Here is what Ive done so far (on my $50 dollar budget) ...thanks for all the great ideas!!!
Now what to do from this point ...stencil the curtains? more wall art ?
its always going to be a light airy space...but Ive done my best
Ok my darling girl is away for the summer and would like me to redo her room as we were getting rid of her loft bed etc. The colours are to be black & purple(by her choice) with the unpaintable white walls.
The thing is she a slighty quirky for a 11yr old I know her fav bands (tokeyo love hotel, AFI, My chemical romance) movie tastes (shuan of the dead ,lost boys, sleepy hollow Edward Scissorhands) so lots craftsters might be able to make some sugestions
The thing is 2 years ago she still liked little girl stuff (dragons, fairies pink) I want to support her growth into teenage tastes ....but I dont want to go to a lot of effort for a room that will be disliked in 6 months.. How far do I go ?
grow out of this goth/emo phase after all (I kind of doubt it)
I was thinking of printing big black star or skulls on some purple gingham for the curtains and spray painting the junkie faux wood bookshelves and desk black with purple accents ....maybe a wall art rasterbation but what of
a band that might not be in vogue next month? and I cant bring myself to put zombie pictures in my baby's room now matter how much she might like it .
Help me be a cool (ish) mother
Come on ..some one here must be under 20 or still with 'IT'
