Teen Bedroom redo

Megan has finally grown out of her bunk desk. We have loved having it and it has provided a ton of storage so I have been pretty reluctant to redo it and take the bed out of her room. This year she turned 13 and I figured that I should make the move and get her a new bed. Only problem was we couldn't just get a new bed, we had to do the entire bedroom. The first thing that we had to do was the ceiling. We have popcorn ceiling in our house so as we redo rooms, we have scrapped off the ceiling and made it smooth. Next up was the floor, we have a lot of wood floor sitting out in our garage so we went ahead and used it on her room. She had carpet in there that was absolutely disgusting.
After talking with Megan she told me she wanted her room to be pink and some blue. Well we really wanted it to be a teenage room so we went with Coral and turquoise. This is the material that we found at Hobby Lobby and used as our base colors.
The only other requirements for the room were a desk and a chair. The chair was a pretty specific kind, we used the desk that was in her room previously. I think that it turned out very nice and she loves it. She is always in her room now.
The main thing that I wanted was if she wanted to change the colors that it would be pretty easy. We went with a white bedspread and then had matching pillows made.
My mom made the coral pillow with material that we bought at Joann's. I really like it. Then we had her cover the lamp shade with the same material. The end table we found at a thrift store, bonus was that it was already painted the color we needed. The Wake up and Be Awesome sign was done by my mom and Ashley. It is out of pallet boards and then framed. The most awesome thing about the room is the light.
Mini chandelier spray painted with coral. I must admit here that I didn't want to put this in the room, but my decorating partner disagreed. It is Megan's favorite part. Because this post is so full of pictures come back again and I will have another post with her closet
