I have a guest bedroom now! I got to make over my son’s bedroom since he moved into his own apartment. He is a sophomore now and lives close so I still get to see him. The room was a bit of a disaster, I deep cleaned and shampooed the carpet and touched up the paint and spackled, and well you get the idea!
I’ve always loved the morning sun this room gets…
This little desk was mine as a child…built by my grandfather in 1965. I think all five of us girls got one like this and the boys got a more business like desk. The original stool is long gone but I found this little vanity stool at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $1. I recovered it with some chevron fabric and it was ready to use. I am still looking for the perfect lamp here.
I moved a little bookcase into the corner of the room and added some bright colors in a beachy/ocean theme.
The ombre basket that I painted goes well here!
So does the dictionary page saying in a thrifted frame…
The walls in this room are grey, I didn’t care for it at first, but it goes great with the blue, yellow, cream and red that I used. I bought very little for this room makeover, much of it I had accumulated over time.
I did make the headboard for the bed. And the quilt on the bottom of the bed.
And these two quilts which I tucked into a thrift store painted basket.
I love this coat rack; I made it from hardware store faucets and actually cost very little.
The little red glass lamp came out of my closet and the embroidery hoops were collected and I used scraps to put in them. I made the dust ruffle from a thrifted fitted mattress pad and some muslin that was 70% off at JoAnns.
Mom got me the beach sign for my birthday and you can see how I made the wreath here.
You can see the little pine chest here…it is called a “shoe chest” in my family. Again, my grandfather made it in 1965 and I think all of us had one at one time. The square pouf I got at Target for $11 (Wal-Mart had them for $20 even)! It was on clearance and recovering it is on my to do list.
I might be linking to these great parties! Thanks for stopping by!
