You all know how much I love a room makeover! So when ALDI reached out and asked if I wanted to partner up to transform a space with decor from their store, my first response, “I didn’t know ALDI had home decor!” Then they told me about the ALDI Finds section and its seasonal items, including decor and organization products that I could use to turn my blank room into a budget-friendly haven! I accepted the challenge and was excited to transform the one undecorated room in my house into a super sweet room that would be perfect for a guest, a teen or could inspire a dorm room or bedroom in a first apartment. And the timing was perfect because my little sister is visiting from Europe for a couple weeks and it’s the perfect guest room for her 🙂
I started with a blank slate!
I knew I wanted to create another DIY painted wall, so I came up with the idea of painting it this light pinky beige and drawing on a pattern with a gold sharpie paint pen! Head over to my IGTV for a video tutorial of how I created it. I takes a *little* more measurement then my last freehand design, but I give some tips in the video that speeds up the process (this wall took about 2 hours to draw on the pattern)
Then it was time to decorate! First I started by picking my items, sticking with neutrals, mostly grays and tans, with a couple pops of pale pink. Before putting everything in the room, I stopped by the ALDI Finds section, with $50 in my pocket to spend, for just a couple more items to round out the room. I scored some of my favorite items in the room: the wood clock, “Out of Office” hat, gold scissors and desk set, plus the flowers and some succulents! I got home and gave myself an hour to decorate the space and I JUST LOVE how it came together!! It’s so fun how the wall and clock patterns play off each other, and how inviting and cozy the soft colors and textures feel in the room. And can you believe almost EVERYTHING in this room is from ALDI (the bed, comforter, lamp and books are the only things I already had). The rug! The bedding! The “marble” side table! The ottoman! The macramé wall decorations! Even the details like the coffee cup, letter board, diffuser, and candle! All ALDI and all under $185 , which is amazing if you are looking to do a room makeover on a budget!

About a month ago I headed out to HighPoint, NC with 8 other bloggers to take part in the Design Dash hosted by La-Z-boy, and it was SO MUCH FUN! What’s the Design Dash, you ask?! Well, they gave us 30 min to run through their HUUUUGE showroom tagging everything that we thought we would need to design a room. It was so crazy! We were handed a picture of the room as the 30 minutes began, and I totally lucked out because my space was STUNNING, look at those ceilings! I had no idea how 30 minutes was going to be enough time, but honestly everything I picked in the first 10 min went into my room and the rest got cut, shows that you should listen to your first instincts in design! The next day we had about 4 hours to style our room, and LOVE how mine turned out. EVERY thing in this room is from La-Z-boy, can you believe it?!? I want to transport this room to my Barnhouse renovation.

This mirror was a SHOWSTOPPER! The scale was amazing with the tall ceilings and the gold brought the right amount of warmth to the room.
I am in love with the fabric on the Bellevue High Swivel chairs! I am getting this same pattern put on a Chair and a half for my latest renovation.
This charred root coffee table was stunning and was perfect to ground the center of the room. They also had it in natural wood, which I loved and if I had to do it all over again, I might have picked.
I loved how this little faux leather ottoman was stylish and multi-functional as a side table or could be swung around to put your feet up on.
This solid wood desk had a antique feel that fit the room perfectly. I styled it up with old letters and can picture this in the office of the Barnhouse!

Last Summer, I showed you all my bathroom makeover here, and when I posted that I was thinking of redoing it on @ispydiy Instagram, a lot of you though I was crazy, but I wanted the bathroom to be a little calmer, plus the since the 125 year old walls are not straight, and the wallpaper had a couple gaps that were driving me insane! To fix that, I did a board and batten treatment on the lower part of the wall, tutorial here, and just wallpapered the top. I used Chasing Paper’s removable wallpaper, so the removing the old stuff was SUPER simple, it pealed right off. I picked the Botany print because it’s softer and felt super calming…read on for details or head to the end of the post for shopping credits!
I went back and forth on the color of the board and batten, I like this soft gray by Behr – Statuesque, but thought it might be too boring, so got a few samples of bolder grays, peaches and pinks, but all seemed to intense next to the hexagon floors and the white door trim. I should have trusted my first instinct because I ended up going back and getting at gallon of Statuesque, and I LOVE it! It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but it’s a little darker then the trim, which is Ultra White by HGTV for Sherwin Williams, and works beautifully with the clay background of the wallpaper and the gray floors.
Two updates in the room that I am SO HAPPY with are the little stool in the corner and the new art. The Tana stool is from Article and is just so beautiful. I actually ended up getting two more for the livingroom and added a wax and oil coat on them, but left the one in the bathroom au natural because I love the softer wood tone. And the art from Society 6 tied the whole bathroom together! I just love this one, called Bath, and the floral art, Spring, a few photos down, the colors were perfectly muted.
