Phew! You guys, I FINALLY got my daughter’s big girl bedroom finished and photographed. Well mostly finished, I still want to put a rug in here, but I can’t find one I like yet, and I couldn’t wait any longer to share.
Oh and special thanks to little man for working on potty training this week, I never would have finished up this room without his hours of sitting on the potty which happens to be across the hall from his sister’s room…major multi-tasking this week :)
So you remember this room makeover all started with my obsession with this wallpaper….
and then my “Fancy Nancy” loving girl decided she needed a “princess canopy” to go with all those flowers. Tutorial coming soon.
And what self respecting 6 year old, soon to be 1st grader, doesn’t have a homework desk in their room?
A place to contemplate all those site words and ask herself the really deep philosophical questions in life like “Do you really like green eggs and ham?”…and “why did the chicken cross the road?”
You can check out all the details here on how I turned a $10 old school desk into her glammed up crafting space.
We didn’t always see eye to eye on everything in her room, like this vintage looking clock (Hobby Lobby)…
“What’s with this clock? It has dirt on it?!” :)
She did however agree that every girl should have a birdcage filled with gold flying butterflies in her room. This is the birdcage that used to be in my living room, it didn’t work in there anymore with the new paint color (that I have still yet to show you) so I painted it white and love it in here instead.
I found the butterflies 1/2 off after Easter at Michaels. They were these neon glitterfied things that I’m sure my girlie would have loved, but I spray painted them gold before she got the chance to see them.
My girlie has a zillion kids magazines and paperback easy readers, so I picked up these organizers at Ikea (same trip I picked up my tarva hack dressers). They were green and silver and didn’t really work in here, so again I hit them with some spray paint.
She is still attached to her pink tissue paper pom poms from her 3rd birthday party so those stayed put.
Ok and the next 2 photos, I just can’t…
look how old she has gotten!! I asked her if I could take her picture in her new room –
“Sure, I’ll pretend to be really relaxed in here mom, or no wait I’ll use my serious face, because I’m concentrating hard on reading this book!” :)
and here she is in her old room about 18 months ago –
What happened to my little pre-school baby?
If you want to check out her old room you can see it here, it’s still my number one most popular post, but I hope you like the new version too. I know she sure does…
Although she just asked me if we can paint her walls purple and throw glitter at them sooo apparently ADD decorating is a genetic thing…
