Bedroom Makeover at 5th Place Cottage

I'm eager to share our latest room makeover at 5th Place Cottage! I hope I don't bore you to tears with the large amount of photos!...


Challenges were of plenty in this room, but this once dark and musty room is now as fresh as a daisy! 


The antique Victorian cabinet in the corner was painted Cottage linen and not only looks great, it provides desperately needed storage for linens in this tiny cottage.  Shhhhhh......there's a tv hiding in there too.


I found this treasure at Hector and Susie's place, Fundustrial in Warrenton / Round Top last Fall.
The huge mirror helps to enlarge the small room, I snagged it from Marcie and Mayron.    
Check out the bed crown....its a zinc range hood in "as found" condition!  We found this at the Fredericksburg Trade Days last year. 
 I hung our smocked white bed throws inside of it to create a canopy.  Isn't the mix wonderful?!
Hubby hung a small prism chandy from the shoppe inside.....it makes the perfect reading light.
Look at the amazing detail in the vintage vent-a-hood.  And the perfect amount of rusty patina!  
The greenery is compliments of a tree in the sideyard....don't you love simple greenery!

The sheer white smocked top drapes let in beautiful filtered light.
I bought this heavy antique iron bed from Lillie of the Junk Palace on our girl's road trip last year...it's perfect for 5th Place. 


Painting the floors white was an adventure that paid off big in this room!  I fell in love with the white floors on the Swedish blogs and knew I had to try it.  We may paint all the floors of 5th Place white.....over time.
Small architectural things always make it into the decorating details of my rooms....they feel like art to me.
It's so nice to see these before I go to sleep.
A collection of random brushes are tucked under the cloche.
I've collected vintage baby dresses for a long time....they are so much prettier framed and hung on the wall.  The backdrop....what else but bleached burlap.

A vintage flip top dining table paired with a burlap slipcovered chair makes the perfect desk for this space!
What are those big dome things you might ask....they are a pair of iron industrial harbor lights....just wonderful!
Vintage petite fish bowls on a tray make the perfect desk organizer!




I love the way the sunlight plays on the white floor....this room feels so fresh and I'm so pleased with the finished result.

And so you can really truly appreciate our efforts, check out the transformation in the before and after photos!



Are ya diggin it?  Tell me what you think!!

ritad said...

What a great makeover! So fresh and airy and a wonderful place for sleeping. I am very interested in the floors that you painted white. What paint did you use? How do you take care of them, are they hard to take care of? Do they show dust?
I'm really loving the white rooms we see everywhere. Your's is just luscious.

Christina said...

linda's Blue Gate said...

Laurie Ann,
What you have done in the 5th Cottage is amazing. I have not told you but I fell in love with that house 15 years ago when we moved to Wills Point. It had a tiny greenhouse made of windows and that is where I got the idea for making my Yard Conservatoires..... you know like Tina has. I made my "Blue Gate the shape of the gate going in the back yard. But you have truly made it into a DREAM HOME..... PERFECT.. utterly PERFECT
HUgs
Linda

LaurieAnna's Vintage Home said...

Linda, I had no idea....what an inspirational snippet of life. That makes the lil place all the more special to me!

Your bedroom looks amazing!!! Love it!! We just finished one at our house too, very similar linens! In fact, I think our pillows are identical! :) The zinc hood looks so cool ~ I really would love to come down to Texas & do some serious shopping! I also really like the painted white floors. I have been wanting to try that but have flat out chickened out!! Did you use porch paint? love it!! Enter me please!! :)

trash talk said...

I'm going to quit coming over here 'cause I always feel like such a slug when I see all that you get accomplished. Would you believe I have a bedroom that's been waiting for me to do some major redecorating in for a year? Yeah...that's me.
It is just beautiful L.A. and once again you've demonstrated why you are the queen...complete with a bed crown!

Love your blog and love your style. The bedroom is beautiful! My question on the white floor is I wonder how resilient it would be for little paws? Thanks for the chance to enter the giveaway, count me in!

LaurieAnna's Vintage Home said...

In answer to your question, we clear- coated the white floor with a high gloss sealer and it's as easy to maintain as a vinyl floor. Just sweep and mop. We have pets and I am looking forward to the character that scratches and dings will bring over the years! Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa said...

Love the vent hood canopy, what a gorgeous find! Only one problem, I would never want to get out of bed if my room looked like this. Room service, anyone? LOL!

OMG Laurieanna, this room is amazing. I adore what you did with the bed and the floors, beautiful! Please share what kind of paint did you use on the floor? It doesn't look like a flat nor a gloss. Was it a semi gloss finish. This is almost as confusing to me as which white to choose. Thanks.

Well done!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I do not possess the words... and that is a very rare thing. This is absolutely beautiful to me. It's exactly the way that the cottage that lives in my mind is dressed.


I wish that I could single out a favorite part. It MIGHT be the crown canopy over the bed. However, the rest is so lovely that I would hate to leave it out.

Perfection, pure and simple!

I was delighted to read your comment on my blog and yet more delighted to meander back here to find this.

I'm so inspired!

I love your makeover ... but was also a little bit sad. I'd been talking about your range hood since our last trip to Canton and FINALLY convinced my hub to let me have it for my birthday. : ( And now you have it somewhere in 5th place. I'll be there at the end of this month, and hopefully you'll have something else I just "have to have" to take it's place. : ) Amazing makeover though!!!

Gretchen said...

What a fabulous room transformation you've created for yourselves. Love the bed canopy, and its an amazingly creative re purpose for sure. I bet you are thrilled with the results!
Love the white painted floors too, and thinking with my white cat, that may be the answer to my potential problems of a new wood floor. lol
Lots of eye candy and inspiration here.
Stop on over for a visit on my blog.

Just read thru your bedroom re-do and you mentioned a "cottage linen" paint color - could you please tell me who makes that - I would love to try that color - it looks amazing in your photos. Thanks so much - have a wonderful Monday!!

Hi, love, love love, your bedroom makeover had to stroll back thru for inspiration...could you tell me who makes the "Cottage Linen" paint you used on the cabinet. Thanks so much.

How beautiful it turned out!

Ellie Santangelo said...

Hi Laurie,

I've had this idea for doing some kind of industrial awning over top my bed with a canopy and have not been able to find any good examples online - and then I found this! It's exactly what I had pictured in my mind. Never occurred to me to use a range hood. Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to find one in my area (not to mention if I did it'd probably be pretty pricey!).

So, I'm going to mock it out. I'm going to get some thin wood and moulding from Home Depot and create my own and faux finish it to look rustic and zinc-like. Anyway, I wanted to know, how does the width of the hood compare to the width of the bed? I'm trying to figure out my measurements :P. Thanks so much and wish me luck hehe!

You have such a wonderful blog! The pictures are lovely! The best thing about your blog is that you are able to share great ideas in home designs. The lighting effect in the room is just fantastic. And I love that bed! It feels like you are inside a fairy tale while on that bed. The room looks so peaceful and relaxing.

Nelly@DGInnovations said...

I love this room! So charming! I could have a restful night's rest in this room for sure! My fave is the little chandelier above the bed! So Elegant!

Home Designer said...

The new design looks very updated. You have matched all the facilities that transform to a very class aura. Well, you can achieve an old room to have a new look if you are planning it carefully. And congratulations! You made it! A simple old room, once applied by mixing and matching of designs, the result is satisfactory. I love how you have done this process because I am impressed on the result! Just a simple advice, take good care of your design interior to make it lasts long. That's all!
