For the last decade, ThriftChick's room has been a bright colored middle school girl's dream. Among the yellow walls and white furniture, wild funky colors reigned. Flash forward a decade and ThriftChick is planning to live at home while she does her student teaching semester. Somehow her collection of vintage records and cameras just didn't fit into the middle school room. Enter Mama Thrift. While she was in Michigan working this summer, the family got to work to transform her room from middle school to adulthood.
It was a family affair. Her brothers pulled up and hauled out ugly blue carpet and pulled up a million tacks and nails. We put up beadboard wallpaper (our old farmhouse has nightmare walls...that is a post for another day). Her sister-in-law and I painted. Her father, younger brother and I put in the floor. Then the fun began. We started hauling in all the pieces we had been thrifting and saving for the last two years. Her father (whom we shall now refer to as Patient Man) got so into it, that I thought he actually was channeling HGTV. Everything in the room was thrifted or was a piece we had somewhere in the house except for her record player and the carpet on the floor. See what you think.
Cluck, Cluck Sew.
ThriftChick was blown away when she got home. She is so in love with it that she keeps it clean....now that is the measure of a great redo!
