Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday.. Hosted By Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch. Click on the Met Monday Button above to join in on all of the Morphing for this week.
A room in dire need of a transformation.. Ashley’s Bedroom.
Her room is fairly small.. and had a 2 1/2 foot wallpaper border that ran along the bottom of the walls. It was cute and wonderful when she was 10 and loved bunnies and such .. but not cool for a teenager.
First.. I peeled the first layer of the border away..leaving only the gummy glued part on the wall. Next I sprayed the whole border down with Dif Gel wallpaper remover.. I LOVE that stuff! As you can see on the picture below “top left hand corner” the backing peeled away easy… in large sheets. Next we patched up all of the thumbtack holes and sanded down the walls .. There will never be another thumbtack brought in this house lol. Also in the picture below are a few pieces of furniture that I also redid to fit the theme of her new room.
The next set of photos show the before and after of some of the pieces we transformed.. The top row of photos are the before and the bottom row is the after.
Since money .. as always.. around here was tight.. we had to shop around for thrifty deals. I found some white wooden Finials and wooden rod brackets marked down at Lowe’s.. total for rod, brackets and finials $11.00. Those darling beaded window treatments on clearance for $10.00 “complete set” at Anna’s Linens. Her King comforter set was our greatest find for $29.00 also from Anna’s Linens. I’m not finished with her bed as of yet.. she didn’t want a headboard anymore so I’m going to give it the look of a daybed. I’ve started building a back piece out of left over picket fencing we had and when I’m finished it’ll look like a keyboard.
Ashley’s room is no longer sad and blue.. Here it is in all it’s Pink, Black & White glory.. As you can see she loves Zebra and that is what we based everything on. I was really scared of redoing all of the furniture.. the dresser.. the nightstand.. tv stand all in black.. to me when I think of black I think goth.. but with the pink I it took away that feeling.
So what do you think.. you ready to go Crazy Pink?
If you are .. I highly recommend Valspar from Lowe’s. We LOVE it!
Below are the color codes for the colors we used in Ashley’s room. This picture actually shows the true color of the pink.. the flash from the camera in the above photos made it appear lighter.
Thank You for stopping by for my addition to Met Monday.. Make sure you head back over to Susan’s and see what everyone else has been up to.
Since this was also a post about Thrifty deals I’m linking to Rhoda’s Thrifty Treasures @ Southern Hospitality too. Make sure you drop by and check out the deals these ladies find.. Her partiers are the best in the world at finding deals.
As always.. A Special Thanks to both Susan and Rhoda for hosting these fun parties.
