What's New - Teenage Girl Room

I have a confession to make, 
I actually finished Em's Glam room in November! 
 I worked so hard on it that I didn't do much blogging about it till after it was finished. I then decided I didn't want another project started until after the holidays, 
I didn't start anything new until January!
It was a great break, 
I have to say by the end of those two months I was starting to feel like I was having DIY withdrawals!!  
I know I am weird!!

I bet you can't guess what my next project is?
Here is a hint!

No! I am not having babies!!
 But I do have these super cute twins,
(OK they are teenagers now, but I couldn't resist put up their baby picture)
and if you do one twins room, the other is sure to follow!!!

As promised, my next project is Ashlee's room!!

As I always do, let's look at her room and talk about her needs and wants!!!

First, Ashlee needs a new closet system.
Have I mentioned before how I loath a single closet rod?
(Oh, I have about a million times!! It's not super functional!)
She needs storage and by her request a window seat and a mirror!!

Let's see what we have to work with.

I want to give her:
 a new light fixture, 
do some sort of ceiling treatment, 
a bigger more dramatic head board,
built ins for storage and displaying,
and a window seat.

We set up the room two different ways to let her see which way she liked best. After living with each for a week or so, she picked the option with a window seat! (Big surprise!lol)
Can you see our make shift built ins and window seat below?
Setting up the room this way really gave us an idea of the flow of the room before we committed to all that building.

This last wall will have  a mirror on it. 
 If you look close you can see a bunch of tacks on the wall, yeah every wall looked like that!!  
Can you say lots of pin holes equals lots of filler!!!
And as usual I have already started collecting great deals for her room, I will tell you all about those baskets later!!!

So there you have it, we are diving in to this new project!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Can't wait to see it! I'm sure she'll help you fill all those holes, which might make her more hesitant to put new tacs in when it's done :)

Yay! I am so excited to see what you do in her room! No, I don't think you're odd going into withdrawls from a DIY project. On my busy, hectic, stessful day at work, after I have become aggravated, iratible & just plain snarky & rotten to be around.... Prince Charming will ask me "Hey sweetie, think maybe you need some ME-time in front of your sewing machine???" Yes, for real. He does say that. Wish I had your eye for "deals" - we doa a LOT of DIY projects, but nearly 99.9% is brand new stuff.

Waiiting on more pictures!
