Well, hello Dolly! A tween room redo

Monday, January 19, 2015

I finally have pics to share with you of the recently finished fun bedroom that was completed for a sweet 10 year old. It's a great old farmhouse with beadboard walls and ceilings and dark wood floors. When we started, it was aaaaallllllllllllll pink.

BEFORE


 I didn't realize it, but even the walls were a soft pink {I thought it was simply all of the pink reflecting on white walls!} Everything was moved out and the walls got coated in white.



When discussing with Miss Client what her dream room would look like, her reply was 'everything aqua chevron and no pink'..... hhhmmmm.....I know that we have all seen a whole lot of chevron over the last few years, but she was very persistent in what she wanted. Her dream was to have them painted on all the walls, but with old beadboard walls, that was not an option that would turn out well. So, we comprised and created a large headboard that was mounted to the wall and painted with oversized chevrons.    

AFTER


The fun bedding is the Novogravtz line at Wal-Mart {!} I love all of the bold patterns and colors and they are super affordable.  



I added a painted chartreuse yellow band to the lampshade. And the little canvas is covered in a piece of scrapbook paper and vinyl stick on letters. super easy. 



The vanity was found in another bedroom. I painted it aqua. I made the chalkboard out of a piece of masonite and added some trim that was painted orange. Little LED wired lights were wrapped around the edge. 







I made the string art from a piece of scrap wood that I stained.






She is BIG into nail art, so a little lucite polish holder was attached to the side of the vanity.



She is also a huge owl lover. I love these little owl knobs that look hand carved that I found on etsy. 






The gold chair is also from the 9 by Novogratz collection and is a steal for only $149!!. I made the pillow by painting the black stripes on white fabric, fusing the aqua fabric and adding the words with a paint pen.  



I made some pom-pons out of purple yarn and added them to the corners.



The ball garland was made using 2 different sized styrofoam balls. I bought lots of complimentary colors of embroidery floss and wrapped each ball until it was completely covered. Using a ginormous needle, I threaded them onto twine.  









I made tissue paper tassels and clipped them onto a strand of lighted clips along with favorite photos. This looks so pretty lit up at night! 



The curtains were made from Premier Prints jojo fabric. I kept them super casual by attaching them to a wooden rod using rings and clips. 



And my favorite part of the room -- the painting of Ms. Parton!! Miss Client loooooves Dolly, so I painted a large canvas using the same aqua, orange and chartreuse paints used in other parts of the room. 












We reused 2 of the original pink bookshelves and painted them orange. They were then hung behind the door. This provides plenty of great storage. 



The striped rug is an 8x11 indoor/outdoor Capel rug. I bought the pleated white bedskirt and added a little aqua band to the bottom.  The chest, at the end of the bed, was the homeowners. It was given a coat of orange paint and offers more storage.  



A happy, fun, Dolly inspired room that suits Miss Client perfectly!!
