Girls Room Reno part I

by Gillian

My youngest daughter Charlie started climbing out of her crib when she was 19 months! While she was a pretty good escape artist I was concerned that she would injure herself so I reluctantly made the decision to switch her to a bed. Charlie and my eldest daughter Grace, who will be 5 in May, share a room that was decorated before Grace was born, so of course I wanted to seize the opportunity to redecorate. Grace had been sleeping in a bed that coordinated with the crib since she was 2 1/2  but I wanted something that was more girly that the girls could have for a while. I was going to keep their existing Moda Dressers from Room & Board, a cream colored area rug from ABC carpet that was still in relatively good condition, their modern luca glider, and an Ikea billy bookcase that I had wallpapered on the interior.

I found these Plain High Arch Upholstered Headboards online and that became the starting point for the design

I then came across this fun Pink Chandelier  that I knew would be the main focus of the room. Since we’re in an apartment rental I needed to find something that could be plugged in instead of hardwired into the ceiling

Grace helped me pic this cute bedding from PBteen

And I also ordered these needlepoint heart pillows from PBteen

I found this hot pink mirror to go above the dresser from One Kings Lane

mirrorGrace requested butterflies in her room, so I’ll be working on a custom 3D butterfly project that I’ll share with you soon, as well as an existing storage bench that got new life as a dress up storage solution fit for a princess!

I will have actual photos of the room’s reveal once the curtains, mirror and art are hung, but in the meantime here’s the style board for their room.
