Beach Cottage Room

Sharing pictures of my daughter's new "Beach Cottage Room."
Isn't it amazing how much a little bit of paint changes things?!
We did 3 walls white and one light blue accent wall.
I was going for a light, airy, vacation beach house feel ---- and that's exactly what it feels like everytime I walk in there.
We kept the decorations to a minimum -- keeping things plain and simple. 
We found the lamp at a thrift store for $2 -- the sign at Goodwill, and a few things at Dollar General. 
 
The same day we found the lamp we also found these shadow box frames (at another thrift store).
I used images from a couple Raspberry Roads digital kits (that were on sale at the time) to make the pictures in the frames.
I also made a sea themed wreath for one wall.

WOW!! I absolutely love how it turned out!

I see what you were talking about with the accent wall now. It makes a lot more sense to see it in action.

That lamp is the best find *ever*.

So, any tips about painting those types of walls?

I can't wait to see this in person!

Such a peaceful room! I live on Long Island with lots of beachy shops, and you have made such lovely decor pieces that would cost a pretty penny here for sure. Love the color of the accent wall.
