Epic Room Makeover Unveiling!

What a busy busy week.  For those of you who started reading Vintage Revivals since the Epic Room Makeover announcement lets do a quick recap.

I came up with the idea to have a giveaway contest sponsored by products that I truly love and go to someones house (anywhere in the US) for a free room makeover. Vintage Revivals style.

Giveaway Button

After 3 rounds of elimination the winner was Jessica Rowan.  The funny thing is that she lives about 20 minutes from where my parents live in Salt Lake.  Crazy right?

This is the room that Jessica submitted.

Her cluttery, not awesome in the least master bedroom.

And this is what it looks like now.

Final ERM 4 243


The biggest complaint that she had was with her closet doors.  There were none.

So in all manner of epicness I created this freakishly awesome solution.

See this wall of board and batten?

ERM 4 052


Well… its sort of magic.

ERM 4 167

Both sides slide open.  Sweet right?  This is probably one of my most favorite projects ever and the best part is that it was made using inexpensive things that you can find at any Home Depot.

This corner was super crowded with an armoire before:


And after:

Final ERM 4 065


Are you DYING over that stencil? It is Endless Moorish Circles from Royal Design Studio.  Amazing right?

And the paint colors are PERFECT.  The gray is Empire State and the white is Ultra White both from Dutch Boy. If you are looking for the perfect gray I would bet my first born that you will love this one.

ERM 4 066

Recognize that cute chair?



ERM 4 224

Final ERM 4 055

I totally stole the board and batten pattern from one of my BBFF’s Emily @ Décor Chick. Love that girl.

The chandy started out like this:

Epric Room Makover Days 1-3 007


I used hanging garden baskets to make the cage around it and spray painted it with Krylon’s Metallic Brass.

Epric Room Makover Days 1-3 009


I wish I could say that I came up with this BRILLIANT idea on my own but alas I stole it from the amazing Shannon at Anythingology.

ERM 4 135

ERM 4 139


Do you remember the post I did about the perfect dresser that got away?

Well Jessica had one just like it except it was red.  Its sort of the Makeover Miracle.

It got a coat of Krylon Sun Yellow (which is the most perfect yellow on the planet.) And its better than the one that got away. Boom.

ERM 4 081


The headboard was an old door that Jessica had.


We chopped off about a foot and 1/2 and added crown molding and painted it with Krylon Emerald Green. The panels inside are covered with Ikea fabric and I put nailhead trim along the insides.

ERM 4 096

ERM 4 098


Hmmm lets see what else was there?

Oh yes the Roman Numeral art. MMVI stands for 2006 which is the year Jessica and her husband Allan were married.

I used a few different colors of watered down Decoart and my Purdy brush to get this weathered finish. I wanted it to look a little more rough than mine.

ERM 4 141

ERM 4 144


The Ikea rug had a really simple update with Americana acrylic paint.  Which has a super bright concentrated color, ideal for something like this rug.

ERM 4 193


Now don’t get all crazy when I tell you this but all of the glazing was done with Decoart’s Antiquing Medium…not RL faux glaze.  There was just a little bit on the mirror, headboard, and on the end table.  I love that you can custom mix the perfect amount with is.  It was also a lot thicker than RL’s which I loved.

ERM 4 108

If you are a newbie glazer give this a try.  $3.00 is not as big of a commitment as $20 for a pint of regular glaze.

Also thanks to Purdy I am not against cutting in anymore!!  Holla my hubs is going to be so happy!!  Now I might actually go and finish the trim in Dylan’s room…

ERM 4 229


Here are a few more token shots.

First I need to thank my amazing sponsors for going out on a limb for me.  This is the first giveaway of its kind in blogland and they put a lot of trust in me to pull this off.  If you are onboard for another makeover giveaway please take a few seconds and leave them a message telling them thank you.

Second I need to thank my wonderful friends who helped me SOOO much.  You know how they say you should have a doctor and a lawyer etc in your circle?  Well for a DIYer it’s a little different.

Amy @ Ameroonie Designs is my resident mathmetician.  I told her what I wanted the board and batten to look like and she told me how many boards, what distance apart, you know all the hard mathy stuff.

