Today’s flip is likely the beginning of my favorite re-do’s for the whole month. If there was any way to describe my sister’s heart to you, this post might scratch the surface. She has a heart for those fighting disease, the hurting, for the needy and for young college kids just starting their life. This post shows her heart for the latter. I am flipping out today because I can’t wait to hear how a young guy reacts to a brand new dorm room. A room full of furniture – purchased, painted and furnished by my sister and a few other parents.
My niece is a sophomore in college and befriended a young man through her local church. He has been a great friend to her and has become a prayer warrior for their family. Through another friend, it was discovered that this young prayer warrior has been sleeping on a mattress on the floor of his dorm room since the beginning of the semester. Well, my sweet sister would have no part of that! She spent the last 3-4 days going to estate sales, yard sales, shopping on Craigslist and thrift stores, to furnish this young man a bedroom. Don’t you just love her?
It gives me great pleasure to share this flip with you over the next few days. He knows nothing about this, so there are no pictures of his dorm room before, but I hope to have all the pictures after the room is finished.
Here is the first of the flips for a prayer warrior’s bedroom… I had this lamp that we are no longer using and wanted to give it a more masculine feel.
So I purchased some twine to use just like my sister did on her Utensil Crock. A simple addition with a spool of gray and cream twine and a hot glue gun, led to this flip.
She also found some bedding ($28) that had red, gray, black and cream as the color scheme. So this should make a nice lamp for the bedside table.
And here is a sneak peak of the furniture she is fast and furiously getting ready for the move to college.
The dresser ($100) is primed and ready for paint.
Hardware is painted.
The twin headboard ($15) has been remodeled. It had cannonball shaped finials that were removed to keep this headboard looking masculine. It’s been sanded and is also ready for paint.
There’s no way to know exactly what this young man has been praying for other than my sister’s family. But as they say, God works in mysterious ways. Some prayers don’t even have to be verbalized.
