Girls Bedroom Makeover

November 20, 2015
Hey Guys!
We’re sharing one of our all time Favorite makeovers of the farmhouse!
Once upon a time,
a hardworking farmer needed a home to house his many children.  Nine to be exact.
He found a quaint farmhouse that had a date with a wrecking ball,
he stepped in to save it.
He had the house moved to his farm where it became a home for raising those nine children, alongside his wife
and lots and lots of cows.
 We, the Fancy Farmgirls,
 were the middle children, in that bundle of kids.
“Middle child syndrome” isn’t as rough when you’ve got a twin sister to go through it with you.:)
We loved our home, but never quite imagined that one of us would call it “home” again.
That’s another story for another day,
but 5 years ago, Liz moved her family back into the farmhouse.
and yes,
there are still parts of the home that look like they are STILL destined for a date with the wrecking ball:)

This room with its peeling plaster ceiling and paint splattered floors
quickly became the catch all “storage room”DSC_0347It slowly evolved into a girls room/catchall storage room.
It’s enough to make a girl feel like throwing up her arms in defeat,
but, instead,
Liz threw on the paint!
A cheerful girls bedroom using ONLY second hand furniture.
First order of business,
color and personality for the walls!
wall color: Sherwin Williams Windowpane 6210
add on gold wall vinyl dots and you’ve got
fun, quick personality! You can order Polk a Dots Here
This rug was the jumping off point for the rest of the room
DSC_0251And this color combo was our inspiration.
And remember, all furniture is second hand.
They just needed a makeover to bring them all together.
I’ve had this garage sale find dresser for years and all though it’s not overly obnoxious,DSC_0178
The flower stencil wasn’t me and the previous owner had changed out the hardware with pulls that didn’t fit. DSC_0184
To stick with our gold theme,
these pulls got a spray paint makeover and the dresser, a fresh coat of paint.DSC_0240
Dresser  After
The art piece for over the dresser is hand painted  by using various shades of our dresser color
 We adorned plain pillows and lampshades with coordinating pom poms.
Can a girl have too many pom poms?
We think not!
I think the local resident agrees!
I just might move in and be her roomie!
Most of these furnishings have gone through multiple
makeovers in order to fit in with new rooms, new looks and changing tastes.
There’s no need to feel like a new makeover requires new furnishings.
Just new paint!

Dresser color:  Valspars Fuzzy Peach (mixed 1/2. The guy at the paint counter will know what this means 🙂 )
