I have had several people ask me if I have completed the girls' room. (Bless their hearts for caring.) And the answer is... YES! Finally! I do love it, and so do they. It was definitely worth the time and effort. Things went a little slowly after we got home from Brazil. I had a couple projects left to do, but they are now finished! Yay, me!
So, here it is... the finished product. Last time I mention this room, I promise!!
Beds before (Matt made these beds. Sadly, I do not miss them. Making the top bunk was near impossible.)
Beds after. Again, the headboards are a door we cut in half. The outer edges would not take paint, so I found a great ribbon and glued it around the edges. I re-did the lamp. You can see that before and after here. And the locker was an old locker Matt's dad gave us years ago and had been sitting in our garage holding tools. It is now a functional book locker. By the way, Wal-Mart has an awesome selection of spray paints that work wonders and bring life to things you might assume could NEVER come back to life!
You KNOW I gotta talk about my chandelier. Ok, seriously, I was ASKED about it. Again, the paint is from Wal-Mart. Same color as the book locker. Matt's mom gave us this one, but I have seen tons of them at flea markets just waiting to be dazzled back to life. If you wait, the shades are always going on sale at Hobby Lobby--I added a little bit of black feather boa, and the beads are some I already had hanging around the house.
This is a little area just for the girls to be able to do their homework and be creative. The hooks and wires allow them to display their works of art for everyone to see!
And there you have it. Two happy girls and a very tired Mommy, but there you have it.