Tam @ Sew Dang Cute let me adopt her Silhouette a few times so I didn’t have to bring mine up.  Even super late on Sunday night we got to hang while it was doing its magic.  And she just had her baby 12 hours ago so she deserves a plate of cookies x 3.

Mandi @ Tidbits from the Tremaynes is just one of the most amazing people I have ever made friends with.  On top of helping us cut the crown molding for the headboard she was my rock and voice of reason through all of this.  I knew that regardless of my question she could help me figure out the answer.

And so so many others that came and helped paint and install and problem solve!

Stay tuned cause I am taking you guys on a field trip to an upholstery workshop soon…

Tutorials for all of these projects will be posted over the next few weeks.  If you have any questions you can either email me or leave it in the comments (just make sure you have your email linked to your profile so I can respond)

This contest has been a crazy fun ride, it pushed me harder than I have ever been pushed.  I learned a lot about myself and I cant wait to meet more of you in the next round!!

  • Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage 07.07.2011 at 11:36

    This is absolutely amazing!! I love the webbing you used on the chair! The stencil rocks! That rug in gorg!! I could go on and on!! Great job girl!!

  • Anonymous 07.07.2011 at 11:39

    i’m so sad. For some reason I can’t see any of the after pictures… only the befores. I’ll have to fix whatever the problem is, asap!

  • Tanya 07.07.2011 at 11:40

    What a great upgrade! Love all the techniques and details, and that little pillow tucked under the nightstand is lovely!

  • Grammy Goodwill 07.07.2011 at 11:42

    Oh, wow. That is the most amazing room I have ever seen. You did a fantastic job. I can’t even pick a favorite thing.

  • Susan @ 07.07.2011 at 12:08

    Every single thing in this room is amazing! You must have worked soooo hard on it! I love the closet doors, haven’t seen b&b done on that before! Great thinking! Secondly, where did you get that gorgeous bed spread? I love it and want one just like it!
    Beautiful job Mandi!
    Susan @ homeroad

  • Myra @ My Blessed Life 07.07.2011 at 12:15

    Wow, Mandi!!! It is STUNNING! I love the colors and how you pulled everything together. {high fives} :)

  • Andi @ Jane of all crafts 07.07.2011 at 12:22

    HOLY MAKEOVER!!!!!!! I am in awe!!! You have THE best ideas! I love it all!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ~PJ 07.07.2011 at 12:23

    it’s amazing!!! Wow. I think the lamps are my favorite part! Such fun whimsical touches.

  • Vanessa 07.07.2011 at 12:25

    Ummm… so yeah, super huge applause, standing ovation style! L.O.V.E. it. That was amazing. Thanks for the inspiration, I hope there will be some tutorials!

    Mandi ~
    That is absolutely amazing!!!
    I just love it!!

    I am looking forward to more posts on it ~


  • Heather Macbeth 07.07.2011 at 12:42

    Love love love!!!!

  • Lori 07.07.2011 at 12:42

    That looks great! It’s fun and a great mix of feminine and masculine. I think my favorite thing is the closet doors because it’s so clever and practical. I looked at the before pic and thought “did you have to cut out the middle portion of wall?” but then saw that you avoided that by simply putting the railing in front. Brilliant!

  • SAHM I AM 07.07.2011 at 12:46

    You are so inspiring! You make me look at stuff on a whole new level. I have an idea for you. What if you decorate a room in a rental? Something that structurally can’t be altered or tweaked much? I’d love to see what clever things you come up with.

  • April 07.07.2011 at 13:03

    You’re pretty much a rock star!! Dang girl. You were busy. EVERYTHING turned out freakishly awesome but the board and batten, for me, takes it over the top. In.credible job.

  • Korrie@RedHenHome 07.07.2011 at 13:03

    Wow. Just….wow. My favorite thing of all? The closet doors. Oh wait…maybe it’s the chandelier! Oh, who knows! You did a great job.

  • Maggie @ Midwestern {Sewing} Girl 07.07.2011 at 13:10

    OH. MY. GOSH. Are you kidding me??? That doesn’t even look like the same room!!! Mandi, you are amazing…wonderful wonderful job. Me=jealous…

  • Michelle @ Dream Home DIY 07.07.2011 at 13:12

    Mandi….this is AMAZING!! I mean truly stunning. The lamps??? Are you kidding me? FAB! As in I must have them….

