Before we moved into this house in June, her bedroom looked like this:
It was being used as a playroom for the previous owner’s two little boys.
My daughter painted this room herself the week before we moved in. I wish I could tell you the color, but I did not keep the swatch. Three of the walls are white. All of the wood furniture pieces were handmade is Sugar Creek, OH (Amish Country). The turquoise cube at the end of the bed is from Target. She went back a few months after buying this one to get another one, and they did not have them anymore.
This bedspread was the inspiration for her bedroom. It was purchased at Urban Outfitters. It is even prettier in person. The turquoise throw is from Homegoods, and so are the two throw pillows. Miss 16 year old made all of the design decisions in this room. The gold lamp was bought at Goodwill and had new price tags from Target. The lampshade needs to be bigger.
The pencil sketch portrait over her bed is a drawing of her that a male friend at her school drew, and just gave to her. Isn’t it gorgeous? I had it matted and framed for her as a Christmas gift. I tried to go with some very neutral because I wanted her to be able to hang it in her home, wherever she is, for years to come. It really is the spitting image of her!
The white window panels are from Target, the string lights were purchased at Goodwill, but still had brand new tags from Target.
This makeup vanity was purchased a few years ago from Target. It came with the stool, which her grandma recently reupholstered. I have to say that this piece of furniture was very cheaply made. The knobs broke when it was practically brand new, and I have lost count as to how many times on of the legs on this stool have broken and have had to be fixed. She has plans to paint these a bright pop of color. The Rubbermaid drawers to the left hold makeup and hair products.
Update: See the finished Vanity makeover here.
This mannequin was a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. This was what she asked for. The guitar was her Christmas gift last year. She actually took guitar as a class first semester of school this year.
The white shelves you see in the room are inexpensive shelves from Lowes.
Here is a list of what still needs to be done in this room:
- Paint Vanity
- Paint ceiling fan
- Upgrade wall shelving
- Stencil song lyrics on the wall
- Personalize more with décor
- Paint some of the picture frames to match the décor
As I mentioned above, she will most likely switch rooms with her brother when she goes to college, so I don’t have any big plans to change much before then, because at that point we will have two rooms to paint and change when the switch takes place.
Update Jan. 2015: See this room the way it looks now here.
Have a Great week all! Thanks for checking out my daughter's bedroom today! I am linking up here:
