Finished at Last....

Well, we are mostly finished, some tweaking here and there, but she LOVES the new look. As I was finishing up the last few days, helping her sort, discard, find a place for...it really struck me how hard this has been on her, not only physically battling cancer for 6 1/2 years, but having to give up a whole lifestyle, loosing a job, having to move from her own apartment, and trying to fit her life into a 12x13 room. But I think this fits her life right now, comfy cozy and it's her colors and choices....the pictures just don't do it justice, or at least the photographer...

On with the show

She found this little fireplace on clearance at Big Lots. She said if she could ever find a little fireplace she would get one for her room....so here it is, it really is beautiful in person

This is the Armoire all finished and decorated with all of her special little things she loves. She also has the DVR from the satellite hidden up there behind the plant.

Her room is so small that her very tall dresser also acts as a headboard. We covered the back and tufted the fabric with buttons.

A cute little clock she found at Hobby Lobby

She had framed these Thomas Kinkade prints from a calendar when she had her apartment. They went perfectly with the color.

A new valance and side panels to add some drama.

A little desk she found 'good willing' one day. Just the right size to fit

We found this little coat hook yesterday, the perfect solution for where to hang her robes...she loved the bling. I still need to touch up the color of the screws.

That pretty much finished up the show, we may add things as we change and tweak a little, but she loves it...whew....

Till Later


  1. I love your armoire! The fireplace is a nice addition too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. You have done a great job making your daughters room comfy and stylish too. We live in an RV and have a similar fireplace. It makes it so cozy. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. Bobbi,
    I love the finish on the armoire you completed for your daughter and would like to recreate it somewhat. Would you mind sharing your color choices of chalk paint? and did you use clear or dark wax or a combination? Thanks, Barbie
