Her Dream Room…
Moving right along on my #projecthayesdreamcabin house tour, comes my absolute favorite room so far in our cabin. Our cabin is so cute and charming (i.e. small LOL!), it proves to be very difficult to get great wide angle shots in the rooms so you will all just have to come visit and see it for yourself! Gosh I would LOVE to have a big ole’ Addison’s Wonderland blog party at our cabin. How fun would that be?!? Anyways, our daughters’ bedroom is turning out to be so dreamy that I had to share it next…
As you can see, it was not so dreamy and inviting when we first closed on the home. It had sat for quite some time, we are thinking years and years, and gathered a fair amount of dust. When I say fair I mean the entire house smelled like a really bad antique store. The one and only thing we kept from the home are these amazing dressers. There were a total of 4 dressers and 4 nightstands and I am absolutely smitten with them. Although I hope to re-finish some or all of them eventually, I do love them as they are for now.
The main level living room and bedrooms saw a little less intensive construction than the remainder of the home. For this room, we cleaned, painted and made custom built-in bunk beds for the room. At our previous home, we had surprised Addison with a finished loft room above her playroom for her 4th birthday. It was her all-time favorite spot and ever since we moved, she has begged for another loft. Since that wish may be a good ways off for now, my husband and several guys built custom bunk beds for the girls. Addie calls the top bunk her loft and adores her new little hiding spot. For the bunks, he finished them out in cedar and we stained them Weathered Grey by Rustoleom.
For the walls and ceilings, I chose a beautiful white paint called Alabaster by Sherwin Williams and for the trim, I wanted a warm gray so I chose Tweed Coat by Benjamin Moore. Once the painting and bunks were complete, it was time to furnish the room! I found this adorable coral nightstand at a local antique store near our home and it was the perfect fit for the space beside the bunks. It has become the girl’s toy box and I also like that it blocks off the exterior door. For the bedding, I wanted something bright white to stand out against the gray bunks. I fell in love with these ruffled comforters from Target and they also came with shams. Finally, the rug was an impulse buy from my fave, fave, favorite store Anthropologie! I purchased it without really knowing which room it would go in, but I LOVE it in their room! Here’s the grand tour (products linked below)…
