Last summer my daughter Megan and I decided to do a bedroom make over for her. We took a Winter Break and then decided to finish up this month. We got many ideas from Urban Outfitters & Free People and added a little Megan style.
Lounge Area: The rug is from World Market. Ottoman is a palate with 4" casters added on bottom. I used Mod Podge & scrapbook paper on each of the top boards to add a fun twist. Pillows: These are a mixture of sizes. I made most of the pillow covers. The green floral was from TJ Maxx. Curtains: I bought two drop cloths from Home Depot and used Painters Tape to create the Chevron Stripe pattern at the bottom.
Lamps: (left) Target lamp. I loved that the top opened to fill the jar with my own treasures! Clock: Hobby Lobby (right) We found the shade base at an Antique store for $8. I rummaged through my moms stash of Lace Doilies to create this look we saw at Urban Outfitters.
Bedding: White Ruffle bedding by Shabby Chic @ Target. Starfish Pillow: I made a square burlap pillow, drew a star pattern, traced the shape on the pillow, then used my hot glue gun to attach random buttons.
Doilie Dream Catcher: We considered doing a tutorial for this. In the end we decided it was very tedious work that would be hard to teach. The strands are lace, twine, ric-rac, chunky yarn, raffia, sequins, and pearl strands. Also attached are shells, rocks, feathers, and beads.
Trunks: Green trunk was given to me but I see similar at antique stores and thrift shops often. The silver tiered tray is from Pottery Barn.
Tile Wall: Megan and I saw this idea at Urban Outfitters. They had the entire wall behind the register using this look. It was pretty simple to make. I went to Home Depot and found a 2' X 4' particle board and had them cute it in 1' X 1' squares. We used the floral material and Mod Podge on some of the boards. I also found the metal tiles at Home Depot. All of the tiles were hung using 3M velcro strips. ( #love #sohandy )
This wall has a mixture of different size bulletin boards from Wal Mart. Flowers: Hobby Lobby Boxes: my husband made out of wood from a palate. I also added one Metal tile left over for variation. I laid this out on the floor to decide the pattern and then started with the middle bulletin board and worked my way around until everything was hung. (Use a leveler & ruler to keep it all straight)
Armoire: antique pièce. You can find treasures like this at antique stores, craigslist, thrift stores and even garage sales! Suitcases: same as armoire.
Jewelry Display: Megan and I made this display this week. You can use any frame to make these. There are a variety of materials to back them. I used a 32 gage metal fence material I got from Lowe's. I nailed it on the back. Megan wanted to burlap and lace added to make it more feminine. (Leave me a comment if you would like a tutorial for this)
