Girls Room Makeover
This is it, the girls room makeover is complete! My granddaughters are only 3 and 4, but they know what they like, and they like it. In fact, they like it quite a lot! More important, this has become a room that is complete, decorated and welcoming to any guests! I do love styling kid’s rooms because you can have so much fun with them, going a little “over the top”. In the past couple of weeks I showed you how I made headboards with hollow core doors and my no-sew dust ruffles for this room, but today I wanted to share the entire look together!Do your projects also look like this when you are in the middle of them? Here are all of the fun linens piled on one of the twin beds, waiting to be ironed, steamed or just unwrapped and have the chance to dress up the beds. This room was a very light blue when it was a Nautical Nursery but it got a fresh coat of paint, the color is Irish Spring by Benjamin Moore. The white shelf was an online bargain I bought back when I turned the room into a nursery. The shelf is very sturdy and very heavy but attached securely to the wall should little monkeys think they can hang on it! Linens from Pottery Barn Teen were the inspiration for this girls room makeover. Instead of staying all pastels, I liked the addition of black and white and a pop of gold. This is a room these girls can be happy with for years and years and won’t feel “babyish”. This was a photo taken before the dust ruffles when on. This is a small bedroom, but as a guest room, it is more than adequate. The cubbies between the beds serve as toy storage. The cubbies are pink with gold dots, from Target’s Pillowfort collection, a perfect mix with the gold-dot bedspreads. The gold crown pillows came from Target and the black and white pillows and rug came from Ikea. The rest of the linens are all from the Emily & Meritt collection from Pottery Barn Teen. The little white pineapple lamp was relocated from my office. Each girl has a gold frame featuring their initial in pink above their bed. These are those fun Ikea frames I use all of the time! You can’t beat the price!
If you are looking for fun and stylish linens, I can’t say enough good about the Emily & Meritt collection at Pottery Barn!!
One of the simplest additions to the room is this trio of golden pineapples. These were so easy, and a bargain! I spotted these wooden pineapples that I think were supposed to be cutting boards in Spot’s Playground at Target for $3 each! A little gold paint dressed them right up! This girls room makeover is a success and these girls are so happy with their new digs!
