I can’t stop decorating. I enjoy making our house unique to our family and each individual underneath this roof we call home.
Now I am given the opportunity to decorate our oldest daughters room from scratch. She turns 10 in May, and since the flood that happened a couple summers back, she has been bunking upstairs, since the flood affected the entire basement. Her room is the last to be finished. What is it they say, ‘The cobblers children have no shoes?’. While my hubby is out building everyone else their homes or repairing damages from insurance claims, our home patiently waits 🙂 (hey I’m not complaining- those jobs pay!).
So, here is a few pictures of the “before” and where it stands right now…
As you can plainly see- it is gutted. The board, mud, tape is all ready to go. Trim is in storage, and a new (much larger) window is waiting to be cut into the cinderblocks. Also in the first left hand picture is a sump pump, which unfortunately has to stay. My plan with the sump is to build a custom corner shelf/bookcase into the wall completely covering it, with a removable bottom for easy access, similar to this one below-
As for Furniture, between the items we already own and the other pieces I would like to order, this is a representation of what it will look like-
The main center picture is her bed/futon (which we have in storage).
A. Gray rug flooring
B. Laptop stand- Ikea (to be used for drawing etc. for our budding artist 🙂 )
C. Black Oval Mirror- Ikea (also in storage)
D. White 5 drawer dresser- Ikea
E. Knobs- HomeSense (for the desk and dresser)
F. Reclaimed wood chair (a project on the go- thanks to a free chair from the in-laws farm!)
G. Desk (similar to the one we have in storage, this one is from Ikea to give a visual)
Main and right side pictures from Tonic Living, the fabric is fabulous! I will be sewing the pillows and curtains soon.
Sheepskin rug- Ikea.
Horse Art Canvas Great Big Canvas. (Although I have not ordered it yet, I am in the works with a photographer to see if we can fit a shoot in of our daughter riding her horse, and either frame it or do a wrapped canvas).
That my friends is a summary of what I am hoping will all come together nicely, for our daughters 10th Birthday 🙂
Have a wonderful day,
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
