girl's room - mini re-do...

While P was away for a week with her grandparents, I gave her room a little mini-redo.


Here's my inspiration...

I like the neutral, muted colors with pops of raspberry.





Love the white chandy, tissue poms and white furniture.






Casual with lots of layering on the bed.



I have always loved these pinwheel quilts - but have never had the patience for quilting. Look at the old door repurposed as a nightstand - so cute and original!



Soooo girly! Love the coverlet and headboard!




Again with the pom/lantern inspiration.




And here's P's new room. A new quilt from Home Goods for $22:





Raspberry spray paint - $4:






...turned an old nasty Ikea chalkboard...
...into this:




Some tissue poms hanging above the bed (tutorial here):



And here's the final product:


We've made a couple of changes since these pics were taken. The name letters are now sitting on a ledge shelf above her bed (in the same spot). And of course it's a lot messier now!

Some days she gives it the thumbs-up, other days she gives it the thumbs-down. But I know she's just being sassy. I know she loves it! :)
