I was so excited to do Lorelei’s room. I had it all planned out in my head before we ever found the house. I bought fabric to make her bedding, I began collecting cool frames to hang on her wall, but when it came time to execute my dream, well, it just didn’t turn out at all how I hoped.
My plan was to paint the toddler bed frame black to match the room, but I feel so over this room, that I just kept putting it off. Lorelei is just about ready for a twin bed, which is the perfect excuse to start redecorating!
The chandelier is awesome! It will be staying in the transition, but with new shades and I’ll be painting the ceiling medallion a different color.
I do like the way this turned turned out. I found the wood for the big black frame on an old couch sitting in the dumpster of our old apartment. Jeff was happy to rip it off for me. A miter saw and a can of spray paint and voila! The pink frames are all goodwill finds that I spray painted pink. I think I’ll keep some of these elements for the new room.
This will be staying as well. Although, I want to paint the frame a different color and change out the ribbon. I got the idea for a bow holder from pinterest. I just hot glued some ribbon to an old frame I found at goodwill. It’s the perfect spot for all those bows that would otherwise be scattered around the house.
I can’t stand this dresser. I’m sure it would be great painted another color, but I’ve come to hate it. It was a great goodwill find at only $17. I painted it black and spray painted the pulls hot pink. I think its the harshness of the black and hot pink. I’ve seen these colors done really well together, but this was an epic fail. On top of that, I’m over the color combo and would really like Lorelei to have a space that’s light and bright. Jeff is not happy about having to paint over the black, but hopefully this time it will turn out right! 🙂 I actually gave him a free pass this time around. I told him he could take the kids and go have a fun day while I do all the painting.
My plan for her updated room will be hot pink, aqua, tangerine and lime green. I see bold patterns, bright colors and stripes in her future! I’ll keep you posted on the progress…
