a makeover revealed.

Can't believe it's already Friday. 

I intended to post this earlier in the week and earlier in the day, but I haven't had time. Life has been full. But, anyway, I just want to share some shots of the finished bedroom. Just to recap, I recently surprised my friend with a bedroom overhaul. Here were some before shots of their awkward attic space:

And here is what I assembled for inspiration:

And here are the afters. This was an incredibly tough room to photograph, because there are no windows, and the space makes it awkward to get a nice wide angle shot. Some of the shots are from SLR's but there are some iPhone shots mixed in, as well.

 We removed the bottom shelf from the wall, so the headboard could fit underneath and create a bed nook. It also allows for more space around the bed.

 I will do a separate post on this, but here is my faux reclaimed lumber headboard. This was sort of the crown jewel of the whole project for me. It was a really fun challenge, and I can't wait to share more of the process.

 One challenge of the space was that the lightbulb socket over the bed didn't have it's own light switch, so I had to find a pendant fixture with a pull chain or turnkey. Most of the cool ones I found were pretty expensive on Etsy, but thankfully I found a more reasonable option at Home Depot.

 Most of the stuff on the shelf was just rearranged from what Naomi already had on hand, but I added a fun DIY canvas and and pair of candlesticks I picked up for $3 at the thrift store. They look very much like the pair West Elm sells here.

 Just a close up of the "weathered" wood.

 Here is the aforementioned dresser and a chair I picked up for cheap at Target. I made the throw pillow from a pillow case I got for a couple bucks in the IKEA as-is section. The Hunter fan was on end of season clearance at Target for less than $30. I love it.

 I made some large plywood letters out of the leftover plywood backer for the headboard. I kept them pretty rustic (meaning I couldn't make a straight line with the jigsaw, and I didn't bother with sanding them...) I love them, though.

So, that's pretty much it, but here are a couple side by sides, so you can see the transformation:

Also, I just want to give major props to my man, Pete. He did most of the photography for me.

 Risking his very life for my blog.
