Tween Girl Bedroom : Pink + Coral

Tween Girl Pink + Coral Bedroom.  It’s only taken a year to get my older daughter’s bedroom fully decorated.  Her tween girl bedroom turned out so cute!  We had the basics done pretty quickly (bed, bedding, wallpaper, dresser) after moving into this house but then all the little details just took some time.  I really wanted to make it her own and personalize it with her in mind.  So many of the artwork is my daughters, and surprisedly we did a lot of DIYs in her room. Dana Tolbert Photography took all the pictures of her room (except where noted).  They came out so good, and Dana really captured the details of the room.  Sources are below for her tween girl bedroom.

DIY Marble Gold Coffee Table

DIY marble gold coffee table.  I’m finally posting a DIY project I did earlier this summer.  It’s one of my favorite home decor Ikea hack/ Jonathan Adler knockoff project.  And everytime I walk by it, I smile!  I love Jonathan Adler’s gold accent furniture, but each piece is well above my price range. So this is my alternative, and it’s working perfectly.

I’ve done a lot of home projects with gold accenting.  Check out my post over at How Does She, where I talk about my favorite gold techniques for DIY projects.  This project will cost you less than $80.  Not bad for some glamour.

Head yourself over to Ikea and pick up the Vittsjo nesting tables for $59.  Then pick up a can of Rustoleum Metallic Gold spray paint.  This is the best brand for metallic gold.  Put together the nesting table then spray paint the frame gold. Only the frame.

 

Then head over to Amazon and buy marble contact paper.  Then take the wood coffee table table, cut to size and cover with the marble contact paper.  Warning…sorry for the bad pictures!

 

 

 

 

You are done!  Put your glass top on the bottom of the coffee table.  Accessorize the top and enjoy!

Bathroom Update

Our bathroom is ALMOST done. Some of the finishing details are delaying the process, but it’s pretty much done. The toilet is in and bathtub and vanity. It looks really good and completely different…but still the same (in a good way).

Some things that I learned about renovating is make a list! I was very involved in the whole process, and was in charge of getting a lot of the finishing materials. I didn’t make a list–just kept everything in my head. Not good because I forgot some of the minor items. Like shower curtain rod (which had to be special ordered) and lighting sconces. Those small things have delayed everything being 100% done. Also, measure out your walls, the size of the shower/tub and anything else. Write it down and take that paper when buying materials. It makes it so you don’t have to make multiple trips to the hardware store yet making the whole process delayed.

I found some great online resources. Some of them I’ll share next week. But one online resource for very reasonable priced Italian cararra mable was Builder’s Depot Direct. They sell very competitive pricing for tile especially Cararra tile. The only thing is you have to consider shipping, but they have a program for lower shipping rates.

Flowers in a Vase

I’ve been enjoying my lilac tree indoors for the last few weeks. The smell of lilacs remind me of my mama. I just went out and noticed the flowers’ bloom are dying–it’s getting too hot. Makes me wish it could last all summer.

Settee

I’m on the search for the perfect little settee/chair for my sunroom/office space. I sold my large chair-and-a-half, eventhough it was hard to let go (it was a wedding gift). But the girl who bought it from me was really excited to have it so I know it has gone to good hands. Of course I’m on a tight budget. These are a few I like. But I’m having a hard time really settling on one. I’ve been checking craigslist everyday and ebay. Found nothing. I was going to go with a JcPenney settee but it’s now discontinued (sad). Anyway, seen any settee or accent chairs lately? I’m getting confused now.

Nate Berkus Studio Sofa–I like it in the velvet gray (good with kids).

West Elm’s Gates Chair–love the modern wingback look. Thinking I could pair it with a pouf.
