re-make of the space!
    After checking the website I would definitely spend that $500 on some of those cotton weave throws, stunning baskets, and other decor!

  • That Kaira rug is definitely what I’d get if I won. Love it.

  • Anything Arhaus is amazing but definitely the rug!

  • Well that rug pretty much screams “time to buy me” and toss out the old Pottery Barn one I’ve had for nearly 2 decades! I think I’ll go for the linen duvet win or lose, just for a little freshness!

  • I just moved into a new apartment and am in need of quite a few pieces to fill my space! I’ve got my eye on this chair for my living room: I could also use a couple sets of silverware: It’s so hard to choose!

  • I’ve been wanting rose gold flatware to complete my dining table set for months! The Serendipity 5-piece place setting is the dream!

  • Too many beautiful choices! Would probably go for two sputnik chandeliers

  • METALLIC EMBOSSED LAYLA PILLOW + so many other pillows. My rooms could really use that extra oomph!

  • As always, you’ve done such a great job on this room. I love where you ended up putting the cat art. You are giving me inspiration to add the finishing touches to my own master bedroom. I have been on the hunt for the perfect end-of-bed bench, and I think Arhaus would have something to fit the bill.

  • So many beautiful things; I think I’d go with the BLACK AND WHITE HAIR ON HIDE rug. Soo awesome!

  • I love the cotton flax bedding! So gorgeous and simple.

  • Find one thing? Ha. Coffee tables, lamps, there are some great rugs on clearance. There are some beautiful curtains that would be a tremendous upgrade to my living room. I hope I get the chance to pick. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Love your room! It must be so satisfying to put in all that hard work and have it come out so beautifully. If I were to win, I think I’d get the Serena coffee table. The one I have now I bought at the Bombay Company years and years ago.

  • Mandi,
    The room is so luxurious and a total retreat! Awesome job.
    I really loved reading the connection you have to Arhaus- so cool that you even applied there and now you get to sleep in their bed 🙂
    I’d use the credit for the Hayden sofa with the brass legs. I’m so looking forward to decorating our new house, and this would look SO perfect with some vintage sofa chairs we have!

  • The Cucina table- definitely! We bought an unfinished farmhouse in Maine and that would be perfect!

  • We just bought our first home (a small co-op in Queens, NY) and we need all the storage we can get so I’d definitely order the Tremont Queen Storage Bed! So pretty and practical.

    I’ve been trying to pull together my master bedroom for months, there’s one impossibly dark corner that is crying out for the right floor lamp. I would love Westgate Floor Lamp for its timeless elegance and small footprint – I think it would be the perfect addition to my room.

  • Beautiful transformation, Mandi! Thank you for the inspiration and tutorial.

    As far as Arhaus, the Amelie arched mirror for the win!

    This is such a beautiful makeover! Love it!!

    2) i’m not the one doing the work but man am i ready to go to sleep in my own bed!!!! i’ve been bed hopping at home and i never thought i would say that i miss my bed especially since it’s just a basic frame made out of wood & plywood.

    ….so if i won a gift card i would buy the Hough Queen Bed!
    i need a new bed frame so this would be perfect. and its so beautiful!
    i think it’s about time i buy myself a real grown up bed.
    these last few days have showed me how important a good night’s sleep is!!!!

  • I would love to purchase a new sofa. I think the Taylor in 76″ would be perfect!

  • Beautiful renovation! And I am obsessed with linen, so I would love to get the Natural And Ivory Chambray Striped Linen Duvet Cover. So pretty!

  • I’ve been searching high and low for a new area rug for my living room, and the Callie rug at Arhaus would be perfect!

  • Your projects are so inspiring – and I am in awe of your DIY talents! While spending $500 on scrumptious linens is tempting, I’d probably pick the PALENCIA ROUND COFFEE TABLE. I’ve been struggling to find a coffee table that will work with our large sectional and the Palencia might just be the one. Thanks!

  • I just had time to fully look through the Arhaus website and if I won the gift card, the ivory embroidered fawn linen duvet would be mine in a heartbeat! I love the simplicity combined with the special embroidered detail.

