Beach Bedroom

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. Check out the other great transformations.


This is the trasformation of my Daughter's room. When we came home from living in the Middle East five years ago she was 14 and shose to have her room painted yellow. We carefully painted stripes in three shades on the headboard wall. The rest of the decorations evolved as a teeage girls room will do.



These photos show the room after I had taken all her posters and things down.



She has become enchanted with the beach recently so I decided to go that direction. The paint is Behr's Embellished Blue. It came out a lot doarker than I anticipated but Daughter loves it. We switched out the quilt I made for her in bright colors for a calm white. The curtains are a breezy white as well.



The shell wreaths are the ones we made last summer. The paining was done in oil by Husband's cousin many years ago. It's not quite finished, I want to make tropical print throw pillows and I have a chair to paint white.. That's the large dresser I posted about here.





Thanks for checking out my Veteran's Day project. I can't believe Husband and I were able to paint it without getting on each other's nerves. That was a great day!

Love the Re-Do. My 22 year old daughter just redid her room too. She chose blue also, with some brown mixed in there.
It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing the change.
