You guys! I just booked my first 2015 wedding! I’m so excited to start working again, but until I have engagement pictures to post, I will continue to fill my blog with pictures from my house because I pretty much never leave unless it’s for a dr appt……cabin fever anyone?
My youngest girls are 9 and 12 and they really wanted a new room and I couldn’t blame them since the room they share used to be their older sisters room from when she was two.
And since I took the year off from work to care for Eli and because medical bills are not cheap, I had to get real creative. I don’t have a great before pic of the whole room, but I love this picture from when my oldest two used to play pretend with the boys next door everyday and you can see the awesome Martha Stewart circa 2000 inspired walls – which I painted one by one when I was 9 months pregnant :)
And here is the room after:
Most of the furniture was already in their room including the beds – one was mine from when I was little and the other was a $10 estate sale score. We painted them green to match years ago. I almost painted them white, but I was lazy and I still really like the green. Plus the green lamp was already in there and I didn’t want to paint it, I think it’s perfect the way it is. The only things I added were pieces from other parts of the house that I repurposed.
The coral cabinet used to be black and was hidden in a closet. I originally bought it at goodwill for $15
The desk built for two is from Ikea and it used to be my office desk
The pink chairs are from Ikea
The gallery wall was created using the girls artwork and I love the one Daphne made right after Rox was born of the three of them. I framed all the art with super cheap Ikea frames – $4 each. And the Funny Girl poster was bought on ebay. The frame it’s in was repurposed and spray painted gold
The rug is from RugsUSA and I got it 70% off
The gold lamps on the nightstand were already in the room, I just gave them a new life with a can of gold spray paint
The cute dog was a gift (and free!)
The sputnick chandelier was something I bought a few years ago for my family room but it never made it out of the box. It was also silver before and I love the way the gold looks!
The mirror and wall clock were cheap finds at Home Goods
The duvet covers are originally from Urban Outfitters but I didn’t want to pay full price so I looked on ebay and we couldn’t find two of the same. So I bought two different twin duvets and a friend took them apart and made two reversible duvets so they match – does that make sense? I think I’m confused now…anyway, it was cheap :)
The curtains are from Target and the curtain rods are the super cheap ones from Ikea
The throw pillows are from Ross and the shams are pillow cases from Target on clearance
Thanks for still reading my blog haha!
