Progress Part 2

Here are some more pictures of my daughter's room. I look at it now, and I think about how many things I need to change. But...it's forever changing. I'll bet if I asked you to go through and pick out the cutesy things I'm weeding out, you could probably do quite well. Hint, hint: I used to have her baby clothes hanging from that shelf hook thingy in the corner. Let's just say I'm looking for something new.

I bought the chandelier for $16.00. I had to paint it, of course, and now I need some sparkly beading to hang from it.

Still not a fan of the shams. I'm going to go get a bunch of down pillows--they look so much loftier and fluffier.
And this is the part I'll work on next. I plan on getting baskets to go in the bookshelf cubbies, I need to change the hardware on the dresser, and I will beef up the magnet board over it. In due time...in due time.
This is a frame I made for her. She's getting pretty good at writing her own name, so I framed it. She loves it.
So, it's not quite there yet, but it's coming around. Just around the time I'll get it just right, she'll need a "tween" room!

What a great looking room! I'm twenty and I don't have anything like that. I just love her white bed, that should grow with her well :)

The Berry's Patch said...

Oh to be a little girl again and to have that room. It's so pretty.

Love the beautiful white bed and bedding, LOVE the chandelier (which I've seen lots of people starting to hang the candle ring bead garlands on). The little white dresser is also a beauty. You've got a great pallet to work with. : )

I have the same bookshelf in my daughter's room! Target?? I just redid my daughter's room this past summer. She chose purple paint for the walls, and we changed out the furniture for all white. I also have her name in letters with ribbon above her bed. I'll have to take some pictures soon to show. I've been meaning to do that. I think the room looks great! Love the pink touches. Very cute and girly.

Tanya said...

**sigh** (I want a girl!) I can't wait to see everything finished. Love what you've done so far!

Susie Harris said...

It's looking so sweet! Yep, they do grow up fast. My little one is 8 and she wants another big girl room... not all that baby stuff. ugh! I want to keep her bitty as long as I can. Hope all of yall are feeling better. I had my oldest home yesterday with fever. Today he is still in bed. Lets just say I really cleaned house yesterday. I have a show in a few days... no sickness needed here! Take care my friend~

Marie said...

It's a beautiful room. I love that you framed your daughter's handwriting. What a sweet and good idea!

Mindy said...

So sweet! It looks like a "big girl" room.

michelle {sweet mady's paper} said...

adorable! perfect for a growing girl.

Tara said...

Darling room - love the pink and green! I love the mirror you found - perfect!

You mentioned the "tween room".... I'm getting ready to do that "tween" room for my youngest daughter's room. But I know I'm gonna miss her soft pink, little girl room. They grow up so fast!

the undomesticated wife said...

I bet you could find lots of sparkly beads at the goodwill!

Ashley said...

So Cute! I just love that you framed her own writing of her name. That is just the coolest thing ever!

Moi said...

This is really very cute. I don't have kids yet but this room makes me want to have a little girl to decorate for. I love the colors and all the little sweet details. She's a lucky girl! I want my name hanging from ribbons over my bed!!

Erin said...

How cute! I love the name above the bed! Great job

Shannon said...

It is looking really good! It is so cute!

Prissy Southern Prep said...

I wish this was my room!! haha!

Liz Casstro said...

Girl's rooms are so great to decorate!!! You can do SOO much, and it's so pink. I like the cork board and agree, more pillows would look so comfy and inviting!

Shannon @ Silver Trappings said...

I love your daughter's room! and the fairy is much better dressed in pink sparkles!

Hope you're staying well!

Shannon

Inspired Kara said...

Oh
my
word

One of the cutest girl rooms ever!

Jenny S said...

Same at our house. Just a simple update now that my son is four, but something else always needs to be done!! I love that you framed her name that she wrote! She will always remember that!

Bobbi said...

Wow, that is super cute! My daughter wants her room all pink now instead of all High School Musical. I'll have to take some hints from you.

Barbara said...

How Sweet!!! Just adorable...Love the framed pink mirror. I know Olivia must absolutely think her room is the greatest. What a good mom. The framed "Olivia" in green and white polks dots is too cute. Her penmanship is good. It is all tooo lovely.

Mom

Erin said...

Thanks for posting the "progress." I'm literally in the middle of trying to finish my 4 year-olds fairy tale room and I just might need to incorporate some of your ideas!

SO CUTE!

AndreaLeigh said...

How in the world did you get such perfect circles on your pot? I've tried that before and my circle always look like a hot mess. Love the bedding!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

oh i Love it. I wish my daughter liked pink. I begged her to let me do her room in pink and black or pink and brown and she refused. She's a blue girl all the way.

Sunny said...

Her room looks lovely. Can't wait to see the improvements! I love the pink pom-pom trim on the green pillow.

Jessica said...

I love it, it's the same colors as my Sophia's room. Not that you need any suggestions but since it reminds me of her room you could do a mistreatment on her curtains like I did. I think our curtains started out the same. Just go to my blog and click on window mistreatments. I'll have to steel a few ideas from you. :)

Saucy said...

You have inspired me... tonight I picked up a roll of cheetah print wallpaper at the orange box for Loopy's room, I'm just hanging it on the wall around the funky drapery. Maybe.

Jenny said...

I love it! You are so talented. My daughter's room is over-taken with stuffed animals. Ugh! I have tried to have several mysteriously disappear, but she always knows that they are missing. She loves them all so much. Your color choices are so soft and relaxing.

tidymom said...

Awwww, her room looks GREAT!!! Lucky little girl!!

I love it! The pink mirror is awesome. I am still working on Ms. Sassypant's room. I'm wondering if I will ever get it done at this point. Especially witht the holidays coming. Come over & visit, you've been officially boo'ed. Not that mean kind of boo'ed, the fun Halloween kind! :)

mommy2davin said...

That is such a cute room. Very inspirational if I ever have a girl.
I love your blog!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

How cute is that room?! Love it! Have missed seeing you, so I had to come by and leave a comment. Happy night to you!

Sweet Simplicity said...

I would have loved this room growing up--heck, I would still love to have this room! It is so sweet and adorable! Check out my blog for a great giveaway!

Gordostyle said...

It looks cute! Why is it that we always see what needs to be changed instead of all the stuff we have changed? Darn it anyway! :o)

I love the name thing -- I'm gonna have to steal that one for sure! My son will love it!

Smiles,
Jen

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

Hey Chris, did you happen to see Martha Stewarts show yesterday? Well, she did a piece on a Halloween party that she did. I'm not big into the holiday but this was just amazing what she did. Picture soup served in mini pumpkins, a grim reeper greeting you at the door, an entire green glittered skeleton, and a real barn owl in a giant cage!!! The woman went all out. The best part was her menu cards which were so beautifully done but she had taken a punched out owl and glued it to the top corner of the menu. Check her website or blog. I'm sure there are pix. You'd love it all! Inspiration for next year for sure!

I think Olivia's room is precious. I especially love the chandelier. So pretty!!!

Natalie said...

Beautiful.

And now I know what to do with the funky frame with a small square opening I've never found the right picture for.

Hoorah!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Stephanie said...

Where did you find the chandelier for $16? It looks so cozy and girly. I'm sure she loves it :)
