One Room Challenge - Another Craigslist Bedroom Reveal


Woo hoo, the day we've been waiting for!!
First, I just want you all to know how thankful I am for you! It's so wonderful that I
have the opportunity to do what I love and your support and friendship and the fact
 that you read my little blog is truly icing on the cake. :)

A heartfelt thank you to Linda @ Calling It Home, the brilliant creator behind the 
One Room Challenge - I love the energy and excitement it creates in the blogging
community and  the motivation to finish a room and give it your all.

If you'd like to start from the beginning: 
Week 3 - Fabric, Chairs & More Craigslist here
Week 4 - DIYs
Week 5 - Lamps, Ceiling 

Without further ado - the reveal of my client's Master Bedroom:

My clients wanted a neutral background with pops of color, a mix of styles, and
wanted to keep their dark four poster bed and dresser. I had so much fun scouring
 Craigslist for them, including DIYs and budget friendly sources (Ikea, Target, 
World Market) to create a unique room. Items from our generous sponsors,
 Arhaus,  MintedLoom Decor and Wayfair brought it all together.    

Next week I'll share sources and more details on our room.
Today, I know you want the pretty pictures! :)

We gave the room a modern backdrop with fresh white paint, and used high gloss
 enamel finish on the four poster bed and Ikea nightstand hack (details to come). 
The large room with high ceilings was perfect for over size statement artwork, 
we found at Minted

BEFORE

  


#1 Craigslist steal was a zebra hide, I was beside myself to see it pop up. The tufted
 chairs were just like their inspiration photo, but were discontinued, awesome World
 Market employees went out of their way to get a pair to us. The black industrial cage
 light is a nice contrast against the light panels (thank you Loom Decor!) in the corner,
 and it along with the moody abstract (thank you Minted!) add an edge to the softness
 of the seating area.   


 #2 Thrift store find were vintage Florentine nesting tables. 

BEFORE
This dresser was made by my client's dad years ago and they'd never put any finish on
 it. We saw a beautiful piece at Anthropologie but it was $$$ and was our inspiration for
this DIY weathered gray finish (details to come). 




 #3 Craigslist score a beautiful bamboo mirror we love.
#4 Craigslist score, the dresser!!
They had wanted to keep the old dresser but the style and scale weren't the best, I
 found the new dresser with beautiful hardware and a lower profile - they were able to 
sell the old one for the price of the new and it was a wash. Win - win!!
#5 Craigslist score - the curvy cane back chair with a citron velvet tufted seat, It worked
perfectly with all the straight lines of the dresser, art, lamp and mirror.  


 More beautiful artwork from Minted!

Our crisp white duvet with modern embroidery detail is from Wayfair.

We chose Target benches for the end of the bed and reupholstered with a shaggy fur
 to add some great texture and a bit of whimsy.
 The nightstands are Ikea hacks (more to come). We started with a simple box style and 
updated the finish, base, hardware and added a nailhead detail.  
Speaking of nailhead did you notice our ceiling!!!!! Go ahead scroll back up. :) 


These gorgeous lamps are from Arhaus (thank you, generous sponsor!) we we're thrilled
to find them when I visited. The top quality and beautiful details are unmatched. The black
shades give balance to that side of the room.



And, last but not least our nailhead ceiling! We knew we wanted to give their beautiful 
tray ceiling an interesting detail and this random geometric was a cool addition that
we all loved. More details next week!


Thank you so much to my wonderful clients for allowing me to share their home
with all of you and for enduring the six week challenge! They were there pounding in
 nailheads long after I'd left at the end of a day, and worked so hard on every project
along the way. You guys are truly the best!

Dana Frieling said...

S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!!! Pam, you really outdid yourself this time. The color palette is so soothing and the large art is totally one of my favorite elements. I'm overly impressed with the amount of elbow grease that went into this transformation. Never in a million years would anyone attach the words Craigslist or Ikea to this room. You continue to prove that you can have a high dollar space on a small budget. Way to go, friend!!!

My Notting Hill said...

Crazy amazing - out of the ball park! I'm expecting to see this is a magazine sometime soon.

It is so inspiring to see how many items you were able to source from Craigslist and other inexpensive home stores all while creating a truly divine space. Every last detail is breathtaking! You knocked it out of the park!

