I’m sure many of you know by now that I am not the Jean of the old Backyard Bungalow. And she’s amazing, so I really want to pay tribute to some of her posts.
There was an old post on a vintage room makeover with Jean from a while ago, but I’m not sure I can get her same pictures to show you.
While it might not be the same as hers, I promise it will have my own unique spin and it will be fun.
Here are the necessary part for a vintage bedroom makeover.
Vintage chandeliers can really make a room. They are very pretty and interesting to look at. I do have a tutorial on how to makeover a chandelier to be more vintage, so go check that out!
Or you can get beautiful lighting from your local vintage store or a flea market.

There are a few ways to antique a dresser, or restore vintage dressers. I followed Jean’s idea and used Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint and really liked it! Check out my post on restoring vintage dressers.
Every bedroom needs a vanity in my opinion. They are convenient drawers, well-placed mirrors, and another seat in the bedroom.

This is a beautiful chair for the vanity. The chair is important because it accents the room. Go check out my vintage chair tutorial and learn how to paint upholstery fabric.

These are very popular and for good reason. They fit in any vintage room, they’re unique, and super cute.

However, you get or use vintage bottles depends on the room you’re decorating. And I think flowers are the nicest touch to a vintage theme. So combining the two has been a favorite for me.

Décor—Vintage Wood Pallet Wall Hanging
I loved this idea I found. I repurposed a wood pallet by refurbishing/painting and then sanding the pallet down. I removed some of the middle wood planks to create a space like the picture, and then hung plant holders from the other planks. I filled some with greens and some with flowers.
I think it’s just so cute.
