When I "discovered" that headboard for Lily it set into motion a whole chain of events that I certainly didn't see coming. At first she didn't even want a headboard (probably due to it coming off of a trash pile, hehe) then she loved it so much that she wanted to change things around in her room.
I finished painting it yesterday, her room I mean! Damn headboard LOL.
It's the same colour but she wanted to move some shelves and then we discussed painting the shelves to add a little wow and by the time all the shelves were moved, in addition to the letters and stuff we moved for the headboard, there was so much patching to be done and touch up work and I knew the paint wouldn't match after 4 years so I just re-did the whole room. It was looking a litle shabby anyway so now it is all fresh again.
It looks a little more teenagery and a little less tween. Gulp.
|Her brighter shelves. All shelves used to be the same colour as the lower wall. The noticeboard is also a re-do. It belonged to my clients daughter and was yellow and blue and said Tiffany on it.|
|Sock monkey collection|
|I just re-did that socket. Oh yes I did, the junction box had come out of the wall.. I just re did it myself yesterday.|
|Her medal rack that she made|
|The mirrors are pink and orange and the shelf is pink.|
|Lily is becoming quite handy. I handed her the plaster and said, get to it. She loves helping with DIY. Once it was dry she sanded it down. After the first few times she even mastered cleaning up!|
