Bedroom Makeover

Over two years ago, I was shopping in Heaven, aka, Junk Stock (Omaha, NE) and spotted these 2 lamps at the Nodding Goat Home booth.

Lightning struck and I thought they would look amazing in my bedroom since green is my favorite color.

It took awhile but I finally got a vision and collected new bedding and vintage furniture to complete the look.  I painted the walls with Versatile Gray from Sherwin Williams and had new carpeting installed.

I painted the dressers and headboard with General Finishes Milk Paint in Lamp Black.  The nightstands and blanket chest were done with a homemade chalky paint using Sherwin Williams Shamrock and glazing with General Finishes Van Dyke Brown glaze.

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with how it all turned out.  I think even Joanna Gaines would approve!  I'm calling it Farm House Fresh, and proved that farm house style doesn't have to mean white only.  I was able to pull it off using my personal favorite color, Emerald Green, so I think it can be done with yours!

Here's another last look at the before and after:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love these pieces..everything is so unique and work well together!

  2. I love how you used your lucky find of the lamps to be your jumping off point for your bedroom. You have a beautiful room and I would have never guessed that you had painted your furniture. Great job!
