Room reveal10:04:00 AM
Well everyone! The time has come! To share my FINISHED room with you all! You saw the before pictures HERE and have seen a few of the items I made for my room but how about the finished project?! I told you all that I was on a budget! We budgeted out for paint and the furniture which we purchased at Ikea (I LOVE it!). Anything extra I sold items around my home or in my room to be able to pay for.
First off when you walk into my room...you will notice that I repainted the walls AND the moulding! Goodbye wood moulding! I do not miss you! I used paint from Valspar (carried at Lowe's) and was highly impressed with them! I have always been a Kelly Moore Paint snob and unfortunately we do not have them in Oregon any longer so had to find something new! I tried lots of paint samples from various places and the quality and lack of smell from the Valspar Ultra paint and primer was unbeatable! It took a gallon and 1 court of Egg Shell based in the color Fountain Mist (I used my paint from my bathroom which is called True Turquoise and decided I wanted a light version of it so the rooms would flow nicely together!). The moulding (only took a quart and we have PLENTY left!) a Semi-gloss in the color Bistro White. In the picture above you will see that I added a mirror to my door ($5.99 at Target IN store...noticing online price is WAY higher!). And the picture above our door says Aleisha & Paul always kiss me goodnight. My sister special ordered it from Walmart of all places!
OH how I LOVE my new dresser from Ikea! I for once in my life can easily open a drawer and have LOTS of extra drawer space! It is a women's dream! (link to dresser is HERE) The green vase on top I already had and I bought the white decos you see at Ikea as well (HERE and HERE) One holds a votive candle and the other is holding some primroses!
I LOVE these little storage bins from Ikea!! They are magnificent!! (found HERE) The little glass jars I had originally found at Anthropology for $10.99 each. I wanted them SO bad but could not for the life of me chalk up the dollars for them. To me $33 for little glass jars to hold staples, change and paper clips didn't make any sense when I was on a budget. Low and behold. I went to Michael's Craft store and was walking around and what to my wondering eyes did I see?! YEP! Identical. I mean totally identical little glass jars for $3.99 each! I combined with a 50% off coupon and the rest is history! I love them! We had to get rid of our desk calendar as it was too large. But the back of the hutch is dry erase and magnetic! So I now have my lists and a small weekly calendar attached!
My desk feels uncluttered and organized! The shelf on the top of the hutch currently has empty picture frames that I will add pictures of Olivia Joy into!
We used the nightstand I already had (we purchased at Ikea and I no longer see it online) and the lights we had purchased years ago as well from Ikea. The star I purchased used and painted it the same white I used on the moulding! I paid a total of $5 for the star!
As you know I made the headboard (tutorial HERE) and I bought all new bedding! The bed skirt was $27 from Target. The throw blanket was $29 from Target and the duvet and 2 pillow cases that match were from Ikea for $39 (no longer seeing on the website). The throw pillows we already had!
My poor dear husband has a very small space in between the wall and the bed. We had a plant stand as a night stand for many years but I was sick of killing myself every time I made the bed as he leaves his books and magazines on the side of his bed! Solution? I had a friend of ours that is a builder and does an amazing job with making furniture build me a shelf from scraps he had from his own home remodel! I painted it myself with the Bistro white I used on the moulding! (took 3 coats) I also bought a small basket from Ikea to hold all of his randoms at the bottom of the shelf!
I love how bright and cheery my room is now! The curtains clashed with the paint color and the moulding we had in here before and I honestly cannot get enough of my room! The shelf I bought at Ikea (HERE) It contains adorable containers I found at Target to hold all of Olivia Joy's items! Clothing, diapers etc! It is PERFECT! Since this picture I added 1 more thing to it.
Isn't the chevron basket PERFECT??! I love it! It now holds all of Olivia's blankets (and as you can see we have officially filled the baskets!)
That's it! That's all she wrote! I find my room to be so cozy and its such an oasis for me! I now officially have room for the co-sleeper and we can move around freely without bonking into each other! Also the furniture we chose has a wide enough space to vacuum under the furniture! HUGE for me!! Its amazing! Now all we need is our 6th addition to our household!!
Have a blessed day!
