My Daughter's Room

I think my favorite part of looking at other blogger's sites is when they have a button where you can tour their home. I could look at all the beautiful homes for hours if I had the time. I've been decorating my home slowly, one room at a time, to make it "our" home and not just a cookie cutter house.


I'm not entirely done with my daughter's room but I thought I would share it with you.
Here is a picture I ran across on www.tidystuff.com and it was some of my inspiration for my daughter's room. I realize her room looks nothing like this, but we work on a budget! Most of the decor in her room came from a thrift store.


I purchased both of her dressers from Craigslist and repainted them with Duck Egg Blue Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

Yes, I realize the TV is an eye sore, but I wanted to show you what the real room looks like.


The bedspread I found at Big Lots. The bed frame used to be a dark chocolate brown and I repainted it in Old White Chalk Paint and added some appliques. The curtains were a thrift store find. It was really a small miracle, I thought I'd attempt to sew curtains but found these instead for $2- you can't beat that price. Plus, I'm horrible at sewing.

The mirror I also found at the thrift store for under $5. It was originally gold, which wasn't so bad but wasn't right for her room. I painted it in Old White and it reminds me of the Snow White mirror. Perfect for a girl's room.

My husband built the under-the-bed storage for me out of old pallets and I painted them. It holds a lot of her toys. Speaking of toys, I'm sure I'll get around to painting her toy box at some point in time. I'm also on the lookout to put a small bedside table between her little pink chair and bed where I can put her teacup lamp.  My husband made the teacup lamp but I have yet to finish covering the lamp shade to spruce it up.


I feel like I need to make sure you know we do have books in her room. She has a whole bookcase full off them in her closet. We always pick up several used books while we out finding treasures at the thrift store.


Here is a thrift store painting that my husband can't stand, I kind of like it and hung it up today just to drive him crazy :) Anyway, there it is, I love it and I hope you do too.  I will have a new dresser redo to show you guys soon, so keep an eye out for that.

  4. Hi! I love how you redid (and will be doing more of) your daughter's room. I have an extra bed that I have in one guest room that sort of resembles yours. I think I would love it better if it was painted off white or another ASCP color. I love how your husband did the pallets for the underneath storage and I love the addition of the rope pulls. Very nice!

    I am following you...hopefully you will visit me as well and follow.
