Remember back in 1988 when I showed a sneak peak of what I was doing in my daughter’s room? Well, here it is 21 years later, and I’m finally ready to show you. Here’s what her room looked like before.
I loved her room. Loved it. But she needed a more sturdy bed, and she wanted something that guests could sleep on. With a new bed comes new walls, I guess.
I’m so thankful to Jennifer over at The Magic Brush. She gave me some tips about paint and told me the key was good brushes. Boy was she right. They made a world of difference! Thank you, Jennifer!
Luckily, I kept my accent colors the same, so I didn’t have to overhaul too many accessories. I did, however, buy this little ballerina for $7 at TJMaxx. I had to paint her, but she sure is pretty.
Remember when I purchased the fabric swatches from Etsy? Well, I finally put them to use. I love the splash of color.
Of course, one of the highlights for my daughter is the new trundle. Her brother’s gotten the most use out of it, but I’m sure that’ll change someday. Until then, they have “sleepovers” and giggle until we yell at them.
The pink (reversible) quilt is by Pottery Barn. I purchased it off of Ebay about two years ago. The green one was $20 at Marshall’s. Perfect!
I used some leftover wall paint for the top of her table and spray painted her chairs. Notice the missing spindle in the chair? Guess who ate that? Grrr.
There you have it. A wonderful compromise between my 7-year old who would have loved purple glittered walls and pink fur pillows and me who would have loved toile and ruffles.
Oh, one last thing. I am fully aware of the “flood curtains”. I was confident that I had bought 95” panels—confident! I steamed them, hung them, and laughed out loud. Oops. Don’t worry. I’ll fix it, and I’ll show you how.
