My Bedroom Makeover ft. Ecomovers

Monday, September 29, 2014
A few weeks ago I was kindly sent a range of packaging boxes and packaging tape from the brand EcoMovers which came in very handy as at the beginning of September I had my bedroom redecorated - lots of painting, wallpapering, five trips to Ikea, building new wardrobes/storage and organising later and my room now looks so much better! The boxes came in really handy, I thought that the large boxes would be too big but it turns out that I have a lot of bags and shoes, probably more than a normal person should have....the large boxes have a diagram on the top of a house with rooms so you can quickly and easily glance at the box and know exactly what is in it. 
The boxes and tape made the whole chaotic process a little more organised and it kept the items from getting dusty. When I finished with a box, I gave them to my auntie who has just moved house and they also came in really useful for her! 

If you are interested in the main items in my room, here is the run down: Pax Wardrobe, Malm 3 Drawer Storage and mattress are all from Ikea (I LOVE Ikea!). My two candles are also from Ikea, I think they were 50p each - bargain. My bookshelf/hook is from Urban Outfitters as is my grey skull money box. My main lamp shade is from Joss and Main. I also have a giant light bulb table lamp from Homebase which I adore (photo on my instagram: heathernixon4). 

As well as a makeover, I have also tried to reduce the amount of clothing and shoes I have which is no easy task! I have so many shoes and coats it is a bit ridiculous and I always think that I need them all. Safestore have a great post all about making your perfect capsule wardrobe so you can pair back everything and just keep what you need and wear. 

What do you think of my bedroom makeover? Will you be redecorating for autumn/winter? If you want more posts on my decor or storage let me know in the comments! 


  1. Your room looks amazing! I 100% need a new wardrobe, but i just have no room for one!
    Love VictoriaJanex

    1. Thank you! My room is tiny, the ikea wardrobes are fantastic for smaller rooms especially if you get them with sliding doors, it saves a lot of room x

  2. i need a new wardrobe too
    loved the light fixture
    Keep in touch

  3. I think Ikea is the go-to place for bloggers who are into the whole white/chic/tumblr design aesthetic, haha. I've been collecting bits and pieces lately but needs to fork out for a new bed and vanity to complete my make over! x

  4. Ikea is great. When I first moved out, I salvaged a few pieces I picked up from the curb, but the rest of my stuff mostly came from Ikea because it's pretty basic stuff with reasonable price tags. And they're easy to assemble!

    Your room looks very clean and organized. I wish I could say the same about mine, haha.

    1. Thank you! I love ikea, it is fantastic for students x

  5. Ooh I actually really like the black skull. Totally wouldn't go in my room, but oh well!
