Total Room Overhaul Finale
Since January we've slowly been working on redoing Licious' room. This is how it started. And this is a look at it's progress.
Razor built this dresser/bed combo that holds a twin mattress on top and has these four humongous draws underneath. How humongous? Let's just say that these drawers hold everything that her two dressers used to and one is still completely empty. Plus, the cubby system holds everything that used to be in bins on the floor.
Speaking of the floor, it is a snap together cork flooring that we bought here. We choose cork for several reasons. It's an awesome green alternative considering the cork tree is never felled and, with proper cork harvesting, can live to over 100 years. Also, this room was a former front porch and the insulating qualities of the cork will help her room feel warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
That mirror is such a statement on the opposite wall from the bed. I found it at a thrift shop a few years ago and the orange really makes it sing.
I'm thrilled with the result. I think it's perfect for a ten year old and will still be perfect when she is eighteen and beyond.
She happens to love it as well.
