Kaitlyn’s Bedroom

I’ve been working on my daughter Kaitlyn’s bedroom for several months now. Painting furniture and walls and changing her bedding and window treatments. Here is a before picture of her room:

We were already starting to take things off the walls before I remembered to take the before picture. I do that a lot! 😛

As we were preparing to change up her room Kaitlyn helped by picking colors she liked for her furniture and her walls as well as her bedspread. We did a lot of searching and pinning on Pinterest and it’s finally come together.


Oh yes! I taped all those stripes! Definitely extra work but look how cute!! Completely worth the extra time and effort!

Kaitlyn really liked the blue, white, grey and yellow and I love how they all come together to make a fun room for a teenage girl! Fortunately after all the work I put in she loves it!!


I will post about her bedroom furniture and painting that striped wall soon and show before and after pictures. This was a boys bedroom set but with a little Louis Blue and Old White and a few changes to the hardware it’s now perfect for a girl!

This project took some time but I love how this turned out! Tell me what you think in the comments section. I would love to hear from you! 😉


Vintage Record Player in Old White

A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked if I would paint a piece of furniture for her. I, of course, said yes! She and her husband had an old vintage record player that had been in the family for many years and they wanted to give it an updated look.

They chose Old White and then wanted a distressed look. So after giving it a coat of clear wax I added the dark wax.

The hardware was painted and distressed as well. I love the character that the speakers give this piece. It was fun to paint a piece for a friend and I was happy to hear they liked it. 🙂

Tell me what you think of this great piece. I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for taking a look
