Nancy's bedroom is the second room in the house to be fully finished. (Check out the kitchen here.) I started on this room first but have been chopping and changing things a little over the past few weeks. Her room is situated in the old cottage part of the house so I definitely wanted to keep the decor a little traditional but with some fresh and colourful ideas.
We chose a very understated light wood coloured laminate flooring in the bedrooms and as we painted all the walls white in the house (for now!), Nancy's room was really a blank canvas to start with.
As so much of her toys, blankets, little pieces of furniture are bright and colourful, I went for a black and white polkadot feature wall (read this DIY here) and I found an old black cast iron hospital bed on DoneDeal for a steal! Oh ya, turns out the guy who sold me the bed was the nephew of the couple who sold us the house, how Irish!
Her wardrobe was a whopping €25 in CJM furniture as it had a big scrap across the door, so I just sanded it down and varnished it again. I have serious wardrobe envy now! Her treasure trunk was originally in my childhood bedroom and is pretty darn old.
The rest of the decor is a lot of DIYs I've made for her over the past three years including her dollhouse and her play cooker. I recently reupholstered her little armchair that you can see in the photos below, I'll share a blog post on that too soon.
I shared a photo on my Instagram account of Nancy's room before and after a few weeks ago but I think the truer version would be a before shot of the room the day we bought it...
Ya don't worry, we kept that light fixture :)
