HOT HOT PINK!


This is one of the newest make-over rooms. We went from Shabby Chic pale colors to a nice contrasting black and white. See my notes below on how much this make-over cost. It was an experiment in seeing how much I could buy at one store (Target) to do the entire room!

 
I LOVE these lamp shades. The design looks gray here, but it is acutally black. I had bought these previously at Target for about $20 each. The great trim is from Hobby Lobby

Vintage dresser and mirror I already had in the room. Vintage hats that belonged to my Aunt

These items were all bought at Target. The bed in a bag was a steal at $60 on sale! The wall decal/clock by Umbra was $24. The wall flowers also by umbra were $20. The large grommet curtains came in a 2 pack set for $20. The black polka dot sheers were $20 each (I bought one can cut down the middle) The pink pillow was $20. The silk pink curtains (not shown in photo) were $20 each. I bought 2.
Below you can see my step-by-step on putting up the wall clock and flowers. 
The total was between $250-300 for all items.

Carli's room





This is the room of 14 year old Carli. She is really into Japanese Anime. We wanted to add some of that to the room, but keep it mature for her. We did the canvases, so that she could change them out if she wanted to. The bedding is from Dwell Studio for Target. The cool cut-out chandelier is from Urban Outfitters.


This was the "before". All of the furniture was smooshed to one side of the room. We made her bed the focal point by moving it under the windows. Layering it with curtains and artwork created more drama. She wanted to keep the color very subtle on the walls, but add a little sparkle with tiny mirrors and silver paint.
