Last week I posted pictures of my upcoming fabric line
They were taken in Kassidy's room.
Since then I've had lots of emails asking me about her room.
So The other day I snapped a few pictures to show you...
(I might be exaggerating about the few...haha)
We re-did her room last winter.
The walls were a light vintage pink for quite a while
and even though Kass loves pink...
we decided it was time for a teenager room up-date!
Kassidy and I did all of the painting.
We painted the walls gray and all of the trim and closet doors white.
We also painted inside of both dormer window seats white.
As for the end walls, we painted them with large gray and white stripes.
It was easy and if you are wondering how to do it,
there are plenty of tutorials on Pinterest.
We ripped out the carpet...
(I'm sooo over carpet)
And Mr. Honey laid the new flooring along with our 16 year old son, Sterling.
I have to giggle a bit because when I
started taking these photos of her room to show you...
She was so involved with her texting and music...
that I managed to get several shots
before she knew what I was doing!
Then she promptly moved over to the chairs:)
As you can see, her bed is just waiting to be filled
with lots of quilts and pillows made from Gracie Girl.
Kassidy loves vintage style as much as I do...
(after all...that is what she's always been surrounded by)
And we had fun shopping the thrift stores together
looking for things for her room.
I love finding an old piece of furniture and making it
look new again with just a few coats of paint.
We found this little desk top letter writing set and knew
it would be the perfect thing to go on her nightstand.
The side rack holds her remotes instead of mail...
and the drawers hold her
phone cases...earbuds...charging cords etc...
instead of envelopes and stamps.
A perfect little re-purposed project!
Kassidy is a dancer...
so her number one request was a ballet bar so that
she could put on her point shoes and dance anytime she wanted.
Mr. Honey made it with a cut to measure piece of stair bannister and brackets.
Now all she has to do is push the two large chairs against the wall
and there is plenty of room for her to twirl across the floor...
or play the wii:)
This is her desk and homework station.
She has had the desk for a few years but it used to be white.
We painted it a darker shade of gray than the walls.
We plan on making desk accessories with
The chair is one we have had for a long time.
It was Kassidy's great grandma's sewing chair and Mr. Honey spray painted it.
This is the only spray painted piece in the room...
the rest of the furniture was all lovingly brush painted by our hands:)
This girly girl sign on her desk describes her perfectly..
But even a girly girl keeps candy in her room for her friends...
And rides a long board...
and plays a cute pink guitar:)
Kassidy likes to sit on her bedroom floor
in front of the mirror to do her nails, hair and make-up...
so we bought another aqua rolling cart from IKEA
(just like the one that I keep in my studio)
It's a portable girly girl station and works perfectly:)
I managed to take a peek inside one of her closets before she made me close it:)
We thought it would be fun to paint the back of her door aqua...
I think it turned out so cute and it looks great against the gray walls.
It's tricky taking a picture of a mirror when you are
wearing your pajama's and your hair is sticking up:)
We painted this thrifted frame the same pink as
her nightstand topper, ballet bar and dresser.
Mr. Honey cut us a piece of wood to fit the frame
and we painted it with dark gray chalkboard paint.
Kassidy and her friends have fun
writing messages to each other and doodling on it:)
And speaking of her dresser...
(haha...caught her again:)
it came from the thrift shop too.
We looked for one like it for quite a while before we finally found it.
We wanted one that would work as an entertainment center too...
with large drawers and a middle cupboard to keep her wii and dvd player.
It's from the 1970's.
We hit the jackpot with this one!
We primed it with KILZ and then brushed on three good coats of paint.
Mr. Honey spray painted the handles a glossy white for an adorable finish!
It was missing the knob on the center door so we replaced it with a crystal one:)
The dresser is very heavy, built well and in wonderful shape.
We payed 75.00 for it at thrift shop.
I used my small thimble ruler to quickly piece her
a runner for the top to protect it from the flatscreen...
And we bought two of these cute lamps from IKEA as well as two chandeliers.
(we are lucky enough to have an IKEA 5 minutes from our home)
The chairs came from the family room after I bought new furniture.
We bought slipcovers for them from Surefit so they would match her room.
They are really comfy and perfect for watching movies or playing video games.
This lava lamp quilt was made using my large Thimble Rulers and 10" squares.
Kassidy and I together made both of the quilts that are on the back of the chairs.
We used "Jade" from Riley Blake solids for the back.
We made both quilts in one day.
This Hexie quilt was made using my large Hexie Half Rulers...
and 10" squares.
We used "Raspberry" from Riley Blake solids for the back.
It just happens to be the exact same shade as her dresser...
I wonder how that happened?...(grin)
We found this cute favorite Audrey quotes subway art
for 20.00 dollars at Home Goods.
Isn't it perfect!
Kassidy loves Audrey Hepburn...as you can see.
Her photo was the first purchase that we made for her new room..
even before the paint.
She wanted it to hang exactly where it does!
The mirrors above and below the ballet bar came from Hobby Lobby and Home Goods.
She has sheers hanging in the windows for the light ...
but there are blinds to pull down when needed for privacy.
She likes to sit in her window seats and watch the street below:)
You can bet that these window seats will be
filled with pillows from Gracie Girl too!
These cute little stools are extra seating or end tables for the large comfy chairs.
They also came from IKEA and we plan to crochet covers for them:)
Her bookcase is one that we have had in our home since before she was born.
I bought it at an unfinished wood furniture store
and added the gingerbread trim to the corners.
I bought it for this room...
it's always been the nursery and since Kassidy is the baby of the family
she inherited the nursery for her bedroom:)
I have always kept it stocked with books to read to my babies every night.
These favorite books are now kept in the baskets
for reading to Sophie and Kassidy keeps her books on the shelves above.
We have been collecting these vintage glass jars from
the thrift shop for her bracelets, sunglasses etc.
Can you see the salesman sample board for Gracie Girl behind them?
Here room re-do inspired the collection and we designed it together:)
This vintage powder jar is perfect for her rings...
and this black frame with padded inside holds her very favorite earrings.
We thrifted this vintage dresser mirror and
spray painted silver over the gold for a cute perfume holder.
We made this necklace holder by drilling holes
in a piece of wood for this cute knob assortment.
All came from Hobby Lobby.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Kassidy's room re-do.
I really should have posted it before now.
You'll be seeing a lot more of it now that we
have our sample yardage of Gracie Girl...
we can start the decorating!!!
Have a redecorating kind of day...
