Bedroom Upgrades

As I mentioned yesterday, the bedroom is far from done. One of the biggest tasks on our to-do list is building doors for our closets.



The curtains were always a temporary solution, because I knew it would be a while before we’d be able to get to building doors. The big closet will have two sliding doors, and the closets around the bed will have matching doors on hinges. Hopefully, they will get done in the next month or two. Here are some ideas we are drawing inspiration from…

The door below is probably my favorite. We will see what we end up with, but I wouldn’t mind it if they ended up looking just like this.

Apart from the closet door project, we are also planning on building a bed. Here are a couple of inspiration pictures…

Lastly, I need to somehow update the dresser that we have.


The dresser has a story… My dad built it when my mom was pregnant with their first and it was in the nursery when my sisters and I were babies. It’s neat to have something that my dad built, but 30+ years later I wish it were a little more modern. I’m planning to overhaul it a little. I’m not sure how. I may paint portions or all of it white, but I’m not sure yet. Here are a few inspiration ideas…

I love the plain white and gold detail dresser, but my dresser doesn’t have as clean of lines so I’m not sure it would translate in the same way.

It’s tempting to paint some sort of clean line shape on it to detract from the curves. I would not, of course, these choose bright colors.

Or maybe I’ll try just painting a portion of it, like the drawers. We will see… Either way, we’ve got some serious work to do in the bedroom before she’s done!
