Updating the Girls' Room


 

Hi friends!

The last few weeks I've been working hard at re-doing the girls room.  We switched their room out last year when we did our big home addition so that they'd have a bit more space.  We promised that we'd let them pick their room color, but it took us almost a year to make it happen. (Maybe, just maybe because we hoped they'd grow to love the yellow walls that were already there.) The girls were determined though.  PINK.  It had to be PINK.

We ended up going with a light pink that I actually really like.  It's Benjamin Moore's Pink Bliss.

After the walls, my first project was making a canopy for Ellie's bed.  I'm excited to say that the tutorial is up today at Make It and Love It!  It includes a full tutorial, plus a free template for how to make the birds.  While I love the canopy, I also love the fact that these birds could be used in so many different ways.  You could make a mobile out of them, hang them from the ceiling, or even put them in a vintage birdcage!

The curtains you see in the back of the canopy pictures are these curtains.  They are black out curtains (something I think is totally essential come summertime!)  A lot of lightly colored black out curtains don't work that well, but I think these are pretty good.

Then it was on to planning the rest of the room.  I made my own version of wall art, with a quote from Winnie the Pooh.  You'll see it is a fabric wall hanging....I made the design in photoshop, printed it out on fabric, and then mounted it to a piece of fabric.






The floral "wallpaper" is actually my own design that I uploaded to Spoonflower to print out as wrapping paper.  I used these glass knobs and the paper to decopage an old dresser that I had as a kid. I'm afraid that I'll have to redo this project though.  I just my paper incorrectly (so that the drawers line up...) and I didn't get all the bubbles out. So I think I need to order some more paper and redo it.  But here's a quick picture anyway.


Sign.  Sometimes projects don't work out.  But at least some of them did!


A lot of the details from their room are still the same.  You might remember the rag quilt that I made ages ago, the house pillow, the under the bed drawers and the butterflies that I stuck randomly on the walls.


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little peak inside my kids' room!  Redo-ing their room is always so much fun!

Hope you all are having a great week!!!

XOXO,

Jill

    1. Hi Kerry! I updated the link. They are available on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/2dPqvsk ....I love them! They are heavy and block out the light pretty well. I bought the sky blue color.
