Before & After: Daniel's Stunning Bedroom

Manhattan Nest

We've posted before about the inspiring projects created by Daniel of Manhattan Nest, including his dresser-to-desk redo and blanket-upholstered headboard. In honor of his ninth month living in his apartment, he's finally posted pictures of his entire bedroom and the transformation is amazing.

Daniel's genius for thrifting has resulted in a room that's soothing and modern, while being surprisingly budget friendly. His finds include a Calder lithograph and a $60 Bertoia Diamond Chair he recently thrifted and refinished. Rather than doing the whole room at once, Daniel spent months searching for and refinishing great pieces and thinking of creative solutions to achieve the look he wanted. The gorgeous result is a reminder that patience and elbow grease can go a long way toward achieving design goals, regardless of budget.
