Bedroom Spruce-Ups!

Here are a few bedrooms I recently made over. I used what my clients already had (furnishings and paint colors) and added to that with fresh window treatments, bedding, throw pillows and a few accessories.  If you are interested,  I already showed you the family room and dining room, for this same residence, click here and here to see them.

My client's mother painted the artwork.  The whole design was based around them.

  Isn't it amazing what new window treatments, bedding, throw pillows, etc. can do to breathe new life into a space!

End Table to Play Table

Santa brought my girls a play table for Christmas.  
It started out as a boring (but sturdy) end table.
And this is how Santa transformed it.

The table was found at a second-hand shop.  It cost $25:) The red chairs were also found at a second-hand shop/$35 for both!

Santa painted the table white with left over house paint and then painted the colorful stripes with craft acrylic paint.  To seal the table and make it really durable, it was topped off with three coats of polycrylic (an absolute must!).
Santa decided on the colors by referring to a fabric that will be used in their room.

This table gets moved all around the house, it's been a lot of fun!
