Bedroom 2: Cottage House Flip Reveal

It’s Day 2 and Room 2 of the Bedroom Reveal Week! Yesterday you witnessed the transformation of Bedroom #1, and today we’re shifting gears with something quite a bit smaller, but with a unique personality of its’ own. Click to watch the Before & After transformation below:


Just a few steps down the hall from the master suite was a crowded room with a quaint little nook:



With pale blue polkda dot wallpaper and a blue comforter to match.


To add a little architectural interest and double as a headboard, I did a quick DIY shiplap installation with a picture ledge:


Then came paint and flooring:


But I loved this nook so much that I left it completely original 🙂


A little staging and poof! We have our new and improved Bedroom 2…


I love that the nook is the first thing you see when you walk inside.


And the shiplap isn’t bad either.


The navy buffalo check bedding was the first thing I bought for this room, and designed around that incorporating woodsy elements like a tree stump side table and deer pillow. I love the cabin feel it brings.


The shelf ledge was perfect for a few light pieces of art, which I made from DIY art and a map of the town found in one of the closets, placed in inexpensive Ikea frames.


I actually had the bedding set up a bit differently, but the Country Living stylist brought in a striped pillow and switched a couple things around, so I left it that way for my shoot. Who am I to mess with the pros?


And here’s a pro tip: if you don’t have a duvet cover—use a sheet, blanket or bedspread to wrap around your comforter to fake the look. The stylist taught me this, and that’s what we did here using an Ikea bedspread 🙂


Hello, deer.



This quilted bedskirt is so lovely, I actually bought one for Bedroom #3 as well.

Tomorrow I’ll be revealing the room I spent the most time on, thanks to the wall stencil. It’s the first little girls room I’ve ever designed so I’m excited to share the results!

  1. Seriously, SO charming! So bright and airy, yet cozy! I really can’t wait to see it all in the magazine spread!

  2. Another great bedroom! I love the duvet cover “trick”. How many coats did you use with the grey paint on the shiplap?

  3. Wow, very nice! So smart to do the boards on the bed wall to tie it into the other wall, what a difference. Any offers on the house yet?

  4. Hey Jenna,

    I love the look of the bedspread, but there isn’t an Ikea near me. Have you seen anything similar available online?

  5. How is the heated? I just wondered that when looking at the window seat. All of the windows in my house have a heat vent under the window and I was thinking of adding a window seat to one room, but it will have to have it be a ledge seat so I’m not blocking the heat. Beautiful work!

  6. That wall and ledge are so clever! Really impressed with how it changes out the feel of the entire room and creates a headboard look – this little room is wonderful!
