Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Girls just wanna have fun or at least a pretty and inviting exercise room.  Let's be honest if it is not inviting the chance of using it greatly decreases.

The desk I am debating on painting it chocolate brown, I think white would be to much.  Anyone have a suggestion?

This is actually one of the old wood framed windows that came out of the house, some hot pink paint, pretty ribbon and wall talk.  We used double sided tape to add the ribbon to the glass.

The green door was the door to the basement, very small door so I thought I would use as my towel holder.  Just added some feet and a coat hook.  I have the old handle that I need to spray paint and add back on to cover the holes.

I actually painted the room last year, the door and the final trim around the door was added this past week.  The doors are the original from the house, they needed some TLC and a fresh coat of paint.  Of course new handles and hinges.

The second hand lamp I got from kijiji.

The view from the window of the river, frozen today!

What the room looked like in the beginning.  The house did have fire and smoke damage, and was gutted and completely redone.  When we first painted the room it was yellow then I decided to change it to the soft pink color it is now. 
I hope you enjoyed checking out my exercise room, maybe it will inspire you like it does me to go exercise!
Have a wonderful day.
