Hi all!!! I hope you are having an excellent week!
The sun is shining here in New England and the birds are singing.
It’s a great day to tackle the to-do list!
I mentioned the other day that I’m taking my 15 year old daughter Hannah’s room from
TWEEN to TEEN
and trying to do so without spending much moola.
I sold her sweet little twin size bed on our local Facebook yard sale site,
and my mission was to only spend what I made on the bed to make this space function a bit better for Hannah’s high school years.
The current name of the game for this little lady is
and to that end, a major reduction in visual distractions was needed in Hannah’s room.
You may recall I created a little vanity area for her last year to take away the very strong magnetism of nail polish and straight irons from the homework area :), but between Hannah’s bureau, desk, vanity table, end tables, new super-sized bed (more on that later!) and all the accoutrements of a teenage girl, all of a sudden her room became very crowded.
So – time to rethink all the pieces of furniture in this room.
Out went the vanity table. Out went the desk which was really big, and fits much better in my 13 year old’s room.
I found this console table ($30 on the Facebook yard sale site) and with it’s drawers and slim tabletop, it was perfect for Hannah’s room.
All it needed was a light sanding and a fresh coat of paint (General Finishes Snow White milk paint).
I love a desk in front of a window, especially this one overlooking our perennial garden – Hannah has the best seat in the house!
Cute little acrylic knobs found at Lowes.
I’m going to get a piece of glass cut for the top so it will be hard wearing.
Ahhhhh, an uncluttered space…..isn’t it glorious? Won’t stay that way for long.
I also built a chunky headboard……
and am so excited about this fun lighting project!!
More on those projects in the near future!
Have a wonderful day my lovelies and thanks for stopping by!