  • We’re in escrow on our first house! It makes me sad to think of our old mattress making the move to our shiny new pad. Plus, my back is killing me! I’d put this $500 towards a new mattress.

  • I’ve been using a really ill-fitting table as my nightstand ever since we moved into our house about a year ago. I’d love the Tremont Nightstand as an upgrade!!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Hi there!

    With summer coming up, I would use the gift card towards outdoor furniture like the Santa Barbara sofa!

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  • I would absolutely get the Lincoln bed in Oatmeal. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!

  • We’ve been looking at new sofas and I think I’d get the tangier upholstered sofa in jumble cobalt and Dallas oatmeal. Thanks!

  • ok, i’m loving jabba the cat, lol. so many things to choose…i’d love reyne two drawer nightstand.

  • Oh my gosh, I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with the Palmer line. I could only get the nightstand on sale, but I’d buy that in a heartbeat! Now to save my pennies!

  • I love this board and batten look!!! It turned out awesome! If I win, I would love to put that towards McKenna Flatweave Rug in Olive… we are re-doing our bedroom, and would love to make my room just as beautiful as yours!

  • I love their lighting options, esp. this one!

    Sarah M

  • I would definitely get the Palmer Desk for my new craft room I’m working on!!

  • I’m also from Ohio and always a big fan of Arhaus ever since I was a kid and would go with my parents so they could dream about that stuff haha. We love the Arhaus loft store now for discounted items (bought our couch there in November). I would probably buy the Sputnik chandelier (or 2!) for our dining room and kitchen remodel, hopefully this summer, money and time permitting (we just had twin boys :). LOVE the board and batton – I’ve been planning to do this in the stairwell down to our basement. Also love the pink – what is it called?

    • I used to subscribe to their catalogue when I was young just so I could look at the pretty things! 🙂 The paint color is Sherwin Williams Sweetened Plum.

  • So much to choose from! I think I’d put it toward a bookcase for our spare room. Or maybe towards a new sofa? or a sideboard for our dining room???

  • Love, Love, Love what you have done to your bedroom! If I could bottle up some of your determination, I may just finish my bedroom… As far as the giveaway, I love the Marrakesh pendant lights!! I would purchase an assortment and really light up my home. Thank you for the chance.

  • I love the board and batten! My partner and I talked about doing this in our room and I love these images to use as a reference. 😀 We could really use the cucina 36″ dining table. I love how it collapses, which would allow us to save space in between family dinners.

  • Wall color is so good, I can’t remove my eyes of it. The room is so calm, sereine and inviting. Bedsheets look so comfy. What a great makeover. Bravo ! 🙂

  • I’m in love with the Amalie mirror! It would be perfect for our baby’s nursery. *fingers crossed*

  • Great idea for bedrooms in a B&B. As for the gift card, The Wexford Pendant is gorgeous.

  • I would buy new bedding! Maybe the cotton flax crepe duvet cover.

  • I would love to do this to a wall in our guest bedroom. I just need to convince my husband to help me. We just renovated our master bath and repainted the master bedroom at the same time. The Suzanni Jacquard Duvet would be perfect for our refreshed space.

  • The Ardell mirror caught my eye as well as that striped throw you have we’d have to have a couple so there is no fighting over it!
    I also love the look of the Palencia round iron end table.

  • Lovely renovation! The Sputnik chandelier is divine!

  • In LOVE with these walls! They turned out so beautifully. Also love Arhaus, one of my fave places to window shop. The Arc Floor Lamp w Glass Globe is calling my name!!

  • Your bedroom is so beautiful! It really does read as a high-end, luxe hotel!

    From Arhaus (and really, how hard is it to choose one item?!) I would love the Reese 3 door cabinet in blush 🙂 So dang pretty!

  • What a stunning transformation! My husband and I just bought our first home together and the Nobelle Round Dining Table would be an absolute dream in our dining room!

