If you have been reading along here at My Color Coded Life, you know we bought a home this past April. And when we bought it we knew we had a lot of work to do on it! As I type this early on Saturday morning, I can hear the contractor stripping walls in the basement! My first reveal post was our Dining Room. Now I am ready to reveal Olivia’s bedroom.
Let’s remember where we started. Here is the picture of the room posted by the previous owners on the real estate websites:
Ok – are you ready? here we go…..
Antique trunk also came from my childhood bedroom. It’s a great toy box. We used Behr paints – Bicycle Yellow for the walls and Hidden Meadow for the baseboards, window trim, and doors. Other colors used throughout the room are pink and blue.
For color schemes we are looking at in other rooms click on Organizing Home Decor Projects.
An OLIVIA wagon. I remember this wagon was originally yellow with a Dad’s Root Beer logo on it before my mom painted it blue. I want to strip it and see what it looks like underneath. Any furniture re-doer bloggers out there have some tips for me?
Remember my Holiday Cabinet? When we moved, I decided not to bring Olivia’s changing table. We have a twin bed in the room and we knew eventually she would be potty trained. I moved the Holiday Cabinet to her room and use the drawer to hold her diapers and the shelves to hold her owl collection! Plus I now have a mantel and fireplace in our living room (my first mantel) so I decorate that for each holiday. (example)
This open shelving unit from William-Sonoma used to be in my kitchen in our old apartment. Now it holds all of Olivia’s bins. Owl bins and green plastic bins are from Target, pink basket bins are from Baby’s R Us.
Green closet door with sunlight shining in from the second window. Owl purse from the Great Wall of China brought back to the States from Olivia’s cousin Lilly. Thanks Lilly!
I found this over the door hook at Burlington Coat Factory – can you believe the perfect match it was to the Meadow Green shade of paint? No I did not paint it! Perfect place to hang towels, out of sight behind the door.
As always, this is still a work in progress. But an improvement – don’t you think? Olivia loves to hang out, play, and read in her room. Things we still need to do – find light switch covers, redo blue furniture, get rid of the rocking chair glider and ottoman (I’m still having a hard time parting with it!), replace light fixture, and apply crown molding around the ceiling. Still plenty to do! So, what do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know. As always, thanks for reading!
