Kitty decided to use a nautical theme to transform this attic into a fun little boy's bedroom for under $1000.
Kitty got to work starting with the partially exposed chimney.
She removed the rest of the plaster wall around the chimney to expose the brick, adding texture to the room.
Kitty and her team changed the color of the walls from a harsh yellow to a cool blue that matched the room's theme.
Rope trim is a fun and inexpensive way to add texture to a wall.
When redecorating a room, you don't have to get rid of all of your old furnishings. Kitty kept the existing bed and dresser...
...and look at them now! Instead of simply repainting the bed, Kitty glued laminated maps to the headboard and footboard. She carried the rope design element from the walls and wrapped rope around the bedposts.
What can they do with this sad looking bulletin board?
Kitty covered it with patterned pillowcases and bits of sheets. It is a wonderful way to tie in the look of the room.
It's the little extras that can pull a room together. Kitty placed a globe area rug at the foot of the bed and
…canoe paddles with hangers on the walls for hats and clothes.
Kitty painted stars and moons on a light drapery fabric and tied it on top of the rods. Using the same pattern, she painted stars and moons on the ceiling.
You can duplicate this effect by creating your own pattern with large rubber stamps.
Before: This makeshift attic bedroom was sparse and mismatched.
After: It's a wonderful room for your sailor! Total cost: $956!
