Gold and crystal hardware were always on the top of the list for our daughter’s room makeover.
I recently gave our daughter’s bedroom a makeover (see progress posts on paint, drapery and upholstery). For the record, I DID NOT design her room the first time, like you see in the before photos. We bought the house with the room as-is, furniture and all. Our boys were 5 weeks old at the time, she was three and she loved it so we asked to buy the furniture with the house and called it a day.
The overall goal for her room:
- Make it suitable for a happy, energetic 9 year old who has a lot of flair.
- Re-purpose all of the existing furniture to save costs.
For her furniture, I chose to just paint it and change out the hardware to gold and crystal hardware. Hardware instantly changes a look! You can take a piece from traditional to modern, or make a statement on a simple piece by just changing the knob or pull.
I recently had a comment from a follower that she only knows of one store that has a lot of hardware. Well, let me introduce you to Bellacor. My favorite online shop to find hardware! You guys! The selection is incredible and they have all looks.
Here’s some before and after’s!
This is the whole room before. The knobs on the window seat were almost invisible. There some inexpensive circle crystal knobs on there that didn’t make an impact at all. In the photo below you’ll see the original knobs and how the bold gold and geometrical shape brought that window seat to life!
Our daughter is so happy with how everything came out! I couldn’t love it more, either!

*Bellacor sent me this hardware in exchange for my un-biased review. I can’t recommend this company enough – the section is amazing, the quality is perfect and the proof is in the images in how they totally changed her room!
