re·design Room Makeover featuring Sherri Martin

Hey re·designers! Ready for another amazing room makeover? Today’s guest is Sherri Martin and she transformed her bedroom into a cozy sanctuary filled with rustic and vintage charm. Her ideas are amazing but first let’s get to know Sherri…

My name is Sherri and I’m a #dogmom. This is Stanley my golden doodle when he was a pup. I have 3 married children who have given me 5 of the sweetest grands on earth who call me “ma’am!” ( They.melt.me .) I’m the co-owner of a shop called Front Room on 7th, which is in Southwest Ohio! I’m a creative (it’s in my DNA) and love to re-purpose vintage treasures. I’m also a furniture artist. Whimsy is what makes my heart race, but if painting something gray is what “sparks joy” for someone, I can respect that, but I’m wanting to add harlequin patterns while I work on it. ;) My bedroom had been on the “to do list” forever, but moms sometime take a backseat, and that’s okay.  Winning the Redesign with Prima Facebook contest gave me the chance and motivation to turn my drab bedroom into a whimsical haven where I’ll look forward to reading and resting at the end of each day! So, it’s not a man cave... but it makes me smile! I did a Facebook live “unboxing” when the package came, it wasn’t hard to tell I was excited!

My first project was an old wardrobe! I used Wise Owl Paint’s new One Hour Enamel in the color “Bone” and applied the transfer with French writing that interprets to “There is only one true happiness, to love and be loved.” (LOVE that phrase!)

The transfer was very easy to apply! It’s so beautiful! I sealed it with Wise Owl Matte Varnish.

My next project was a small black table my grandfather had built. I added round extensions (and wrapped them in rope from The Dollar Tree) to give it some height.

I knew I wanted this piece super whimsical. I painted it with various shades of green from Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paints, then blended, added checks, and applied the Fern Wood transfer. I love the new look!

Next, the bedspread!

I recently purchased vintage doilies from an Estate Sale, from a friend who had passed at age 93. She was a creative right up to the end of her beautiful life.I sewed doilies and attached them to a frame from an old lampshade. Then I attached random doilies into a rescued quilt a friend had given me. The wing on the wall was inspired by T racey Bellion  of Tracey’s Fancy. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I like finding beautiful forgotten things, that have been overlooked and re purposing them! I think that’s the same thing God does with people.
