Lisa's shabby bedroom make-over.....

Well here it is.... Lisa's bedroom.  She was very particular of what she liked and didn't like. I would go into her room with something thinking she might like it and she'd come straight back out with it! It was pretty funny really.. there were to be no roses prints only some flowers in a vase and  no doilies (except for one) and no empty frames.  I think it's turned out very light and fresh, she didn't want too much clutter..... I painted absolutely everything white apart from the bed which was already white.  It still needs a few pics above her dressing table as it looks abit too empty, so I am on the look out for some pretty frames and perhaps a fluffy chenille throw for her bed to soften the look.... but if I wait for that to happen you'll never get to see........

The bedspread I already had.  I purchased it from the USA a while ago. The cushion covers were from a garage sale. We did go shopping for a quilt cover but nothing really grabbed us, so one day I am hoping to make something for her myself.  The lace curtains are from Rachael Ashwell and I just love how they give a soft and feminine feeling to the room.

This is looking into the room from the doorway. Her room is not very big, only 3m x 3.6m. the wardrobe I purchased from a garage sale for $20. As you can see we went for a white look with just pops of pink instead of having pink in everything.

The pink silk dressing gown hanging from the wardrobe was actually mine that I had for ever and the dressing table was free! A friend of ours just gave it to us.


She still need to place photos of her friends in the little 3 sided frame.. yes I painted that too!


I only had to add new handles, maybe a bit too fancy but we liked them!



Lisa's memory board. I purchased the frame a while ago at a garage sale and we decided to keep it brass to match the chandelier and also the floor lamp base as we didn't want everything white. I think it adds a little old world charm to the room.

I used silk and lace to cover it.







Mini crystal vases make lovely jewellery holders...



The drawers from another garage sale.. $15!  The lampshade also got a make-over.



This little cabinet holds her make-up up the top and shoes down the bottom. As you can see I still haven't attached some of the handles on the door as when I was using the drill, I dropped it and broke the drill bit. I haven't given Fred the good news yet!



Well that's it... everything in her room was a garage sale/market find apart from the chandelier which I purchased at an antique shop but just had to have it and her bed from a bedding place which was a bargain as we got it for 50% off. 
Ok, now onto the next project!!!!!!!!!!!

What a lovely bedroom Maryann, I really like everything you have gotten and at a great price. I'm sure your daughter is very happy with the results. I want to ask you Can you still get those lace curtains? if you can please let me know. I'm in desperate need of 2 or more panels. I bought some and need more but the store doesn't carry them anymore... in fact I can't get them anywhere here in the states. Here's hoping!!!

Thanks Maryann*
