A Simple Mountain Cottage Bedroom

The downstairs bedroom at the Mountain Cottage has come a long way. It's not 100% finished yet, but it's starting to come together nicely.

The room was really dark with the country blue wallpapered walls and frilly ruffled curtains covering most of the windows. If you'd like to see what steps we went through to get that wallpaper off the wall, you can see it HERE.  

The vintage ladder holds Mr. DIY's sarape. 

After taking several weekends to paint the closet doors,  they were finally installed in the opening. It's amazing how much bigger the room feels now. Before, the doors were stained a dark brown. 

We moved the little vintage cabinet into the corner. A little lamp was initially put on top, but it didn't look quite right. We plan to put a small flat screen inside the cabinet.

I found two of these night stands on They were a great price and two of them will fit on either side of a queen size bed on this small wall, but it will be tight. I'm thinking of painting them a slate gray.
The rug is a new addition and I love how it makes the room feel a little more cozy. I ordered the rug from Rugs

Even though this bedroom is small, it will eventually get a queen size bed. We aren't quite ready for guests yet, since most of the Mountain Cottage is still a construction zone, so for now, a twin will do. 

The lamp with the blue lamp shade looks better on the vintage cabinet.  In my last post, I showed you how we fixed the inside of the cabinet and replaced a missing piece. You can see it HERE.

Mr. DIY couldn't resist changing up the vintage ladder vignette and making it his own. 
lol. Looks more like the wild, wild west with the sarape and rifle. 
Slowly things are getting checked off the list. Still need to make a trip to Ikea for some curtains and I think I have the perfect artwork for above the bed.  
Hope your week is off to a good start!

PS: I found the little cabinet and ladder at Kiki's Kottage in Pineville, NC


  1. What a huge difference. That vintage cabinet in the corner and the ladder are great pieces. Amazing what paint can do


  2. The room looks great now! Wallpaper is such a pain to remove- I won't put any up again after all I went through to remove it from our house. The vintage cabinet looks great in this room and I like the ladder accent with or without the gun! I have small bedrooms so I know what it's like to try and get every inch used.

  3. Looks great Pam!!!...and your posts are coming back to my email !!!...

  4. The room looks so fresh and updated, Pam. I really like the changes you made.
