Yesterday I shared my nephew's bedroom and today I'm excited to share his sister's bedroom that I also worked on the same weekend last summer. So. much. painting!
My niece is twelve, and she really wanted a fun bedroom. She is definitely not a pink-loving princess type, so I sat down with her and she picked her bedding set which I used as a jumping off point for the rest of the room. Her favorite color is purple, so of course I had to find a way to incorporate that as well! She also loves to draw, so I wanted to surprise her with a desk and a system to display her artwork.
Here's her (messy!) room before:
I faced some of the same changes in her bedroom as I did in her older brother's room: her walls, trim, and ceiling all needed to be painted, and her plaster walls required a lot of patching. In addition, she had more existing furniture, so I needed to paint those peices as well.
To be honest, I don't know if I've ever painted as much as I did that one 3-day weekend... by the time I drove back to Idaho, my hand was in a perma-paintbrush claw.
Here's her bedroom, after:
Wall color: Behr Pale Daffodil
Bed paint color: Rustoleum Heirloom White
Desk color: Behr Coastal Beige
Baskets from Target
Duvet set from Target
Black fur butterfly chair from JCPenney
Lamp from TJ Maxx (its sister is in my guest room! Love!)
Purple sheer curtains from Amazon.com
Cafe rods and clips from Walmart
White closet curtain "door" and pillows were handmade.
