My Daughter's Dressing Room

My latest project has been fixing up a dressing room for my daughter, Lea. 
Bear in mind, this would not be possible without
 thrifty shopping!
This room was originally an extra bedroom. Since it joins my daughter's bedroom and is only accessible by going through her room, I decided to turn it into a dressing room. 
We moved the old furniture out yesterday, painted the walls, and fixed it up.  Yes, I am tired!

Enjoy the pictures!

My mother gave Lea this old dresser.  I painted it black, and it is now her vanity.
I found this beautiful lamp at a thrift store while vacationing in Hilton Head.

I printed and framed Proverbs 31:25 NLT
I found a set of two of these frames at a
Goodwill in Hilton Head, SC. for $2.

Monday, after a doctor's appointment, I thought I would swing by a 
thrift store on the way home
I found this futon for only $19.99!
It was in excellent condition, but I bought a new black cover
for it.
I would like
to find a round floor table or coffee table
 to place in front of the futon.

The chair was given to me by a friend. I used the other chairs and table in my 

I still need to find a small black table that will sit in front of this window.  Lea will use it 
as her "nail station". She also
needs an area rug. 

 The vintage make up mirror was purchased a couple weeks ago at an 
antique store. 
I need to get a couple of storage bins for the 
shelf in the corner so she can store some of her accessories.

 This was an idea that my daughter found on Pinterest.  It is aquarium rocks inside of a large glass that we found at a Goodwill store.  It's great for holding make up brushes.

I have a few more prints to frame and hang on the wall to the left in this picture.  
I also need to find
a small set of chest of drawers for extra clothes.
 I may make a trip to the nearest Goodwill today.
I think I may have an addiction to thrift stores! Haha!
(I changed the curtains behind the futon by taking the valance out and pulling the 2 shear panels together.  New picture below.)

 This chandelier was found in a booth at an antique mall for only $15!

I also printed and framed Proverbs 31:30.

Well, that's all until my next trip to a thrift store.
I never know what I'm going to find!

as of 08/13/14 7:40 pm

Yay, I got two more tables today! 
They were given to me by a friend!

 I'm going to add another glass and a
 saucer to make this 3 tiered. 

I still need an area rug.
