room

makeover

transformation

. It will be awesome if you haven't been following my channel. We're transforming into this

room

in my parents' house, so this room actually started out as my childhood room. I chose this bright yellow color and I chose this floral wallpaper, so after I moved from that room to another, my mother took over this room as her home office for her. she put this big desk here she had filing cabinets here and she never made this space her own room she never decorated obviously the painting was still there so now that she is retired and no longer needs this room as a home office we go to give the room an

extreme

makeover

so she really wants to turn this space into a multipurpose space for her and I'm so excited to create a special room for her so she really wants an area that she can fall in love with. rk on a desk we use her laptop and plan the trips she is going on she also wants a reading nook so a comfortable space with good lighting that she is comfortable to read in she loves to read and also wants to convert this space into a potential guest room space, so it serves three different purposes.

This is going to be a really amazing multi-use space that will work in three different ways and has a special request to keep this old dresser and integrate it into the design so that this old dresser really was my great grandmother's and it's a very special piece it's beautiful it's very well done and we're going to use it in the new design and really incorporate it in a beautiful way as you've seen in my previous video that's the In phase one of the remodel of this room we removed the wallpaper and chose colors of paint, so my mom was part of this process of choosing the color she wanted. ed to incorporate a color and he liked teal so I was thinking if we're going to do teal we have to do a dark moody teal something that's really beautiful that will balance out the dark wood of this vanity so we're done choosing this color tsunami you also chose this color, you agreed with it and I am very grateful for that.

of this room and love these videos as much as I do, give this video a big hand right now and let's go ahead and pick up where I did.

I started by painting this room, I really want to sit down and figure out what The design of this space had so many different functions and purposes in this room we needed a desk area we needed a reading nook we needed a space to sleep in and we needed to incorporate this dress or in this very small space so I came up with a lot of different ideas. I knew I wanted a small laptop desk here. I didn't want anything big and clunky because I already knew the dresser was very heavy and chunky looking. I didn't want another piece of furniture that looked really heavy. there so i wanted a very skinny laptop desk and i was also trying to figure out how i was going to incorporate a night space and a reading nook into the same space and i thought if i could turn them into a two in one piece of furniture that would be amazing Then I found the perfect option from Ikea it was amazing there is a really cool piece of furniture that looks like an ottoman and turns into a single bed I feel it is the most innovative and amazing multipurpose piece of furniture that is compact but can spread out doesn't take up too much space looks very minimalist I decided to go for the ottoman shape with two cushions and I felt like finding this piece at IKEA really helped the whole room come together because now there was room to move, there was room to have all these different functional parts in this room and I could start to drawing these layouts, so I knew that the two main spaces in this room would be this desk area and this reading nook, and overnight space I really wanted to anchor these two spaces with the teal accent wall, so when coming up with design ideas for this space, we were really thinking about sight lines and what you would see from each location, so I had the idea to place the furniture in the corners in an informal way. things pull things off the wall facing furniture towards each other it really makes the space look like an official multipurpose space I went on Pinterest to try and figure out what the style of this space would be and I found all these beautiful images.

