Good Enough room makeover!

Isn't this vintage headboard lamp the cutest? I got it at a consignment shop for about $9.00 and it works great! I put it on my oldest's headboard of her new craigslist bed that I got for $30.00. The bed was the 80's color brown (I'll find a pic tomorrow of it before I painted it white). I think she will like it.

Before she left on her spring break trip, her only request for her room was something sophisticated. She saw ruffles and lace dancing in my head and stopped me cold right there. She is 15 and wanted something grown up. I found the new vanity mirror at Goodwill that I painted white. The matchstick blinds were at Lowes on clearance for 11.50 for both sets!

Here's another corner. I will have more before pics tomorrow. I painted this cabinet white. It was in her room before just wood color. My hubby gave it to me our first Christmas we were married almost 19 years ago! The color of the walls looks a little different on the pictures. I need a better camera. It's hard to capture at night too.

I just touched up the white desk and moved this end table in from another room. The cute glittery lamp was hers before too. All the bedding was there before except the "M" pillow that I just threw together. Be very afraid if messiness makes you crazy. Here is the before picture.

Yikes! She had a old day bed before that was on it's last leg. She was over the pink and wanted something else. She comes back in town Sunday from her trip. Do you think she will be happy? I hope so! Have a great day and hopefully some other before and after pics tomorrow.

Thanks everyone. I wish I could capture the color better but my camera and the lighting isn't cooperating. It was an oops paint at Walmart! Thanks for all your kind comments.
