In this shot you can see the pretty coral and gray bedding that Abigail selected for her room. You also see several DIY projects including the framed magazine pages and the stainless steel look dressers.

This shot is very similar, but here you can see the (super small) closet and Abigail's rustic magnetic board. The board was a fun gift from a friend that allows Abigail to post important information and pictures of friends.
This board was made by Matchstix.
You can't see it in these photos, but I added ribbon trim to the bed skirt so that it would tie into the rest of the bedding.
You may remember the curtains I embellished to coordinate with the color scheme.
I filled the space in the corner with an oversized mirror that is perfect for the frequent wardrobe checks that are a part of every teen girl's morning.
Every teenage girl needs a place to be creative and do her homework. Abigail has this desk (for now).
Here's the lamp I customized to go with the coral bedding...
and the storage box I made to conceal some of the many things a teenager needs to get through the day.
You may be asking why she has four bottles of glitter spray on her desk. I have no clue. Ninety percent of what teenage girls do is a mystery to me, and this is no exception.
I bought a few inexpensive coral bowls to corral teen necessities like sunglasses (see above) and iPods and phones.
A fun little piece of homemade computer generated artwork looks great in a metallic frame and coordinates with the room's color scheme.
Looking around at the room now, it's hard to believe that just two months ago it looked like this:
Very cute, but a bit more juvenile than what my thirteen year old wanted.
And now it looks like this:
Wow, what a difference! I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!! I wish I had a dozen daughters so I could always be redecorating a girl's room (umm... not really - the two I have keep me on my toes).
