EXTREME BEDROOM MAKEOVER
I’ve been planning to redecorate my bedroom for the longest time and I finally put my money where my mouth is and did it. Being the holidays, this was a perfect time to shop and shop and shop for furniture and decor pieces since most stores have sales. 99.99% of the items in the bedroom are all sourced from Nairobi, stores in Nairobi and online shops based in Nairobi. I did this on purpose to show that we do have variety here even though it’s not enough. If you haven’t yet, watch the video first, then go through this post. You’ll get to see my ratchet before bedroom.
For my walls I used Crown Paints Silk Emulsion in Pebble Grey and for my doors and wardrobes I used Crown Paints Gloss in Old Lamppost. My Fundi Pascal always comes through (0723205073) I’ve listed where I got everything, it’s original price (if it was on sale) and the contacts or location or a link.

I got the grey tufted bed, the grey tufted bench, the site tables and lamps from Odds and Ends. Odds and Ends carry very beautiful furniture that you wouldn’t find anywhere else in Nairobi. They had a 20% off sale which ends on 31st December 2017. What I got from them fit my budget and they have good quality, unique pieces. Odd and Ends is located on Mombasa Road and in Westlands. Find their location here.
