It's now time for the long awaited bedroom reveal
after months of promising it it is FINALLY here! Now, I LOVE my pink and brown room. But lately (especially after seeing this fantastic quilt that I ever so want to make... maybe next summer) I wanted more color in my room. I came up with a color scheme of pink, green, brown, teal, and coral (could you have guessed?). The pink, green, and brown is already covered so I just need to add splashes of coral and teal here and there to make my room what I want.
Do you love it? I do!
Even 8 months after we painted my room, I STILL don't have all the decor and stuff done. I know I know. Call me slow. But I keep trading the old in for 'new' (new to me or found under my bed with a new idea on how to transform it) So can you use your imagination for some things? Mmmk thanks.
Allow me to be your tour guide and show you around... here we go!
(I will warn you now, may be the longest most picture filled post yet)
First, let's start of with before pictures. My room wasn't in need of a paint job that bad. But it needed a little up to date sorta thing
Well isn't that cute... all my lovely decor on one shelve.
All junk on one side... skimpy little music stand in the corner (now hides in my closet)
Pretty... no curtains.
NOW! For what it is now!
This is the view when you walk it (my light looks like it is shining down on some holy place)
If you turn you have my chair, a dog I won in 6th grade, cork board, shelves (garage sale) green M, flower. (USE YOUR IMAGINATION FOR THE FLOWER! Pretend the blue area is coral.), pink polka dot bag (from hobby lobby) Oh and that little black doodad next to the M is a chalkboard. I just haven't written on it in a while. (do you see my black boots in the bottom left? Roll filing cabinet folders in them and they stand up! Works like a charm... thank you pinterest!)
Across from my bed is my desk as you can see in the first picture. This is where my sewing machine lives or where my laptop charges (and where many crafts are preformed). I would like to paint the desk white... but am to afraid
and don't want to take the time to strip it and sand and spend the money on it cause I am lazy and don't have a steady income.
Left side: sewing stuff and two pillow projects I NEED to get done
Ahh... you meet the ugly lamp once again. Well I think I have decided what to do! From the comments it seems like the bold stand was a big hit. I loved it too. So a bold stand of the color coral with most likely a white shade it shall be! So stay tuned for a BIG reveal!
The black friends frame Taylor gave to me for my birthday this year. I LERVE it.
The smily frame: frame is from Hobby Lobby I think. Added smile with stickers
The other side of my desk has more strorage. Since it is in an open area it has to be pretty. I have various glass jars holding thread, chalk, buttons, and tacks (behind the cow piggy bank). And a tray with all my Pbteen magazines (I have quite the collection, but have only bought 1 thing. Actually it was a birthday present)
The jars that hold the thread and buttons are from Hobby Lobby
Chalk and tack jars are baby food jars that I cleaned up
I am not sure where the cow is from. Could be I won it at the summer reading program at the library years ago. I think it is mighty cute. Kinda looks like it could be for a boy's room because of the blue star, and well it's a cow (not saying blue is just for boys and a girl can't have a cow in her room... just if I were a boy I would prefer a cow bank over a pig bank).
My sister made the craft block, collection of Pbteen magazines, camera cord, and the crazy haired girl is a highlighter. (don't know why the picture is blurry)
Mirror is actually from Taylor. I bought it at their garage sale. Chalkboard I made from an old tray, and the M, which is actually a picture holder is the one thing I own from the lovely Pbteen.
(Don't I look all smily in the mirror? Don't get my wrong, I really didn't mind taking these pictures!)
Now for my bed. I made 2 out of the 3 throw pillows. My grandma made the green one. (Basic Pillow, flower felt pillow)
Oh and my bedding is from Kmart.
My nightstand is painted Pear Green- Benjamin Moore. But I am thinking painting it white and on the shelves adding teal paper. Still deciding.
Everything here was bought. Not sure where I got the lamp. The magnet board and flower magnets are from Home and Company, downtown Holland. Alarm clock... probably Meijer. Along with the kleenex box. The blue box was a stocking present one year.
Now for the shelves
We'll start on the shelve above the desk.
(nasty bright but yet dark picture... thank you sun! I shouldn't complain... the weather has been simply delightful lately!)

Can't forget the closet can we?
Where would all the clothes be?
My closet isn't all that exciting except for the darlin little door knobs from Hobby lobby. Oh and that sign next to it says 10 more days of school... can you believe it?
We mustn't forget my ADORABLE curtains which I love. Thanks again Tara!
