Posh Purple Bedroom Makeover


We wanted to give our college-age daughter a special space to hang when she's home...so we did a "while you were out" secret makeover on her bedroom while she was away at school last fall.

Here's what we started with...just a crowded mess of high school and dance memorabilia without much true personality.

Stripes are fun to paint...yeah right. I'm glad I had only planned on ONE!

This cream and gold lamp was a perfect match to the room's vibe...and make sure you check out the chandelier! That was Sara's favorite part, I think. She was thrilled.

    I wish I had an adult room (54yrs old). I love it and it was so sweetof you to do that so she can know that she will always be welcomed. If I touched one of my boys rooms I think they would be devastated. I have 3 guys. I just so want to get in there and rearrange furniture and clean out closets. One thinks that beer bottles is attractive? Man cave in his future. It's funny cause your daughter has grown up, guys take so long I'm still waiting. Ages 22,28. The middle one did do his room over and it's cool. Totally hippie. Now off to Marine life but expects me to leave room untouched. I'm going to make it a guest room with 2 full size beds. And just have fun. I'll reuse some of his things but not many. Thanks for sharing your love for your daughter with us.
