I started putting together the twins’ bedroom at the last house, but never really got finished before we put our house on the market. So, I’m more or less picking up where I left off, changing things up just slightly.
My plan had been to reuse these (already recycled once) upholstered headboards. . . . until, I found a pair of perfect poster beds at a moving sale in our neighborhood for $35 each! A great deal can change my design plan in a heartbeat.
The beds I found are very similar to the yellow ones above. I had every intention of bringing them home and painting them. Then, rethought my whole plan for the room and decided to leave them in their original finish and bring in color with paint and accessories, instead. (I really like the way the natural finish looks with the dark green walls, and I don’t have to paint two beds. Win-win!)
I don’t necessarily want the room to look too girly or too boyish, so I’m using a semi-neutral bedding mix (well, if you don’t look at the floral pillows!). Between their books and toys and tutus and Spiderman costumes, the room will look like two three-year-olds live there soon enough!
Chevron quilts—I’m introducing a new color into the mix with the light blue. And, I love easy-to-wash quilts for kids’ beds. . .
Floral pillows—I’ve used these pillows all around our house. Great colors to design around!
Yellow bed skirts and pillow shams—This small print works great with larger pillow pattern.
Paint Color—This is one of my all-time favorite greens, and I just had to reuse it in this house.
And, I’m reusing the art I framed from this book, too. It’s now just $18 and is full of beautiful animal art prints. It’s seriously one of my favorite illustrated books ever (if you need a gift idea or something to frame). I put them in my favorite plastic frames that I spray painted dark orange.
Walls are painted, bedding is here, and frames are hung. Will be finished with this one soon. . .
