girl's and boy's bedroom update...

This was a fun project I finished for a client a couple months ago, I finally had the the
chance to get some photos last week. The kiddos were all involved in choosing colors,
 bedding, and other elements they liked for each of their rooms. We used several pieces
 of furniture and accessories they had, and gave them a fresh look with paint. 

Teen girl's room...


These nightstands were a light wood stain, we painted with Rustoleum's Gloss Protective
 Enamel in Yellow. The opposite side of the bed has matching nightstand, lamp and print. 


From day one this stylish girl requested the netting, I loved her idea!


This formal four poster bed, originally in a dark stain, was in a different room, they were
planning to get rid of it, but since it was perfect for attaching the netting, we gave it a fresh
updated look using Rustoleum's Gloss Protective Enamel in White.    


Reading corner and diy lamp shade.


A bulletin board, and Ikea cubes are great for corralling collections.

Young Girl's Room...

 
This lively room, has a matching twin and sunburst mirror on the opposite side
 of the room. The spunky little one loved purple so we kept the existing purple paint
on the lower half of the room and gave it some pizazz by adding some new colors to it.
The vibrant over-sized canvas helped to tie in pink and orange.


We gave this desk and chair they had a fun transformation with paint and new
floral knobs from Hobby Lobby. 


Her bulletin boards she had fit in, and we found a shadow box to add to the mix.  

Boy's room...


We chose a black headboard, flanked by coordinating bookcases and attached Home Depot
 outdoor lights. I saw the idea a long time ago in this room by Courtney at A Thoughtful Place,
 I loved it and filed it away to use somewhere. We framed some of his baseball prints in Ikea 
frames.

 

A slip covered chair in stripes complimented the plaid bedding and red accents.
The lamp shade is a great masculine tweed, and we included two metal bulletin boards
 above the desk for interest.  


What a FUN project! I couldn't ask for nicer clients to work with,
 and they did an amazing job on all the diys I suggested!  :)

Pam these are awesome!! All three of them. Love those pops of yellow in the teen girl room - it's so stylish and funky but still really pretty and feminine. And the use of the purple and other accent colors in the younger girls room is so fun - I love the color details on the chair and that sunburst mirror. And of course I always love the girl rooms, but you always rock out on the boys rooms. This guy must be thrilled - it's awesome! The mix of patterns on the pillows is great and the bedside outdoors lamps are really fun. Great job my friend!!

Pam my long lost friend, you are a magician, I love how all your details bring a room together! The netting in the teen girl's room is so fun, I would love to sleep under that! And I love all the fun colors in the little girl's room. This spring I am planning to work on my 14 year old's room a bit, and I love those lights that are on either side of the bookcase in this boy's room. The style of them in perfectly masculine. What a great job you did - the family must be thrilled!

They look wonderful! I am especially loving the yellow nightstand with glass top in the girls room and the wall sconces in the boys room. (I'm slightly jealous, my room never looked this stylish growing up!)

cindy @ a curious gardener said...

Each room is filled with great ideas! Particularly like the painted stripes, bed netting and yellow nightstand. The outdoor sconce attached to the bookcase is genius and I love his slipcovered chair. Lucky kids to have rooms that look like no one else's and are hip and modern!

Three fantastic rooms, for three great thinking kids! Of course, the "Designer" had a little to do with the end.... Success!!!!

Looks great Pam...You did a fabulous job!

Love all 3 rooms! Great job, as usual. All the small details are symbolic of your designs. I'm so glad the kids were involved ~ I think it's so important to allow them design choices for their rooms.

All three rooms look great but I'm really digging the first bedroom. I love the wide horizontal stripes and the netting on the bed. This room shows a great use of spray paint for stunning transformations!

Amanda, we had the pillow custom made and I'm sorry but don't have the name of the fabric, it was something I'd had for awhile.
