Girls Room Makeover With Striped Walls
blah, blah, blah...we all know you are here for the pictures, so here they are...
And of course a good reveal is nothing with out reference of where it all started...
Obviously, the biggest change was the removal of the wall to wall closet and replacing it with the 2 smaller cabinet style closets.
I needed help framing out the closets, that is where my dad came in handy. He was a godsend, creating the spacing and getting the doors up.
My original plan got scrapped along the way, which I am OK with. Sometimes taking an alternate course allows you to come with something you would never have dreamed of in the first place. In a way this room is like that. While some of my vision is still there, a lot of the final choices were new causing the whole room to take on a different final look.
I knew I wanted to keep the walls pale, but my daughter wanted a bright room (she is 6 after all and it is her room). It was a struggle to keep her focused and to trust me when I showed her the colors for the wall.
To bring in the pops of color, we decided to find a bright fabric for the window coverings. We went with...
I added the pennants to bring the bright colors to the other side of the room and to give some visiual interest to the wall.
She even got a little vanity/work station in her room.
I am usually good about telling you how it all costs, but I must confess, I have no clue on this one. Of course it cost me more than I wanted, but I did choose budget friendly options. Over the next week or so I want to break down areas of the room and talk more of what I did.
Until then I want to make sure you got a proper look....
