bedroom make-over [wants]

What I do know about Katie’s bedroom [make-over] WISH list:

Katie wants gray walls… but, not too dark, since her bedroom space is only about 10-feet X 10 1/2-feet (not including the closet and ‘nook’]. That’s funny!! It’s almost the size of her horse stall!! hahahaha!!! However, we can ‘accessorize’ with various shades of gray!

lots of pillows!

She wants a sort-of industrial, reclaimed/repurposed decorating scheme. Let me explain with a few photos & examples.

Here’s a few ideas for shelving in her ‘nook’ where her former desk/cork board resided [no more]!

love the shelving!

Rustic Shelf

But, we decided on ‘built-in’ shelving…I have a lead on some reclaimed 14-inch wide boards! Here’s what we’re currently thinking for the shelves in the nook.

A few accessories, can really help achieve the ‘industrial’ scheme also. A ‘special’ chair, for late night reading…!

Salvaged, unique lighting/vintage-styled bulbs perhaps?


A touch of whimsy…knitted cord cover?

I need to knit a cord!! Matt Lamp: knit-cord lamp, industrial and soft at the same time

…and a few personal¬†touches: graphic ART [for the pre-vet Freshman]???
