I’ve been posting over the past 2 months the projects that have been bits and pieces of Kate’s new bedroom. This has been a fun project for us to do together. Kate gathered all the new bedroom ideas herself and then funneled her final decisions to me.
So, a mere 2 months after we started, I think we are just about done with her bedroom.
Before we get to the good stuff, let’s look back at where we started. It wasn’t awful, but it always felt a little mish mash…like there wasn’t a cohesive plan. The color was chosen when Kate was in 6th grade aka ‘middle school’. She was ready for a new color and a more mature-feeling room.
I neglected to get a photo of her bulletin board before we took the frame off of it. This bulletin board ‘system’ was purchased from Pottery Barn Teen, 7 years ago.
It’s a great bulletin board system, allowing you to customize how many chalkboard panels, cork panels or magnet panels you want and what colors. She chose the colors to coordinate with her color scheme at the time, which is going to change a bit now.
For what it’s worth, I’m not sure if it was because of the high humidity when we did our spray painting, but the Valspar kind of bubbled on the desk.
We ended up sanding those spots and spray painting them with a primer and then re-coating them with the Valspar lacquer. We didn’t have any problems on the iron bed.
