“I’ve been flea-marketing for 25 years. I always stumble across things and think, I can do something with that.”
That one day my friend Laura Jean introduced me to her friend Carlie Elizabeth…
…who was so sweet to invite me over to help her dream up ideas decorating ideas for her bedroom…
…and then let me tag along and throw my two cents in at EIGHT of my favorite local stores…
…and trusted me when I said it might be neat to have a desk on one side of her bed instead of two matching nightstands…
…and got a little nervous when I got reeeeally excited about this $34 chest of drawers…
Don’t worry, Carlie. We can definitely do something with that. 😉
Lots of painting, and hanging, and accessorizing to do over the next few weeks. I can’t wait to share the room reveal with you here when it’s all done!
PS- I saw a lot of comments asking about Carlie’s shoes on Instagram the other day. Here’s a link to the brand and color: OTBT-Bushnell in Gold!
If Carlie Elizabeth decides she doesn’t like the desk, I’ll drive up to Pike Road to pick it up!
Are the floors painted pine boards? Painted plywood cut into strips? What?
Pretty desk! Will be fun to see how it all comes together!
I cannot wait to see everything! So much fun! Thanks so much for sharing.
I’m so excited! What a great project and the room already has good bones.

Yay! Finally a decorating post! Oh how I have missed them! I’m SO excited to see what you do with it. Carlie’s room looks pretty big, can you include the room dimensions?
And are you going to do an Easter mantel? or an Easter tablescape? I’d love ideas for a simple yet elegant yet fun (yet commercialism-free?) Easter mantel and tablescape… 😉 just saying 😉
So excited for Carlie!
It’s a lovely space. That blue door!! I can’t wait to see what you bring to this room.
Guess we will be seeing some projects!
I really like the desk! Look forward to see if you paint it. It looks like y’all had a good time!
Nice post of decorating ! Carlie’s room looks pretty big! What a great project and the room has good bones. Thanks so much for sharing.
Looking forward to see the completed room.
Lovely room, so much potential! Can’t wait to see the reveal 🙂
