Lucy's Vintage Inspired Bedroom - Like Honey

Lucy's Vintage Inspired Bedroom

Every little girl deserves a room with pink walls, do they not? The big kids have been sharing a room since we moved into this house a little over 2 years ago, so you can imagine how excited Lucy was to finally have her own space!



At a glance, it doesn't really look like we did much to change this room aside from paint the walls, but we actually completely gutted the old plaster walls and ceiling and replaced them with drywall. I love to preserve as much history as I can, but the plaster was crumbling and riddled with lead paint--for us, the decision to replace with drywall was the safest option. This also allowed us to close up a doorway that wasn't necessary anymore between this room and the boys' room.

We actually had this waterfall dresser at our old house with intentions to use it in our master bedroom, but our direction changed, we moved house, and it has been sitting in our garage since. Fast forward to Fall 2021 when my father-in-law calls from a thrift store to ask if I want a waterfall bed frame for Lucy for $10--uh, of course! I immediately remembered this old dresser sitting in storage and knew that would be the perfect start to her bedroom.

The nightstand was another find courtesy of my father-in-law. He actually picked it up on the side of the road for free and let me have it! I painted it with some of the leftover trim paint and swapped the knobs and it was all finished for less than $20! I love how it turned out!

And finally, I had to give my little bookworm the reading nook I always wanted as a little girl! I thought about installing a window seat there, but with the chimney next to the closet the spacing wasn't quite right. Then Preston found this chair on Facebook marketplace and it was the perfect match. It's her favorite spot in her room now and she wakes up every day and curls up in this little spot with her cozy blanket and a book.

Outside of replacing the walls and ceiling, I think this room makeover was around $500 total with paint and furniture. We lucked out with some really affordable thrifted furniture and turned this basic bedroom into a cozy, vintage-inspired haven perfect for a girl of any age! I really love how it turned out and I think it's going to be easy for Lucy to grow with it for years to come.
