Bedroom Makeover Revealed!

Phew. The room is DONE! Sure I was up until 3.30 this morning painting, and spent all day decorating it, but it was SO worth it when Sofia came home from school and saw her new room!

To remind you, here was the inspiration from Hideaway Girl...
Here was our before...
And finally, the AFTER...







Isn't it different?! As in, barely recognizable! Tell me, is it OK to be jealous of your 11 year old, because I really, REALLY want her room!

This was also a very cheap makeover. I added everything I bought up and the grand total was $72.50! $32 for the paint, $25 for the dry sink from the Sally Army, $7.50 for the thrifted quilt hoops and fabric, $5 for the vintage sheets I turned into curtains, and $3 for two thrifted cushions. Take that, Trading Spaces!

I struck gold yesterday at the Salvation Army. I was looking for a nightstand that I could paint white to go next to her bed, when I saw this old dry sink cupboard.
It was already painted and distressed to a perfect shabby chic style, and best of all, it had these beautiful crystal door pulls...
For $25 I couldn't pass it up.

Here is Sofia when she came home and saw her room...





She has NOT stopped talking about it all night. She keeps saying over and over that she can't believe it's so beautiful. Every time I walk by it I stop dead in my tracks and stare - it's one of those times when everything just comes together and beauty is made and even though you did it,you're not quite sure how, but there it is. It is definitely a room befitting our newly 11 year old girl, and a birthday present she will remember for a long time!
