Daughter #2's Beachy Burb Bedroom.....

Hello again...finally!!!!!.(.blogger sure is having a rough time of it)...
I realized that I usually share projects I've worked on or a small part of a room...I thought today, I would share one of the girls burb house bedrooms with you....I love the beachy color she chose as well as the decor.  There are many thrifty elements in all of the girls rooms that I think you might like.  Remember, she is a 16 year old so it may not be magazine perfect, but she loves it!!!!!!!.....and, we did a big clean up in there the other day so good time for a photo shoot....hahaha.....
Happy Friday...xoxo, Mariaelena

This is her simple, thrifty, beachy style bedroom...she picked out this aqua paint...I love it with all of the white. Her embossed quilt and big colorful pillows are from Home Goods...The pictures above her bed are actually cards I picked up down the shore and framed them with chunky white frames.

This is one of the greeting cards I purchased.  They are the perfect wall hanging in those frames!!

little glass lamp purchased for $12.

Some feminine, fun accessories for all of her "stuff"...the glass jar was purchased at a tag sale...the mirror above her dresser was the original mirror in the bathroom that we took down.  My husband made a big white frame for it and it's perfect!!

The dresser was purchased last summer down by our beach house at a garage sale.  We brought it home and I gave it a fresh coat of white paint and put new hardware that my daughter picked out.  The candle sconces were purchased at a vintage home decor shop down the shore. 

See..."teenage stuff"!!!!....cute cottage bookcase for a steal and not that you can see it, lol, but the cork board has a beautiful distressed frame...bought that at Home Goods  as well,
(love that place)


Daughter #2, like the rest of us, loves to collect sea shells.  She went on a trip to France this spring break and loved it..(of course)!!

Thanks for visiting and come back soon!!!!!
