Spray paint. Estate sale items. Thrifted items. Recycled Items. And more spray paint. That sums up Kylie’s room! When we moved into our new house and dreamed up Kylie’s room I think she had her heart set on huge wall stickers of Snow White. Yikes. Kylie loves Snow White so of course she told me she wanted a Snow White room. Instead of going crazy we compromised with Snow White colors and undertones. Swirlies, birds, red, blue, and yellow.
So here’s the boring-beige-before-photos:
And here’s the after:
I just love it. If you want to make a window cornice or window valance for less than $20 without any power tools you can get the details on the $20 Window Cornice tutorial here. I kept the same $4 ikea sheer curtains but I did trim them up. They’re 96″ to begin with and were just way way too long for this room.
I loved that we found a bible verse that fit the snow white theme; “Though our sins are scarlet you have made us white as snow.” And check out that silly phone. I found that at a church rummage sale for $1 and thought the girls might get a kick out of it…oh they LUUUUUUUHHHHHVVVVVVE IT.
The nightstand was an $8 church rummage sale find too. Here’s what it looked like before:
Kylie was quite thrilled! A little bit of spray paint and it was snow white approved:
The basket colors don’t match the theme but I found all but 2 of them for $2 total in a clearance bin at Michael’s so I wasn’t going to turn that down.
The mirror wall turned out pretty fun on accident. My friend Sara found the main gold Snow White mirror at an estate sale for $18 so I begged her to purchase it for me and paid her back the next day. It was a total win.
The little white mirror Kylie picked out at Salvation Army for $5. We tried spray painting it gold first but it just clashed with the other gold mirror so we tried white next and were happy with it. You can see the clash of the golds here:
White was a much better choice I think. The other mirror was one we had in our basement from hobby lobby like 8 years ago.
The art display is finally getting used. I’m sure once school starts next week it will be full of art. You can get the details on how to make the $10 kid art display here. The gold bird display was an awesome score from the Michael’s clearance bin as well. It was only $2 but it was pink and we were trying to get away from pinks so we just took the bird part off and spray painted it gold and attached the bird again. Here was the bird cage before:
The little yellow and turquoise jar was from Hobby lobby clearance for $1 and the yellow and green tray was from a flower arrangement my mom sent me a few years ago when we lived far apart. It won’t be long before Kylie has it filled with jewelry I’m sure. On the other side of her bed is her desk area. Kylie really wanted a desk area-I’m so thrilled to have this ready before school starts.
I think the desk is ok but she really really loved it. It was in pretty decent shape when we found it at Salvation Army (See below) It was only $20 too. You can see a pink and black one in the background that Presley was drooling over for her room. I think we’ll only have to touch up the black paint on it. Score. You can check out Presley’s room here.
The chalkboard above her desk was from our basement stash as well. The stool is a cheap $7 one from ikea.
This lamp used to be in Michael’s office and then in my office and since it was red I thought we could use it in Kylie’s room so we didn’t have to buy a new one. The little heart chalkboard was another hobby lobby clearance aisle score for $2. The picture frames by her bed were all ones we had in the basement so we slapped some red spray paint on them. Here’s what they looked like before:
We framed a page from a Snow White book I found at a thrift store in one and framed a picture of her and Presley in the other.
The letter B was from hobby lobby and we’ve had it a few years. It used to be black with light pink flowers. I just took off the flowers and swirls and spray painted them different colors before reassembling. B is the first letter of her first name she just goes by her middle name.
Instead of getting new bedding we bought a duvet cover from H&M for $20. (Did you guys know they have a home decor line online?!?!)
Her headboard and footboard we scored on craigslist over a year ago for $50. Check out the clawfeet. It is every girly-girl’s dream.
Let’s take a look at the before again:
