As we are undoing the house and taking things down, I’m starting to remember how things looked when we first moved in. We definitely made some changes, but could only go so far because this has been a rental for us. And now with moving out, I wonder what will unfold as we make the new place our home…
This is what my daughter, Kaleigh’s room looked like when we first moved in here.
Great for a Spiderman fan, but for this, at the time 14 year old teenage girl, not so much.
So Kaleigh chose BM 2048-50 (Tropicana Cabana) to repaint the room in, and still loves it now! She was a big part of the prepping and painting process, which I featured here.
Kaleigh plays both the guitars hanging on her wall, and they are also key in her decorating scheme.
A great fit for the other must-have element in her décor, posters of her punk/alternative favorite band, AFI.
My only intervention – put them in poster frames!
The closet had been turned into a study cove by the owners for their son’s desk. This what it looked like before we turned it back into a closet.
Kaleigh loves her clothes, and she has a lot of them! This is how we turned the study cove back to a functioning closet. The left end has shelving with baskets on them.
You might recognize the closet because I wrote about it here.
Isn’t it amazing what a difference a can of paint and some creative organizing makes?
So as we take this next step with the move, I’m thinking about Kaleigh’s new room. She says she’s sticking with the black bedding, but wants a different accent fabric, like maybe a leopard print, and another colour for punch! And her guitars will definitely be a focal point.
Do you have any great ideas to showcase guitars? Would love to hear them!
