The blue room

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of clearing out a teenager's bedroom, sorting through stuff, having decorating done, purchasing some new itesm and then putting it all back.  Added to that we wanted to surprise her when she came back from her school trip last night.  She had seen the room all painted but when she went Friday morning it had nothing but a bed and a wardroom in it!

So here are the before photos....although these were half way through clearing it out!...



And here is the new room; The desk where the wardrobe used to be (the "dream" was purchased at a craft event on Friday and is a half term project for her to alter)...


Nice new bedding (and a half price bargain in the Debenhams' sale!)  We have still to put some shelves back on the wall above but they need painting first...

The wardrobe where the tall book shelf was and a new blind...

She also has this light fitting...

And this photo frame still to go up when we have filled it with her photos...


Even though she got back at 11pm last night it was fair to say she was very excited by it all!  Luckily we have half term next week so can spend the week putting back all her "junk" and filling the shelves again!

It looks fabulous, thank you for sharing. I love seeing decorating projects. I'm not surprised she was over the moon
