Bedroom Decorating: Fun & Funky

Today's living-room-turned-bedroom-while-I-redecorate-the-master-bedroom-makeover is playful and fun with a touch of whimsy. It can work for a kid room or for the kid in all of us.
Instead of a loveseat, another cute option would be to line up a collection of foot stools all along the bottom of the bed. Perhaps different shape stools all painted the same color or the same shape stools painted in different colors. Ooooh!

This is actually a coat tree serving as a nightstand. I love all it's intricacies.  
By the way, that's just flaked off paint at the bottom, not mold. I actually had to get up and check when I saw this picture.
I cheated a little when it came to this piece.  I don't normally have a top for the hall tree.  When I started putting bedrooms together this week, I said I would only use pieces found in my living room.  Well, I don't have a slab of wood in my living room so I borrowed one from my next door neighbors. (Thank you, Karen & Alanna!) 

Wouldn't this be adorable painted with chalk paint to write your kids or your sweetie messages?!

Who wouldn't love a darling teddy bear in their bed?  The typography pillow has tons of character/attitude.

This old wood bucket keeps favorite books neat and tidy.

Isn't decorating with toys "o so fun"?

How about a little antique chair in a cozy corner to read those favorite books?

Pair up a solid pillow with one covered with your favorite book or cartoon character.

Throws are a great way to snuggle in bed for a quick nap (huh, nap?  what's that?) without messing up all the covers. If you don't have a throw, fold a treasured quilt and lay it at the bottom of a bed.

A sewing stand can function as a desk. Just like a cigar mold can function as a pencil holder. Just like a box spring can function as a brush holder. Of course!

After this room makeover, it's taken every ounce of self control (which ain't all that much) to not drop the master bedroom redo and start one of the kids' rooms instead.  But I'm staying focused... for now. :)

No kidding! You may never want to move out of the living room. Maybe just make the living room the master bedroom and the master bedroom can become the living room! The coat tree rack thing is beautiful!

Hi Yanet,
Oh that is fun they look like they kinda go together! I love that you used the hall tree as a night stand, it is a fun piece:-)
