Amy turns 13 in just under a month and we figured it was time to update her little girl room. It became a great project for Kevin and Amy to work on together, with decorating input from me.
Step 1 – Get new furniture from IKEA….
Step 2 – somehow fit it all into a prius….
Luckily we didn’t have Christy with us :-)….
Step 3… choose a paint colour….
and start painting….
Step 4…. cart furniture upstairs and start assembling….
modifying current equipment where appropriate….
Step 5…. put up shelves…..
Step 6….. decorate….
This cute black couch is actually a sofa bed for when friends sleep over.
I LOVE it all, but this desk is just a dream…..
And her new bedding (which was the first thing we bought) is fabulous. It’s double sided with stripes on the back, which I think will make a nice change for Winter. It’s a silver colour with purple and pink flowers…
So what do you think? Here’s before…
I might be a long way from being a teenager but I could be totally happy in this room. It’s also got the best view in the house!
