Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend....(I know it was a long weekend for many of us with Thanksgiving up here in Canada and Columbus day for our American neighbors).... :)
We were busy busy around here with 2 delicious turkeys dinners thanks to my in laws and my sister (thanks guys!) and also with a fun room redo for our DD.
Her room was very girly for the past few years with a pretty feminine pink theme but now that's she's in Grade 3 (8 going on 18! ;) ) she felt she was ready for a more "big girl" room. Both of my kids rooms were in need of new flooring so we pulled up the light carpet and replaced it with a beautiful textured laminate. A fun green printed duvet set (found at Homesense on clearance for $20) provided the starting point in developing her new space. A fresh coat of paint, a new desk area and some fun new accessories pull the look together. Below are some pics .....
|She was SO excited about her new BLUE room that she made a sign for guests to leave comments on..(guess that apple doesn't fall too far from the tree... ;) ) LOL!|
|Before: Pretty in Pink....|
|After- Beautiful in Blue and Green!|
|We added some fun stripes to out chandelier shades using sparkly adhesive trim....|
|I love that the Martha cubes have the slots for tags, to keep things organized...|
|Found these fun locker mirrors and attached them to the wall with sticky tack....|
Some inexpensive Walmart lamps get all dressed up with the addition of some polka dot ribbon attached as stripes...
|Another Walmart find.....when my daughter saw this faux fur rug she just had to have it! I love it too, it adds such a cozy soft touch to the space...|
We are so happy with how the room turned out....so much fun and function along with a touch of whimsy in such a small space.....
PS: My client couldn't be happier ;) lol! If you would like to leave a comment...I'll be sure to pass it along :)
