We’ve finished the first room in our Little Lake House! It was a ton of work, but I’m so excited to share this modern coastal bedroom makeover with you today. I hope you’ll be inspired to create your own soothing oasis on a budget!
In case you’re new here, we purchased a run-down lakefront home last Fall. You can read more about it here and how we had to demolish it right down to the studs.
We’re making over each room one-by-one with the help of some sponsors and friends collaborating with us, and this bedroom was the first makeover on our list:
This is the main bedroom in the home, and it measures about 10′ by 14′. It’s a decent size for this smaller, 1000 square foot home. I thought it would be nice to incorporate a King sized bed into this room and create a calming, coastal retreat in colours of blue and white.
Like everywhere else in this house, my husband Sean and I had to remove everything in this room right down to the studs. We had a spray foam company insulate the home so that it would keep it pest-free and energy efficient.
After that, we made over this room from the top to the bottom! Wagner sent me a paint sprayer and sponsored the YouTube video for this makeover, and that helped me renovate this room on a tight timeline.

I’m so pleased with how this bedroom turned out, and I really think it sets the stage for the rest of the rooms in this little home.
My favourite part is the deep teal shiplap wall, and I love that I was able to mix inexpensive furniture with thrifted pieces and things I had on hand to create an eclectic look.
- Shiplap & trim from Metrie (gifted)
- Luxury Vinyl Plank in The Natural from Divine Flooring (gifted)
- Ceiling fan & wall sconces from The Home Depot Canada
- Paint is Observatory, Ultra Pure White & Silky White by BEHR
- Bed frame & nightstands from IKEA
- Area rug from The Brick (gifted a couple of years ago, now out of stock)
- Hanging chair, duck ornaments & books are vintage
- Sheets, throw pillow and curtains are from HomeSense Canada
