Big Girl Bedroom

My two youngest girls are only 15 months apart and have always enjoyed sharing a room together. Fortunately, the room is big enough for two full size beds. I adored the bedroom that they shared together! However, recently they decided that they each wanted their own room. I moved one of the full sized beds into our "extra" bedroom for one of the girls, then re-painted and re-decorated the other room (the one below) into something really special.

Here is a BEFORE shot: And here are the afters:

The chaise lounge below doesn't exactly work in this room, but I tried to make it work by removing the existing trim and gluing some blue ribbon along the bottom edge. The raw silk blue pillow was a steal for 50 cents at a yard sale. The blue throw hides marker and glitter glue that are at the foot of the chair.

I love this room as much as my little girl does! I must confess, however, that just about every idea for this room came straight from Janell at Isabell & Max Rooms. I was in love with her daughter's "Dream Bedroom", and Janell was generous enough to list all of her sources and even her paint color! Lucky me!
Stay tuned and I'll post pics of my other daughter's "big girl" room.


  1. This room is to beautiful for words! LOVE it! I'm getting ready to do my daughters room, so this gives me lots of inspiration!
