Glamorous Children's Guest Room & Craft Room

I started working with this one amazing women a few years ago. We started downstairs, in her stunning and historical 6,300+ square foot home in Gladwyne PA, and worked our way up to the third floor where the her children's playrooms and kid friendly guestroom are. The best part about working with the owner is that we share the same love for antiques, vintage furniture and up-cycling pieces to make them fun and one of a kind.

Before My Designs

My client had these vintage bunk beds in her storage room and wanted to re-use them, an idea that I loved, so we decided to paint them. I found an inspiration photo and had the talent Re-painted Furniture by Lisa come in to paint and give a distressed look by using a special wax method she has mastered.

The Big Reveal

And as you can see in the after photos below, the bed (and the rest of the space) came out great! The wallpaper gives the room the glamorous vintage feel and the mixed with some modern pieces. I love the feel of this cozy guest room. 

For the craft room, my stylish client found a very cool and old bookcase on Craigslist. I had a local painter refresh it [Re-Painted Furniture by Lisa] and a few other pieces.

Then I went on to pull this awesome butcher block craft table together, I had Lisa paint the chairs gold and we re-covered them in faux sheep fur (wow)! My client had this amazing mirror frame in her basement that I thought would make a great cork board to hang the kids art work and we also added a few more gold frames to hang more artwork in. I love the glamorous look all while saying very kid friendly!

I love the transformation. Its cozy, fun and glamours craft room for the children! I love all vintage pieces we re-used, they really make the room special.
