She wanted it to feel cozy and pulled together.
Welcome to Sanjuana's new room!
To take this room from college typical to college cozy I:
-added a bed frame to get her mattress off the floor.
-did a wall-o-curtains on the window wall and across the closet and took the doors down for easier access to her clothes. And I put cute little paper flowers on the curtains to give them a little feminine flair. (Kelli this idea has had so much life since first seeing your clip frames at Real Simple.com! Thank you thank you)! -added lots of lighting since she had zero overhead lighting. -painted her old side table pink (it's under the chandelier, sry I forget to snap a photo of it) -organized and simplified her desk area -added some hooks for her backpack, etc. -added a full length mirror that can be covered by the curtains or not (cause every girl needs a full length mirror)
Kallie is always willing to lend a hand (or a back). : )
Here are a few more glimpses... with a flash. : )
Sanjuana's friend Ronnie painted the Little Mermaid and Lucy picts!
Sanjuana and her boyfriend Fran made the mirror hanging on the hooks!
Oh and we totally came in at budget! We did quite a lot with a little!
ps- you read that posting correct... it is 6:30 am and I am up! Today is our last day of the 28 day yoga challenge and we are going to the 7 am yoga class so that we can do our last day together. Yes, I am officially crazy (and a damn good friend for being up this early). We made it to day 28 YAY YAY YAY, I feel totally buff even if I do still look asleep. lol
