VA Beach Room Re-do Items & Behind-The-Scenes

Howdy! Hope you had a great weekend. We spent most of today getting “back on track”. Luggage, laundry and litter, oh my. If I didn’t know any better I’d think our cat purposely threw paw fulls of litter onto the floor in front of his litter box to punish us for leaving him. That, or he used it as confetti to celebrate that we went away. :-)
I also managed to compile the list of items we used in the room re-do we did in Virginia Beach today. All of the photos below link to the stores where we purchased the items.

“Designview” Maple Louvera Roman Shade:

(We bought one that measured 31″ wide, and another that measured 72″ wide to simulate the look of double windows above the headboard.)

“Darjeel” double curtain rods in bronze:

Drop Cloths:

“Alvine Trad” curtains:

(We used these behind the drop cloth drapes to add another layer of color and pattern to the room.)

“Riktig Ogla” curtain ring clips:

Pottery Barn king-sized “Classic Ticking” duvet and euro shams in blue:

Pottery Barn “Kristine” 20″ pillow covers:

Pottery Barn “Pick-Stitch” 12×24 lumbar pillow cover in ink blue:

12×24 lumbar pillow insert:

(We used this lumbar pillow on the window seat)

8×10 “Cooper” Cotton Rug in blue:

31″ wide “Billy” bookcase:

(We used two of these in Brandon and Heather’s room)

15.75″ wide “Billy” bookcase:

“Billy Byom” doors for the lower half of the two wide “Billy” bookcases:

(We used four of these to give Brandon and Heather extra storage for folded clothes.)

Knobs for the doors:

(The doors did come with little knobs, but they were plain, white pegs and we wanted to do something a little more fancy)

Beadboard wallpaper:

(One roll covered the backs of all three bookcases)

Bookcase lights:

“Hemnes” dresser:

(We used this small piece of furniture just inside the bedroom door. Although, Brandon and Heather’s armoire (which they had previously used in this spot) is tall, dark and handsome, it’s also very deep. Using this shorter, lighter-colored, shallow piece allows you to see the whole room when you come through the door, which is much more refreshing than walking into the side of a huge armoire.)

Tip Du Jour: The wall here wasn’t very wide, so all the “adult-sized” dressers I looked at were all too wide. I ended up finding this smaller-scale dresser in the childrens furniture department. You can often find the same style furniture pieces there, but they’re just a little smaller in scale, which is exactly what we needed here!

(The mirror above the small dresser is from Walmart)

Small “Jonsbo Egby” table lamp:

“Beta” plant pot:

“Kardemumma” plant pot:

“Branas” baskets:

“Agen” baskets:

6″ and 8 3/4″ “Sockerart” white enamelware pitchers:

(We used the small and medium-sized pitchers on top of the armoire.)

“Fejka” artificial plants:

(Heather said she didn’t have a green thumb, so I picked up a couple of these artificial plants. We used the first one and the third one.)

“Sagolik” lidded jars:

“Beach” sign from White Flower Farmhouse:

Driftwood Sailboat from White Flower Farmhouse:

The paint color we used on the walls is “Cream Fleece” (233) by Benjamin Moore.


It was a very busy three days, but we did manage to sneak in some time to shoot a little video ourselves…

If you want to check out the segment that aired on CBN, you can watch it here.


We want to send a big thanks out to all the fine folks who helped us finish the room on time. (The scenic department at CBN rules!) Tomorrow, it’s back to work on design consultations for me, and the guest bathroom reno for Kevin. It’s great to be back, and we’re excited to blog about the transformation throughout the week!
