Another day, another pretty bedroom makeover that's making us want to redecorate our own spaces! With so many house tours popping up, especially from our favorite celebs, it can be easy to forget that you don't need to hire professionals to change the look and feel of your personal space. Rose Ann Cameros Dator and her husband, for example, gave their room a transformation all on their own.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan in an exclusive interview, Rose said that when they first moved to their home, they were just sleeping on a mattress with two pillows. Eventually, after being able to renovate a small room for their visitors, they agreed to show their bedroom a little love, too. Here's what it looked like before:
The first concept they thought of was "modern eclectic" but it didn't turn out as planned, so they pivoted to a "modern tropical" look instead. Fun fact: Rose credited Mr. & Mrs. B of Moss Design for inspiring them to try wall mouldings. While they were waiting for the headboard, the couple painted the entire room white and all the other ideas sort of just flowed from there.
They waited a month for the headboard to arrive and once it was there, the entire renovation took two days to complete. Rose shared that they did all [the] wall mouldings and [the] side table [by themselves]; for the table, her husband welded it using the extra marine plywood that they had.
Here's a breakdown of their expenses for the room makeover:
- Headboard - P3,000
- Wall moulding - P1,500 (11 pieces)
- Paint - P1,300
- Curtains - P1,020 (seven pieces)
- Table lamps - P3,800 (1,900 each)
- Tubular - P300
- Customized mirror - P1,600 (4ft x 2ft in size)
- Wall art canvas - P1,200
- Plastic pot - 100
Rose and her husband has been loving their newly renovated room, describing it as a "haven" that gives them peace and relaxation.
