Y’all I’ve been wanting to update the Master bedroom since last Spring. I also wanted to do something easy and affordable. I hope you like the results.
Here are my 5 Easy Bedroom Ideas that make the master bedroom feel fresh for Spring without breaking the bank. I’ll share how you can easily update your bedroom with these simple tips. You will see a 3 Step Furniture Makeover and a Lamp Hack included in this Spring Bedroom Makeover.
Easy Bedroom Ideas Begin with New Spring Linens
First, the main focus of a bedroom is always the linens and is an easy update.
Our master bedroom linens had not been updated since we built the farmhouse so that was first on my list of priorities. I had originally planned to make a new duvet cover and had actually chosen fabrics. However, I quickly realized that there were so many great options that are reasonably priced. This saved me a lot of time and energy.
Y’all know I love vintage linens and this gorgeous bedding from Piper Classics has the vintage feel that I love. The neutral color of the Olivia quilt, with the ruffle trim, works with so many accent colors and will allow me to change the room colors easily.
I also chose the Doylestown Euro Pillow Shams to add a touch of blue to the bedding. The faded blue florals once again have a vintage linen feel.
Accent Colors for Bedroom Ideas
Next, when working with neutral colors, you can decide on any accent color that you choose. Once you have a color pallet in mind, begin to look for accent pieces to pull it together. This will allow the eye to travel around the room to find the pops of color.
I gathered my vintage and thrift store blue pitchers, vases and old books because of the blue pillow shams. The shelf above the headboard is actually an old mantel with the legs removed and we flipped it upside down.
In addition, I added a row of vintage blue plates and platters just above the headboard.
Are you following along on Wednesday’s Thrifting with the Gals on Instagram? Well, last week I was on a mission to find blue decorative plates to hang along side my antique Flow Blue Platter. I’ve had the platter for over 30 years and couldn’t wait to display it again.

Spring Bedroom Transformations
Another way to save money and update your bedroom is to find thrifted side tables and transform them into your dream decor.
Earlier this year, I found this great chest at a flea market and quickly transformed it to use beside the bed. See the easy 3 step process here. In addition, I transformed a $7.00 thrift store lamp into an Earthenware Anthropology hack. You can see the simple transformation steps here.
With the success of the above chest, I was inspired to update another bedside chest.. You can see all the before and afters – just click here to see the transformation.
Make the Bedroom Cozy
I love to keep the bedroom cozy with a soft rug and throw blankets. If the light weight quilt isn’t enough cover, the throw blankets are close at hand.
Other Bedroom Ideas
The blue shutter adds another pop of blue and a perfect backdrop for the thrifted needlepoint birds. The wreath and birds add another pop of spring color.
Adding greenery and dried or fresh flowers is another way to make the bedroom feel fresh for sping.
Mirrors, art, greenery, and light colored accessories all help to lighten the room. This allows all areas of the bedroom to feel fresh for Spring.
The bedroom furniture is a mix of woods and whites, which is my favorite decorating style. The walls are Balboa Mist by Benjamin Moore and are a perfect neutral color that allows for any color combination within the room.
When you use a basically neutral color pallet, you can quickly and inexpensively update your spaces seasonally.
