Macie’s Boho Bedroom Makeover Reveal

MacieBefore.jpg

*I will be truncating today’s post because there are approximately one million pictures.  1,000,000 pictures does not equal happy blog loading time.   Make sure to click READ MORE to see the entire reveal!  xo

It’s HERE!!  Today is the day that I FINALLY get to show off Macie’s bedroom overhaul!  I am not good at keeping things secret and this doozie has been eating at me for months.  The special occasion for a room makeover celebration?  Well Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week of course!  Last year I was assigned the color Pink and created Dylan’s Dream Room for my 4 year old daughter.  This year my color was Green and I am pretty obsessed with how it turned out.

Last week I introduced you to my niece Macie.  In short she is fantastic.  Her bedroom?  Um….welp, let’s just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Macie Before 3

What we have here is a room that has been transformed multiple times over the years.  From an office, to a bedroom that all 4 of her younger siblings have enjoyed (hence the sharpie on the wall and the sticker residue on the door), to finally a room of her own.

Mace is a great kid and deserves this space to be wonderful.

Here is how it looks now (pssst! isn’t Buster the fluffiest pup you’ve ever seen?)

So much better right!?

When I create a space I start with the feeling that I want to evoke when you walk into the room.  The feeling that I repeatedly came back to for Macie’s room was Freedom.   Close your eyes.  Wait that wont work.  Ok, keep your eyes open, but picture a sun-kissed girl at the beach,  she jumps into the back of an old army jeep and rides down a scenic two lane road laughing with her friends as the wind whips her hair around her face.  Full of carefree light and the world at her fingertips.  That kind of freedom.

The visual picture that I had in my mind while I was dreaming about this space was one that most of us have actually gone through.  That moment when you are still at home, living with your parents, in a room that they originally decorated.  Your thirst for new experiences and new thoughts, and finding out what makes you happy is something that pushes you unexplainably forward.

If you notice, the bones of the room have a very iconic 50’s vibe.  The two tone doors, and the gold wood slice wall, even the blush nightstands, are polished and refined.  Then like a wild flower in the middle of a manicured garden, all of the free spirited boho breathes life into it.  I feel like this room visually describes what a teenager whose spirit cannot be contained feels like.  It feels like a place where you can have the courage to hear your own voice.  It feels like freedom.

Gold Removeable Wallpaper vintagerevivals.com

Granted my teenage life was not that poetic, it consisted of expressing myself by singing NSYNC at the top of my lungs and skipping Spanish, but I mean, sort of the same thing…right?

We faced 3 main design culprits in the space.

1.  The darkness.  It was dark ya’ll.  (Can I say ya’ll if I am from Utah?)  The taupe walls were not doing it any favors in that department.  I painted the walls with my favorite white (Sherwin-Williams Ultra White Base with 4 oz of white pigment added for coverage.)

Simple and Inexpensive Shelves vintagerevivals.com

 

Dilemma #2.  The carpet.  Macie’s carpet is not bad.  It is just a little harder to design around than a bare floor.  Ripping the carpet out was a no-go and when you cant change something, the next best thing is avoidance right?  So to immediately take your eyes off of the floor, I painted the ceiling with Sherwin-Williams Emerald in Secret Garden.  It makes the ceiling look SO tall (it is 9 feet, so tall but not monstrous) and it is hands down my favorite dark olive green.  So moody and perfect.  I also put a really great rug down that I found for $99 on Rugs USA.

Can we just pause for a moment to kiss the macramé headboard on the mouth?  It is everything that I dreamed of and totally doable.  I wanted the macramé to be the star, but it needed a little bit of support to pull of such an amazing feat.

Love those wall mounted task lights?  Guess what?  They are SIMPLE.  Like forehead slapping simple.

Mace needed a spot to get ready in the mornings.  I hunted for days (which is a lot like months when you have 8 days to pull a room makeover together.)  Finally I found an old metal desk that had received a not-mandilicious paint job (I will show you soon).  It got a quick overhaul with white and copper spray paint, and fit perfectly in the spot that it needed to live in.

Every room needs an amazing accent wall (can I get an amen?!)

Macie’s room was no exception.  Guess what this wall treatment is made out of?

Hanging Lights Gold Wall Treatment Leather Sling Bench vintagerevivals.com

Wallpaper?  Nope. 

