Tween Room Reveal

I can finally remove the tween room redo from my projects under construction list! Woohoo! If you missed the before pictures go here. And now for the big reveal using Mr. Right's wide angle lens...The quote above the window reads, "In A World Where You Can Be Anything... Be Yourself"
Notice the closet doors are closed? Remember the before pics? All those "accessories" are lurking in there.
The jewelry box would look stunning in black, however the hardward is screwed in and then covered up with pink velvet inside the drawers. Too much taping, so it's being left "As Is".
We were able to complete the entire make-over for less than $300. Most of the expense came from the new sheets and pillows. Here's some of the accent pieces we picked up at yard sales.
This set of three chunky wood candlesticks were $5.00
The iron dress form was $10.00
This little clock received a coat of black spray paint and it was just $4.00
The B was picked up at a yard sale for $1.00 and then covered in antique sheet music. The lamp and shade were actually purchased at different yard sales for 2.00 and 1.00 but they look great together. My tween loves her new room and that makes all the projects worth it. Let us know what you're favorite part is, we'd love to hear what you think. Love, Kelly.

If you missed all the tween room projects follow these links:


  1. My favorite is the highboy dresser re-do.
    That bed and dresser are beautiful, I guess I'm just in shock that you didn't paint them too. I think they'd look awesome in white and distressed to match the room. And I feel like there should be a rug or something anchoring the room. But really...I do love all you did.
    Thanks for sharing. me your craigslist sales. hahaha

  2. Very cute. Love the chandelier and bedding ~ looks great :)

  3. Awesome! I love the wood furniture!

  4. love the chadelier, love the quote... also love the inexpensive yard sale finds! great job! :)

  5. This turned out beautiful and inspiring! Especially since you did it for under $300. I love your eye for design and thrift.

  6. It looks terrific and the prices you paid were amazing! I also thought the room needed a rug - but I forget you live in Arizona and maybe that's the last thing you want! How fun to re do a room without being sick over how much was spent! Great job!

  7. It's hard to pick a favorite! I love the sheet music touches. I wouldn't ave thought of that!

    I have to say needs a rug. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :). Rugs are tricky though - if you need a big one it can be so hard to get a bargain!

  8. What's up with all you rug people? I do agree a rug would be great, but I'm a bit of a clean freak and can't stand the idea of a rug that can get stained, etc. And I have horrible allergies- Do I sound like I'm whining? Thanks for all the suggestions.

  9. Have to agree with the "rug people" on this one! Would totally complete the room!

  10. Have to say for $300?!?!? AMAZING! Rugs are spendy. And it is hard to find a clean cute rug for a good price. And with allergies, it is so nice to know your wood floors are CLEAN! LOVE IT!

  11. SO not a rug person. I love looking at it and seeing clean! Great job by the way it looks wonderful!

  12. I think it looks fabulous! Lucky girl!

  13. My fav is still the wall! Now I want to do that in my house somewhere. I did so love that original vanity, but the functuanailty of the chest is understandable. I love the clean look, though I am sure with a tween it may not stay like that for long. I'm not too much of a rug person either. But we live in Vegas and there's just too much dirt/sand, I got rid of my living room rug for that reason.

  14. Kelly your blog is amazing as always! This is a FANTASTIC project. Great job! I would be delighted if you would link this to my VIP party today!


  15. Thanks so much for linking up to the VIP party @ Designer Garden! Hope to see you again next week with another great project!
