Pre teens room reveal~Anthropologie appeal

I am FINALLY sharing Sami's room reveal with you. There is still more to do like throw pillows, wall hangings, and accents, but those will come in time. At least you can get an idea of where we are going with this room.

Thank goodness Sami loves Anthopologie as much as I do. So, we agreed to go for that look but on a budget. In reality, the only things actually in the room from Anthro are the knobs on her armoire and desk.

We definitely achieved the look we were going for. It is so bright, airy, and comfortable. In addition, it was a very low cost makeover. I sold her old bedding on ebay. I actually made more money on it than I had originally paid. BONUS!! The walls were painted with OOPS paint for a total of only $8. The armoire was given to me for free, and the desk cost only $5 at Goodwill. The knobs on both are from Anthroplogie but were on sale for only $3 each. The color I used on both of these came from a $1 can of OOPS paint. I have had the mirror forever, so I don't remember what I paid for it, but I do remember getting it very inexpensively at TJ MAXX. The pom poms on the ceiling cost less than $1 to make. The art with the candleabras was a total of $5 for the frame. I painted the candleabras, hence no cost. The chandelier is my favorite piece in the room. I got it at Restore for $5 and gave it a new life. Total cost with materials was $10. You can see how I did it HERE.  The tulle curtains cost only $4.99 for the pair at Ikea.  Lastly the Amy Butler bedding was purchased at Home Goods for $40 and I got the bed skirt for free at CSN using a promotional code I won.

I'll be sure to update photos as we add things to the room.

Have a great day....

  19. I love Sami's room. The light green color for the walls in the room was a brilliant choice. The red blankets on the bed match well with the green wall.