  • I’m not sure what exactly I would choose (I take forever to decide) but it would definitely be some outdoor seating for our new patio! 🙂

  • I am looking for new lighting for my kitchen and would love to get the industrial cloche pendants for my island!

  • Love this makeover. A total labor of love. There’s and Arhaus right next to my work and I love window shopping during my breaks 🙂 the throws are so soft!

  • I love that color, super beautiful! I would love a new rug for my living room from Arhaus 🙂

  • I’s go for the palmer nesting end tables!

  • Love the faux fur throws and all of the gorgeous vases/planters. Such beautiful accents to make a cozy home!!

  • That is such a beautiful space! I would absolutely use it for the Hayden Upholstered Satin Brass Sofa ???????? We just moved to our forever home and while the burnt orange sofa we purchased from Craigslist 8 years ago is still intact, it doesn’t mean we should still be sitting on it. Holy back pain! ????

  • I’d buy the whiskey leather couch! Such a pretty color and love the shape.

  • Love this Reno. I would put the $500 towards the same bed. It’s gorgeous!

  • I have been on the hunt for a quality duvet for our master bedroom and the AVA FULL/QUEEN HEM-STITCH DUVET COVER IN FAWN would be perfect.

  • omg your bedroom is gorgeous! love the batten. i like so much on the arhaus website! i’d pick the CARRINNA COFFEE TABLE

  • I love the bluestone top on the Holden square coffee table so that would be my choice.

  • Amazing transformation!
    I’d love to have board and batten in my flat, but the ceilings are unfortunately not high enough.
    I love the dusky pink colours you’ve used and the fabulous horse painting.
    Well done!
    Love, Debs @

  • The Evanston Iron bed is the stuff of dreams! Perfect for my new room

  • What a transformation! I love the walls and the color scheme!

  • Do you have sources for the wall lights you have on each side of your bed? I love those and am looking for something similar!

    • They’re from France & Son. They don’t pivot to point to the bed, sadly, but we’ve found that they’re still good for reading in bed!

  • Beautiful makeover, I love your bedroom! I would get your same Lincoln King bed! It would pop so nicely against our deep blue wall in our bedroom!

  • So many wonderful things! I especially love the Wyatt Outdoor Sectional.

  • Mandie, this is beyond beautiful!! I’ve loved following along with all your renovation projects in your new home, but I think this is my fav by far! I’m lovin’ that pendant you chose. I was looking through Arhaus’ other lighting options and fell in love with the Ferris chandelier!

  • What a relaxing paradise to sleep in!!! Congratulations!!

    I would buy the 60″ ROOT DINING TABLE WITH IRON BASE, I have always been in love with natural wood tables! 🙂

  • I love their decorative pillows, especially the geometric lumbar. It’s such an easy way to change the look of a bed!

  • Amazing how different the room looks. Great job! I would get the hemisphere geode chandelier =)

  • I would keep it simple and buy the gathering basket!

  • Gah the Lenox bed is so lovely! Living in NYC I’ve had a full-size bed with a metal frame for years and it’s not feeling very adult these days. 😛

  • We are about to renovate our kitchen, and re-floor our ground level, so I’m in the market for new lighting! I am so intrigued by the Hemisphere Geode Chandelier (and those rugs are gorgeous!)

  • What an incredible makeover — a real classic, with a modern twist.

    As for Arhaus — I confess: I’m swooning for your rattan pendant!!

  • Beautiful room!

    I would love a new bed! I actually like the Hough bed. The Lenox & Hendrik nightstands are really nice too. I’m sure I would love some lighting, or textural items from Arhaus too. They’re stuff is always lovely!

  • The emily swivel chairs are good choice for my dining room

  • I love how the curtains match the wall color! Where are they from?

  • We’re working on our kitchen now, so would love to use the $$ to pay for 2 of the DARCY PENDANT lights.

  • Beautiful bedroom! Arhaus is great, too – I’m in the market for a dining table, and I love the simple, bold style of the Knox 72″ Parsons dining table. I’d love to take that home!

  • I’m renovating my house right now!! I would definitely get a set of the Henley Nightstand.

