For the past several months, I have been planning to re-do my daughter's bedroom as a surprise for her 16th birthday. I missed getting it done in time for that, but finished up a week later, just in time for her to see it on Valentine's Day! I have recently redone my step-daughters room as well, in a similar color scheme of aqua (though her accent colors are lime green, white and black)…so I've had aqua on the brain! I do think it might be my new favorite color!
Here's the rest of the pics with some descriptions:
|The whole bed zone, including the 2 nightstands.|
|The side view of the room. I found the curtains on clearance at Walmart the week I did the room, and they were the PERFECT champagne gold color…that was a lucky find for sure!|
|Close up of the pillows…the darker one was just about the only thing I bought at regular retail for the room. The lighter one I bought thrifting and added a vintage aqua brooch to it. The others I made…no sew!|
|I got this FREE printable from HERE. It's one of my favorites quotes, but I didn't even find it until the day before when I was looking for something else on line. I couldn't believe it…it totally matched the room in color and in theme! I painted the frame I already had to match and hung it right over her headboard.|
|The lamp base was previously just a stone color. I used a glossy spray paint, and then dry-brushed over a pearly champagne colored paint to highlight the shape and the details.|
|The other bedside table with some of her trinkets and a vintage plate I had to hold her earrings or bobby pins at night.|
|This trellis was just hanging around….It never went outside because it didn't have feet. It ended up being the perfect memorabilia holder for her room with simple clips from IKEA attached to it. She can change it up anytime!|
|A dresser that I found the week before the room reveal online….for a really great price. And the handles were even champagne finished! MEANT TO BE!|
|Her baby shoes in a shadow box along with some reminders that she is a Daughter of God.|
|Cute little flower decoration that I already had…I just dry brushed on some aqua paint to give it a verdigris look.|
|I painted the mirror frame and picture frames to match the room by dry-brushing them.|
So there you have it! My budget Princess room for my Beautiful 16 year old daughter! I love how it turned out and I'm looking forward to finishing up some other projects with the chalk paint technique!
