We have an Orange Room and it's cool!

I have transformed my daughter's bedroom at our beach place.  She wanted orange, so I said why not!!  Here are some before and after pictures!



The room was white and dirty.  The carpet was gross.



Notice the door with some sort of sticker on it?  It's also plain....


The folding closet doors with the ugly carpet.  The carpet had soooo many stains.


Big window, but boring!  We are going to get the big wood blinds. 


We painted her room orange.  I had Lowes match the orange in her bedspread, and hung some curtains I got from "Smart Bargins.com"  The curtains match her bedspread as well.


Notice the hardwood floors?  My hubby put those down!  That cool lamp in the corner came from IKEA


Another view!


We replaced the door! I think it looks so much better!



We also replaced the closet doors!  They are not the folding kind anymore!


This is her bed.  It's a platform bed.  I love the squares above her bed.  Those were easy to make.  We took foam, scrapbook paper, and brown ribbon and there you have some beatuiful art!


Here is a closer view of the art!!!

She loves her room and I really do as well.  I didn't know how the orange would look, but I think it looks great!  It took me 3 coats of paint!!!


I hope you enjoyed your tour of one of our bedrooms at our beach place!


We are also redoing our bathroom which had a leak under our bathtub.  If you want to see some of these pictures go here or here.  We are still working on it, so stayed tune!

Absolutley awesome....LOVE IT!!! I can picture your daughter in it, just perfect for her. I love too how you did the art for her room...looks like a million dollars, but thankfully it's not, huh?

I got your package in the mail...thanks so much again! It's wierd but I am not getting updates when this blog has a new post...can't figure it out, because I am following it, but it never shows up. Grrr.

Sheri said...

Oh awesome! I was looking at a tangerine colored comforter in my dd's room...I just showed her this post and she's in love. (Bookmarking this so I can remember it!)

I have a linky party and a plea for help @ my place: http://theshadesofpink.blogspot.com/2009/10/room-month-bedroom-conundrum.html Want to check it out? (I apologize if you already linked, 1/2 asleep. LOL)

I love it! Great job you did and the perfect shade. I love orange too and when I was 12 my Mom allowed me to paint my room Marigold trim & Zinna walls. It was the grooviest. I loved to decorate back then too.

Hi Lori
Emily's new orange room looks fantastic. I bet she is thrilled. Everything tones together wonderfully. Sorry your bathroom re-model is taking time. I look forward to seeing it when it's finished.
