Our thrifty spring cottage style bedroom feels so warm and full of life! I love how so many of my thrifted and second hand finds came together to create a space that is cozy and serene.
This thrifty spring cottage style bedroom is a space that has slowly come together over the last eight years. Almost everything in this room was either given to us, purchased at a thrift store or found on Facebook marketplace. I recently added a few accents to make it feel like spring, and I’m so excited to be sharing this space with you guys!
You guys already know how much I love faux stems and flowers. At this time of year we still have a bit of snow on the ground and fresh flowers are both difficult to find and also very pricey. I love incorporating greenery to make a space feel alive and refreshed.
The washstand style nightstand was a thrift store find at just fifteen bucks, and some simple faux flowers in a vase instantly makes the room feel like spring. I also added some flowers to the dough bowl that sits on top of my painted dresser with raw wood drawers.
For the bedding, I’m still using the linen duvet that I thrifted (brand new) along with a new accent pillow that I only paid twelve dollars for at Marshall’s. Something about the soft stripe felt like spring to me, and I love the cream fringe detail on the pillow as well. Everything pops so nicely against our DIY drop cloth head board!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me playing with acrylics this past weekend! I had some fun painting and ended up creating three landscape prints for our bedroom. I just love the way they turned out! Each scene reminds me of the sand dunes down in North Carolina where we visit each year. They are covered in grass and shrubs with sandy walk ways that lead to each beach house, and now every time I look at my paintings, wonderful memories start flooding back!
The last thing I did in order to decorate for spring was add some sun hats to the hooks near our bed. I shared this in our entryway tour last week, but simple changes like this make such a difference! I just love the color and texture of sunhat and they instantly add so much warmth.
Our bedroom space is sort of long and narrow, so we decided to add a sectional couch to the area opposite of our bed. It has become the best place for us to hang out as a family and cozy up for movie nights! It’s almost like a second living space now.
I also brought up a small table and chairs for the boys to color or have snacks, and they love it so much. The table was my Mom’s when she was a little girl, and the chippy blue chair was pulled from the church that my dad used to attend as a little boy.
The wooden potty chair was an antique store find and at ten bucks, it was too cute to leave at the store! Now it’s a bit of a joke – who gets to sit in the potty chair hehehe. I promise, the hole is so small that it works perfectly fine as a regular chair! Sure makes us laugh, though!
Well I hope you enjoyed this thrifty spring cottage style bedroom tour. I know it was very simple, but that seems to be what I’m craving these days. Have you decorated for spring yet?
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!!
