Bedroom Makeover

We live in a 90 year old heritage style home. We purchased the home from my grandparents before they passed away. We have slowly been renovating the home trying to keep some of the original charm.


Our most recent project has started with the help of Wholesale Furniture Brokers. I was looking for a new dresser/chest as well as matching nightstands. I knew I was getting new bedding for Christmas, so I wanted high quality furniture that would look great in the room.

nightstand Although I am comfortable shopping online I never really considered buying furniture online before this. I found the website very easy to navigate and simple to use.  Everything was clearly laid out and I loved that I could call in to the toll free number to place my order. The person who helped me was easy to understand and the process only took a few minutes. The items we decided on were from the “Quick Ship In Canada” section. Items from that section leave the warehouse  in 1 – 3 business days with an estimated delivery of 1 – 17 business days. They offer Free Shipping on everything and additional discounts in major cities across Canada. My experience of having the items shipped was great. The items arrived right to my home in perfect condition within a week.

I decided on the 500 Series cappuccino nightstands and 5 drawer chest by Lifestyle Solutions.

I was drawn towards these furniture pieces because they seemed like they would be quality products that would last. The drawers of both the chest and nightstands have English dovetail joints, reinforced wood blocks, smooth open and close glides, felt lined top drawers and solid wood drawer boxes.


I also liked that the dark color of this series would match beautifully with the original wood window frames and baseboards of the bedroom.

Are you ready to see the bedroom makeover?

I am so happy with how my bedroom makeover turned out. The old frames on each side of the bed are embroidery scenes that were made for my grandma by a friend of hers. They are special to me so I wanted to include them. I like mixing old with new.


The nightstands are perfect! My husband has his books and tablet on the inside shelf which keeps the top from getting cluttered.


The dresser chest is such a beautiful piece of furniture too. My husband bought me some beautiful flowers that I placed on top and I just love how it looks.



I love that I have beautiful, high quality furniture pieces that will last for many years.

Do you love your bedroom furniture?

    oh my i love this room,so relaxing

  2. Wow what an amazing difference! Turned out beautiful!!

  3. I love how you incorporated the new with the old. Beautiful!

  4. I love the colour scheme! It’s very modern yet very cozy feeling! Love it

  5. I don’t really have proper bedroom furniture, I hang up most of my clothing. I would love to purchase a matching set soon, and will have to keep this site in mind. I love the set that you chose! I would probably go with a darker colour too. I also love how you incorporated the framed embroidery :) It looks wonderful!

    • Thanks Sarah. I can not speak highly enough about this furniture. It truly exceeded my expectations, it is beautiful and the quality is impressive. It fit absolutely perfectly into the room and I love it so much. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

    Beautiful job! Not good Feng Shui to have mirrors in bedroom though

  7. Nena Sinclair says:

    You did a wonderful job decorating, Jody! Your bedroom looks warm and relaxing!

  8. Shannon Gnocato says:

    Such a nice relaxing oasis. Wish my bedroom were as such.

  9. You and your hubby have done such an amazing job with the transformation! :) I just love the colors you have chosen to use – very beautiful! want to come to my home and make it over? 😉

  10. Tara Gauthier says:

    Funny that you mention it. We hate our bedroom furniture, which is stuff from my husbands childhood. However, our dining room table needs replaced badly so the bedroom will likely take a back burner for now.

  11. I really like your colour combination! Very relaxing.

  12. i love bedroom makeovers i watch the tv programs it gives you ideas on what you want to do with your own rooms especically when they become b oring after awhile

  13. I love it! It looks so serene. Where did you get the bedding from? It’s beautiful.

  14. What a great job!

  15. Wow! I love it! I love the blue accent pillows and the mirrors above the bed! Everything looks fabulous! I am going to have to check out their site because we need a couple of new dressers in this house and the quality sounds exactly like what we need to invest in for our home. The dresser and the night stands have the kind of beautiful clean lines that I love for furniture investments. And I think that after a bed, the nightstands are so important for bedroom comfort! And I like the storage that they offer as well! Beautiful bedroom and excellent job!

  16. Chalbe/Charlotte says:

    Nice job, there are a few things I can use in my house.

  17. Holly Wright says:

    great colours

  18. Thanks, I will have to look into what Wholesale Furniture Brokers offers.

  19. I love your bedroom makeover especially the colours of the furniture with the bedspread!

  20. Deb Dorrington says:

    What a beautiful and relaxing bedroom you have created. The night tables and dresser are stunning pieces of furniture. I love the colors of your bedding, great job!!

  21. Wow! You did a lovely job! I just ordered some beds for my girls from WFB. I am glad to see you were happy with them.

  22. Your makeover reminded me that I still have to get a headboard. We have pictures of Paris that I had framed so that it would remind me of where we spent our honeymoon. I love the laps but I really love night tables… they are gorgeous. You did such a nice job. Well done!

  23. We also are redoing a older home. They have their challenges but are worth it when they turn out so beautiful.

    • You are right, there sure are challenges, but it is so worth it! How many rooms have you finished already?

      • We have redone the 2 ground floor bedrooms, living room, kitchen and working on the bathroom. The attic area is still in discussion as to what we will do up there. lol We purchased a small hobby farm and there was a lot of work to be done outside. We have replaced most of the fencing and have turned over and reseeded the hayfields. We replaced one of the barn roofs and this summer we just finished the new hayshed. It has been a challenge but one I would not change for the world.

  24. those pillows really pop and add to the room

  25. Elaine Jasvins says:

  31. This room is beautiful. Fresh, classy and relaxing. I love those old homes. Ours is late 1800’s. I love to mix the old style with new comforts.
