I have been working on Etta’s pink and navy bedroom SLOWLY but surely…
It has been a big project. When we moved in the space was an open common room or family room space that we built into a bedroom, then we had to re-insulate the walls, install drywall, mud and tape, install a new window (details on that next week I am SO excited about them!) install moldings, paint the walls, replace the flooring and more… and I haven’t shown you anything, because I am SO slow! Technically I started it way back in January. But I should just accept that it is how we work, Go Tortoises! (which is probably why I still haven’t shown you everything from my last house)
But anyway we are just inching along doing little bits as we can (between other big projects). Can I admit I am running out of steam?…. I am just a bit. But we are finally getting to the fun stuff, less building, more cute, yet still a lot of work. I am trying to psyche myself up to finishing an entire project. I am a totally an 85% done is good enough for me kinda girl until we have to sell a house, and breaking that habit is HARD!
So please, dare me to actually finish a project.
Cue the cute, decor stuff, trying to get motivated here!
I painted some drapes for her room (like this and this old featured project) and I will try to show you those and a tutorial by next week… (wow those are fighting words, did a speeding rabbit hop in and type that to the tortoise? I guess that means I have to write that post too… yikes.) (Update: Get the tutorial for the polka dot confetti drapes here!)
Lately, I have been collecting a few of the decorative details for the room and I really wanted to show you those…
Girls pink and navy bedroom details:
I love the colors of this little set of 4 owl banks. The orange will probably not hang out to long in Etta’s room, but I know we can find a place for it, and my girls LOVE to play with money… should I be worried? Anyway, they are so adorable. I am planning on a few shelves in this room and I think I will sprinkle these around in them.
Star lanterns. (this one is from Ikea around
Got this at a random store in the mall…
and spray painted it with Rustoleum Berry pink.
I got these stackable storage boxes
on clearance from Walmart like 4 years ago.
Frame from Ross or TJ Maxx.
Pillow from Wayfair (I got two)
These are both from Ross (last summer)
$3.00 clock from Walmart, love the color and price!
Table set my friend found at a garage sale for me.
The girls LOVE this table
Fabric and paint colors I decided to go with are below. I got gallons of Satin paint from Sherwin Williams in their Emerald line of paints! Although I will tell you more about this in a week or two as I wrap that part of the project up.
Sherwin Williams – SW 6582 Impatiens Pink (walls)
with accents of SW 6584 Cheery and SW 6586 Heart Felt (rug and other places yet to show you!)
For the blue I chose SW 6804 Dignity Blue
and the White was SW 7566 Westhighland White.
Okay, so far this is what one corner of the room looks like! We brought this bench out of storage (it has been there since the move) and Etta LOVES it. I sorta want to recover it, or at least make an impermanent cover option that will match her room a bit more!
If I ever get this room done I REALLY think I am going to like it!
