At Christmas time, we rearranged all of the kids bedrooms. In the summer we finally put in a window in the basement so that it could be an official bedroom and so we moved Q down there and swapped Calli and Mack's room. It seemed like a great idea at the time. I forgot that all of their rooms would have to be repainted. I love redecorating, but the budget is a little tight right now and so it wasn't a great time because of that! I usually love to try to use what I already have to be frugal and so this was just a little more challenging because I didn't have a lot of wiggle room. She told me she wanted her room to be purple and green. I love that combo, however, she has had a purple room from birth and I was ready for a change. Here's our makeover all for under $120.oo out of my pocket! (Calli helped a little.)When I saw this rug ($30) at Walmart she and I both agreed to do the room around this palette. We were off and running!!!
We found her bedspread in Heaven (aka Target-(I saw this on someones blog this week))-Who doesn't love Target????). I bought the bed in a bag ($25) and Calli bought the accent pillow sham with her own money!After the green bedspread, I didn't want to put the bright green on her walls and so I chose the periwinkle-but Calli really wanted the green so we compromised and I told her we could do the periwinkle on the bottom and the more light green on the top. I was nervous about it, but it turned out cute!! A couple of cans of paint ($30) and WALLA!!
The rest of the accents were all redone ones that she had in her old room. I found some paint that I had from some other projects and used it to repaint frames, her clock, and hangers on the wall. I love the turquoise and wished I had used more of that color-but it is a great accent! I also found these floating eyelet balls ($12) in the wedding section at Walmart too. They were something new to add a fun extra touch.
Calli and I both fell in love with this fuzzy chair ($28) that fit perfectly in her reading corner! She also paid for half of this with her own money! Wow! Thanks for the financial help Calli.My favorite thing in the room though ended up being this long picture frame that we had and bought some scrap book paper for ($4) and developed a few pictures of her liking to make this cute scrap book on wall!Along with Calli's room, I had Jeff add some rounded corners to the hall entryways and I textured and painted both hallways. This is what my poor kitchen table looked like the whole week. I didn't dare take a picture of the rest of my house. I guess that I will be playing catch-up with my cleaning this week. Now Mack is expecting his room to be done immediately! I think we will wait for the tax return for that one!
