I mentioned back in January that I wanted to wrap up all the little projects around the house and finally get the rest of my house tour completed. Lily's room was no exception as it was 95% completed months ago...I just needed to put on the finishing touches and take some pictures.
art desk makeover. Lily's a first grader who loves to draw, color, and create. She's actually painted a few furniture pieces too! She's also a girl who loves bright colors (what little girl doesn't at this age?) and true to her name, she loves to garden and plant flowers...
(and Summer's) were a bit of a challenge to figure out furniture placement since one entire wall is made up of doors for the closet and the entrances to the jack-and-jill bathroom and hallway. Luckily, her toys and dollhouse all fit nicely in the closet!
One of the last few projects to get completed was getting the right chandelier installed. I had actually found a cute flowered chandelier for her room at a vintage sale back in Spokane...again, before we picked up and moved. After attempting to install it in Lily's room and quickly figuring out that it needed to be re-wired, I lost patience with it and stuck it in my booth for a low price (and a note saying that it needed work)...
I'm glad to say that it went to a good home! In the meantime, I'd found another chandelier for $50 (that worked), but was spray-painted hunter green. Out came the bright-pink spray paint again...
I also used a little Pure White Chalk Paint to set the flowers off a bit. The room was pretty much done, but Lily had one more request...
Tissue poms! Yes, they've been done a million times, but Lily wanted them and I love the look of them in here. Her room is so cheerful...I don't mind hanging out in there with her at all! I also like the fact that all the furniture was only $290 (plus paint) and with all the accessories and bedding, it still was approx. $500 top-to-bottom (sources below). That's a kid's room budget I can handle!
