I am so glad to finally be done with the first bedroom. This is the room for daughter #2. She selected the color on the wall- Into the Gloaming by Sherwin Williams at Lowes. It is an HGTV color. It is a beautiful, calm color. The trim is December Starlight by Valspar. It is warm white that still reads white and not beige.She had a vision for her room and we did our best to accommodate on a budget.
We ran into a little extra work in the closet. (You can read about it here.)
.There are two windows in the room. Only one of them is a privacy issue which we addressed with a simple roller shade from Home Depot. She wanted shutters for the window, not for functional purposes but totally aesthetic. I found them at a vintage fair and cleaned them up. (You can read about it here.) I found out later that Mister had suggested this idea to her.
The bookcase was there from before. The size of the bedroom meant there was no room for a dresser so we used the bookcase. I purchased six Circo storage boxes from Target. We used them for clothing that needed drawers like socks, ect. on the two bottom shelves. Her closet is the largest in the house so she hung everything she possible could and used the shelf for sweaters.
The chandelier was from another room in our house that got a makeover last year so it didn't cost us a dime! Yay! The carpet was in good condition as this room used to be our office and just didn't take a lot of abuse. The color would not be first choice for this pretty little room but it will do. She had the bed spread for her queen bed. Here it goes to the floor on her new twin bed so there was no need for a bed skirt. I did buy new sheets in grey.
The radiator cannot be moved. A marble shelf that Mister had picked up from the garbage a year ago finally found a purpose. And, the tissue puff in the window was from a friends party-it was going to be thrown out but we hate to see pretty things tossed. I works fine in place of a valance here.
When everything was said and done we spent less than $250 not including the price of a twin mattress and box spring. That makes Mister very happy. I got to reuse items we had in the house and I got to rework used pieces in the new space. That makes me happy. My girl's ideas were made a reality and it resulted in a beautiful bedroom and she is happy.
Okay, I'll take a few more minutes to enjoy this room then off to the next one....
Thanks for spending time with me!
