Here’s a little throwback Thursday.
I’m not sure if a little throwback on a Thursday should make you a little wistful.
But this one does.
This is the before. This room was the twins’ room when they were younger. This is the room of tea parties and stuffed animal boarding school and fancy hats and dance parties and stories that never ended. Before they moved upstairs and ditched the monograms and chose even brighter colors and painted murals on their walls.
The room was a little sad when they left.
After all, who doesn’t love a fancy hat and a tea party with choreography.
It’s repainted and restyled and redone….
…and ready for guests.
Here’s the after.
Entirely different perspective.
It started with this rug.
I loved that other rug so much, but it was full of a life time of tea party crumbs.
When I saw this blue and white rug, I knew the room’s future.
It’s thick and cozy and full of hygge.
I used furniture we already had for the space.
This desk was repainted and finished with new hardware.
It’s perfect for guests to use if they bring computers or electronic devices.
I’m adding a charging station to the top.
I added a white metal accent chair with a wood seat.
It’s lightweight enough to move around the room if guests need extra seating.
I added the red snowflake pillow for a pop of color in this corner.
The bed is from my parent’s home.
It was repainted and fitted with a new blue and white striped duvet cover and shams.
And at the end of the bed, I added this plaid throw.
This is my favorite piece in the entire room.
It’s so soft and adds a little personality without going over the top.
Next came the wall art.
I painted the Colony Club sign for an extra bit of color on the wall and we spray painted the United States that was a clearance find.
The wire basket organizers are perfect for books, notebooks and extra supplies.
On the desk, I added this board game that my brother made for me for Christmas.
He routed the entire piece and framed it and I love the uniqueness of it.
It’s sitting on a desk with a story.
I finished off the room with a few accessories.
Like this handmade smile box my brother made.
And the fun metal stool and a wire basket.
And this super cute glass bottle set with the metal holder (that’s on sale right now).
Here’s one more look at the before to the after.
I love how it turned out.
It’s fresh and fun and ready for the next chapter.
All it needs is another dance party.
I’ll start working on my choreography. 🙂
A giant shout out to Birch Lane for partnering with me on this post (all opinions on the room and products and dance parties are my own).
Be sure and stop by Anita from Cedar Hill Farmhouse tomorrow to see her room refresh.
Here’s a few more of my favorite room refreshes from this week:
