It’s been a long road of DIY madness, but I’m thrilled to announce the completion of Songbird’s room. I adore it and, more importantly, so does she. Now the space is as light-hearted and playful as the girl who dreams there.
OTHER SIDE BEFORE:
Handsome has given me a hard time about the many, many months it’s taken me to finish just this one room, but nearly every single thing in here was done all by muhself, by hand.
I painted the room (yes, it was already white, but I re-painted it in eggshell finish because flat paint drives me crazy), installed the crown molding, painted & upholstered the bed, fabric-wrapped the boxspring, handpainted the scallop accent wall, sewed the beanbag chair, revamped the corkboard, salvaged and refinished the desk and the nightstand, rebuilt lampshades, hardwired new lighting, handpainted the clock detailing, sewed new pillowcases, sewed and painted accent pillows, built a wall mirror, strung a fabric garland, played art director for a tiny artist, made a chore chart, spraypainted a gumball machine and shopped for all the other finishing touches.
So yeah, it took me awhile to squeeze all that in between life’s other happenings. Go figure. ;)
Tomorrow I’ll post a bunch more close ups!