  • BRB DYING- that wall treatment is AMAZING! You are so inspiring!!! That gift card would help put a dent in that Taylor sofa I’ve been drooling over!!

  • If I won, I’d decorate my new house with a new bed, new lighting, and a new rug!

  • This room is beautiful and I’m so inspired by it. I never heard of Arhaus before this post, but I’m loving their pendant lights. I really liked the industrial cloche pendant in antiqued brass

  • I’m honestly planning to get the Fresco Voile Quilt. The gray color would look amazing against my vintage bedframe.

  • This is so pretty Mandi!! I would love a new Dinning Room table from Arhaus. Especially the Massah one.

  • What a beautiful bedroom oasis! Thanks for sharing Arhaus. I love the Holmes dining chairs — they look just like my grandmother’s set from Ethan Allen in the 60s! We’ve been jonesing for a few more chairs so dinner guests won’t need to sit on each other’s laps 🙂

  • I love the vibes in this room!! Also I’d get the Leighton 62” table – I’ve been eyeing this table for so long – it’s a great size for games and everyone to be involved in the conversation!

  • Like be this Anne everything faux fur.

  • I would definitely get the Leyland flushmount in brass! I love the glamorous look of it! And you guys did such a good job with the walls! I don’t know if I’d have it in me to do all that!! Xx

  • Beautiful! I would get the Arno coffee table! I’ve had the same one for over 15 years.

  • Oooooooh, so many good things! I had never been to their website before – how is that possible?? I would get the ANTIQUED BRASS HEMISPHERE GEODE CHANDELIER. SO gorgeous!

    • It’s Sherwin Williams Sweetened Plum. Love it!

  • It wouldn’t cover the entire cost, but if I won I’d put the gift card towards some outdoor furniture. Specifically, the manhattan outdoor 81″ sofa

  • I’d have to put it towards the BRIDGET UPHOLSTERED 95″ SOFA IN CATRELL INK! So gorgeous!

  • Thank you for the inspiration! We recently moved into a new house and after living in tiny apartments for the last decade, I feel overwhelmed trying to decide what to do. But I love the board and batten idea (we have two rooms with a similar sloped ceiling and I think it would help make the rooms look larger). Aside from a large piano, we have no furniture in our living room. I would LOVE the Arhaus tangier upholstered sofa.

  • It would go toward a headboard–we’ve never had one for our king bed, and I want one! I love the one you have, and also love the Beck headboard.

  • So many great sofas, definitely would use it t purchase a new one

  • Such beautiful things! I think I would get the grey embroidered chambray duvet, and some pillows!

  • Your bedroom makeover is amazing! I love love love the board & batten. And the color you choose is just gorgeous!
    We just redid our kitchen & family room. Living through a remodel is rough, but so worth it. I’m just working on the finishing pieces (like a new kitchen table, chairs, & dining rug). I still need to get a sideboard/buffet/console table. Arhaus has a piece that might work perfectly:
    We already have a hammered copper coffee table rom Arhaus that I adore!!!

  • Get out, this is amazing!
    I love the Palmer round coffee table.

  • Love that pink board and batten! So fun, yet so classic. I think I’d splurge on some new bedding, since I’d never allow myself to spend that much. I’m digging the Natural and Ivory Chambray Striped Linen Duvet and some sheets to match!

  • LOVE the walls.

    I’d get an outdoor rug for my porch! Love the Flynn palm leaf pattern.

  • I’d get the GREY WOLF FAUX FUR THROW WITH GREY VELVET BACK for sure, but so many beautiful things to choose from!!

  • The Linden Leather Chair is dreamy!! I would love to have it in my space ????

  • I love the room. It makes me feel like some far away place in the hills of Europe. I would buy this HEMISPHERE PRISM CHANDELIER IN SILVER in a heartbeat!!

  • Love this makeover!!! Amazing.

    Thanks for the giveaway, I’m loving the hemisphere geode chandeliers!

