Blogger Stylin’ Home Tour {My Favorite Room}

by Chris on August 28, 2014

Happy Thursday and welcome to those of you coming from My Fabuless Life!! I’ll come back later to explain my recent absence (life just gets in the way sometimes, eh?), but today I’m happy to be a part of Lindsay’s Blogger Stylin’ Home Tour blog hop! Great idea, right? 

I chose my daughter’s room for two reasons. 1. It’s my favorite. 2. It’s the most completed room in the house. It’s one of the only rooms I never wavered on. I knew the look I wanted, she loved it as much as I did, and we dove in head first! 

Blue girls room

I have a resource list of items that can be found here, but the DIY tree mural is still our favorite. It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to do, so I’m glad Little One hasn’t asked me to paint over it yet. She’s just gonna have to like the tree for a while longer. Mama says.

And the closet? I had a bar in my closet when I was her age. I hung clothes on it. The end. 


It’s Closetmaid shelving, and it’s a huge success. She does “almost” as well as I’d like her to when it comes to organizing it and keeping it tidy. I’m a purger. She is not.

This repainted china cabinet with a secret secretary has received plenty of attention from her. It was a Craigslist find for $60. Well worth every minute of painting it.

Her tweeniness is starting to seep into the decor just a bit. No more Cinderellas or fairy statues. Just peace signs and disco balls. Poor me.

Speaking of poor me, what 12-year old has a jewelry collection like this? I’m not quite prepared for this little fashionista she’s growing into, but at least the girl has good taste, eh?


One constant at least has been the DIY bookshelves I built for her. The books look a little different, but she does love it! As long as she’s reading, I’m a happy mom.

Thanks for taking a little tour with me today! Are you ready for a ton more beautiful spaces? Well, your next stop most definitely needs to be Retro Ranch Reno! Have fun!

What a perfect transitional space for your gal. The colors are amazing! …and that jewelry collection, you are certainly in trouble my friend ;)

I love the color combo in this room! I would have killed to have a space like this when I was young. The repurposed china cabinet is amazing!

Her room has always been one of my favorites. I think it’s the unexpected rug that I love so much with all of it, too. Pretty, pretty space my friend. Hope she is feeling better about her classes and the schedule. And if you need a drippy cake anytime soon, let me know. I got it covered.

OH. MY. GOD. I would love to have a room like this one! The color palette is lovely! If I had a room like this, I’d never want to leave. Ever. I’m not even kidding!

Awwh. Really beautiful. It’s so vibrant and sunshine-y :D
We’re making a house too. I will definitely have to show my parents to make a room so pink and cute like this one eventhough I’m 19 lol

This is my 8 y/o’s favorite room in all of Pinterest blue rooms. I’m getting up on a ladder soon, I can just feel it. Thanks for the resources!
