last month my daughter, Cady, and I re-decorated her bedroom.... that particular basement bedroom has gone through many changes in the past 4 years...
1. right after we moved in.. it was my sons room at first.... UGLY paneling and shag carpeting (that we promptly removed.
2.we eventually did paint the room for her brother. off-white with my feeble attempt to sponge stamp a border. yuk. (took this pic before we painted it for Cady)
3. Cady's pink and lime green room. The pink was bough full price, but the green was from the "oops" bin at Lowes. I got the paisley bedspread on clearance at walmart. Was planning on painting the hand-me-down furniture white, but never got around to it. (bad mama)
4. The latest transformation. She wanted hot pink and leopard print... I wasn't that confident it would look ok, but I was wrong. I turned out very cute. the top half is tan (leftover from bathroom re-do), bottom is hot pink (leftover from her earlier room re-do), bought the dark brown for the stripe and doors... found a roll of leopard print wallpaper at the thrift store for $3.. one end had gotten wet but I used a jigsaw and cut about 2 inches off then cut several strips 6 inches wide. then just rotated to make the ends match up. got a plain tan comforter, and found a leopard print sheet at the thrift store for a buck that I sewed simple curtains and pillow cases out of. She got the leopard flip chair at the DAV thrift store for $5. SHE LOVES THE ROOM.
5. just a pic of her posin' in her room on Senior appreciation night in her uniform... its been over a month since we finished her room and she still loves it...
thanks for looking
