Wild Thing...

I am so excited to share this latest addition to the Tween Room with you! I had so  much fun doing it.
Although I could not help imaginig someone shopping at Goodwill a few years from now, going, "What the heck was this person thinking?" 
LOL! Just kidding. This one has many more makovers left in her before she ends up at Goodwill....

In the sixteen years since I bought her as a raw pine corner cabinet, she has changed from Lilac, to dark brown stain, to white.
Now she was ready for something really different. 

Of course, the first thing that went on, was the zebra stripes on the sides.
 ...and the black stripes around the doors.
I put pink stripes with the black, and added some of the same wrapping paper that I used on the desk, with Modge Podge.

{Edited in after: LMBO....just saw now for the first time...Hubby in the background with just a towel around his waist! Luckily it was the big towel. ;-)  }

Added dots for the inside of the top, and a smaller zebra stencil for the top front.
Wild enough for you?......

 A wild look for a wild child...
 The room is done and will be revealed shortly.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

  1. SUzanne this room is turning out FABULOUS. I LOVE the zebra and hot pink, that is so awesome, and the stenciling you did on the walls, or is that vinyl, how fun.

    I am FEATURING this on my facebook page, and adding to my pinterest -- COOL ROOMS board. :)
