Kate's bedroom makeover

I’ve shared a lot of Instagram updates on my daughter Kate’s bedroom makeover, and today I’m excited to share ALL of the sources with you! If you’ve been wondering where to find any of the bedroom furniture, decor, or accessories, you’ll find it all here in this post!

Kate’s bedroom makeover was definitely a labor of love, but it was SO worth it! She is loving her room, and now it’s one of my favorite places in our house, too.

Part of this room makeover included installing a new IKEA Pax built-in closet. You can see all the details of that project HERE.

Check out my post to find out where I sourced everything from her quilt and full-length mirror to her rug and curtains.

Kate’s Bedroom Furniture Sources

The following lists gives you direct links to almost EVERYTHING I bought for her room—except the desk, bed, and nightstand, which I bought secondhand at a thrift store. But don’t worry. I’ll share links to similar bedroom furniture below this list!

Natural Wood Beds Roundup

Since I bought Kate’s bed secondhand, I don’t have an exact source to link to. It’s probably very old and I honestly don’t know where it originally came from! I love that it has an heirloom quality and feels like it could be passed on for generations.

However, it did require a LOT of work to refinish it. The sanding took much longer than I expected and I can totally understand why someone wouldn’t want to undertake this kind of project.

Thankfully, there are plenty of new, natural wood beds that give a similar look!

Check out the list below to find a natural wood bed without all the work of sanding and refinishing a secondhand bed.

Pink/Mauve Nightstands Roundup

I also bought Kate’s nightstand secondhand. But after all of the sanding I had gone through with the bed, I decided to take a simpler approach to revamping the nightstand. I ended up painting it a beautiful mauve pink (after just one quick round of sanding).

Here are a few nightstands that look similar to the one I refinished!

Natural Wood Desks Roundup

I couldn’t believe my luck, but I was also able to find a beautiful wood desk at a thrift store for Kate’s room! I love the unique details on this desk, especially when paired with a more modern chair.

Here are some natural wood desks I found that look similar to the one I thrifted!

Photo Collage

I think photos in a teen room are so fun. We made this collage photo wall with Mixtiles. They’re each 8″ x 8″ and come printed, framed and ready to hang! There’s an adhesive strip on the back of each one that makes them easy to stick to the wall. They’re also removable and reconfigurable without damaging the wall at all.

Happy shopping!

If you’re making over a teen girls room (or your own!), I hope these sources are helpful. I spend a lot of time hunting down the best decor and accessories to create this space. I’m so glad it all came together and is a space Kate can enjoy for years to come!

I like to hang out on Instagram and share more in-depth tutorials on everything I make, create, and organize.  Come be a part of our Home & Kind Instagram community.
