Perfect gifts

The room is done...and it is so fun.  (Paige begged for the scripture over her bed...i love that girl.)  Yellow walls with splashes of hot pink and lots of brown accents.  It is soooo pretty...and she totally deserves it! 

A nice free lamp that i added hot pink embellishment to the shade (i learned that from Meg).  Super fun!  The mirror in the background...it is crackled...the first faux job Paige ever did and it is soooo fabulous!  Screaming MEME would be so proud!

Fun place to keep pics and stuff.  (Just cork board covered in fabric.)

And, for the contacts...yes, this is just for the contacts!  (Hobby Lobby...$3)

Super fab curtains (two panels for $9 at World Market)

And, every lady needs to keep her jewelry close at hand...so 50%off Hobby Lobby iron hook/hanger...I think it's suppose to be for keys.

And a pic frame collage for the wall.  She also picked out the cross on the wall next to the door. Strategically placed so she will be reminded of her faith every time she leaves the room.  (can she be real? thank you for her strength and faith.)

So, my Paige's room (she is my perfect gift, btw), paint and accessories for less than $50.  New Roxy bedspread was the big ticket item...but used the $20 off card from BBB!  All in all, the whole room was redone for $150.  Not bad!

Oh, and I've had that picture board in my head for a while now, too. I found this amazing fabric at a shop close to where I live that matches with my Monkey's room to a T.
Glad to see I'm not the only one!

Michelle said...

wow what a great room makeover that didn't cost and arm and a leg! It looks great and I love the scripture she chose. She's beautiful inside and out!

Kathleen said...

That's a beautiful room...the two of you have great taste. It's such a classy color scheme, not at all what most teenagers would pick. I'm sure it'll last beyond the teenage years.