I really love the color palette of these neutral tones, these warmer black and white tones, and the color teal. I thought it was stunning all together, especially with gold accents like this, so that was the direction I was headed in again. same theme of adding old pieces with new pieces and really mixing it up so i created my own inspiration board and this is what i came up with some really simple idea pieces that were neutral and affordable and i also mixed some old pieces, art wall and I think it's really blending in really well creating a simple mood board like this really helps me visualize what this design will look like together.
He's painting day one, day one of our extreme makeover, so from now on this room will look. completely different i'm ready to wear my painter outfit as you can see let's open up the paint and get off to a good start let's see what the room looks like today. I let the paint dry overnight oh my gosh it's already a big difference once this yellow wall is gone we'll be able to see the real colors here but Wow so today we start off with this wall by painting it like a tsunami to be honest. I was super nervous.
I've never done a wall this dark before so I just hope it works and looks good. I just want it to look good so we'll try it today because I think I'll regret it if I go all white and do something boring like that so I think we should be bold get out of our zone here my mom said she wanted t -- so it's turning teal, guys, the second day of this. makeover starts right now oh my gosh this looks amazing Wow we are here for day three the paint is finally complete. color I hope you guys love the color too this is so intense so edgy so moody all i wanted anyway is day three of this extreme makeover and i really want to incorporate all the main pieces of furniture today.
I have a lot to build today because a lot of them are in kea pieces. I really wanted to mix that simple modern look with our old pieces like the dresser and some decor pieces around it so you really get that mix of old and new and then once everything is here we can start decorating so we'll see if that becomes a day for what not. I really know it depends on how long it takes me to build these things though we go ahead and bring our furniture and build the first thing I'm bringing into this space is this new rug I got from Wayfarer and I am very happy with this rug.
I have been on the lookout for this rug for a long time and it came up for sale at Wayfarer and I bought it in one day. It shipped very fast and I love the pattern. It is very Moroccan, very traditional. but also modern and I think it's a great mix of all the different styles that really goes and helps tie the whole design together, it really goes well with the rug that's already there in the room and just helps brighten up the space so I thought I'd it would be a great addition to this new design, the first IKEA piece setting up a new building today. it's the gland tray table M and this table is only 25 bucks it's one of the most affordable tables from IKEA and I think it has the most simple and minimal design that could fit in so many different spaces so I thought it would be perfect for this space where i want to mix something old and new and its just a great addition to our little reading nook now it really took me a while to figure out which desk was going to go in this space i ended up finding this joe IKEA bit desk for $49.99 very affordable price its a great laptop desk and it's thin it's glass and the black accents really blended in with the rest of the room and it didn't draw too much attention it didn't take away from the dresser and it really looked like a g a great piece to just flow in this space now it's time to put together my favorite thing we found for this space the Valentina sleeping unit for four hundred and seventy five dollars like this that this is where a lot of the budget was allocated for this space but it really serves the two purposes that we need as a rest area, but also as a sleeping space.
It converts into this double bed by simply pulling out the lower half easily. It slides out like a sofa bed would and it's a two in one system so this is exactly what we needed it's compact but it fits perfectly in this space it comes in different colors and we just finished it off with some cushions to make it more comfortable like this which now i am going to hang the curtains and decide to go with a double rod system so we can have a single curtain and then behind it this is like a lace curtain so i thought i would add a very nice old and new combination so that we can overlay them with a nice modern black bar and then these ar's are modern but also very traditional looking so I think this is going to look really amazing.
These curtains go so well with this rug and then they will help brighten it up and add that white again so it will really help soften. this whole wall here, so I'm doing something a little different with the lighting on this desk, since it's off the wall. I don't want the wires to go across the floor for a table lamp so I thought I'd hang a little pendant light that comes down here to hang over the desk I'm going to use this hema cord from IKEA and it's actually a plug in cord, so you can plug it in, mount it on the wall, hang it in the ceiling with these little hooks they provide and then you can choose your own bulb so I have two different ones here one that is an older bulb this Brawley has better light so which might end up picking this one and then you can pick your own display so i'm just going with s something super simple it's called the nail on this is a really easy hack for people who don't have lighting that plugs in so i thought i'd add a little pendant light here would just add some dimension some height and some light over this desk if you watched my last thrift video i found these four flat baskets for $2.99 ​​so this will be a really cool piece of wall art for three bucks so that's pretty awesome i want to use these flat baskets above the reading nook here and put them all there i think it will add a nice texture to the wall and really bring out the warm tones of the room chest of drawers so yeah I'm just trying to lay out a pattern I'm just going to drive a nail through each of them the baskets right in the middle to hang it so it should be really simple do it for a decorating idea easy wall art for three bucks and now my wall art don't worry I'm not going to use these pictures I'm just going to be using the frames I got one of these frames from the thrift store for $6.99 and it actually matched It's mapped out that I already had at home, so I can take those copies out and just put new pieces of art inside.
I'm finding my prints on this website called unsplash where photographers can upload images. I can download them for free and go print them so they have awesome pieces here. You can search for keywords like scandinavian sunset, doors, windows, so my mom really wanted to look for some old mediterranean doors, windows, alleys, very European things, so I found these three and just made a little mockup of what it would look like. on my wall so I could finalize my idea, then I sent them to the photo center at Walmart to have them printed in a larger size and I ended up with these Wow, I just unrolled them in the car and they look amazing.
I'm so glad I did this love that oh my gosh these are awesome ok that was such a great idea. I'm so glad I did this, oh and last one, this is my horizontal print. Wow, okay, I can't wait to frame them.
