And that is exactly what I am here to talk about today. The upcycling of the bed frames and their room progress!
We are in the middle of moving furniture and decorating 3 rooms right now and the original photos got lost. So I did the next best thing to give you an idea of how the bed frames looked.
What I Used:
- DecoArt Americana Satin Enamel Paint in Black
- DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting
- DecoArt Americana Decor Cream Wax
The How To:
So we used my favorite paint Americana Decor Satin Enamels in Black (affiliate link on the bottom of this post) to make all that gold disappear.
Simple and elegant. And don’t you just love the way that rug contrasts with the black and white?
Of course it would not be a young ladies room without fairy lights. One for the wall and another one for the headboard.
The other girl is more into blue so after a long search I found this lovely set at Amazon, which incorporates her love of blue while at the same time fitting in with the rest of the black and white scheme. And it coordinates perfectly with her sister’s striped cover. Another great buy also 100% cotton!
We have also added a small table next to the bed. It also needs a paint refresh. But we are definitely getting there.
The long mirror has been moved to the back of the door. I mean really how many mirrors do these girls of mine need?
And while visiting the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago I found this contact paper that is perfect for their room. It is girly but also cool because of the black and white factor. So what did we do?
This bookcase is the Billy we had gotten from Ikea and it stores “Ina the Tea Lady’s” things. Can you tell she loves tea?
One pretty box is nice but lots of pretty boxes is even better. See what an impact all of these boxes make together on the bookcase?
All of this from the Dollar Tree! You just never know when inspiration will strike.
And the boxes were leftovers from the Amazon orders we have been getting. I tell you the best part of living here is the on-line shopping! “wink”
The other Billy bookcase belongs to my other daughter who loves blue and if you have been following me for a while you may even recognize that picture on the right hand side. It is a copy of Amedeo Modigliani’s ‘Jeanne Hebuterne’ and my girls favorite. It was the inspiration for her old room and now it has moved with us to New York. I guess some things never change.
And of course some fun elements with a framed chalkboard and funny glasses. And the pretty contact paper which is in both of the bookcases. And to the right is a Himalayan Salt lamp like the one I had shown here, only this one is a mini size.
