girls bedroom makeover

After 3 days of painting and primping, the girls' room is done.  I painted it a light gray called 'isle shetland gray' from Walmart and touched up the dingy white trim with 'swiss coffee.'

I added this new headboard, purchased for $15 from the thrift store, and painted a light pink.
After seeing this little end table outside a neighbor's house getting rained and snowed on, I called and asked if they were doing anything with it. They said they weren't and that I could have it. I painted it cream and added these lovely pink anthro knobs that were in the clearance bin.

The gray walls really lighten the room up.  Although it has a pretty window with window seat, this room does not get direct light and felt dark with the darker paint--now it's light and bright. 


Here's a sneak peak of their new dresser I recently finished.  I will show the full dresser and details later.
On the bed, I threw on a thrifted sheet with little pink flowers, a white sheet and pillow cases found in my linen closet, and the top cover is from Simply Shabby Chic.
I also added the silhouette pillow (of my 2 girls)
I made ages ago.


A little paint and primping go a long way.
What have you primped lately?

  4. The girls room is so charming and sweet, you did a wonderful job, Michele. I have wanted that Shabby Chic comforter, but with 2 dogs that love to snuggle with me...no!! I love the little cabinet, those knobs are precious! I bought knobs for a chest from Anthro, they have a nice selection.

    I plan to do a lot of primping on vacation, a lot of paint jobs! I'm looking forward to it!