  • Team Fuller 07.07.2011 at 13:21

    Holy, ever-lovin’ make-over! Stunning, just stunning. You have a very long and successful career ahead of you. Congratulations on a beautiful job

  • alittlelove 07.07.2011 at 13:29

    Love the bedspread!! Were did it come from? It all looks good. I really like the mirror too. What made you pick those colors?

  • Jennifer 07.07.2011 at 13:43

    I love it! I’m a huge fan of board and batten, it just makes everything have so much character, and I like that you did it over the closet, that was a really good idea. My other fav thing is probably the headboard and that miracle of a chair you made! Just fabulous!! Congrats.

  • Jodie 07.07.2011 at 13:45

    You did such a great job! You should really be proud of yourself! Your talents never cease to amaze me! What a beautiful room! I love the board and batten doors! I think we might need a tutorial on that!

  • Michelle@Somedaycrafts 07.07.2011 at 13:57

    Mandi, You are a design rockstar! I love it all! It’s unique and beautiful. Great colors. Lucky lady to have a new bedroom. Awesome end to a fun contest.

  • Twice Nice 07.07.2011 at 14:02

    That room is the single most AWESOME room makeover I have seen! My jaw just kept dropping lower and lower. I want to go start on my Master bedroom NOW!!!
    Except wait, I’m not you…shoot!

  • Lindsay 07.07.2011 at 14:18

    I’ll buy you a ticket if you’ll come do me next. :) Wow! It looks like it is out of a magazine and I love the touch of whimsy with the his and hers lamps. Fan-Freaking-Tastic!

  • Dharma 07.07.2011 at 14:20

    Jessica! Your room is wow. Mandi – as always, you don’t disappoint :) I love the colour scheme. It’s fun and not contrived or hard to live in. It’s bright and funny, kinda like your contest winner!

    Kudos to your sponsors. They obviously made it happen for you and all your blogging lovelies who came out of the *woodwork* to help, style, build and plan for you.

    Amazing initiative taken to get this underway and done. Gorgeous result. Cannot wait for some of the tutorials.

  • Cindy@Cinsarah 07.07.2011 at 14:21

    WOW!!! That is amazing!! I love it!! yet it makes me jealous/sad lol because I can only imagine what you could have done in my living room!! lol
    I LOVE LOVE the transformation!! You are AMAZING!

  • Leana and Mark 07.07.2011 at 14:24

    This is something!!!! I love it!!!

  • Dixie Mom 07.07.2011 at 14:29

    Freakin’ awesome girl!

  • Mrs. R 07.07.2011 at 14:32

    Love, love, love it!!!! Fantastic job! I love seeing all the thrifty finds and how you make them new again. Definitely has been inspiring me lately to not have to have everything “new.” I can take something old, personalize it, and make it something no one else is gonna have. So many make overs are just too much $$$$$$ wasted on crap that everyone else is going to have. And I could imagine keeping the room the same for many years-its very inviting and bright!

  • craftytexasgirls 07.07.2011 at 14:32

    Way to Go! I don’t know what I love best- so many great details and interesting layers. The room is AAAAAmazing!
    :) crafty texas girls

  • michael. mindy. dane. 07.07.2011 at 14:38

  • theteo5 07.07.2011 at 14:40

    It looks amazing! I can’t believe how much lighter and brighter the whole room looks. What a great job! Can’t wait to see some of the tutorials.

  • Shawna 07.07.2011 at 14:46

    OH WOW!!!! I knew it would be fab, but this is ultra-fab!!! It looks way better than any of those room makeover shows on TV ever look, that’s for sure. I’m in complete awe over your awesomeness.

    For Reals.

  • Tam @ Sew Dang Cute 07.07.2011 at 14:47

    Dear Mandi,
    I love you and you are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!! Everything turned out so awesome and I love your little touches that are distinctly craptastic! So happy the headboard turned out for you. Seriously, it all looks great!


