We busted our rears to finish this Moroccan stencil bedroom makeover in just 5 days the first week of June…and then didn’t post the pics for three months. Oops. I guess we needed to wait until real life slowed down and we got into the groove of our kids getting back into their school schedules. This was a CRAZY project. We are really active in our church and know how vital it is for youth these days to be uplifted. Our church sends the 12-18 year old girls to Girls Camp every summer for a few days. Lots of laughter and bonding and spiritual growth. They need to raise $50/girl to help with cost so our church does a fundraiser. We offered a room makeover for the live auction…and raised over $1000! Whoop!! So here is the product of that money, happy that so many girls were able to benefit from our hard work!
Check out the before colors…chocolate, pink, bubblegum, lime…makes me want a sherbet ice cream (; Miss L was ready for a more grown up space. She perused our girl bedroom ideas and sent us some pins she liked for our inspiration.
We are obsessed with this perfect gray paint, it’s the best shade of gray we’ve found!! It’s called “Timberwolf” by Dutch Boy although we had Home Depot mix it for us this time around. We also used it in my oldest daughter’s tween bedroom AND my 5 year old’s bedroom. (Which I started 8 months ago and haven’t finished… yikes).
We told Miss L she needed an accent wall because her 15′ walls…YES, 15 FEET, people!!! were so big that it’d make a great statement! She chose Cutting Edge Stencil’s rockin’ Moroccan. Okay, it’s not called Rockin’ but it SHOULD be cuz it rocks. I got the stencil started for this cute 14 year old and away she went!!
I put a good 6 hours into it when she took over…I think it took about 4 more hours + touch-ups to complete. Tedious? Yes. Worth it? Most definitely. It’s so pretty!!
Doesn’t it look fabulous with her mint + coral accessories?? We made that tufted head board. *shoulder pat* First, and last, one! It took forever.
Miss L kept saying she wanted simple, simple, simple. So we added a quick diy bulletin board from an old frame, a cute lamp + utensil turned pencil holder, repainted a pretty desk + upholstered/painted a thrifted chair.
You HAVE to see the before pic of this armoire!! It was acutally a tv armoire…post to come.
