Everything in our house is done in stages, spread very far apart. And so it goes with this teen bedroom makeover.
Fortunately, we chose new paint colors, and, unfortunately, painted big sample squares on the wall that we stared at for weeks.
Fortunately, we bought a full-sized mattress to replace the twin. Unfortunately, the twin was taken away and my daughter slept in a sleeping bag for weeks.
Fortunately, we emptied all of the contents of my daughter’s bedroom into the hallway, living room and teen lounge so we could start painting…
but, unfortunately, we only finished one wall.
A week later, we finally finished the other three walls.
Fortunately, we were able to set up Hannah’s new mattress and bring her things back into her room.
Unfortunately, most of her things are piled against the wall until we figure out where to put everything.
Fortunately, we have a design plan:
~We have purchased the sheets, quilt and shams on sale. We also already have a black accent table.
~Replace current ceiling fixture with a chandelier that provides more light.
~Use a fan to keep room comfortable at night.
~Incorporate purple/plum accents to bring in color.
~Buy or d.i.y. a leaning mirror.
~Buy or d.i.y. a headboard.
~Solve storage problems
~Organize closet space
And of course, all of this will be done…in stages. Fortunately.
See you in class,
