Being able to have some of the changes as DIY projects helped keep the budget in check. The DIY projects were: the window treatment, covering the cork board, covering a pillow form, and spray painting the base of the desk chair. With affordable prints downloaded from Etsy, Abby got some great new artwork in her space as well.
Of course the chair in all the talk in this room. Abby's dad found it in a cabin in West Bottom, Newfoundland and it has been collecting dust in the basement office since being moved to Calgary. He showed me the chair on initial consult so I had it in the back of my brain as a potential addition to the room. Abby originally wanted a large 'comfy' chair for the corner. So when I asked her if she had seen said chair and said 'no' I zipped her down to the basement to show her. Her expression 'that's cool!' was a welcome response, and so up it came. Which truthfully, I was slightly disappointed at because I was considering making an offer. Oh well, better that treasures stay with in families.
I even heard that Abby made her bed her first morning up (at 6:30 am none the less!) Here's the before and after shots - each taking you to more if you click on them.
