Bedroom Re-Do for my Son and Daughter -n- Love

My Children are so understanding of my decorating bug. These two are so open to my ideas and
are so gracious to let me invade their space and do whatever I like. I just sorta started finding things that just shouted out to me as I was out junking that said " OH, this looks like Todd or this is SO Katherine. Well, you know how it goes.....before I knew it I had everything to re-do their bedroom!! Hope you like it!! This is not a French project, but one that I had fun with and hope
you enjoy!!

You can see my Grand Dog Josie, she said, "Mimi"
can I help??

The pencil post bed, was built by my husband back in the 80's.
  We left it black and it worked fine with all the other bright colors.
I had made the curtains for them at an earlier time. The Green in
the curtains went with the green accents in the owl pillows on
the bed.
The Hope chest is from Katherine's family, so we
did not paint it. I found the little basket at GoodWill to hold the TV remote
and movies. The two pillows on the chest came from Marshall's and the 
flat pillow from GoodWill.
The night stands were also built by my husband, we painted
them in a coral chalk paint. I found the white lamps at a
Thrift store called "The Fix" in Dallas Ga.  The lamp shapes another GoodWill find.
The pale gray and white duvet  with pillow cases and matching accent pillows and pink
silk pillows came from Ikea. I found the soft flannel owl print at GoodWill after stitching
the owl print into pillow cases I  added burlap trim.
I displayed a vintage comic book, a
movie and one of Todd's old vintage
cameras on his nightstand.
The Vintage camera poster was a
perfect find at Woodstock Antique Market.
The frame is another Goodwill find, I just added a
little coral paint to the it. My son collects old cameras, so I knew he would love this!
I found this wall sconce at a thrift store in
Florida, it was an ugly brown with black
wrought iron.I painted and distressed it using
dark wax and then touching it with some of
the coral paint. Then found the perfect size
candles at a thrift store in Roswell.

For Katherine's nightstand, I bought a white owl from
Marshall's ( because she earned her Masters' at
KSU- the Fighting Owls!) and a coral frame to
display a sweet picture of Katherine with her Dad.
