It’s here! The end! I have a real love/hate relationship with these challenges but I always love it when its over. If you’ve missed the update posts (the few I posted), I made over my daughter’s bedroom for her birthday. She just turned ten so I wanted something that reflected her personality and would last well into her teen years.
Here’s where we started…
And here’s the same view after the makeover!
McKenna is a fun-loving, little super-star in the making. We decided to call her style “Glitter Confetti.” Is that a thing? It is now. The confetti wall was our inspiration and starting point.
McKenna is also an avid reader and I’m always finding her books all over the house. I bought a couple of inexpensive crates to house her books and create her own personal library. It also functions as a cute little TV stand for her little TV. I toyed with the idea of hiding the TV for the pictures but decided this was our real life. And we watch TV.
I re-used all the furniture in the room except for the bed. She was begging to go to a twin bed so she would have more open space in her room. But I was afraid she wouldn’t adjust to sleeping on a smaller bed now that she’s accostumed to a full-sized bed. Then I found a full-sized daybed on Amazon that we both loved. Because it allows the mattress to fit against the wall the long way (instead of sticking out into the room) it opened up so much more space. I moved the dresser and chest to different walls all by myself. In other news…I’m headed to the chiropractor tomorrow.
I found a piece of fabric in my stash that fit over the 3 legged table perfectly! And I love the pattern in the room.
The gallery above her bed is one of my favorite things in the room. Those glitter frames are the same ones above her bed before the makeover! We just applied a little modge podge and a lot of glitter and they are fabulous! I love the “Sprinkle Kindness Around Like Confetti” piece too because I’m always asking her if she’s been as kind as she can be…and the theme of the room is confetti! It was a perfect fit!
She found the huge amethyst when we mined for gems on our last road trip.
I’m planning on a separate post with all the sources from the stuff in her room. So stay tuned if you have seen something you loved!
My girl absolutely loves her new room and now she has plenty of room to play with her sisters!
Even when she doesn’t want them around…these pictures totally portray their relationship.
Now summer is almost here and I’m sure this little reading nook will get lots of use!
So what do you think? Do you love it as much as McKenna does? Give it a pin!
