Here is her room before. Warning, there are some very bright colors! And bad pictures!
Looking in from the hallway
I loved this idea! Her name was on the foot of the other bed.
The previous room was pink & brown. We painted white over the pink at the top. She was
didn't pick the pink & brown to start with tired of the pink & brown & wanted to add her favorite color, turquoise. She was 9, I think that is every girl's favorite color at that age. She had to have the peace quilt from Pottery Barn teen & being the mom I am, I wanted her to be happy so I paid too much for quilts that we had less than 2 years.
So back to the French bed that started it all. Once she said she wanted it I thought about how great it would look in her room, more grown up & we could go ahead & make her room a "teen room", that she would have for years. Her favorite color was now green, bright green. We decided to put the green with gray & black. Great colors & not too trendy. The 1st thing we did was paint the walls white. And the ceiling, did I mention we had painted the ceiling pink, too? Yep, 12 foot tall ceilings with angles. Not my best idea!
We picked out some houndstooth fabric for a duvet cover & some green fabric for long panels. This would add a big splash of color to the walls without having to paint.
So where does the CeCe Caldwell come in, you ask? I repainted the overly bright turquoise secretary & night stand in Pittsburgh Gray.
I also painted the Ballard's shelf in Pittsburgh.
We left the dresser alone even though it was painted with latex & too creamy, she liked it & I was tired of painting over furniture I had just painted.
The bed was painted Simply white with Spring Hill Green accents.
I also updated this bulletin board with Spring Hill green
The last painted piece was this end table.
This picture was painted by my daughter & was painted with CeCe Caldwell paints.
Just a few more pictures so you can see the whole room
I actually drug this chair up a flight of stairs (17 stairs!) just to take these pictures. We have a chair in her room that I was going to recover & didn't get it finished in time!
What do you think? I loved this room but....
we are redoing it again!!!!
I will be selling the bed, night stand, secretary & end table.
We have already started & I have now switched the curtains to white panels from Ikea. So next
year time we redo her room I won't have to buy curtains! ;)
