My baby is growin' up. On Black Friday, we will hit the double digits.
In our last house, I told her she could pick whatever color she wanted for the walls.
She chose hot pink.
As in Barbie.
I didn't mind. It was her room, and I gave her what she wanted.
In this new house, she was ready to be done with the pink.
At first she wanted a Paul Frank themed room. Apple green and orange. But as we started shopping, she saw something that was so her- and I agreed!
Rock and roll chick!
Here's what her room looked like in it's blank canvas state:
Her room was the first to get some color on the walls.
She chose Crystal Aqua from Valspar to match her new bedding:
And then we kind of came to a standstill on the decorating. But this last spring she decided that more of her toys could go into the playroom. We bought a desk for her since homework is becoming more a part of school. She's an avid writer as well, so it just made sense.
Before we moved a lot of the toys out, I took some before pictures.
No staging went into what you are about to see.
The new wall color really brightened the room. This was the pre-toy move stage...
And Bella's fluffy buns made the photo! :)
So, this was the intermediate stage....
After the toy move, we made a new canopy for her bed.
We moved her bed to the other side of the room, out of the alcove.
Her new desk went into that spot.
I purchased several yards of fabric, and bought two cafe rods in bronze.
I attached one rod to the wall next to the ceiling, and the other rod to the ceiling.
It comes out just far enough to create a little canopy over her bed.
Everything still felt a little unfinished, but it was one of those rooms that I had to sit on
for awhile and let the ideas come.
Now, after consulting my "client" and discussing some ideas, we have been moving ahead on getting her room completed! I am super excited to show you the results!
After I finish up some cute rock and roll inspired wall art, add some curtain panels with some creative tie backs, and replace some wall shelves, I will have the big reveal!
I know this is a bit of a teaser, but you're just gonna have to wait! ;)
