bedroom make-over

This year we promised that our oldest would get her own room and it would be made over just for her.

So far-
new bedspread
Big Daddy's family's antique spindle bed
(queen size)

another antique passed down in the family

$10 garage sale find -step one turquoise paint
(it was white...bad blogger for no true "before" pics)

as it is today-
Berh's light french gray dry brushed over it
then heavy sanded to show blue and white layers
will be glazed and hardware added

Our little girl's 13th birthday in October is our deadline to get this done. I'll keep you updated as I finish up projects.

left to do-
finish dresser
closet organizers
base boards
door trim
window trim
window coverings

wish list for this room-
change closet door to byfold doors
replace windows
beadboard ceiling
board and batten
built-in bookshelf in place of current HUGE dresser
Pin It
