Before & After: Your Favorite Room
Come and link up!
When you love your house it is hard to pick a favorite room. I mean, I love being in my studio creating. I love my master bathroom because it is calming to me as I relax and take a bubble bath at night. I love my bedroom because it is a place and love and intimacy. But if I had to pick my favorite decorated room it would have to be Kayla’s room.
This was the first time I had ever truly remodeled every square inch of a room from the top down.
The room started with walls that needed to be painted. All the walls were a pale lavender color except one wall that was a bright purple. No I did not choose this color combo. The pictures below are the only pictures I have that you can see the before color of the room.
I painted the entire room in Gobi Desert by Behr in an eggshell finish. Then I worked my butt off painting horizontal stripes and Kayla’s name on the wall. I literally was aiming for perfection and touched it up with a brush that had like one hair on it to get it just right.
decided to paint the ceilings and then add crown molding…
reupholstered a glider in a pink and brown damask…
and grabbed a yard sale gold gilded mirror and transformed that.
I made over a Craigslist $10 chandie…
a small light for the end table… and spray painted a new end table…
I also restored a vintage rocker that my husband’s mom used to rock in when she was a little girl.
And here she is today… I can’t believe that was two years ago when I began transforming this room. Whoa..how time flies. We will soon be transitioning into a big girl room. The decor is so classic that I will just need to make a few tweaks and I will get to enjoy the decor for many more years.
