Girl's Room: Aqua Blue & Red

This eclectic girl's bedroom was designed for a tomboy. Thrift store finds, antiquing and fabulously new products make for a very cool girl's room. Paint color is Benjamin Moore Jamaican Aqua. Designer LAKBdesign

this was a boring brown consignment shop piece -- i just painted it in semigloss in the same color as the walls (benjamin moore's jamaican aqua), painted the shelves glossy black, and pasted wrapping paper to the back . . . makes a sweet cabinet for a preteen girl. (lynn-anne)
