Sneak Peek of Kate’s New Cottage Bedroom


sneakpeek

Oh…my aching back.  Ok, I’ll stop complaining.  A few weeks ago, Kate came to me and said that she didn’t like her room any more.  I asked why, and she said that it just didn’t feel like her.  She was sick of all of the hot pink, and wanted her room to be “cottagy” like the rest of the house.  Kate wanted a cottage bedroom with aqua touches.  I was elated!  As a blogger, nothing is better than the prospect of redesigning an entire room…fun, fun!  In true me style, I have figured out multiple ways to do it on the cheap.  I am going to give you a few little sneak peeks…because I love sneak peeks, and because there is still much to be done before the reveal next week.

We have pulled out yet another old window for a fun photo project, and hung a little bling over her bed.

An old dresser I found on the side of the road has gotten a face lift and a pretty new lamp has been added.

Kate picked out some new bedding at Marshall’s this weekend…it even had the description “Cottage” on the packaging, so she had to have it.

The vanity that I found on the side of the road got a new paint job using Maison Blanche chalk paint that my friend Shannon @ Fox Hollow Cottage sells.

The dresser came with a gorgeous mirror, but it got broken during it’s short stint in the garage.  So, until I get a new mirror cut, Kate is using another one we had.

And cottage charm may reign over the rest of the room, but concerts and karaoke will be happening, so Kate’s brother Cam donated his iJuke, since his Mimi gave him a pimped out stereo system for his room.

So…what do you think?  I can’t wait to show it to you all finished up next week!

After that, I’m moving to Cam’s room…whether he likes it or not :)  Can you say man cave?

    O.K., I can’t wait to see a full pic of the dresser. I have one of these still with the “original” worn out, cracked wood laminate top. I am ready to give it new life, so thank you for inspiring.