  • SOO GOOD!!! My parents had their room painted a very similar shade growing up so it’s siper nostalgic to see your room!! I would use the $500 to buy prices for my daughters nursery that needs to be done before her due date in August:)

    • Oh man, I would love to see photos of that room! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pink master bedroom before, but it really is such a calming color. Congrats on your babe!

  • I’d definitely get the GILES 28″ UPHOLSTERED CHAIR IN KUBU INDIGO!

  • The Clarence Floor Lamp with Natural Shade in Bronze for sure!

  • I need a sectional for my living room. The Taylor is beautiful!

  • I’d use it for new bedding for our master bedroom!

  • I was actually eyeing the Lincoln bed before this, and now I want it even more!

  • I would definitely get some decor! I’m thinking a mirror? I’ve always wanted a floor pouf too!

  • I’d buy the Bari Refractory Dining table for my tableless dining room!

  • Absolutely stunning makeover!

    If I won this giveaway I would put it towards refreshing my living room with the adorable Jonas upholstered ottoman, stone washed velvet pillows (in blush or fern) and the Tibetan wool throw in ivory!

    Thanks for the chance!

  • I’d get the Kipton Chaise chair- my husband has been dying for his own special chair and it would fit perfectly in our living room

  • I would get a nightstand, I still haven’t gone an gotten myself one since losing my last one in Harvey.

  • Oh my gosh, the bed! We are in a process of buying and I will redo the whole house (hopefully in six weeks) and all I really want is a beautiful, serene bedroom. The Lincoln bed would be perfect!

  • This is such a great design for that room! I never would have thought of it, but I like it. At Arhaus, I think I’d get the Wessex Leather sofa or the Flanagan bed. Or both!

  • Just lovely! How to choose just one thing from Arhaus?!? Love the Taraz chair for my living room.

  • I would probably get a pair of dining chairs (really love the Gage Dining Chairs!) or a headboard, like the Evanston in White – reminds me of my grandma’s old bed frame! There are so many choices!

  • I would honestly freak to have that Ceramic Deer vase in my house, the top is open to put plants in as antlers…so cool. Love a lot of their decor and especially their little jewlery section as well!

  • Love Arhaus. Your bedroom looks beautiful!! I would definitely use it to buy a new bed for my room.

  • I absolutely love the pink color and the fact that the dresser sort of looks like old timey suitcases!! Swoon!

    If I won the giftcard, I would snag a couple of the Blanc Facet Tealight Holders, a Luxe Ivory Faux Fur Throw, the Evening Star Moonstar ring and the Adira Black Onyx ring.!!!

  • LOVE Arhaus! I have loved their Culver sofa in Debary Texedo – so I’d probably try to convince the hubs we needed it if I won the gift card ????

  • Your room looks amazing! I can’t wait to start our bedroom makeover in a few weeks…we’re doing a similar look on the walls though in a dark green. And I would love to have the Serena Coffee Table!

  • I looooove their chambray striped linen duvet cover, and the kaira rug!

  • I love this space!
    I would love to win the giveaway for our bedroom!! I have put zero work into it and our mattress is still on the floor!! It needs so much love!

  • This bedroom makeover is gorgeous!
    I’d put the gift card towards the Emory Slipcovered Sofa. It looks so comfy!

  • Oh man, so many gorgeous things but that Maya bed is pretty great! Your room looks AMAZING!!!!

  • The Clancy sofa has been my dream sofa FOREVER!!!

  • I need a new king sized bed frame! Love this one!

  • WOW!!! i cannot believe what a difference that made in that room- serious magic!

    we have some darker corners in our house that don’t get great light, so i’d probably get a mirror or two (like this one OR get some great new lighting!

  • Beautiful stuff! I would love this sectional in our brand new living room 🙂

    or this gorgeous outdoor table!

  • Your new bedroom looks incredible! And this tutorial is perfectly timed as I’ve been contemplating adding an applied box molding to my guest room. I love the pink you chose for the walls and am amazed that you spray painted it! Certainly would save some time.

    I would love to buy that woven light fixture from Arhaus for my breakfast nook. I’ve been on the look out for something similar.

