Barb’s shabby chic bedroom

Barb’s bedroom came together from bits and pieces. Who would have known! Very shabby chic.

She says, “The bed started with two Ikea TV benches from a few years back (sorry, don’t know the name) and grew from there – a sheet of MDF on top, an old door for the footboard and a couple of found pallets for the headboard. Lots of storage and a very comfy place to sleep!

For the closet, I wanted mirrors and storage. My budget was tight, so that ruled out the Pax mirrored-door wardrobe solution. Instead, I went with two Stark hall units, built out from the wall. Basic closet guts and curtains added the extra storage I needed. So it’s light, cheerful and cheap!
