Boo comes home from camp on Thursday. YAY!!! She had been talking about wanting her room updated, so while she's been at camp, I decided to take on the challenge to surprise her. The last time we updated her room, we covered a large wall mural that I painted when it was her nursery....(SEE OLD POST ROOM REDO HERE... Pretty funny! We put the Joel Dewberry Brown on the walls, (her choice) and it has looked great for quite a while. She had said she wanted me to take it down and paint over it.. But myself and my husband, can't get ourselves to do that. LOL! So for starters, She loves BLUE. It's been her favorite color for quite a while now... so we picked out paint to cover the other two walls that are not mural covered...
So long blue/green/orange walls, Hello Navy blue! I love how it looks with the white trim. and a yellow ceiling and closet!
Here's the Murals... see what I mean? I had so much fun painting it when she was tiny... I've ordered new Riley Blake Zig Zag to hand over the two walls... ( I just can't paint it out!!)
Boo had decided she didn't like her old IKEA bed a while ago, and asked us to take it out, so her mattress had been on the floor, which she was quite happy about... Made me a bit crazy, but that's my problem...LOL! She likes to feel like she's in a nest, so when I found an upholstered day bed, I knew it was perfect for her. She wanted a room like a nice hotel room. ;-) her words, not mine... So, I scoured the internet and found a great navy/cream rug on sale that would set the whole design of the room. I also found a new duvet in pale flying geese patterns, kind of fun and modern looking... She already had a nice Fake fur blanket I had made her a few years ago, so that helped make it look fancy!
I'm praying the FABRIC gets here by Tuesday, so I can get it up on her walls before I have to go to NYC to get her Thursday! I also ordered her a small mirrored desk to sit next to her bed. Won't that be fun? An extra little touch to make her room more grown up and "hotel like!"... Now to get her pictures hung, and drapes hung... waiting for the drapes and a YELLOW lamp for next to her bed, to come too, so stay tuned for part 2 of the room redo!
I ran to TJ Max yesterday, to see if they had anything fun in the home section, and I found these AWESOME metal baskets, one for LAUNDRY, and three nesting ones... Since she doesn't really have a dresser in this room, these will work well for all things that don't hang... They were on sale and very cheap, but are very sturdy baskets, so I feel like that was giant score. That, and the great light blue sheets for $19.99 by some fancy designer...
So, tick tock, I have a few days left to get the room in shape, and go through all the STUFF I took out of her room... sigh. It's all sitting here in my living room... I'd rather be sewing then sifting through what to throw out. haha!
So, will she like it? Or will I be in the dog house? Fingers crossed!
Hoping tuesday will have everything I need for the room finish.
