Good Wednesday afternoon friends. The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy!! I honestly haven’t had the time or energy to get over here and share with you all and for that I am so sorry. We have been in birthday and project mode pretty hard these last two weeks but I am so excited to finally show y’all our baby girl’s ‘big girl’ room reveal!!!
Here is what her room use to look like. When we first moved in… Dark, dingy and with a lavender ceiling.
Here is what her room looks like now…….
This room makeover is full of DIY projects and I loved every one of them. Even though some took several hours/days, they were still fun and so worth it! I found her bedding at Target and I instantly fell in love with it. I knew I wanted her walls to be a neutral color so that I could add splashes of color from her bedding around the room. I chose to use Behr Silver Marlin for the top half of her walls and Behr Simply White for the bottom half and the trim. I love these two colors together!!
Her bed is an antique bed that we have had for almost 5 years now. I had plans to turn it into a swing for our front porch but I couldn’t resist adding it to this girly room! I painted it using Repurpose paint in Crisp Linen. The chandelier and M were both purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used craft paint to paint the M and just added flowers to match her bedding.
The pom pom garland was a DIY (I’ll share how I made it in another blog post soon) and the painted globe was one I had bought awhile ago from Tjmaxx and was no longer using. I again used the craft paint and created flowers to match the bedding. These were such simple projects that add so much to this little space!!
Her dresser was a $7 auction find flip. We removed the top, added wood slats, stained, painted and found cute hardware from Hobby Lobby!! The painting was a DIY and I will also be sharing how I created this. It was time consuming but I love it so much and it was so fun to create for our little M.
I knew when I was designing her little room in my head that I wanted her to have a little reading corner. Our girls LOVE to read so I love creating little spaces for them to hang out with a book. Not only do I have a goal to make our home cozy but I also have a goal to create spaces for our children of their own that they feel safe and comfortable in. The little white rocking chair is from Tjmaxx, the pillow is made from fabric I found at Hobby Lobby. Both of the unicorns are from Target, the shelves are actually spice racks from Ikea and the frame I found for $1 and painted to match her bedding.
This little make over may have taken some extra time and effort but it was so worth it. Y’all know I love trying to create things on my own, DIY’s are kind of my thing so I had a blast in this room! Our little girl loves everything about it and still two weeks later she’s so excited to sleep in her big girl room. And that makes my heart happy!! Her 3rd birthday was a success!
Thank you all so much for joining me today! I’ll be back Friday with a Friday IG recap and we are right in the middle of our MAJOR master makeover so stay tuned for that!
