Hi! We are Marg and Liz
the “Fancy Farmgirls”
Five years ago, Liz moved her family back into our childhood home,
Sounds storybook sweet doesn’t it?
and parts of it are
parts of it are not.
This served as our childhood bedroom.
This room with its peeling plaster ceiling and paint splattered floors
quickly became a catch all “storage room” when Liz moved back in.
Then over time It slowly evolved into a girls room/catchall storage room.
It’s enough to make a girl feel like throwing up her arms in defeat,
Liz threw on the paint!
Our favorite way to update!
And the final result…..
A cheerful girls bedroom using ONLY second hand furniture.
First order of business,
Color and personality for the walls!
Wall color: Sherwin Williams Windowpane 6210
Add on gold wall vinyl dots and you’ve got
fun, quick personality!
This rug was the jumping off point for the rest of the room
And this color combo was our inspiration.
And remember, all furniture is second hand.
They just needed a makeover to bring them all together.
This garage sale find dresser has made its rounds from room to room
and although it’s not overly obnoxious,
the flower stencil was dating it and the previous owner had changed out the hardware with pulls that didn’t fit.
The pulls got a spray paint makeover
and the dresser, a fresh coat of paint.
The art piece for over the dresser is hand painted
by using various shades of our dresser color.
Plain pillows and lampshades were adorned with coordinating pom poms.
Can a girl have too many pom poms?
We think not!
This room has become a little girls dream room
I think the local resident agrees!
I just might move in and be her roomie!
Most of these furnishings have gone through multiple
makeovers in order to fit in with new rooms, new looks and changing tastes.
There’s no need to feel like a new makeover requires new furnishings.
Just new paint!