  • Kayla aka "Kilo Bravo" 07.07.2011 at 14:52

    AH-MAY-ZIIIING!! It’s even better than I could have imagined! Can’t wait for the upholstery tutorials. You really out-did yourself on this one. Jessica is a lucky, lucky girl!!

  • Kimbo West @ a girl and a glue gun 07.07.2011 at 14:53

    is it pointless to say it’s fantastic? i mean you already know how freakin amazing you are right? love it all! so fun! i’m so MAD i didn’t win! SO MAD

  • the nayz 07.07.2011 at 14:53

    Seriously?!?!?! This room is!! I am loving the color combination-so fresh. And, the yellow popping through the mirror is just enough to make a statement.

    I am working on those bookcases and can’t wait to show you.

  • Tiffany Anne 07.07.2011 at 14:56

    This is wonderful! I love love LOVE it!

  • Mindy 07.07.2011 at 14:58

    My two faves are the headboard and the chair. I’m ‘pinning’ them both for future reference. Two thumbs up from Oregon. Can you come here next? :o)

  • Clair 07.07.2011 at 15:00

    Absolutely AMAZING!! I love it all!!

  • Analog Girl 07.07.2011 at 15:05

    Love the reveal! Great and creative job!

    I’m curious how Purdy made you not hate cutting in anymore. I got a paint project coming up and I still hate cutting in. Maybe it’s ’cause we have textured walls? I’d love to hear more.

  • Sheryl 07.07.2011 at 15:41

    What an amazing before and after!! The new room looks fabulous; so much brighter and very chic! I love what you did with the room and am inspired by your creativity. Great job, Mandi!!

  • Elaine 07.07.2011 at 16:08

    It looks awesome! Great job! I love so many things but I think my faves are the wall behind the headboard and the great little detail on the rug. Oh, and the yellow dresser make over, chair and chandelier. Okay so maybe I just love all of it. Great job!

    GORGEOUS! I love everything about the room, which is funny, because if I look at individual pieces it’s not my taste, but overall the room is PERFECTION. Makes me rethink a few things that I’m just okay with in my own house and how they might fit in a finished room…

    Seriously, so amazing!

    Thank you to all your sponsors. Definitely an act of trust!

  • Bethany @ A Fish Who Likes Flowers 07.07.2011 at 16:39

    WOW!!! I knew you had talent but man, even knowing how much talent you have, I was still blown away! This room is amazing. You so need your own show or something. And I’m super curious about how you re-did that chair.

    P.S. You’re awesome!!!

  • Jill 07.07.2011 at 16:41

    Wow Mandi….you have outdone yourself and I’m sure you are exhausted! The lucky winner must be beside herself! I love the closet doors and can’t wait to see a tutorial on them. Someday we are going to meet in real life, and it’s going to be awesome!! Nice job friend!

    Holy cow!! Mandi, this is a stunning makeover…you should be so proud of yourself. :)

  • peacheyplanner 07.07.2011 at 18:53

    You are an AMAZING lady!! I was shocked and stunned and utterly jealous!! What a wonderful treat. I don’t have just 1 favorite. I want a room like THAT ONE!! I can’t wait for your tutorials. You’ve shown that any DIYer can produce a beautiful, gorgeous room. THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION!

  • Diana Alm 07.07.2011 at 18:57

    WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!! What a TRANSFORMATION!! =) BeAuTiFuL!!! Every inch! Such talen you have dear!

  • Erin 07.07.2011 at 18:59

    HOLY MOLY! This is absolutely incredible!! That is one lucky girl! Stunning!

  • Megan @ Megity's Handmade 07.07.2011 at 19:01

    Wow! You must be exhausted. It doesn’t look like there is one thing in that room that hasn’t been altered by you guys. It looks fab!!

  • lynneandco 07.07.2011 at 19:05

    I love it! So bright and colorful. The only request for the next makeover (as I KNOW you will do another one!) would be to tell us how you accommodated all of her necessities. For example, you got rid of of storage (ie dressers) that were in the room — where did the stuff that was in them go? Was most of it unneeded, or will she end up piling things in the corners or on the chair as time goes on? And where is her workout calendar now? You know, we all have things in bad places, but it’s nice to know that everything that was needed has been taken into consideration. That’s the one thing that bothers me about decorating shows….they just ignore that the person had things there for a reason and then just toss them. And you just know that those things make it back into the room and now it doesn’t look great anymore :(
    That aside — you did an amazing job on this room and I’m sure she loves it/you!

