My daughter's room makeover...

My daughter's birthday was at the end of January and I promised her a room makeover. Now this was a little strategic on my part because I told her it was a total surprise (i.e. no input from her whatsoever, so no hot pink walls!). Here is her room before...

Not much at all that I liked about it BEFORE. I started with painting the walls,  then using Old White & French Linen CHALK PAINT® I painted her headboard and finished it with a grey stain. I used Aubusson Blue CHALK PAINT®  with dark wax on a new(antique) dresser. My husband built a bench for the end of the bed and I finished it with the same grey stain. I used accents of mustard yellow (Arles CHALK PAINT®) on the mirror and with a throw and a small rug.
A little Provence CHALK PAINT® underneath the headboard.

I purchased the chalkboard USA map off of etsy. The throw pillow is an el-cheapo from Ikea.

Mirror painted with Arles CHALK PAINT® and finished with dark wax.

Final reveal! Oh yeah, I almost forgot- my daughter really like it!

  1. Love it! Just enough color, and very sophisticated. When we let our daughters choose wall colors we had a room that was half and half charcoal gray and hot pink, and another that was electric lilac. Oy. :)
