Kristina's bedroom makeover.
While we were visiting our daughter Kim last Christmas, we did a little decorating, here, here, here, here and here. Our biggest project was painting a set of bedroom furniture that we brought with us in our van. It was for our teenage granddaughter, Kristina. She had already chosen the bedding and drapery panels, so I decided to paint the furniture black. Black Suede by Behr. This set has seen many family bedrooms; first it was my in-laws guest bedroom set,
before: The end table went from this above.
after: to this.
before: The pink lamps went from this.
after: to this.
I painted the lamp bases black. I used a wide black Sharpie pen to paint over
the pink velvet ribbon trim that's at the top and bottom of the shade.
before: The large dresser and mirror.
It's a solid wood furniture with clean classic lines that was worth painting.
This gave her lots of drawer space.
We removed the drawers to paint. It took three coats of black paint.
The mirror attaches to the back of the dresser.
She now has tons of space for her tons of stuff.
We found a matching zebra shaded lamp at Marshalls.
It matches her bedding and drapery panels.
There are two big drawers in each of the end tables.
We made the headboard with a large piece of MDF, added molding, painted it black and
attached it the the wall using a French cleat method.
after! This is some of what we did on our Christmas vacation !
