Oldest Daughter's Room's Progress

I showed you a sneak peek of this room & the before awhile back in this post. If you noticed I only showed you parts of the room because it was still a huge mess & I was working on some projects for it. Well, I'm still working on some projects for it, but it is FINALLY cleaned up ... at least for now. We may put a note on the door (when we show the house) that says "Beware: A Teenager Lives In Here"! 
This is the Before:
Lovely : /

I finally put up the artwork that are actually 4 placemats (from HomeGoods). I spray painted 2 of them chrome which is extremely difficult to use. The wall paint is Valspar Satin - Lucent Purple

I even got her to clear off the top of the chest :)   See how pretty it is?

She told me today that she doesn't like  iron "Dream" chotchkey. It's been there for months! If she persists, I will put it in the office because the tag is no longer attached to it.


I'm not thrilled with this corner. I will explain the stool later...hint: she needs it for the armoire. Several months ago I found the most quirky purple chair at HomeGoods that would look great in this corner. Did I buy it? No. Someone put it on hold while I was thinking about it. Still kicking myself. Will probably move the origami mobile that is over the bed to this corner.
Mr. Fanatic is going to make some doohickeys that will raise the bed about 3 inches since it is a little low... and I still have to make a bedskirt from an extra panel I bought when  the curtains were purchased at Target. We bought  the supplies to make something over the bed. I hope I can do this on Saturday. I would like to make a headboard, as well, but that is on the bottom of the list.

This is what we are using to make the artwork for above the bed. Since we will be moving (hopefully), I thought it could be put on some mdf painted the same color of the wall. This way we can take it with us.

And, of course, I am still working on the inside of the armoire, but it is functional.
Overall, her bedroom is functional & clean  - for the moment. Hopefully  she will keep it this way.

Thanks for stopping by,

Pam

  5. So many great elements here, but your idea to paint the placemats was brilliant. I could totally see that treatment on an entire wall. That would be really dramatic.

  21. I have a similar purple in my guest room. It was here when I bought the house, but it's turned out to be a favorite. Very serene - and it goes with so many things. I used black and white bedding- with a few gold touches for plates on the wall and lamps. Whoever buys your house will love this room!

    Good luck on the whole "teenager lives here" thingie! *wink*

  26. oh my goodness, i just love it. purple is my favorite color, and i love black and white, and this is just put together so well and looks polished and grown up, yet perfect for a girl. :)

    also, i'm curious - you said you had problems with the chrome paint, what issues did you run into? i use rustoleum's chrome spray paint and looove it.

  29. Beautiful!

    The wall colour is similar to one I used in my teen daughter's room. I am currently working on the older teen's room, almost done. I know about them not liking things you put into their rooms! I am having a hard time not completely taking over the design!

  32. I love a black and white room. It is a great teen room, clean lines, a little funky and young. Love it! Lisa~

  33. What a beautiful room. I really like the color combo. I have a purplish living room and the black accents are great. I am going to check out this color because our purple is not holding up...it darkened...and this looks a little lighter.

    Thanks for linking to Tickled Pink!

  37. Looks great! Glad to know your daughter's habits are similar to my girls' habits!

  38. It looks great and I think it's amazing your daughter is letting you into her room at all, much less to redecorate!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Pam, this is fabulous! You are so creative. 1 thing I see that you could do is hang another curtain on wall between the two windows before placing headboard-- would give the illusion that the whole wall is windows and would look very luxe!