  • Laura@Corner House 07.07.2011 at 19:06

    It looks SO GOOD! I am all kinds of jealous. I LOVE the fabric in the head board and the chair make over.

  • Kristen 07.07.2011 at 19:56

    So first I was going to say that I LOVED the stenciled wall…and then I kept reading and decided I may love the awesome light fixture more…and then I changed my mind and wanted to comment that I loved the closet awesomeness…and then I decided I definitely loved the cute chair. So, really, this room is simply amazing and that’s all there is to it!

    Wanna have another contest, pick me, and makeover my living room?

    what a fantastic job you did! love the gray (stenciled) walls with the pops of color. my favorite element has to be the campaign dresser in the bold yellow. and the board and batten on the closet doors – genius!

  • adrianne 12.07.2011 at 21:48

    OMG Mandi, it looks AMAZING! YOu are such a rockstar woman!! I bet she loves you forever for giving her such a great room! I know I would have if I had won:)

  • Kristi @ Addicted 2 Decorating 12.07.2011 at 22:01

    Are you kidding me with this room?! It’s simply too much goodness in one space. I can hardly stand it! Okay, that chandelier is one of the most ingenious things I’ve ever seen. When I saw it in the very first picture, I seriously thought it was a major splurge item for the room. I might have to copy this idea, because it just so happens that I have that exact “before” chandelier in storage just waiting for a makeover for my office.

    Ummmm…wow. Just, wow. The whole room is amazing…the headboard, the board and batten, the stencil, the chair with the jute upholstery webbing (genius!!). Amazing.

  • Ann Marie | white house, black shutters 12.07.2011 at 22:31

    so amazing!!!! I cannot even begin to tell you what I love about this room. That chair is fantastic, you’re going to have to spill on what you did with that webbing, it’s gorgeous. Wow. Just speechless on everything!!!

    And as much as I love it, I’m just as much bummed that I didn’t win! Haha, here’s to round two but congrats to Jessica, she deserved it!!! 😉

  • Jen-CraftOManiac 12.07.2011 at 22:50

    BRAVO!!!! WOW!!!! I just love it all. That chair is my fav. and the whole chair nook area with the fab. stencil job. You should be so darn proud, well well well done! winks-jen

  • Anonymous 12.07.2011 at 23:06

    I LOVE the headboard!!! We’re about to move into a new house, and the master will be painted a dark-ish grey. Any suggestions on how to go about making a white version of the headboard?

  • Ashley@ 12.07.2011 at 23:28

    absolutely GORGEOUS room makeover!!! What a lucky girl! And that headboard is amazing! I’ve seen lots of door headboards, but this one takes the cake!!!

    Just wondering about how you made the closet doors from the Home Depot materials…

  • Jenny 13.07.2011 at 14:00

    Gorgeous. I love the color scheme. I would be interested to read more about the closet solution, though. What did you end up doing with the jewelry armoire?

  • Erinn 13.07.2011 at 17:49

    wow, mandi!! it’s beautiful! good work girly!

  • Amanda 13.07.2011 at 18:17

    This is GORGEOUS!!! You are just pretty much awesome! BTW, lovin’ the framed map of Oklahoma. I might be biased since I live there, but it’s still awesome! And Krylon’s emerald green is my absolute fave color right now!

  • Brooke @ Inside-Out Design 13.07.2011 at 19:53

    This room is freaking awesome!!! Wow, I love it! The lamps are the cutest thing ever. And that wall stencil is to die for. Love it ALL!! Great job Mandi, with the greatest giveaway ever!!

  • Jackie 13.07.2011 at 20:18

    Oh my gosh! This is beyond amazing! We just moved into a new home, so none of my rooms are trashed, but every single one lacks character. It is all simple furniture and tan walls. I would love to end up with something like this!

    I’m starting on my first room (and the husband is against painting walls and furniture), so I’ve got some ideas to spruce it up. We’ll see how it ends up! Hopefully it’s fun pops of color and not a train wreck.

