I never shared my daughter's room we re-did on a tight budget. She wanted green and orange and she wanted OWLS. I said okay. Sounds good. She first wanted orange walls and I said no way. Could not stand looking at that so she picked this lovely green.
We picked up a green spread on clearance for $17 at Target. We also used pillows she had and added an orange one. The cute owl pillow was also clearance at Target and the other was from Etsy.
I have to say Target was good to us because I then found this lamp which was perfect on clearance for around $9.
She wanted a shelf for her favorite books and we used one we had in the garage. No money spent.
I took two hideous old pictures and flipped the inside part over and painted with chalk board paint. I then used samples to paint the frames bright. The cute green owl came off of a gift.
Okay, I let her have some orange and bright orange at that in this cupboard. It was just full of shelves before so we took some out and made it a cozy desk area for her.
All her owl collection has been hung up and displayed.
Now some of you will recognize this peg shelf. Remember these? It is from about '91. It was country blue and sitting in the garage. We painted it with the bright orange and I think it came out great. Perfect for her bags.
We got rid of a bulky old desk so she could have her keyboard out all the time. We have a regular piano but she uses this all the time when in her room. I am so proud of her as she earned a piano chair as an incoming freshman in the high school concert band. She is going to be so busy this year. This owl picture was a gift from her aunt and uncle. The old wicker cabinet has seen better days but she needed more space so it works under here.
I think it came out really cute and she loves it so that is what I wanted. Also, with paint and using what we had and a few clearance items, I think we spent less than $100. Can't beat that. Sharing over Brenda's new party at Cozy Little House.
