Hi everyone! I am so excited to show you the girl’s bedroom makeover I did on Little’s side of the room! I hadn’t done anything to their room since 2010 and they are growing up and wanting something fun and bright. I also needed a color scheme that would work for both Little and Oldest. Their room was first done in 2010 when we had all three kids in there! It was great because I could see how the walls looked, and I even used it on her night stand to see if I wanted to paint it a contrasting color or not. I used SW 6478 Watery on the nightstand and decided on SW 7004 Snowbound for the walls. Then I decided on SW 6613 Lei Flower for the small accent colors. I also decided to swap out her headboard, and I wanted to see how a gold-ish color would look. It was really fun to change up their room and go for color! And, I was the bigger momma and put my design ideas to the side, and I let Little pick out her own bedspread. Sometimes when you think about design and decorating all of the time it’s hard to give up a bit of control. But, it is her room, so I gave her the bedspread. :)Here is the “before” from 4 years ago.
Isn’t it fun?!!! The walls were painted in the SW 7004 Snowbound for a neutral backdrop, which is a nice white with a tiny bit of grey. It was a good start because, to be honest, I had to put my foot down. They kept arguing about colors, and one wanted this and the other wanted that and one wanted big stripes and then polka dots, and finally I said, “That’s it!” White. It’s going to be White. Then we can add as much color in other ways we want! Done!
I put a fun poster print on a foam core display frame. She picked out her bedspread and I added the pillow from an Etsy shop. I’ll give you guys all of the resources in a later post.
The arrow curtains were plain white ones I had hand-stamped with gold paint. I love how bright and fun they look.
And I LOVE the headboard. It’s an antique one I found at the flea market for $40 last year. It received a golden makeover with spray paint. I love how it just makes it so modern.
And the nightstand was painted with SW 6478 Watery and got some new knobs.
And the lamp we already had. I painted it with the accent color and used a honeycomb stencil to revamp her plain white lampshade.I love how it turned out, and it was so fun to be able to really give Little a new space. She loves it. She told me she’s going to keep it clean all of the time now. Riiiiiigggght. We are still working on Oldest’s. You know how Tweens are. 🙂
