I'm so excited that my application for a craft fair that I entered, was excepted! Yay! This is my first craft fair. We will be busy getting ready for it, so the next couple of days will be a little bit hectic. I hope my pallet wood signs, chalkboard signs, and my name art sell!
As I said in my last post, we decorated my sisters room. We kind of did a little rearranging, since we finished our basement. Everything in this room, was collected little by little from garage sales, and Craigslist (except for the rug, which was purchased at Target).
These paper lanterns were the inspiration to the colors of the room. We found them at a garage sale for 25 cents, as well as the LOVE sign for 50 cents. The original plan was to have the room decorated in the bright colors on the lantern, but then my mom bought the comforter and the plans changed. The lanterns still look great in the corner.The LOVE sign was previously brown with wooden bear faces glued on. We pried them off, sanded the sign down, and painted it pink. Then with a darker, watered down pink, we splattered dots with an old fly swatter.
|The canvases above the bed were bought at a garage sale as well. The colors on the cavases didn't match the room, so we painted new designs with the colors that we liked. The Love sign was found at a garage sale, and fitted in perfectly.|
|The window frame was bought at a garage sale for $5. We left it it's original color because it matched perfectly in the room.|
|The J was an ugly sliver-y color, so we spray painted it white, and then mod podged paint chip blocks to it. So little, can do so much!|
|My mom re-did this bookshelf with a pallet wood back and top. Here's a link if you would like to see a tutorial.|
|So, here's the finished effect! Most of the art in Julia's room was handmade which made the whole thing more personalized. We spent a lot of time getting ideas on Pinterest and Google, amd that helped. You really can do a lot of things yourself with some inspiration and a few supplies.|
Note if you want to see how we've changed the room a year later check it out here. You can also see other girl's rooms we've done here, and here.
