We want it all but on a budget. So begins the story of my daughters room. She has a gorgeous room now. Wow did it cost me a pretty penny too. But now that she has hit middle school classic sophistication in toiles is not her dream. WHAT? I have slowly had to let go of my vision and move past MY dream room for her. I am a visualizer which comes in quite handy in my field of expertise ~Interior Design. As I lie on my daughters bedroom floor I visualize what it would be like to be 11. This time around however I plan on doing it on the cheap. After all Little Miss Whimsy has two counterparts Master Whimsy 1 and Master Whimsy 2 both who have big plans for a new space for themselves as well. Looks like this mama is going to be busy in projects for awhile.
So begin the projects leading up to this dream room. Here is the first one I tackled. She had picked out some storage boxes from PB Teen. $59. for a cardboard storage box.......really? When I spotted these storage photo boxes at Michaels 3 for $5 I decided maybe we could do something fun with them. Something that did not cost $59.00!
So I bought some fun stamps to use and pulled out the craft paint and sticker letters and Little Miss Whimsy and I had some mother daughter time making some fun storage boxes. Total cost was under $10. I am a perfectionist who knows when to let perfectionism go. This was the case when it came to this project. After that first stamp I quickly decided that precision along with perfectionism would not play a part in this project!
A quick and easy project to accomplish. This room is going to be one big transformation and this is only the tip of the iceberg. I will be featuring all my fun, easy and money saving projects for this room each week. I hope you visit and get some ideas along the way as we go from Classic girl room to Hip and Funky Tween room.
