Seeing as he's moved on to other things, I felt his stinky teenager and rabbit smelling (he kept the rabbit and cage in the bedroom against our wishes) bedroom could use a change. I wish the camera would have been in working condition when I started the painting to show it step by step, but he's where it's at now.
Close your eyes and imagine peanut buttery goodness of color on the walls. The color is in fact called peanut butter (Behr). A DIY headboard as seen here and plain white bedding. Okay, now open your eyes and check our the after.
I really don't know what I was thinking when I decided I needed some major stripes in that room. Maybe I wanted something dramatic since the room has really high ceilings and I felt like I couldn't find any decor to fill in that space? Perhaps. Either way, it was a lot of work taping, painting, and then retouching, but I'm actually liking it a lot. Maybe I'm crazy. I recovered the DIY headboard with fabric I already had (and have lots of still). I actually didn't buy anything for this little makeover. All I bought was the 2 inch blue painter tape. You can definitely call this budget friendly. Oh wait, I did just buy that wicker elephant table at the thrift store last week. I couldn't resist. It's soo cutie. I think it fits and it'll definitely work in a baby room later on. I'm thinking ahead here.
I scored two white floating shelves from IKEA for free! from a colleague and am thinking of putting them up on the wall not seen here and then putting up some photos of our honeymoon and other beachy like things on 'em. There's also a white dresser from IKEA in that room that I'm going to buy knobs for. Remember, this is the fabric I'm working with in there. I'm taking out the orange and the turquoisey-blue out for the accents.
