The Plan – Lowe’s Fall Makeover

Our big room makeover is going down THIS SATURDAY! Where did the month go?! We cannot believe it’s already time to transform April & Mike’s master bedroom space.


Last we chatted about our Lowe’s home makeover, we introduced you to April & Mike and showed you the before pictures of their bedroom.

Since they’re the sweetest people ever their only wishlist item was for us to mount their TV. That’s it! We quickly reassured them that we could do that & much, much more!

The 4 of us decided that we wanted to create a calming master bedroom retreat, where these newlyweds could de-stress and relax after a long day. A mix of feminine & masculine, wood tones, and a neutral palette were all agreed upon too.

Our Makeover Visionlowes-makeover-43-pm

We’re planning to paint the walls a light gray (shocker!), paint all of the trim in the room white, and swap out the ceiling fan with this sleek black one.

Then we’ll add warmth to the space with new furniture and lots of texture. Incorporating flowy window treatments, a large upholstered bed, and lots of greenery are also on the agenda.

Closet Door DIY


One of the walls in the master bedroom is predominantly made up of closet doors. So we definitely want to improve them to brighten up the space and give it some character. Since the doors are not the best quality, we’re planning to paint them white, add molding, and swap out the hardware. Here’s our inspiration…

We love the modern door pattern from our inspiration pic, but plan to paint the doors white and add these long black handles.

Fauxdenza DIY


I’m still in love with the fauxdenza in our guest room, and we think that same DIY project would work perfectly in this space. We’re planning to remove the dresser and instead create the built-in floating credenza along that entire wall. Above it we’ll mount the TV, and then we’ll have room to accessorize the top of it.

We’re using different cabinets & hardware this time around, but the wood top is definitely going to be a part of this DIY.

Bringing it All Together

April & Mike each have these adorable scooters, and we definitely want to incorporate this quirky hobby into the space (& we’re thinking this Minted art would be a great addition!) Lowes_Fall_Makeover_BEFORE_April_Mike_Bedroom-8

And since they’re newlyweds, we just might have to sneak some new wedding pictures into the space too!

All in all we’re geared up for our big makeover weekend, but we will admit that we’re a little anxious about pulling it off with such a tight deadline! Wish us luck and be sure to follow along this weekend on social media.
