Little girls bedroom makeover - before and after...

Before - same corner of the room


After - Same angle as above

Room Details:

We have filled holes and cracks, painted ceiling and walls white and the wardrobe and window a semi gloss white. Removed the double curtains and replaced them with white block out roller blinds, the floors have been sanded and finished in a water based satin finish, The timber floors have turned out beautifully. Installed a new pendant light, wardrobe fixtures and a new door stop.

Due to all the hard work getting the walls all blemish free at the moment we are very reluctant to hang anything up on them and therefor having to put holes back in them. So for now, our walls have that minimalist look, which we are liking, but I am sure in a few years we may be ready to hang a few things up on the walls.

The only pics I had to use as the before photos are what I took during the building and pest inspection. It's a bit hard to compare different peoples furnishings, but it is a good example of how a room can be decluttered to make it look bigger and window treatments changed to make a room look brighter.

All furniture I have used is all reused from what I already owned. All of it is vintage hand me downs, lucky kerbside finds and op shop purchases, I painted a few of the items mint green, including the bedhead. The only new purchases are the Sheridan bedspread and the $5 kmart cloud pillow and the Flamingo pillow from Freedom.

My daughter is loving her room, It goes from spotlessly clean to extremely messy in a matter of minutes!

PS.. Sorry the photos are poor quality, they were taken on my phone, which is packing it in.
