While Alyssa was away this week at her cousin's, I decided it was time to get her room redecorated!
We had planned it for a while, and Alyssa had even started to prime the bottom walls, but that was as far as we got when she left.
Here are some photos of her room before, mess and all:
Monday I painted the bottom half of the walls white, and started on the top half:
What a beautiful grey!!!! The photos don't do it justice! I fell in love with it, but alas, it was only the primer.
I had also started on this little goody for Alyssa's room:
It was a freebie from someone I bought a bookshelf from!
I loved all the molding on it, and knew I could paint it and give it a new home...
All primed and painted:
I also put new handles on it, since it turned out to be cheaper (and quicker!) than buying spray paint for the old handles...
And since I was painting furniture anyways, why not paint the sleigh bed to match the rest of the room?
As the paint dried, I began working on a bit of wall art I had in mind for the room.
I grabbed a large frame that I had sitting around, plus a bunch of little frames and a couple initials, and played around with them...
Alyssa can use the little frames to put her own photos in.
This is the new workstation -- a desk that fit perfectly into the space, with shelves for all Alyssa's little collectibles and a place for her bulletin board.
One day I hope to add a curtain to hide it all away...
Putting the room back together.... today!
Alyssa came home just before dinner.
It is just the top, since I was busy in the room until 10 every night -- didn't leave much time for sewing!
How many kids can say they have a piano in their bedroom???
Sure beats a TV...
And does Alyssa like it?
The photo says it all...
The room is still not quite done, as it still needs baseboards, and a bit more artwork on the walls... I am thinking maybe a swirly decal or two?
