That room is pretty small, and really a good size for one person. We had picked up a paint mistint a few weeks ago (when I painted my island!) and we picked up a new duvet cover at JYSK for pretty cheap.
Thursday we got right to work! Took the twins' bunkbeds down, moved Deanna and Natalie's bunkbeds into the twins' room with Natalie's new captains bed.
Removed everything from Deanna's walls, spackled, sanded, washed walls. Then two coats of paint. Some laundry in between waiting for paint to dry...
I had found a double bed on Kijiji for Tim, so we went and picked that up, moved his single bed up to Deanna's new room, and put the double in Tim's room. That was about enough work for one day...
Today was finishing touches - we bought her a new mattress, put up window blinds and her mirror, and got a shelving unit for her books etc. We are still looking for a wrought-iron type headboard, or a nice white wooden bed/headboard. Wheels on hardwood is a little annoying.. never know where you'll end up in the morning!
Here's the finished product:
|Before. A long time ago, but you get the idea..|
|After!! So much more grown-up. I just love the paint colour|
|New shelving unit, she can keep her treasures and do her hair!|
|We need to re-paint the desk, and we also plan to spray paint the chair. Maybe silver?|
|She is very, very happy with the end result!|
