Bathroom Facelift

Gave the bathroom a little facelift.  Had to do the floor and ended up painting and getting new decor.  I stepped out of my comfort zone with the color but I LIKE IT! I am usually a girl who puts a neutral on the wall and then brings color out with accessories.  Not this time!

 Blue! I really love it now that I stepped out of my comfort zone.  The blue is hard to photograph but it is the bright blue color in some of the pics.

 After I put all the accessories and shower curtain it really pulled it all together. 

Love how it turned out.  I purchased all my accessories from Hobby Lobby.  Fun update! Hope you enjoy it.

Trash to Treasure

Hey, just finished a fun project for my daughter.  My mother-in-law has a rental house and this lovely was left behind by the last renter.
It was an armoire. The doors were broken, the back was broken and it was in real bad shape.  We decided to make it a t.v. stand. So we cut off the top, took out the top drawer that was broken, and made a shelf there.  Then replaced the very top of the armoire to the top of the t.v. stand and Wa, La!
Painted it red with sample paint from Home Depot then added a brown glaze on top after a good sanding.
But of course, to finish it off, I ran to the Hob Lob (Hobby Lobby) for these darling knobs.
All finished it cost me $20.  Daughter is so happy with her new t.v. stand.  Love those trash to treasure stories,don't you?

Teen girl bedroom

Loved doing this teen girl bedroom.  She already had a great room with lots of character.  Two dormers, one on each end of the room and awesome windows.  They had already painted the room with this pretty blue color when I entered the picture.
I found, second hand, a desk for homework, and a dressing table for make-up and jewelry.  I had them painted coral and put them in either end of the room in the dormers.  Here is the homework side...


And here is the make-up side...

The curtains I made custom with the coral fabric on top and bottom.  I used rings so she could slide them easily for privacy.

I found the matching chairs second hand also and had them painted Ivory.

The magnet board was painted with the grey and white chevron pattern.
The jewelry organizer I found at Hobby Lobby and it was the perfect
color.

I made the headboard solid grey with white buttons and white rope trim.

The lamps I got at TJ Maxx and put the ribbon on the shades for some more color.  The bedding was purchased online. One pillow was made from the same fabric as the curtains to tie it in.
The armoire was purchased second hand and painted ivory to match the chairs.


 The wall beside the armoire is her "brag wall".  She is very athletic and has many trophies and metals to prove it.  I wanted a unique way to display her trophies so I painted two crates white and added jute around the handles.  I hung them on the wall so they made shelves.  It turned out great and I used a hat rack painted coral for her metals.
We took off the doors to her closets because they were damaged and decided to use fabric instead for some more color.  We used the same fabric as in the curtains and pillow on the bed.

Such a fun project and she was very happy.  That is all that counts! Hope you enjoyed this fun bedroom, stop by again.

Made these darling ornaments with my daughter. She needed an inexpensive ornament for her tree so we went out to the firewood pile. We cut slices of a log that was about 3". We used a sharpie for most of it but pulled out the paint for the nose and highlights. All that is left is a ribbon for hanging on the tree. So fun and inexpensive.

Aaaahhh Christmas, the very best time of year! Love the lights, music, traditions, and decorations.  Here are some of my favorites.  Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.
