Transform a Room with Paint

Posted on

When we first moved to this house nine years ago, I gave my daughter the smallest bedroom because it has a private attached bathroom.  She’s a girl.  We need our privacy.  But a couple of years ago, she moved into the biggest bedroom so she could have more room to play.  The bathroom attached to that room is a “Jack and Jill” bathroom shared with her brother.  Now that she’s a “tween” it has come to her attention that sharing a bathroom with a boy is gross.  (Yes it is, dear, welcome to the world.)  So she moved back.

Of course we needed to repaint.  She has changed her mind after all.  (I wish I knew where wanting to change things all the time comes from???  It’s exhausting. 😉 )

She picked the color purple.  This room has a chair rail, so that gave me the opportunity to NOT paint the WHOLE room purple.  We chose a creamy white for the bottom half.  I have to say the purple scared me a bit, but now that it’s finished, I love it.

The power of paint is amazing.  It’s happy, and easy and inexpensive!  And you can Do-It-Youself. 😀

This room was my “sewing/craft room after my daughter left for the bigger room. I did a wall paper scrap collage on one wall. I liked it at the time, but after she moved back, it had to go!

Wall paper down! Even if you prep your wall, wall paper is never a joy to remove. Looks better already!

Isn’t it a happy purple? The room looks more like a “tween” girls room now. And just a note of proudness… my daughter spackled all the holes in the room herself before I painted. She did an excellent job! Perfect the first time. My heart is full of pride!

The only thing I purchased besides paint for this room redo is the comforter. I couldn’t resist the cheeriness and grooviness of it!

This desk is a Habitat Restore makeover. I picked it up awhile ago for 30.00. The chair is also from Habitat. Nothing was done to it besides a little glue on the legs and a new cushion.
