Bring in big sister Marilyn and she turns it into THIS:
Jill is renting so you know how that goes. No painting. Luckily the wall color was already a nice neutral tone so it went nicely with the new decor.
Jill fell in love with the color in the 2 side table lamps. As far as she knew that's all that was going into that room because it was all done in secret, a While You Were Out kind of thing.
Marilyn took some of Jill's existing thrift store finds and gave them some TLC.
Of course she made the bedskirt and all but 2 of those pillows on that bed. She made the window valances and the picture frame shelves.
Oh yeah, and she made the headboard too. Maybe someday she'll provide us with a tute on how she did it. I have a door headboard in my master bedroom too, but now I think I'm going to order me some tin and add to it.
Such talent our sister has.
I've been planning a While You Were Out for my girls' room for awhile. Helping put Jill's room together has lit a fire under me to get going faster on it.
