I have been changing some things in my daughter's room (she loves when I move furniture around, but the thing is that her room is so tiny that I do not have many options though!) Her room is white, pink and gold and I have been wanting to incorporate some mint colors as well. She loves it. One of the walls has gray and white stripes and I am planning on replacing those with gold vinyl polka dots.
FYI: that pink rug from Homegoods was a Goodwill find of only $7. I actually WASHED it in my washer machine (yes, you read it right) and dried it outside, then I fluffed it with a comb. My daughter LOVES it because it is so comfy for reading!
I am not the biggest fan of pink but my daughter sure is, and I let her have her room her way, after all this is her place. Some time ago I found a cute little table at the Goodwill for $9 that looked like this:
It had marker writings on the top and looked pretty beaten up, so I cleaned it, sanded it a little bit and painted it all white.
It looked like this for the longest time but I thought it was too blah...plus this also happened:
Artistic hands took a hold of it!
While in Michaels, I came across this:
chalk paint + color I was looking for + only 8 bucks + 40% coupon= HEAVEN!
This meant NO PREP for painting!!! YAY! I started painting, and I had in my mind how I wanted it to be: mint, white and gold!
(my daughter loves this birdie)
Much better! Now it is not so boring!
After the paint was dry I waxed it with Annie Sloan clear wax and painted the edges of the drawer with gold metallic acrylic paint and a small brush. I also spray painted the hardware with Rusteoleum Gold Metallic Spray paint...(BTW, this paint is the BOMB!)
All three stages:
Stay tuned for her bedroom transformation. If you know us, you know it will be cottage-y, girly with tons of thrifty finds and homemade accents...