Pam! You are so good at the ORC and are the Queen of Craigslist finds on top of that. I love the old dresser that you gave a weathered finish - I hope you'll share how you did that - it's gorgeous. Again, you're a genius with pattern and hit it out of the park with this room. Perfection.

Laurie from Laurie Jones Home said...

You knocked it out of the park, it’s absolutely stunning!!!

SHERRY HART said...

Shut your mouth. Are you flipping kidding me with this room? My mouth is still open in amazement. This is so good Pam....I am so proud of all your hard work putting this project together. I mean seriously this is what the ORC is all about. You need your own TV show....I could go on but you might start to get uncomfortable.....haha!

Marion said...

Another great room. I loved your bedroom and you kitchen in earlier ORCs. You have so much talent in combining fabrics. Can't wait for the details next week. (Especially the source for the Chinoiserie fabric used on the pillow in the white chair.)

Amber B (Simple Dwellings) said...

Wow, Pam! You never cease to amaze me! That nailhead ceiling is gorgeous! And I really need to paint my bed after seeing what the reveal looks like. I have almost the exact same bed and have never liked its wood grain finish. You give a girl hope! ;) Love it all!!

Decor To Adore said...

What an amazing transformation! A true job well done. I adore the color palette you selected. It feels fresh and fun. The six weeks went by so fast. I completed our entry, living and dining areas in a new to us 30 year old house. So, cheers to us! Have a wonderful weekend.

Freckles Chick said...

All hail the Craigslist Queen!!!! Another amazing transformation, Pam! That dresser, the bed, THAT CEILING!! *standing ovation*

OMG how many hours did it take you to do that ceiling? Everything is absolutely fabulous...particularly love that chest. Did you do the vinegar & steel wool treatment to get that finish? You are the Craigs List Queen no doubt about it!!

Sherry Calamia said...

This is such an awesome transformation! Love all the details and your amazing finds!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

Once again, such an amazing job Pam! And once again, I'm blown away with how you found so many things from Craigslist...I agree you need your own tv show. I would definitely tune in!!! That dresser though..big heart eyes for that!

Shelley Westerman said...

How in the world did you pull this room off so quickly?!! It looks amazing and like it should have taken you several months to pull it all together like that! I can't believe all the goodies you were able to find on Craigslist. Insane! That nailhead ceiling is so good. Love the way it works with the benches at the end of the bed. And I'm dying with anticipation to see how you got that finish on the Anthro looking piece. Bravo!

Jennifer Lippi said...

Pam I am speechless. You have me wanting to run over to Craigslist right now. I love how you pulled this together and the neutral backdrop with pops of color are amazing!

Jessie said...

Such a beautifully layered room! You did a great job, Pam. I am sure your clients are thrilled! I love all the Craigslist pieces you found!

Sharon B. said...

You find the BEST things on Craigslist, and not only that, then you do that magic thing you do to incorporate all of it together to look so chic and beautiful. Fantastic room, Pam!! I'm not sure I can pick a favorite, it all looks great together, but I'm leaning towards that gray dresser. Oh and the green chair! So good!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

BEAUTIFUL Pam!! That bed looks fabulous painted...looks like a totally different bed!

Becky {This Is Happiness} said...

Wow! So amazing Pam!! It looks so beautiful.

Unknown said...

WOW!!!
That's so gorgeous. You find the most amazing Craigslist finds! I always get excited to look after seeing the things you find, and am ALWAYS disappointed in what I find on the Phoenix Craigslist. Seriously, you should take a look, just so you know how much better the stuff in Denver is! Oh sure I've found a few things that were great, but the price is ALSO usually WAAAY too high as well. Sigh.

Vanessa@decor happy said...

Sorry for popping by so late! What an amazing transformation and I love the DIY dresser, the ceiling and the large scale art over the bed. Great work as usual Pam!

Roxine Grant said...

I'm in love! That ceiling is so creative. Just wow...

Cristina Garay said...

Everything in this room is just gorgeous, Pam! The dressers, the mirror, the ceiling...Love it all, oh and Craiglist too! :)

Harlene Causey Voclain said...

Beautiful! Where did you find that pink polka dot pillow?