  • Those cashmere throw blankets look amazing. Although I could use entirely new bedding too.

  • I bought a beautiful new bed frame but have been searching for new bedding to go with it for months. That linen duvet in fawn is everything I need!

  • Beck Bed in Windsor Graphite! So crisp. I love it. I really love the board and batten, too. It makes the room feel so cozy and unique!

  • I would love to upgrade to a cozy sofa, I’m loving the ones with storage underneath from Arhaus

  • Love this makeover! It’s mind-blowing! If I won the giveaway, I’d put it towards the Kenton Dining table! It’s perfect for our space, and we’ve been (im)patiently waiting to find the perfect table to put in our space!

  • I didn’t know that about Arhaus being from Northern Ohio. That’s cool!

    As for my favorite Arhaus thing in particular, I quite like the Reyne hutch. It could work well for corralling mess/serving as a landing spot in our home.

  • I would put the GC towards a storage ottoman like this one:

  • Gorgeous! We need a new sectional for our TV room.

  • I love the wordsmith recliner chair. Perfect for our living room!

  • I’d go for the vangogh 35′ upholstered ottoman in vance indigo!

  • Oh my goodness, the bedroom looks so cozy!

    Their website has me drooling. I would LOVE to put a gift card toward a new dining table — the Copper Table with Lyon base is standing out! *heart eyes*

  • This bedroom makeover is gorgeous! There are so many beautiful items from Arhaus, but right now what I would buy is a new lighting fixture for my dining room! either something simple like the Elena pendant lamp or something really fun like the Geode chandelier. 🙂

  • i would love GRAND CHESTER SMALL MIRROR HOOK IN ANTIQUE BRONZE to fit my rather tight house vestibule …. perfection!

    • the dusty rose paint you selected looks amazing!!!!!! what color is it?

      • I truly could not be happier with the wall color. It does change depending on the day and the tone of lighting, but I always love it. It’s Sherwin Williams’ Sweetened Plum.

        • its truly fabulous!!! It seems so velvety, and ready for some cuddling … thank you for sharing !

  • Gorgeous, Mandi! It really does look bigger, that was my first thought. Visited that site and a blanket is definitely on my list plus that Arc Floor Lamp. I didn’t realize this company was right near you, what a perfect fit! Love that tiny nightstand art too 😉

    • Thank you! When Claire first contacted me and began to describe what the company was, I was like, “HOLD UP! I KNOW WHO THEY ARE! I’VE BEEN OBSESSED WITH ARHAUS MY WHOLE LIFE!” haha 🙂

  • So my maiden name is D’Avignon, so I feel obligated to the Avignon dinnerware! but I love it too!

  • My husband and I would love to have a bigger bed (pup and cat take up a lot of space in the middle of the night!). We’d love to upgrade to a king bed and could use the $500 toward a RETREAT EURO TOP MATTRESS WITH LATEX FOAM INSERT.

  • I bought a home a year and a half ago and still do not have a bed frame and it is driving me crazy so I think id put a gift card towards this one:

  • Love the bedroom makeover!!!!
    From Arhaus I think I’d choose MOROCCO PRINTED QUEEN DUVET or one of their pretty rugs…

  • The Tangier sofa, even though I would need to completely rework my living room. It would be worth it.

  • I would invest a beautiful coffee table. I liked the framed one.

  • Arhaus is the best! Thanks for doing this giveaway! I’m a sucker for those faux fur and chunky knit throws.

  • I think I’d choose the same Lincoln bed as you did!

  • Loooooove this room, so much. You’re so creative! I’d probably get a collection of pillows or lights. Maybe the INDUSTRIAL GLOBE PENDANT IN ANTIQUED BRASS Yay!

  • I would get the Ava linen sheets for my king bed. I’ve been wanting linen sheets for a long time, but they’re such a splurge!

    • Those sheets are amazing! I feel ya on the splurge, but after sleeping on Arhaus linen, it’s going to be difficult to go back to anything else on laundry day.

