Hello World! Welcome Friends! I’m so happy to see you! I know I have been a little absent, but I have been throwing all of my time into Little Dedicated’s bedroom makeover. If you’re new here today visiting all of the wonderful One Room Challenge Room Reveals, welcome! I’m honored to have you here. It has been quite the challenge to balance life and the challenge. But, I’m all finished and am quite pleased with the result. And, the best bonus, is that Little Dedicated loves her new room.
Many thanks must go to Linda at Calling it Home who encouraged us to get busy and makeover one room from top to bottom in 6 weeks! The room I chose to makeover is Little Dedicated’s bedroom. She chose the paint colors and gave me free rein to decorate her room.
Let’s take a look back at what we started with these sad phone pictures.
Let’s take a tour around the room.
The once almond doors are now black using Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black paint in a semi-gloss finish. The doors are now crowned with new Schlage Polished Brass hardware. For the walls, the new color is Rose Garden in eggshell finish from Benjamin Moore, White Opulence in eggshell for the walls and in semi-gloss finish for the trim from Benjamin Moore.
The lingerie chest is part of the bedroom set that was mine when I was a young girl. My brother gave me the milk bottle doll on top of the lingerie chest when I was probably around 8 years old. She now sits in Little Dedicated’s room. The dress could use replacing since it is the original dress from years ago and portions of the lace have deteriorated. Straight ahead is the door that leads to the closet.
The daisy hooks I have had for years are perfect for her dance bag, gymnastics bag and little sweaters. Just before The Bombay Company went out of business, I picked up the curio cabinets for a nice price. We purchased the Pottery Barn Kids Daisy Lamp years ago for her room in our previous home. However we did purchase this pretty, little night stand from Joss & Main. It’s the perfect height and has ample storage for her devotional books and tablet.
These babies, I adore. Both the knobs and back plates I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The back plates were a burnished bronze which I spray painted with Rust-Oleum’s Metallic Gold.
Look how chunky they are! Such a far cry from the previous knobs.
The curios are filled with collectibles from my childhood. Most of the figurines are from Avon in the ’70’s. And the beautiful yellow egg is from a dear college friend who has quite the china collection.
The Teacup Bedding is also from Pottery Barn Kids but is now discontinued. When Little Dedicated was a baby, I made these three little pillows that went with her nursery which had a blue, yellow, green color combination. She requested they stay on the bed. I believe I have a sentimental one on my hands. The touches of blue in the pillows pick up the blue teacups in the bedding and the blue in the artwork above the bed.
Speaking of artwork, this whimsical Paris piece I found in the Children’s Decor section of Home Goods.
This curio is filled with more Avon collectibles as well as a sugar and creamer set I picked up at an antique mall years ago. There is a mirror in the back of the curios; so light just bounces all around the room on a sunny day!
In this shot, we have the new chandy from Pottery Barn Kids as well as the Daisy Quilt and the Pom Pom Blanket. Cozi, the little cat loves the pom pom blanket and thinks we got it just for her.
Isn’t this a darling quilt?
To the right of the curio is a black and white Paris canvas that I popped into a black and gold frame that I had on hand. The bookcase houses Little Dedicated’s favorite books, dance trophies and treasures.
Moving around the room, we have the pink and white gingham checked curtain panels coupled with the Daisy Valance from Pottery Barn Kid’s as well as the Pink Daisy tiebacks and finials.
I thought about recovering the chair, but I decided to leave it as is.
When I was 13, my Mom (aka Betty Lou), made this beautiful flower arrangement. I added more flowers to fill it out a bit and give it a wildflower feel.
The mirror fits perfectly nestled into the corner with ample space to get a good look at oneself.
For laundry, this wicker basket tucks in nicely between the dresser and mirror. Inside, it is lined with a green and white gingham checked lining.
These are three of the custom prints that I ordered from Debbie Cerone. They turned out beautifully and are reasonably priced.
I purposely picked prints that had touches of black in them to tie in with the black doors.
A pink and gingham shade with its green ribbon is a dream and goes perfectly with the curtains and the quilt.
The floral piece above the dresser is from Home Goods.
I adore the Teacup Lamp with its stacked cups and saucers.
The miniature tea set was a Christmas gift from Little Dedicated’s Aunt and Uncle. This dainty set is sheer perfection with its touches of gold.
A glorious mess of flowers.
Here are the other two prints from Debbie Cerone.
Wrapping around to the door leading to the hall.
I thought I would give you a shot with the lights on.
Whew! That’s it for this gal! A huge thank you again to Linda! I should participate in every round. I’m good with a deadline!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Little Dedicated’s room. I enjoyed working on it and am so pleased that my one and only little loves it! She told me last night that Paris is her dream. Dream away, baby girl!
