Oh my, it has been quite a while! I have been a busy bee recently updating our second floor. (among a miriad of other things!!) It seems that while most people get spring fever and do major overhauls in the spring, I like to make changes in the fall. Coinciding with school starting perhaps?? heehee
After 5 years of sharing a room, J decided he wanted his own room. We are fortunate to have 5 bedrooms, but John and I each had one of the rooms as office space, and the other room was being used as a small guest room (often referred to as my niece's room). Let the switch a roo begin! John moved his office into the guest room, I moved my studio/craft room to his old office and my studio became J's room. Here are the before and afters of J's new "big kid" room. Pictures of the other spaces coming....
|this was my studio, but we had already moved my stuff into another room.|
|another view before. I painted this desk glossy black. Will be seen later!|
|I really loved having pink and green walls, but J wanted nothing to do with them!|
|here is the after! Our inspiration for the room came from the curtain fabric. Not sure if you remember my valances in my studio, but I re-purposed them to be the green and white pillows.|
|I have 2 skateboards to mount as shelves above the desk. They are just not up yet.|
|The bedroom set was my dad's! Love that! Oh, and we have a mirror to add above the dresser.|
|And AFTER!! I am SO loving glossy black right now!!|
|FINALLY hung the prints... Curtain fabric is from Jo-Ann Fabrics|
|love how the colors totally match :)|
|and added the skateboard shelves too.|
|I got these 2 skateboards at Target for $10 each! Just mounted them with "L" brackets|
|just a close up of the pillows on the bed.|
I am also going to re do 2 more of the chairs. One for my desk, and one for my vanity. I may use the 4th for my SMALL desk in my kitchen, but it is REALLY small. Not sure the chair will fit well...
I am planning to post some more before and after's once I have them finished!