  • Wow! Amazing makeover, love the walls and the colors you chose. Ok, I went to the Arhaus site and straight to the dining tables – we need a round one so badly for our cramped condo and the gorgeous Lara pedestal is what I would choose.

  • What an incredible makeover! I cannot imagine how much detail would be involved in filling all those holes!

    I really need a new kitchen table. So I would get the LARA 48″ ROUND PEDESTAL DINING TABLE IN BARNWOOD NATURAL

    • Haha! I actually really appreciate that you appreciate the detail with filling holes! The sanding was the worst part. Good luck on the giveaway! 🙂

  • I too would love to upgrade to a king, and I’m eyeing that Beck Bed!

  • Your room turned out beautifully, Mandi! I would purchase outdoor furniture – my “patio” is in need of an upgrade for this summer!


    • Thank you! And Arhaus has amazing patio furniture!

  • Totally in love with the same Lincoln bed. My husband and I have been waiting for a bigger house to upgrade our full size mattress to a larger size, but with 2 kids and a dog now, we might have to find a way to make it happen.

    • At our old house I suggested that we just turn our bedroom into a bed-room. Where, you know, you walk into the room and just fall into a king size bed, because that’s all that would fit into the room! Ha! I actually wasn’t kidding, but Phil wasn’t down.

  • What a DREAM! (Pun intended). So fun to work with Arhaus, too! If I won the giveaway, I would use it toward the Kaira rug. The colors would look amazing in our living room!

  • Mandi, you did such an amazing and inspiring job in your bedroom – my wheels are spinning now with everything that I’d like to do in my own. Alas, it’ll have to come after we finish our kitchen remodel – which the Albion set of dishes from Arhaus would fit into perfectly!

    • Kitchen first is my motto with home renovating! You’ll be glad to have it finished and then you’ll be ready to do your bedroom. 🙂

  • Where is that tray from, that your hand dish is in? It’s gorgeous!

    • I found the tray last year at Home Goods. It’s a good one! Solid marble!

  • My boyfriend and I are moving in together, and I would love to start by buying us some of Arhaus’s beautiful linen bedding! (A lot of Mandi and Rachel’s diys will also be making their way into our home ????)

    • I’d LOVE it if you share your projects when you do them! Also, I LOVE the linen duvet from Arhaus and now I would like to get sheets too. So soft!

  • Oh man… I just bought a new house so I want it all! However, I NEED a new office chair and I would LOVE the Capri Desk Chair!

  • We could really use some more lamps in our house…I would definitely get the Aston Brass Table Lamp! And the Clarence table lamp! All the lamps!

  • We are in desperate need of a new TV console at our house – the Geometric Media Cabinet in Jepara Natural is BEAUTIFUL!

  • I love that mirror and of course that bed is amazing! What color and brand of paint did you use?

    • It’s Sherwin William’s Sweetened Plum. Love it! I was afraid it wouldn’t be enough color, but it ended up being perfect.

  • Very inspiring, you always have such great projects!

    I am loving the selections of nightstands from Arhaus, and that’s what I could desperately use to help re-do my own master.

  • What a transformation!! Love the texture you added to the walls with the boards! IT looks incredible!


  • I love the Bodan Upholstered chair. Great makeover!

  • Best ABM room makeover…EVER. TRULY!

    That Lena chair in the garden fabric…????

  • Wow it looks so amazing!! Fabulous job! I would love to put that money towards their Maya bedframs!!

  • I’d love to put this towards the Bridget upholstered sofa. So pretty!

  • Love the makeover!!! I’d put the gift card towards a new couch 🙂

  • I would get the natural and ivory chambray striped linen duvet cover, and then the coyote faux fur throw to go with it.

  • My jaw dropped when I saw this room – it’s stunning! And thanks for the introduction to Arhaus – I’ll be putting quite a few things in my wish list, like the gorgeous Watson Bookcase!

  • What a gorgeous makeover! Everything looks so good! 🙂

    Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog

  • That sheepskin chair is exactly what I want for my bedroom!
