We recently had the opportunity to do a farmhouse bedroom remodel at The Quinn Inn. With a small budget, and in need of a refresh, we had to be creative.

When we first visited the Quinn Inn we fell in love with this historic Victorian home.
It was one of the first homes on Main Street, in our small town of Portage, Pennsylvania.
The owner Patrick Quinn grew up in this home, and you could see how much this space means to him.
He has done some remodeling to some of the spaces, to fit his guests needs.
Can you believe when this house was built the town had wood sidewalks?
As we walked through the Inn my mind started racing with the possibilities off beauty this home could hold.
We decided for the remodel we would start with the master bedroom.
The size of this room is amazing!
I knew with the 4 windows, we would have amazing natural light if we could just brighten up the space with some new paint.
So the first plan of attack was to paint over the green/blue paint with white.
When I am asked “What is one simple thing I can do to transform a space on a small budget?”
My reply is paint! Painting a space can bring it back to life. Painting a room can transform a space and make you fall in love with it.
We used Home Depot Behr Pro 1 i300 eggshell interior paint. This is the same paint I use in my own home. The quality and coverage has never let me down. We also used this on the radiator cover to help it blend in with the walls.
Once we had the walls and roof painted I was time to work on the window trim.
We don’t typically pain over wood unless it is necessary. The window had paint spills from the previous painted and we wanted to clean it up.
By painting the window trim black, it helped tie in some of the existing decor and gave that traditional farmhouse vibe.
Once all the hard work was done it was time for the fun part. As we started planning this room in our heads we quickly realized black accents would be a huge part of this space.
I wanted to try and repurpose as much of the current furniture as possible. These end tables just needed a little love and some chalk paint and we were able to reuse them in the new space.
This jewelry armoire was also a piece we weren’t ready to let go of. We used black paint to give it a good makeover.
You can see here how amazing the end tables and the armoire look with a fresh coat of paint.
This floor mirror was also begging to be painted, how could I resist?
This closet was screaming for a makeover, you can see it definitely needed an update. Int was nothing a little white paint couldn’t fix.
We painted the knobs black and that was an amazing decision.
Next we added in some vintage touches. We found this thrifted mirror for under $20 and painted it back to match the space. Adding in a pop of green and some vintage decor to complete the space.
We finished the space by adding a curtain rod and these gorgeous curtains from Curtain Cottage for privacy when needed.
This mantle from Antique Farmhouse was so easy to put together and great quality. Look for a blog on how we created the vintage DIY mantle insert look coming on the blog in a few days.
When I saw this antique bed I knew we needed it for the room. I was originally going to look for a couch, but everything changed.
It was perfect and I instantly envisioned the space, and it made sense to add an additional sleep space to such a large room that could double as a sitting space.
My dear friend April from @simplyinspireddesignco created this amazing custom sign for the Inn. She is so amazing to work with and the amount of detail and love she puts into each piece leaves me in awe.
