DIY IKEA MIRROR MAKEOVER

DIY, Home Blog Posts, Our Beach House, PaintingAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! You have been sharing so much amazing feedback on the Beach House Vacation Rental! I'm so glad it is inspiring you to plan a trip with some girlfriends, because it really is a special time to connect and recharge. :-)

Back when I shared our Master Bedroom Makeover plan, I didn't include two things in the design board.  One was a dresser that we already had (I had previously painted it Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite with Dark Wax) and am almost done making over into a classic coastal white beauty. More on that makeover soon!

Today's DIY makeover post is all about the other item, an IKEA Songe mirror (no longer sold). The original finish was a silver which we spray painted gold for my daughter's bedroom makeover.  Now that the mirror was moved into our bedroom, I wanted to give it an update since we were going for a casual coastal, but sophisticated vibe.

Here's how it turned out and I have to say I am so in love with it!

The process was simple, layering a couple of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors using a dry brush technique. That is one of my favorite finishes to get a beach coastal look. 

 

To get the look I used:

Purdy Cub Angle Brush

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pure White

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen

Annie Sloan Clear Wax

220 Grit Sandpaper

I love how the gold from the previous makeover is peeking through! One of my favorite color mixes is gray and gold. I'm pretty happy with the details when you look close!

Beach House Vacation Rental in the Pacific Northwest

BedroomAnneke McConnell

Hey there friends! Before diving into today's post, I wanted remind you it's the LAST DAY of the One Kings Lane Anniversary Sale. Now some sites have sales every weekend, or maybe rotate what they have on sale, but One King's Lane is one of those sites that RARELY goes on sale.

They have such beautiful quality furniture and home decor. This outdoor lantern is a favorite!

ONE KINGS LANE SALE FAVES

Now onto today's fun post! It has now become tradition that my sister and I, along with any other women who need a mini retreat, plan a girl's weekend getaway at least two times per year.

For just 3 days and 2 nights, somewhere within a couple hours of home, there are more than enough options to choose from here in the Seattle area.

For our most recent getaway, we found a quaint little beach house north of Seattle, WA in the Coupeville area.  It was a little ironic since Coupeville had just been featured in a recent article of Coastal Living magazine I had read - my monthly happy mail!

If you have yet to plan a trip like this, I can't recommend it enough! Find someone to take the kids for the weekend, and make it happen to get away for a bit. We typically search sites like VRBO, Homeway, and Airbnb, and found this vacation rental home on VRBO. When we split the cost, it's such an affordable mini vacation!

I do have to be upfront though......I went into this trip planning to simply relax and reflect on personal and business goals, map things out, etc. and stay off of my phone and social media completely.  NO WORK. Eek!

I wasn't planning to take photos with my Canon DSLR, but once we got there I was kicking myself for not bringing it. The house and property are so incredibly beautiful and I could hardly resist taking photos and videos with my iPhone, which obviously won't do it justice.

BUT, I'd rather share what photos I do have though, for those of you looking for a place to vacation at in the Pacific Northwest! 

Here it is! A beautiful, no-bank waterfront beach house with unobstructed 180 degree views!

This bedding is so beautiful in person! The material feels wonderful and not scratchy at all!

Here is the second bedroom off of the living, dining, and kitchen space. It has the cutest loft area set up for older kids!

***I apologize this is so blurry! I wanted you to get the idea of it though if you're looking for a place to stay in the Seattle region with kids!

I thought all of the details like the simple styling in this white cabinet, not to mention the cremone bolt, the guest book, and beautiful globe chandelier were all so beautiful and made the entire home feel so special and inviting.

I loved all of the turquoise accents throughout the little cottage. I wish I knew where these mugs were from, because they are so cute! Each one has a different coastal animal and word. :-)

The house is literally the last one on the street and on "the point". We definitely took some walks along the beach during our stay here.

Here is a quick video of our first time walking into the house and seeing the home. :-)

You can see more photos of the house along with booking info. HERE.

 

I have a feeling we'll be rebooking this place over the years, hopefully for some quick trips away with family and friends too!

Beach House Master Bedroom Progress

Bedroom, Coastal InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! The Beach House Master Bedroom Project is moving along quickly and I'm excited to share the final AFTER soon! The plan has changed a bit since I first shared the edesign plan we were going for - you can see the original plan HERE.

Our bedding has arrived from Serena & Lily (on major sale right now!), and I'm so excited about their linen duvet cover and shams - nothing says beach house like linen, right? 

Also, after reading more reviews of the original desk we chose, many people said the color was very different from the photo, so I switched it up and went with this pretty white writing desk (also acting as a nightstand). Needless to say, I.LOVE.IT!!!! It fits our space perfectly and is exactly what we need with two small side drawers and a center laptop tray drawer.

More to come soon, but here are some "not so perfect" progress shots!

 

 

I couldn't have done all of this installing of window shades and curtains without my husband Michael!  He has been a HUGE help! Thanks babe!

 

 

We also got one of my favorite affordable traverse rods installed on all of the four windows.  It takes a bit of extra time, but pinching the hooks closed before mounting the rod on the wall is well worth the effort in the long run - I'm saying that from experience of them sliding out easily!

 

SHOP THE LOOK

 

We're still waiting on a handful of items to arrive like our new bed, but I'll keep you posted as it comes together! Thanks for stopping by today!