A stencil?  Nada.

Painted by hand?  Puleeze.

A custom stamp that I made with my Cricut Explore?  Ding Ding Ding!

The gold metallic is metallic.  It has so much shine that I had a really hard time capturing it without blowing out my picture.

Macie's Bedroom Makeover-16-2

The Tea Leaves art was inspired by my Gossip Girl binge in December.  It is just so romantic.  Chuck + Blair forever.  I asked Jamie to design something and she came up with this beautiful piece.  That girl is a genius. 

The hanging lights are such a fun way to add a little bit of simple excitement to the corner.  The DIY is really easy too.  It is almost entirely made up from materials that can be sourced locally!

Macie's Bedroom Makeover-101

 

And of course we have to talk about the leather sling bench that was made from an upcycled leather sofa.  It is just so good in here and solves our 3rd design dilemma.  Having a place for friends to hang out. (Can you see the sheen from the gold paint?)

Tomorrow I am posting all of the sources and details, and then the tutorials begin with a HUGE giveaway!  As I was writing this post I realized that aside from a few pillows and the rug,  everything else in this room was DIYed.  I cannot wait to start sharing the projects with you guys!!

Itching for more green in your life?  You have to check out Four Generations One Roof’s new bathroom and Simply Grove’s side table!  Then tomorrow you can get your fill of Red with Thistlewood Farm, I Heart Naptime, and House of Earnest.  There is lots of color inspiration over at SWpaintingweek.com, where 14 other bloggers will have their projects up over the course of the next few days.

And just for fun, lets see the before and after again, shall we?

    What a lucky girl! I can’t believe you did that so fast either. Each room in my house has taken considerably longer. In love with the macrame headboard too. My parents have a small thing of macrame from my childhood [ok, probably before that]. I never ‘got’ it until it recently got popular again. And now I’m all… “are you using that on your wall right now? But you don’t even look at that wall do you?? “

    If you like the rug, check out domino.com. I saw this amazing blog post, and then ironically found them here about five minutes later. It’s called the Belini rug…unfortunately, it’s more expensive than the Rugs USA version. Homegoods had a similar version in the Columbus, OH area this past weekend as well and it’s brighter. Happy hunting!
    In regards to the room, I cannot wait to see the lighting tutorials and I finally realized what I could do with all my succulents to prevent some clutter. Thanks Mandi! The room looks great

    OK, I’ve GOT to know what Macie’s reaction was because I took one look at the after picture and almost burst into tears. I don’t know why, it isn’t my room and I don’t even know Macie but it is so beautiful and a kidlet with a room like that would be in HEAVEN!

    Beautiful, beautiful work Mandi! The green really is the star of that room, even with all the pretty gold.

    I have the exact same sofa bed in the before but my room is waaaaay to small to be redone. I wish i could transform it like you but there simply is no chance. I still can’t believe how u did it, its absolutely gorgeous. The doors look so elegant now, a weird colour combination that surprisingly works !
    Excellent work.

I recall you saying you were going to bring back macrame and I was so thrilled, I used to do it many years ago and miss it! That piece is stunning but looks fairly simple. Do I detect copper pipe “beads” there? Goosebumps I tell you! Oh the inspiration! Can not wait for the tutorials and further info on all you created in this space.

    I love green and although it’s just used in my furniture and accessories, I may get brave enough to try it in a more permanent way.

    Wow! Absolutely stunning! First, I have just started to learn how to macrame because I have been totally obsessed with some of these great wall hangings and I’m literally in the midst of my first project. You inspired me to learn Himmeli and I’ve since made 10 different Himmeli plant hangers from brass tubing and I looove them. I cannot wait for your Macrame tutorial on the wall hanging because that is EXACTLY what I want to make but haven’t found any type of instructions out there. Second, I have been slightly obsessed with the Aura Light at Ladies and Gentleman but I had no clue or never even though about trying to DIY it. OMG, yours is so amazing. I can’t wait for your instructions. You have the absolute best DIY’s out there of any blog. The most beautiful, classy, stylish looking things that don’t look DIY at all. Everything looks very high end, very expensive. And the color palette even looks expensive. I have seen a lot of Malm pieces turned campaign style but none with leather. Love it! You’re a genius!
