I have another guest poster today for you all! Cassie from Primitive & Proper has agreed to share about her recent makeover on her daughter’s room. It’s so adorable. I think my favorite part is the robins egg blue dresser! I found Cassie’s blog a long time ago and she always has classy and creative ideas, so please go check it out!! I’m posting on her blog today about my bedroom makeover, so check that out as well!
Without further adieu, take it away Cassie!
Hello Homemade Ginger Readers! I am so honored and excited to be here. I am Cassie from Primitive & Proper, a blog where I share my furniture redos, my own home (which we sold and will be moving into a new home in about two weeks, so come on over to follow the adventure!), and a little of this and that.
I stumbled upon Megan’s blog a long time ago, and fell in love with her style- her daughter’s room and her living room are engrained in my memory forever! Since I love Lula’s room so much, and love the eco-friendly vibe of Megan’s blog, I thought I would share my own daughter’s room which was done on a budget with many upcycled items! Emmy is a 4 year old with an opinion and voice of her own, so I let her choose the color scheme, which was pink, orange, and blue.
The walls of her room were already painted “rosily” by Sherwin Williams, using their Harmony paint, which is low VOC. I also refinished several pieces of furniture for her room, using all zero and low VOC paints such as Mythic, and Aura by Benjamin Moore, and Harmony.
The first piece of furniture I redid for her room redo was a bed that I found at a yard sale for $25.
I painted it in Alabaster by Sherwin Williams in Harmony paint. Here you can see it in her room when we had more pinks going on in there.
The next piece I finished was a beautifully detailed dresser I found at the auction for $20.
I painted it in Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint in Fairytale Blue. Emmy and I had it narrowed down to a couple colors, but we loved the name of this one and I am sure you can see why!
I also found the perfect desk/vanity for her room that doubled as a nightstand.
It was painted in Orange Delicia by Mythic, and the knobs are clearance from Anthropologie a long time ago.
There were some other touches added, like new pillows, a clearance rug from Anthropologie, and I painted a tree on her wall using the orange paint from the vanity. Here is what the room looked like when everything was all finished!
Her room in our old house was such a happy place for her to play. We have been busy dreaming up her new room in our new house, and are excited to finally be able to get to work on it! I would love for you to follow us on our new journey as we revamp a 70’s home and make it ours! (Assuming all inspections go well!)
Megan, thank you SO much for having me here today! Have a wonderful weekend!
