I have just recently updated my two daughter’s (ages 6&8) room. I kept the walls Revere Pewter because I’m too tired and cheap to paint…let’s be real folks. I separated the white bunk beds to be parallel to each other and got excited for my kids to actually make their beds now (making your bed and bunk beds does not go well together, unless you can afford Bedeez). I fortunately live near a West Elm outlet and bought most of the bedding there. I love color, and I love florals, so I had fun by purchasing the duvet and coverlet for a steal. To personalize it more for each daughter, Jane has Flamingo sheets, and Paisley (of course) has Zebra sheets. The sheet sets were found at Macy’s in the Martha Stewart Collection. The Flamingo is still available here, along with so many other cute novelty print choices. Have fun with your sheets!
I painted an old $60 craigslist mid century dresser about 5 years a nasty yellow I never liked. Now I look back and LOVE the original stain dang it, why did I have to paint it??? To get rid of the nasty yellow I decided to paint it a more neutral color, Affordable Gray, by Sherwinn Williams. I polished the brass handles and it felt fresh again.
Thanks to the new Pillowfort and Threshold line at Target, I accesorized, bringing in the modern feel it was needing.
I love the way the gallery turned out. I found this darling print of the girl laying in the grass at an Etsy boutique in Dallas. It reminded me of Jane. The Zebra watercolor was done by my artistic sister but you can purchase one at Land if Nod. “Oh the Places You’ll Go” gold foil print was purchased from this Etsy shop. The lamp on the dresser was purchased at JC Penny years ago and was part of the Jonathan Adler Collection.
The oversized basket is from Home Goods and holds all the stuffed animals and blankies. Above the basket are hooks from Target and a print found here.
I’m tempted to get a rug to lighted up and ground the space, but financially it was low priority. It really is a small space, so I don’t allow any toys in the room, just stuffed animals. The toys stay in the toy room. Overall I think the updated girls room turned out happy and complete.
