tween room #4

I found this chair at a second hand store. It was cute, but now it is cuter!

It's almost done!

My old dressing table, all jazzed up!

The blinds will come down. I have something big planned...stay tuned.

The shelves are in, the glass piece has been ordered for the center desk.
What I learned from these projects:
  • These bookshelves were never intended to be painted, no matter how much you sand and prime.
  • When there is a will, there is a way!
  • I can actually miter corners.
  • My children use their imaginations when I am immersed in projects.
  • This room makeover definately bonded my E. and I!

Jen, It looks wonderful. I can't wait to see it in person. You really have a talent! I am sure E loves her room. She is lucky to have a Mom like you. Steph B.
