We have been on holiday this week and the plan was for decorating my daughters bedroom. I have been planning it in my mind since the summer and the time had come to get going.
We started on Monday morning emptying her room and filling and sanding which took most of the day.
Tuesday we started painting, the room was white with one lavender wall we were keeping all the white but making one wall pink.
I have tried and had mixed many pots of pink paint, some were too pale some too dark I eventually found one by dulux called. Fuchsia. Falls 3 which was a nice match for the Cath Kidston Rose duck fabric I had bought to make roman blinds.
Wednesday was spent just doing a bit of paint touching up and then I painted the skirting boards and door frames in B & Q white eggshell.
Once I had done that I made two roman blinds and hung them. just before bed we gave the carpet a freshen up with Vanish shake on carpet cleaner.
Thursday we went to ikea and bought a Stuva wardrobe I love this range it has so many combinations! I chose a slimline wardrobe with soft close doors, 3 built in draws and a basket pull out for the inside of the wardrobe.
We also picked up a few other bits and pieces, once we got home I spent all night building the wardrobe.
Friday I put the doors on the wardrobe and then I set about doing all the finishing touches. We brought her furniture back in to the room.
I put up a magnetic board above her desk and a little ‘Love’ plaque I hung a net above her bed which I draped with some felt butterfly battery lights she already had from Next.
I got a Lloyd Loom type box from free cycle over the weekend, which I painted in white eggshell and covered the top in Cath Kidston rose duck fabric.
I hung three paper honeycomb ball decorations I bought from eBay, put the little rabbit I made recently on the cubed ikea unit, recovered the dressing table stool in Cath Kidston rose duck.
I bought a piece of foam last week and made a cover for it from Clarke and Clarke fabric and placed it on the top of a small white unit she already had,I also added matching cuffs on the three baskets underneath.
I bought a hammock from eBay and hung this and she filled it with soft toys so they are a nice and neat now this hammock is about a metre wide and came with the hooks. I made some crochet bunting to hang off the front too.
I also bought a beautiful white flower lamp from B & Q which we have put on her desk, all in all it’s been a very busy tiring week but the room looks amazing. You can click on the thumbnails if you want to see a bigger photo.