    Kudos to you and your fab sponsors for such an amazing room! Oh, and Iw as just googling for yellow spray paint today (to paint some vases) and that Sun Yellow form Krylon is absolutely perfect! So thanks :)

  • Brooke @ The Crafting Chicks 13.07.2011 at 23:07

    This is crazy awesome!! Wow! You did an outstanding job. :) It was fun to meet you for like 3 seconds at EVO, too!

    just found your website. love the room makeover! no really…LOVE the room make over. the door for the head board with the fabric – genius!

  • Rebecca 14.07.2011 at 03:41

    What a fabulous makeover! Did everything that was in the room before (or at least everything they needed to be in the room) go back in? I love the duvet and dresser and stencil and just so much. I wish I owned my home and could paint and stencil and win a contest to have you visit and help me revamp my digs.

  • HeidiB 14.07.2011 at 04:45

    So so so fun and fabulous! My favorites are the headboard and the gray stenciled wall. Love it.

  • Lauren 14.07.2011 at 12:19

    I have to say that the room is not exactly my style, nor do I usually comment on blogs.

    I felt compelled to do so here b/c WOW! What you have done is fabulous!!!! Between the lighting, board & batten closet doors (hoping to borrow your idea for my entry closets), his & hers lamps, the stencil…I could go on. Not to mention the transformation. So impressed!

  • Mrs T 14.07.2011 at 19:13

    Great job!! Love the chair and the chandelier! Also the closet doors…I went ahead and madeover my room…wish I had waited…would have done my closet doors like yours…instead hung curtains…

    Hey Mandy – CAn you tell me where you got the lampshades you used in this room? I’m trying to find some barrel shaped like that – instead of ‘cone’ shaped. Thrifted? Or new?

    love it all.

    I love the stenciled accent wall. I recently featured Please come by and take a button.

  • NS Photography 15.12.2011 at 23:56

    I was so excited to see the yellow lingerie chest. I have a dresser that matches! I found it in a thrift store in Virginia. Mine was already yellow, that’s what made me fall in love with it.

  • Erickson Family 09.01.2012 at 17:07

    I am stealing this idea as we speak my room is being made over into something very similar to this thank you so much for sharing

  • Kalei 25.01.2012 at 01:03

    I pinned this on pinterest.

    I can not believe how incredible this room turned out. I saw the one you did for “Hailee’s Living Room” and I am in awe of your skills. My entire house is a makeover nightmare and I am slowly going to try to get a sweet space like this or like Hailees somewhere in the house. I don’t know if the code is still good, but I am going to head over to get a little bit of stencil love from your sponsor! tah tah for now!

  • I Need to Know 12.03.2012 at 16:25

    Unbelievable! Loved all of it! Where did you get that fabulous bedspread… I need that!!! Great job!

  • The Cavanaughs 13.03.2012 at 21:55

    So the whole room is amazing! I love how you took the door and made it into a headboard. But I seriously have to know where you got the white ruffled comforter? I am in love with it!

  • Anonymous 20.06.2012 at 04:04

    Found this on Pinterest!! I LOVE the headboard… And Everything else in the room. Where did the bedspread come from? You did an awesome job with the room. So glad I found your blog. Traciethomas@aol

    So I just painted master bedroom in dutch boy Empire State with a satin finish. It doesn’t look like a true gray like yours in the post but seems to almost have a gray undertone. I just have the first coat on so far so maybe that will make a difference. Any advice, words of wisdom or reassurance?;)

  • Kate 26.03.2014 at 23:45

    I am in the process of painting our master bedroom in Dutch boys Empire State with a satin finish. It doesn’t seem to be a true gray like your blog but seems to have a blue undertone, I currently only have one coat so that may make a difference. Any advice, words of wisdom or reassurance? That is the paint color you used correct?

  • Leen Nilsson 16.09.2014 at 18:01

    Hi Mandi!
    Great job with the room, I like that the walls are different and what you did with the wardrobe.
    This is really inspiring! Thank you for a great post! Xx

  • Felicity Keith 11.05.2015 at 23:45

    Great stuff you have right here.. If it’s okay I would like to Pin some of them on my Pinterest board.

    Thanks So Much
