I painted the walls Cosmic Pink by Valspar (eggshell finish) and the ceiling is Tempered Grey also by Valspar. The walls took one coat of primer and THREE coats of paint, I even used their new paint formula....the one with the primer included in it. The final product looks great, it was just a major pain to have to go over the walls sooooo many times. I eventually plan on putting up crown moulding (in an Ultra White finish) so then the contrast will be more apparent between the walls and ceiling. The bed use to look like this:
I just lightly sanded it, primed, then painted it black. I got the headboard/footboard free from my aunt. She was using it as her son's headboard (totally not a boys room piece of furniture) so I suggested we trade my daughter's plain metal frame for this set and it was a deal! Score!
The bedding is a quilt that I bought from Target (I think it was $30) and the sequins pillow is from Kohl's that I got with coupons (paid $2). I thought the bedding was fun and age appropriate....Hailee is 8. The curtains I sewed myself, I bought the fabric from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon and I payed about $35 (buy your fabric all in one piece so you are charged once and able to use your coupon). Each panel is 7 feet and I have enough fabric left to recover a desk chair or something of the sort (yet to find that). I bought the nightstand probably 6-7 years ago at a garage sale for $5 and it has been sitting in my grandma's garage ever since. When I bought it it was white... and peeling... and gross, but I loved the lines of it. I spray painted it with Krylon's spray paint in pistachio and then Modge Podged some wrapping paper to the top (the knobs are from Hobby Lobby).
I always knew that I would be in LOVE with that table someday. I still need to get stuff up on the walls, paint the dresser, and find a desk. My daughter is truly tickled pink to have a room that reflects her style. Before we bought our house we lived in a two bedroom apartment....and there are five of us!! So just for my Hailee girl, here is a full midway update picture:
Do you have any hot pink walls in your house? I do, and wouldn't change it for anything in the world. What about a piece of furniture that you bought because you love, but just haven't found the right spot for it yet?... Or even a kid with rollers in her hair that melts your heart every time you look at her?
