A hand-made room with love.

wall and geometric paint ing of drawers

Originally Fleur’s daughter’s room had white walls (Resene Cararra) with a pale green (Resene Tusk) ceiling, but she wanted to add more interest, colour and warmth to the room. Fleur added ‘panels’ of colour using Resene Bittersweet – inspired by the mustard colour in the duvet and curtains

Using a pattern found on the internet, Fleur cut out her own stencil and used this to stencil the Art Deco pattern on one side of the wardrobe. It took several evenings to cut out the stencil using a craft knife. It was stencilled one Saturday morning using a small piece of foam and a testpot of Resene Sweet Spot. Using a hole saw, Fleur cut the holes in the headboard to add more interest and then repainted it using Resene Double Foundry so that the silhouette would be a strong contrast on the wall behind, as well as picking up the black colour of the bed valance.

Fleur sanded off the old varnish from the thrift store bedside drawers, and using painters tape, she painted the triangles on the drawer fronts in a pattern similar to the duvet. She stripped and sanded the old desk and painted it in Resene Biscay and Resene Pearl Lusta. Fleur found the tray on the drawers at a church fair and painted it in Resene Venice Blue. Fleur’s creativity also extended to the beaded chandelier light shade that she made herself and the shelves made from salvaged timber planks.
