Kylee's Glam Bedroom

My dear little Kylee is now 13!! I cannot believe it! She is officially a teenager! Happy Birthday Kylee! Now make a wish...
What did you wish for? Kylee's wish this year was for her room to be changed from the blue stripe and polka dot room into a real teenage GLAM room! So here are a few befores....I did love the blue and brown stripes - plus they took me like a whole freaking day to paint! :)

Her little partial wall with the circles and mirrors where her vanity sat and she could get ready!
We decided to keep the daybed - but we did not want to keep the cream color of it! But here is the before of the pieces of the bed (I get so excited to start that I always forget complete before pics!) You can also see in this picture, the lovely blue carpet that goes out into the hallway...not very glamorous!
And to complete the blue theme, here is the lovely, came with the house, blue blinds! So 1980's huh!!
Here is some of the shelves and such that I took out of her bedroom. Some of the shelves I had painted brown to match her room before - so those will need to change...the light pink lamp will not fit the new style, that cream colored basket is a little shabby and the bronze colored snail will just not do as is!

Here are a few more befores...her letters that were hanging on cute little ribbons in her room - brown and pink of course -and an old oak colored picture frame!

OK, enough of the befores...let's get to the AFTERS!! Here are her new hot pink glamorous walls with her lovely silver daybed and new bedding!
She loves these french memo boards - the rectangular one was a light pink little girly print - so that had to be changed - and one of her grandma's found the new round one!
You can see her new carpet in this picture...SO MUCH BETTER!! No more blue!! And her circle wall is changed to a teenage girl's getting ready station. I put up the little holders below the long mirror that hold her brush, make-up, deodorant, etc.

Yeah, this pic is sideways, sorry....but here you can see the little hand painted scrolls that I did and I added some jewels to make it sparkle!

Here is what I did with that old frame and her letters. I spray painted the letters silver, the frame black and attached a cute little ribbon. Below it is a silver metal push pin board, which I turned into her jewelry holder, just adding the same ribbon.

I also added a little jewel to the screw that hung them up on the wall - who wants to see the screw sticking out? That is NOT glamorous!

I spray painted her little brown shelves to black and her bronze snail to silver. You can see the blue blinds are gone...I do have some white drapes to hang up, they just have not made it up quite yet...

We made a cute little work/craft corner for her on this wall. A black corner desk with a black shelving unit beside it give her a lot of storage on this wall and we organized her craft stuff with this cute striped boxes from IKEA. It is perfect - now all of her scrapbook stuff is in one box, all her jewelry making stuff in another, etc, etc.!

Her cute little light pink lamp - now a fierce silver with embellishments sits perfectly in the corner! And the new large magnet board (which still needs to be hung up by my hubby) is perfect for holding her pens, pencils, scissors, and those little round magnetic cups are ideal for her small embellishments like flowers and sequins for her scrapbooking!

We also changed out her clothes closet - that used to only have one bar across - into a double rod closet! So much more room! She has a whole other closet across from this one for her games and other shelf belonging stuff!

And of course NO glam room is finished until the chandelier is hung! I love this chandelier from IKEA!

I hope you enjoyed it! I know Kylee does!!

Halloween Wreath

First, start with a wreath and some cheap flowers from the Dollar Store... Next hot glue the flowers to the wreath - try not to burn your finger like I did!

Get them all glued on...

Add some webs, some cute ribbon, and some skulls from the Dollar Store and whallah - a great spooky Halloween wreath!

No Fly Zone

I took the day off of work yesterday because today was my birthday and I wanted a day off! Plus I needed to register my car and get my license renewed before today! :)

Anyway, I took some time out to do a couple of crafts! So much fun! Here is the first one!

I picked up a little rafia broom from the good old Dollar Tree and after spray painting it black, adding some fun ribbon to it and painting a little sign, this is the end result! I love the way it turned out!

French Memo Board

So I still have not had the motivation needed to do the rest of my daughter's bedroom - but it will be done this weekend!! :) I did, however get a chance to re-do her french memo board. She loves this thing and always has pictures inserted into it! It was not jiving with the new paint and decor, so when I was at good old Walmart the other day, I seen some marked down left over fabrics - and I got enough to do 2 memo boards of black fabric for about a dollar! So I picked up some cute pink ribbon and some new buttons too and went to re-making the memo board!

So here is the before...

And here is the after! I love how it turned out and it matches PERFECTLY!

Lovely Little Lamp

For my daughter's birthday, we revamped her room up and in doing that revamped some of her furniture and accessories! I will post a lot of them later, but here is my favorite!! Sorry for the pics - I took the before pic among a big pile of before stuff - so here is the cropped version of the lamp! Cute little pink lamp with a white shade...however my daughter's room was a hot pink glam room with black and silver spray painted the base an aluminum metallic shade of silver - LOVE THAT COLOR!!! And added some cute trim of black satin and dangly beads! I love the way it turned out and since I already had the lamp and the can of spray paint, the beads were like $3.00 - so a lamp transformation on the CHEAP!! And this was one of Kylee's favorites in the room too!!
