Anywhoo....when we got everything out of her room, it was easy to see the walls were in dire need of paint. Here is what A's room looked like before:
All her furniture came from Ikea....and it is a room full! I loved the apple green wall color, but she was ready for something a little less child-like. I never liked the placement of the bed, as I feel strongly that the bed should be a focal point when you enter a room. And her room was very chopped up with the large pieces of furniture.
We decided to go ahead and paint the room while all the furniture was out. And since I am on a HUGE grey kick right now, I immediately knew what the new wall color would be! This is Vintage Grey by Valspar. I was seriously contemplating using this in my master bath reno, but went with a lighter shade.
So here is what we ended up with after the paint and moving the furniture around. I don't like that the bed is in front of the window, but it reeeally opens up the room!
These letters used to be pink and they hung above her bed. We spray painted them silver and moved them above her closet doors.
This...is...PUFFY! Puffy came to live with us before A was even born! He sat in the corner of her crib and somehow she found him. We have lost Puffy at the mall, at restaurants and even yard sales. I can't remember all the times we had to back track to find him! After 17 years, Puffy is looking pretty raggedy, but he will always be wherever A sleeps!
I bought these white on white zebra curtains at Target a while back. Now I need two more panels....any suggestions about where to find them???
These are photos of A's bathroom. It is connected to her room and picks up with the purple accent colors and black.
So there you have a room fit for a teen! A loves her space and I love her grey room!
I am linking up to these great parties:
