Teen Girl Bedroom Makeover

So while many families spend Labour Day weekend camping, playing in sports tournaments or having a last hur-rah before school starts, our family does room makeovers!
Yup. You can find us wielding paint brushes, straddling ladders, eating sandwiches on drop cloths and having a blast. And oh how we love our Benjamin Moore paint! It is our  'must-have' paint for any room makeover.
Our daughter had been planning this bedroom makeover for awhile now. She wanted a fresh look for her senior year of High School.  But before we get to the nitty gritty, let's back up a bit and have a look at how this room has transformed over the years.
Let's chat 2005. It was a pink room for an 8 year old who had just moved with her family 3000 miles across the country. She chose this pink girly look along with adorable pink and green patchwork bedding. It was so sweet and cozy!
And then we hit 2009. Our junior high girl wanted a more sophisticated looks, so we treated the walls with Benjamin Moore's 'Whisper of Gray' for a light lavender look, complete with new bedding.
This time our daughter wanted to paint her room herself, so we gave her 'carte blanche' to do as she wished. She chose Benjamin Moore's Blue Bonnet and set to work to take her room to a new look for 2013. One of the reasons we love Benjamin Moore paint is because of it's excellent quality which is also perfect for beginning painters...it's goes on beautifully with very little splatter! The paint that we used for this project was Benjamin Moore's Aura Paint. It delivers amazing coverage, incredible durability and beautiful deep colour that makes any room look stunning. I have used Benjamin Moore  for over 15 years and I don't ever plan to use any other brand!



After a day and two coats of Aura paint, we had a brand new fresh room! 
Would you like to take a peek?
The room became the fresh, calming oasis that my daughter was after! The walls in Blue Bonnet set the stage for everything!
With a few colourful pillows and fresh white bedding,  the room really came alive.
{Pillow sources: blue chevron pillow, yellow weave pillow, HomeSense. 
Flowerpillow: Trendy Home. Bedding: Target $79.99}
We also invested in a few small pieces like a small Ikea bedside table and basket weave lamp from HomeSense.
And my daughter wished for very sheer, white curtains and I found a very inexpensive pair at HomeSense on clearance for $15.00!
And then we shopped the house for a few accessories like a this tray,vase and white box.
 And my daughter created this study area for herself with a new study surface and wall lamps from Ikea. She really loves clean, no clutter surfaces!
I love this room so much! But I keep getting kicked out! How about that?
My daughter loves her 'new' room. And I loved that she was able to tackle this painting project herself with the help of Benjamin Moore!
I think it looks fabulous!

Stay tuned for another room makeover coming up soon...our son's room.

We would like to thank Benjamin Moore Canada for very generously supplying the paint for this  beautiful room makeover. To learn more about using Benjamin Moore paints for your next painting project, you can visit their website HERE.
