So first, let me show you what bedroom number 3 looked like when I purchased The House On Cottage Grove. The previous owners called it The Sunflower Room for obvious reasons. I call it “sunflower overload!”

So the first thing we did was to get rid of all that wallpaper. We then re-mudded the stucco walls to give them a nicer finish.

We also added new trim around the windows and doors.

And then the room got a fresh coat of Natural Almond by Behr Premium Plus Ultra Paint in Satin.

Next we added beadboard on a couple of walls along with new baseboard. The original hardwood floors were refinished as well, then covered to protect them.

In designing this bedroom I had a teenage girl in mind. So when I went shopping for fabric and found this beautiful floral called Juliet from Waverly, I snapped it up along with a bright solid yellow fabric for contrast.

Then I began to sew, making a duvet cover, throw pillows and curtains for this feminine, girly room.

The forested view out of this window is absolutely breathtaking.

The built-in bureau got painted…

and a vintage needlework purse found a place on a tree branch hook next to the closet.

And as I mentioned in my last reno post, The House On Cottage Grove was filled with beautiful embroidered linens when I purchased the home. They were mostly just stuffed in various drawers throughout the house. I found this sweet pink floral tea towel and decided it would make a very cute little pillow.

I also rescued an old gold wicker chair that had been left behind by the previous owners.

I gave it coat of fresh green paint…

and covered the old cushion with the bright yellow fabric. Now the pretty embroidered pillow sits happily on its new/old wicker chair.

The original room had a sunflower-yellow, gateleg, bedside table. See it there on the left side of the photo below?

I gave it a coat of primer, then painted it green and it now continues its job as a nightstand. But I do believe it’s much prettier now.

As a tribute to the former “Sunflower Themed” room I added a vase of fresh sunflowers.

I also acquired this rose embroidery with the house. It had been framed in drab dark brown.

It too got a fresh coat of green paint and now hangs over the nightstand.

And I painted the carved wooden frame that housed a pretty original oil painting of red roses.

A blush pink sweater weave area rug found here at World Market was the perfect addition to this feminine, cosy enclave of a room.

  • Gosh, don’t really make me pick just one room. lol. I think you’ve done a fabulous job on each bedroom, and every room in the house that you’ve shared. I like so many of the elements from each bedroom. I am delighted that you were able to revive many of the pieces left behind and give them a new life in this charming home.

  • Gosh, you are so very kind to say that! And yes, it was really exciting to see how what seemed like junk turned into something very nice.

  • So hard to choose, but I think the twin room is my favorite. I’m amazed at how you’re able transform many pieces of furniture and built in features of the house to look so fresh and new. Requires such vision, and a lot of hard work. Such a cozy get away spot . . . some lucky kids are going to make wonderful memories in this house.

  • You know Juliet, I think I am most satisfied with the twin bedroom too. It makes me happy to think of children enjoying this home. I grew up coming to Lake Arrowhead, and the memories I made here are cherished.
