Dreamy Little Room Makeover

So I feel like I am almost finished with little miss K's room.  There are still some loose ends to tie up but it's so close I'm just going to show you.  Because honestly those loose ends could take months to tie up according to my procrastination clock =)

This will just be another post of an ungodly amount of photo's with my little narrations beneath.


This is the before.  When I first started I had a vision and of course as time passed I went way off course!

My four year old ended up deciding she no longer wanted to sleep in a room of her own.  She wanted to move back in with her sister.  So we moved the daybed to the basement and lucky for me we had this full size bed unfinished in the garage. 

I know, ugly right?  I also got this darling little dresser for free!  I was going to need another dresser for two girls sharing a room.


Too bad those knobs were beat to sh.... crap.  But I loved the serpentine style top this beauty had.  So day by day, I started putting the new room together and I just have to say I'm really glad the girls ended up in the same room because I don't think I would have had it in me to do this twice!

The overview...

Chandelier...


I picked these darling little chairs up at a garage sale and my girlfriend got the pillow and foot stool.  We are selling these at the market this spring =)


I got this bird cage for an ungodly amount of money at the market.  I normally don't pay $35 for anything!  But it was so worth it don't you think?  I made the pink tissue paper pom pom and these both sit on the unfinished floating shelf I started but haven't finished lol.


Just a little subliminal marketing for my girls ;P


These I found over at MySweetSavannah when she re-did her daughters room.  She has links on where you can print them.


I have no idea why this one makes the wall look pink.  Neat trick though huh? lol


I got this little silver dish at goodwill and added some chalk paint to the middle.


One of my favorite Etsy purchases.


The reading corner complete with book sling, memo board and shopping signs.


Hobby Lobby... love me some tin art!

That is the closet you see and the unfinished vanity.  I'm thinking a powder pink.  I am also going to eventually paint the walls 3/4 high with grey paint and the top 1/4 pink.

View of the bedroom door from the back of the room.


My new silhouette has been treating me good making some stencils. I just loved the little Eiffel tower.


The girls vanity, yet to be refinished.  It's white and chippy which is fine for now.  Hopefully there is no lead in it!


Our vintage doll carriage houses most of the Care Bear collection, the pillow pet takes up too much real estate.


Here's the darling serpentine dresser. The drawers were drying =)


And a little touch of stenciling just took it over the top.  I'm waiting on more knobs =)


Thanks for stopping by.

That chandy is so cute, I love the pink with the black. Maybe you could hot glue some crystal bead trim around the shades!!

Sommer said...

@ Amy.. Thanks. I had planned to add some bling to the chandy sooner or later ;P And go figure, I've already re-arranged the entire room! I wasn't happy with the furniture configuration. I guess I posted this a little premautrely haha.
