Renovation Of The Girls’ Bedroom – Before & Afters

I didn’t want to post this yet cause I still had a few more details to add, but it looks like it will still be a little while before its 100% complete.
They are getting new bedding and some organization items for headbands and necklaces for Christmas, and I still need to make a valence for the window πŸ™‚
Here is what their room looked like before!
(I took these pictures after I had already started pulling stuff out, so excuse the mess!)
All of the pictures start from the door and go to the left in a full circle πŸ™‚
I hated having a dresser in the closet and we and still barely had room in the dressers even though there’s two! (My girls wear uniforms to school and on top of that they have a very large wardrobe…
Not spoiled at all ;p)
I painted the walls, all the furniture (kill me), changed the knobs on the dressers and painted and hung a few things on the walls.
These floating shelves are from Target. Love them, and they were super easy to hang!
In this dresser the girls both have their own ‘junk drawer’, the little middle drawer houses undies, and then the rest (Cambria’s on the left, Gwen’s on the right) are school uniform bottoms in the top, pants, jeans and shorts in the next and all of their skirts in the bottom.
These are the knobs I chose for the dressers!
So cute! I found them on Amazon πŸ™‚
I had plans to paint and hang that chandelier there on the floor, but decided they really need the fan in there. Instead I’d like to get a cute, girly lamp to put on the dresser.
This dresser has all of Cambria’s bathing suites, gymnastic wear and tights that only fit her, in the top drawer. The second one has Gwen’s bathing suits (she has lots cause she’s in swim lessons)
and her tights that only fit her,Β and the bottom drawer is all their leggings,
shorts for under school dresses and under shirts.
That kitty picture in the corner is now hanging on the wall πŸ˜‰
And my favorite part!
I had this shelf sitting somewhere else in the house not being used, and my amazing dad installed it with an extra rail exactly how I wanted it πŸ™‚
Cambria’s clothes are on the left, Gwen’s on the right, tops hang on the top rails
and dresses on the bottom rails.
Those bins are holding (from top left to right, not counting the owls cause those were just temporary), hair items, T-shirts, Cambria’s PJ’s, Gwen’s PJ’s, Cambria’s socks and Gwen’s socks.
We’ve been using this system for a while now and its working PERFECT!
Β I got this mirror at Target and hung it so that they can see their full body from across the room πŸ™‚
I love it so much and can’t wait for it to be completed!
I’ll post another update when it’s done πŸ™‚
Thanks for looking!

Girls’/Guest Bathroom Reveal!

So excited to be sharing this!
It came out better than I even imagined! πŸ™‚
I don’t have very many pictures, but this is what the bathroom looked like before.
We peeled of two layers of wallpaper and painted the walls a VERY light gray, pulled up two layers of linoleum and put down tile, changed the countertop to granite,
replaced the toilet and modified the cabinet!
My dad and mom did MOST of the work, but the vision is all mine πŸ™‚
What it looks like now!!
This beautiful shower curtain came from World Market.
I was so excited when I found these at Kirklands!
The color is perfect and this IS a kids bathroom πŸ™‚
New toilet!
And being the cat lovers that we are, I had to have the kitty toilet brush holder that I
found at Bed, Bath and Beyond πŸ˜‰
This frame came from Ikea, and the image I bought from HEREΒ to give the feeling
of this being a little girls bathroom πŸ™‚

The granite counter! πŸ˜€
I found this mirror at Garden Ridge, the faucet came from eBay, the pictures on the wall came from a thrift store, the towel hooks and toilet paper holder from Bed, Bath and Beyond and the towels came from Target.

The rug down there also came from Target.
Beautiful, isn’t it! I love it so much!
Thanks for looking!

Bathroom Update #2

I’m a little late on this so the reveal is coming really soon,Β 
but I just wanted to give a little sneak peek before I share the whole thing πŸ˜‰
Here’s the tiled floor all finished.Β Came out awesome!
We bought the square tiles from Habitat for Humanity for $20!
Cory’s dad gave us the glass ones πŸ™‚
I painted the cabinet blue, and my dad got the plywood in.
Ready for the countertop!
The new granite countertop and faucet is in!
Gravy is testing out his new bed πŸ˜‰
( Kitty had an eye infection 😦 )
Aaaand a little sneak at a few other things that will be going into the bathroom πŸ™‚
Can’t wait to share the reveal!

Bathroom Update #1

I got inspired by this bathroom I saw atΒ IHeartOrganizing

I fell in love with the dark blue in this room and the shower curtain she has,
so I went out and got it myself!
The changes we’re making to our bathroom are:
The vanity to a granite top and inset sink.
Floors from two layers of linoleum to tiles.
Walls from two layers of wallpaper to paint.
Replacing medicine cabinet with a pretty mirror.
Β Changing light fixtures.
Putting in a new toilet.
Painting the cabinet and all the trim/doors.
Lots of reorganizing!
Here’s what we have done so far!

Stripped all the wallpaper

Took the medicine cabinet out and the top “drawers” on the cabinet.
My dad is going to cut that opening higher and put larger doors on it πŸ™‚
And me dad started laying the tiles last night!
Pretty isn’t it!?
I can’t wait for the tile to get finished tonight when he gets home from work!
