This room was quite unique-we had never redone a room quite like this.
I thought you would be.
This space was off her garage-once used as a storage room-now changed to a
mini bed and breakfast for her kids when they come home to visit.
We loved the concept and this was a new challenge for us.
We were very excited to take it on.
We went shopping at our favorite thrift store.
Now, I know that this in not always the first store that designers visit.
But for us-it's the first stop!
We found everything we needed for this entire space at the thrift store!!
(except for curtains-those were a wal-mart purchase)
Pillows, throw, lamp, dishes, styrofoam balls, old kitchen utensils, you name it-we got it there! I even found a great picture for only $15 bucks!
So..do you want to see it?
I am even excited to look at the pictures after THAT introduction.
Dang, I am good at making you all curious!
(I will just pretend that all of you are shaking your heads in agreement:)
Ok-here are the before and afters. Warning..there are a lot of pics to follow!
First-she purchased the furniture pieces and the rugs.
She had this fantastic garage that had all kinds of treasures.
The old cool cars were awesome, but the old, chippy doors are what made my heart beat faster!
This is the little kitchenette spot in the room. Really simple, a sink, some cupboards and a bar. Just a place to eat snacks and brush your teeth.
We set the bar with some dishes and these wicked cool wicker placemats.
(which were turquoise in a previous life)
It was an old painting-but the colors happened to match the rugs exacatly. They love old stuff so this painting fit the bill.
Pretty sure I must have been living right the day we were shopping!
We scored everything we needed in the right colors.
See this chest? Isn't it great? Only problem-the lid was broken so it didn't sit flat and the top was curved-picture a treasure chest.
The finished project. The curtains we used came in a pack with 2 cafe curtains. We used those to hide the wood. Seriously-worked perfect!
Whew! That was a lot of pictures! Hold crap!
I hope you enjoyed the makeover!
We loved it and most importantly so did our client!
PS-I am never going to use a curtain rod again!
Upholstry tacks-I think I love you!
