Sharing some pictures from our Girls Room Redesign today. This has been a project in the work for months (last fall). Then, a few months before I actually took the pictures, ha!
I love the combination of white and gold – a perfect touch for a girls room that’s transitioning from a toddler room to a big girl room. 🙂
Big Girl Room Redesign-
Elizabeth Rose is 8 and Abigail Lily is 4. I was trying to go with a room redesign that would be great for them as they get older and I won’t have to do any major changes for a while. I could just add a touch of a color and it would be enough.
I love the combination of white and gold. It’s so fresh and makes the room feel so spacious. Originally, I just had the white and gold without the polka dots, it felt just a bit “too grown up” so when I ordered the polka dots and added them, I love the look it gives. Takes it from an overly teenage room and feels just right.
I got the metal bed head frame from Overstock. I was a bit nervous about purchasing it because I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to paint it. But, I did and LOVE the way it came out. This is the gold spray paint I used here.
This is the bed skirt I purchased. It’s a beautiful bed skirt that would go with any bed set.
The furniture we purchased was from IKEA. Very afford and the quality was very impressive. Yes, it’s a bit annoying to put it together but was worth the savings. I then just took the drawer nobs and spray painted them as well, using this paint. Loved the new look with the gold nobs.
The mirror was a simple black mirror that I also painted with the same gold paint, I believe I got it at Target or Walmart. I had some serious difficulties with it, but, it still looks rather cute (my little one wanted her fingerprints on the freshly painted sides ;)..).
I got the desk at IKEA as well. The legs were white and I spray painted those as well. I was going to initially get this desk here. Very cute, modern and chic. This is the desk chair I ordered. I love it. It’s oversized and really comfortable. I also just spray painted the legs to match the rest of the gold touches.
I got the glass shelves at IKEA as well and just spray painted them. Love how cute they are.
I had a few “BEFORE” pictures but they were on my phone and it crashed so all of my pictures are gone. Anyhow, we had a tan carpet in there before (that was like 12 years old) and tan walls. Very old fashion and oh so boring – screaming, please redesign.
The pillowcases were a favorite project. I went to a fabric store and purchased the gold sequence material and the shiny gold material. Then, all I did was used a fabric adhesive and made the pillowcases that way. Super easy peasy and you’d never know I didn’t use a sewing machine. (This will be our little secret).
