Well! we have finally done it! after much thought and deliberation! and a few arguments along the way, I got the paint and it was all systems go last week!
Fred and I wanted The ‘Happy Shabby’ look and Rosie wanted a modern look as she loves the black and white Zebra prints that are about at the moment….
…and seeing as it was her bedroom and far be it for me to influence her own style (I am all for individualism!) we let her guide us with what she wanted.
…and together we came up with this! we have got rid of the cast iron bed, as it was too short for her now! (she has had a bit if a growing spurt!)…we were able to purchase a divan (cheaply) from a friend and thats really what started it all off!
A trip to IKEA, Matalan, The Range and a few Garage Sales and this is Rosie’s new Bedroom! Her dressing table had a broken leg and for ages I looked for a new one for her…but the price of these lovely ornate ones has rocketed over the years, I thought I was going to have to pay a couple of hundred pounds for one!….
But then I thought! hold on a minute!…her one is soooo lovely, I’ll get it fixed and paint it pink! so thats what I done and the same goes for her chest of drawers…they are a bit cumbersome, but with a coat of ‘sexy pink’ gloss from Dulux, they look mighty fine now!
To be honest it was lovely looking for these colours…
it made a change from my usual primary colours that I usually buy….it looks totally girly…a lovely bedroom indeed…even if I do say so myself! 😉 and Rosie loves it…she even wanted the HOME cushion I made in her room as she loves the turquoise with the pinks….thats my girl! 🙂
The different wallpapers in the frames are from B&Q…we cheated here a bit and rather than buy a whole roll of each, we just tore off samples! Eek! Well rather large samples actually…sorry B&Q…but hey I am giving you a mention…so no sulking! LOL!
The black spotty oilcloth is from ‘The Range’ only £2.99 a metre! and the material in the front of the wardrobes are Rosie’s scarves, that match the room.
I hope you like it as much as we do
Bye for now gals,
