I’ve been working hard on the kids rooms and I think I am finally ready to show you Charise’s! I still have some details to finish up and I still need to add a few little “surprises.” But all in all, it is finished. I had the same policy with the kids rooms as I had with the guest room. I didn’t want to buy anything for these rooms - - only use things that I had.
Here’s what I came up with for one of Charise’s walls.
I had this picture hanging in our guestroom before I re-did it. I knew I was not going to use this picture again – I’ve had it in three houses already - - it had served it’s purpose, but my style has moved on.
So I took the picture, matting and glass out of the frame…
I made sure that all the staples were removed, then gave it a coat of turquoise spray paint - - I used lot’s of this wonderful spray paint in her room!!
Next, I took a set of vinyl frames I had picked up months ago on clearance at TJ Maxx and put them on the wall inside the frame.
I let Charise pick out four of her favorite pictures and put those in the frames.
Did you notice that I just used straight pins to hold the pictures to the wall?
I also had some leftover vinyl birds from another project in her room, so I perched one of them on a frame.
A little sneak peek of the new picture frame on the wall! Notice more of that turquoise spray paint? I also gave her pink chandelier a coat of paint.
Now, for a second super quick super easy project. We had these three hooks in her room before the re-do, but they were always falling off the wall and every time they moved, they left a black mark on the wall – not cool when you rent! So, I took a board that we had in the garage. It just happened to be this size, I didn’t cut it down or anything. I gave it a coat of paint too - - then, with my white paint pen, I added a little white line detail. I put screws in to keep the hooks on the board and voila! I hung it on the wall, then added another one of the vinyl birds above the hooks.
Total money spent: $0
Creativity Used: just a little :)
