After two full days of painting, rearranging, and accessorizing, the bedroom is done! The new paint color really transformed the room, making it feel fresh and bright. I also shifted the bed over, and moved the existing chest from the foot of the bed to the side. Now it has dual purpose as both storage and a night table. This also cleared up floor space at the foot of the bed. Then, I moved the large floor mirror to the other side of the room to help define a dressing area near the closet and bombay dresser. With this layout, the room is more spacious and inviting.
In order to marry the old and the new, I mixed in vintage items with beach accents, like this antique bowl filled with shells and starfish. The white ceramic bird adds a touch of whimsy.
Along with a few other accents, the yellow throw pillow brings a cheery feel to the room.
I couldn’t pass up this rope ball door stop. So cute!
In the end this diy room renovation took two days and just $300. As you can see, you don’t have to break the bank to update your bedroom!
It’s been a rough morning over here, we woke up and headed straight to the vet for our poor little Cola. Sydney is really sad her best friend isn’t feeling well, so we stocked up on some craft supplies and will be spending our afternoon at her art desk to keep her mind off things. While we do that I wanted to share with you the living room makeover I did at my mom’s house. I went to visit for a week, and couldn’t resist doing a little renovation project. For just about $900, she has a brand new room! Continue reading →
I’m so glad it’s Wednesday, that means we’re halfway to Friday! But… that also means there is still so much that needs to be done before the weekend is here! Looks like we have a busy day ahead of us. I have a couple design projects that need to be finished up, and Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so Sydney and I better get working! While we do that, I wanted to share a recent table transformation with you.
One night last month my husband took the dogs out for their evening stroll, and came back with these old wood nesting tables. They’re solid wood, in good structural shape, and have nice bamboo style legs. They just needed a facelift. Continue reading →
Sydney and I spent almost all of yesterday updating her dollhouse. I guess I’m getting her started in the design business early! She was really excited to help pick things out for her dollhouse, and to start seeing it to come together in front of her. There is still a lot to do to the little house, but we’ll get there!
