Addison's bedroom makeover


So I decided to change Addi's room last month. I hate when I get super motivated and excited to do something and then loose the desire half way through which is what happend here, hence the month long project that should have been a weekend deal. Anyhow, it is now done, mostly, and I love how it turned out. I wish I would have remembered to take a before photo to show you but I forgot. It was a light green color with white trim and her bedding was pink and green on a white daybed that use to be mine when I was little.

Here is the wall I chose to try a little "Pottery Barn" look alike technique on. It was really easy and very affordable. I just went to Home Depot and bought these wood slats that were 1/4 in. thick so they fit right up to our existing baseboards. They were already 4 ft. x 3 in. so I didn't need to cut anything. I just used liquid nails and glued them to the wall and then used a paintable caulk on all the seems after. This was the hardest part and really it wasn't that hard. Then when done, paint walls and trim same color.






Here is the finished wall!









This is a cute vintage dresser that was found at a garage sale by my friend Carrie for $40. It was a light yellow color and I just sanded it down and sprayed it black. It is my favorite piece in the room.

I sprayed the daybed black and made the bedding and curtains from $2 fabric store fabric. I love how it turned out. So girly and shabby chic. Now I am trying to find a good deal on a vintage chandelier. So fun!!! So easy!!! I love a good weekend/month long decorating project:)
