My youngest daughter is a girly- girly, she loves pink, clothes, flowers, music, drawing, dolls, and did I mention pink. With that in mind, I knew that shabby chic would be the way to go for her bedroom makeover.
I found this cute desk at an estate sale. I knew right away that I wanted to paint it white using chalk paint, then distressed it some, seal it with wax and stained the top a dark color. We also replaced the drawer pulls to go along with the shabby chic look I was after.
For my first time painting furniture, I’m happy with the way it turned out.
I thought she could use this desk also as a vanity so I needed to find a mirror to go along with. Which I found this perfect oval mirror at another estate sale.
Again I painted it white with the chalk paint and distressed it some and sealed with the wax. I used a floral garland for both the tie backs for her curtains and as an accent piece above the mirror.
Painting the wall’s
Just like the half bath and the rest of the house her room was this brown taupe color. Behr paint is my favorite paint to use when doing any color changes in the house. I picked out a color called Moxie in eggshell enamel, the eggshell paint will be easier for cleaning up.
Shabby Chic Bedding
Needing a new bedspread I found this sweet little quilt at Target, I have a pillow sham ordered just waiting for it to come in. I made the blue pillowcase a few months ago, it really doesn’t go well with the room but she likes it so it shall stay. She was also in need of a new bed shirt that I also found at Target, I love the little eyelet detail.
I don’t know about you all but buying curtains always bother’s me, I know what I want but never can find the exact ones anywhere. Well, this time it was the exception, I wanted silky pale pink curtains and that’s what I found. The tie backs like I said was a floral garland that I cut down to the size I wanted.
With some finishing touches like flowers and a couple of lace dollies, little Lady was very pleased with how her room turned out.
I also loved how her Shabby Chic room turned out ~ Jenny
