For some reason, the bedroom always is the last to be decorated in our home. That was the case in our first apartment, our first home and now in our rental bungalow. Does that happen in your home too? The living room and home office are always the first priority because guests see the living room and I need a finished workspace to be productive. But the bedroom? Always the last on the list! So today I’m excited to share how I finally got around to finishing our bedroom with affordable DIY updates with Devine Color + Target.
When we moved to California, the only bedroom furniture we brought was our Malm dressers that I hacked over 4 years ago. Since the move, we added a headboard and this painting I did but that was it. Definitely in need of a refresh for sure. Our dresser tends to be the place we collect junk and the bed was a collection of mismatched pillows. Here’s a peek at what it looked like before and what it looks like now. What a difference!
Our bedroom feels like a hotel room & I absolutely adore that!
Wondering what changes I made? I started with Devine Color by Valspar wallpaper and paints and then finished with some decor accessories from Target. Devine Color products are available exclusively at Target which is super convenient because I love, love, love Target and I know many of you do too. It made this room refresh easy-peezy because all the items are available at the fabulous one-stop-shop. All of the Devine Color by Valspar products are available in the home improvement section of the store, near the lightbulbs. They are also available online too so if you don’t see the exact color or pattern you’re looking for (or if you live in LA and don’t want to spend forever in traffic) you can have them shipped to you too.
peel and stick wallpaper
The update that makes the biggest impact is definitely the Speckled Dot Peel & Stick Wallpaper in Karat—a warm gold dot pattern with a subtle metallic shimmer. We installed this on the entire wall that our bed is on to create a statement wall. We covered a 12′ wide wall with just 4 rolls of wallpaper. And no glue or water is needed for this stuff, you just peel and stick it onto the wall. And it’s renter-friendly too since it can be removed when you move.
update existing furniture
I updated the mid-century modern side table that I revamped a couple years ago using Devine Color by Valspar Paint in Petal. The perfectly pinky orange color adds a great pop of warm color to our otherwise pretty neutral room. I applied three coats of paint, allowing it to dry for 2-4 hours between coats. When I was done, I refreshed the legs with Devine Color by Valspar Metallic Paint in Karat. They are now more golden than before!
I added pattern and texture to the room with these simple Target accessories. The ceramic container from the Dollar Spot at Target serves as a catch all container and the ceramic flower pot makes a perfect planter. I painted both using the Devine Color by Valspar Metallic Paint in Karat. Just two coats and I now have decor that coordinates with the entire room.
create simple art
I painted a heart onto poster board using the Devine Color by Valspar Paint in Petal. Then I trimmed the poster board and placed it in a frame. So simple! The black and white print is an cell phone photo I took of my horse, Justin. I had it printed at my local copy store as an engineer print (think architectural blueprints) for less than $10.
I just love how the Devine Color by Valspar paint and wallpaper worked so well with the other items I found at Target. I mean, how perfect is this coral side table now? And it’s a match made in heaven with our Nate Berkus accent rugs.
To finish off the look, I picked up these throw pillows that have a tiny pop of coral and pink. They have a modern look with a slight retro vibe which is my favorite type of decor!
Since we only had one side table before, I was on the hunt for a stylish one that wasn’t too large. Our room is really tiny, and so many I found were just too unwieldy. I found this hourglass side table that fit the space perfectly and now we have a place to charge our phones and keep some tissues handy.
