Teenage Bedroom Cleanup: Guest

Pam at DIY Design Fanatic has a nice way of cleaning up. Check out these pictures.

I showed you a sneak peek of this room & the before awhile back in this post. If you noticed I only showed you parts of the room because it was still a huge mess & I was working on some projects for it. Well, I’m still working on some projects for it, but it is FINALLY cleaned up … at least for now. We may put a note on the door (when we show the house) that says “Beware: A Teenager Lives In Here”! 

This is the Before:
Lovely : /

I finally put up the artwork that are actually 4 placemats. I spray painted 2 of them chrome which is extremely difficult to use. The wall paint is Valspar Satin – Lucent Purple

I even got her to clear off the top of the chest 🙂   See how pretty it is?

She told me today that she doesn’t like  iron “Dream” chotchkey. It’s been there for months! If she persists, I will put it in the office because the tag is no longer attached to it.

I’m not thrilled with this corner. I will explain the stool later…hint: she needs it for the armoire. Several months ago I found the most quirky purple chair at HomeGoods that would look great in this corner. Did I buy it? No. Someone put it on hold while I was thinking about it. Still kicking myself. Will probably move the origami mobile that is over the bed to this corner.

Mr. Fanatic is going to make some doohickeys that will raise the bed about 3 inches since it is a little low… and I still have to make a bedskirt from an extra panel I bought when  the curtains were purchased at Target. We bought  the supplies to make something over the bed. I hope I can do this on Saturday. I would like to make a headboard, as well, but that is on the bottom of the list.

This is what we are using to make the artwork for above the bed. Since we will be moving (hopefully), I thought it could be put on some mdf painted the same color of the wall. This way we can take it with us.

And, of course, I am still working on the inside of the armoire, but it is functional.
Overall, her bedroom is functional & clean  – for the moment. Hopefully  she will keep it this way.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wow! What a great MOM to help clean up her daughters room like that.
