Cami's Room Reveal

Here is Cami's room reveal.

I'm still working on a few things, but summer has put a hold on those projects for now.
Here is the (almost) finished room.


 The before
Cami wanted a more grown up room.  She's going into sixth grade.

In this picture you can see the plastic Ikea chair that was pink when I bought it, then I painted blue like it is here.  You will see it in later pictures painted white.  I just primed it with plastic primer and painted it with regular white spray paint. It holds up great.   


Her old room was cluttered and not functional.


The in between
(Cami lived in our living room while I redid her room)
To see what the living room/office looks like now go here.
Doing things by yourself on a budget involves some sacrifice. She lived like this for three weeks. I painted the concrete floors in her room and they needed time to cure.


The After


Spray painted horses.




I would like to make a padded head board, but that will need to wait for a while.  The old bed is working out for now.





I made the chandelier from a light fixture I picked up at H4H and two metal hanging baskets from Lowe's.

This project was a labor of love.   My most important critic, Cami, loves her new room!  She's proud to show her friends her room and now spends hours in it drawing and reading. 
Can't think of a better seal of approval then that?

Now Casey is ready for me to re do her room.
More fun to follow.

To see how I did all the projects in Cami's room go here.

Thanks for Checking It Out.

  28. This room is sooo pretty. The orange pillow from my giveaway would be PERFECT!

    Make sure you leave a comment saying "I follow your blog" (right now you have your choice of pillow listed as one entry, but in the same comment told me you're following. Since the winner is picked by random # generator and each comment gets a #, you will double your chances of winning by entering it again as a separate comment. Make sense? I feel like I am rambling, but hopefully you understood. I am sleep deprived as my baby boy is sick for the first time, boo). You can get another entry by going to Misty's blog and following her too.

    THIS ROOM IS AMAZING!!!!!!!
