PICS FINALLY!!!

Yes, I finally have some photos of my daughter's redone room. Stupid me forgot to take a before pic but luckily I have one from over a year ago taken when we had company and the kids were in her bedroom so it will give u a pretty good idea of the drastic changes made. Now its a far more mature yet still a funky room for a teen. Let me know what u think.

before...

That gives u some idea..I know I should have taken some before starting lol. It's hard to see but behind the bunk bed the wall is a salmon coloured floral wall paper. It was there when I bought this house.....hense Cleo's desire to change her room these last few years lol....... Keep in mind that I had to eliminate most of her furniture to make room for a piano. We were very fortunate that my father bought her one this summer because she showed a big interest in wanting to learn. I just don't have the house for it so it had to fit in her room or not at all. We totally reorganized her closet with shelves and baskets and with just enough space to hang a few things along with something to hold her belts and ties and the few caps she has...it all fits and has a home along with the DIRTY clothes hamper...so she has no excuse leave anything on the floor...(again famous last words!!!)

AFTER...



The only thing left to put in there is a desk type thing we ordered to put her tv and vcr/dvd player in. It is the only corner of the room I didn't take pics of. Other then that u get a basic idea. I used closet organizers from sears to do the wall treatment on eachside of her bed. Not as pricey as ordering real furniture..I think it kinda makes the bed look like a built in. Also all the shelves and little drawers gives her lots of space to put niknaks and books. I also love the 2 floating shelves above her bed also..they are very sturdy btw, no danger of falling..they are from ikea. I think her room turned out really cool if I do say so myself.

This room looks great! I wish I had done something similar to my son's room when he was a teen; it looks great, and I hope she enjoys it. That colour is fantastic - and I love whatever those little fabric shelves are hanging from the ceiling with the stuffed toys in them. Cluny

Just dropped by via Blogazoo, love the room! Those closet organizers as bedside furniture are genius! I'll have to remember that as my girlies get older.
