Cozy, Updated Bedrooms

With four adult sisters, their mother and plenty of young ones staying for weekends, the family will need to make the most of their home's sleeping spaces. See how Monica and her sisters transformed their childhood bedrooms for their grown families. 

BEFORE: Master Bedroom

Monica shared this bedroom with her older sister, Jessica, growing up. Though it was on the small side for a master bedroom, Monica had big plans for this wall that separated it from the sun porch ... 

AFTER: Master Bedroom

French doors! The master bedroom now has warmth and personality with new doors that provide access to the sun porch.

AFTER: Master Bedroom

Light lavender paint and feminine linens soften the room without losing its classic and original touches. 

BEFORE: Master Bedroom

While the windows and doors were in excellent condition, the baseboards and floors needed a little TLC. 

AFTER: Master Bedroom

Small touches like the new chandelier add a lot to the room's comfy cozy feel. 

BEFORE: Master Bedroom

Even with two windows, the former bedroom felt a bit too dark and closed off for a master bedroom. 

AFTER: Master Bedroom

After knocking out a wall and adding french doors into the sun porch, the bedroom now has much more light and feels twice as big. 

BEFORE: Sun Porch

Though the neglected enclosed porch had plenty of light streaming in, there wasn't much to be sunny about. 

AFTER: Sun Porch

The finished product now has serious warmth and personality with a custom bench and shelving underneath. 

BEFORE: Sun Porch

The sisters and their mom got a big surprise when they pulled up the tattered carpet on the sun porch.

AFTER: Sun Porch

Wood floors in great condition! Rather than refinishing them, the family decided to leave them as is for a more rustic, original look. 

BEFORE: Bathroom

Retro much? There wasn't much to see in the original bathroom, aside from its dated finishings that hadn't been updated in years.

AFTER: Bathroom

Moving the vanity to the other side of the bathroom created much more space and versatility for the newly updated powder room.

BEFORE: Bathroom

Check out those tub decals! 

AFTER: Bathroom

Installing a new clawfoot tub preserves the classic charm seen consistently throughout the home. 

BEFORE: Kerry's Bedroom

Though it wasn't a gut job, Kerry's childhood bedroom needed quite the cleanup. 

AFTER: Kerry's Bedroom

Fresh paint and barn shutters repurposed as a headboard transform the bedroom into a cozy sleeping spot. 

BEFORE: Kerry's Bedroom

A bit of a diamond in the rough, the room actually had tons of space and potential for an upgrade.

AFTER: Kerry's Bedrom

Refinished floors, a reading nook and a chandelier that draws your eye upward give the room the finished and inviting look it needed.

BEFORE: Brigette's Bedroom

With much of the room's finishes in decent shape, Brigette's former bedroom didn't need much more than a fresh coat of paint. 

AFTER: Brigette's Bedroom

Monica added removable wallpaper to the reading nook in Brigette's bedroom to create an accent wall. 

BEFORE: Brigette's Bedroom

Unlike many of the bedrooms, this one didn't need its baseboards replaced or repainted. 

AFTER: Brigette's Bedroom

The new bed's custom barn door headboard. 

BEFORE: Brigette's Bedroom

This bedroom's reading nook called for some special design treatment. 

AFTER: Brigette's Bedroom

A new chandelier and furniture and lighting for the reading nook totally transform the new, inviting space.
