I am so happy to finally have the kids' rooms painted! Every time I would go to work on a painting job the kids would ask when I was going to paint their rooms. The mommy guilt was especially bad if I was going to paint a mural for another little girl or boy.
We decided to surprise the kids with new rooms. Here is what we came up with for our little girl...
I know I know, it's a little over the top. I told you, I had mommy guilt! It all started with that blanket on the end of the bed. I found it at Hobby Lobby for 50% off and the little lady fell in love with it. She calls it her cheetah blanket and takes it everywhere.
I found pink sheets and leopard print sheets at Wal Mart... I sewed two of the pink sheets together to make the duvet cover and I used pillow cases for the fabric to make the border on the curtains and the cornice above the bed.
My husband built the cornice and I added all the decorative elements. I found sheer curtains at Hobby Lobby for $3.50 a panel because they were 50% off. It took four panels to get all that drapey-goodness!
I painted the crown headboard right on the wall and I used Martha Stewart Gold Metallic paint
There are actual little gems hot glued onto the wall... we are on day 6 and she hasn't picked one off yet! Woot!
I changed out the polka dot fabric for the leopard sheet fabric... there is a tutorial here for how I originally made the curtains longer.
Here is another way I used the sheets. The panel isn't exactly sewn onto the pillow yet, but you get the picture. Girlie was horrified when the panel fell off the pillow when she went to get into bed the first night.
She loves flowers so I thought, "why not give her her own vase?" The flower bunches were on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $.80 a piece!
The nightstand/bookshelf was from Goodwill and it was painted in the Martha Stewart Metallic paint.
And this simple little piece might be my favorite part of the room.
I just made the design in Illustrator and printed it out on our printer. I spray painted an old frame to match the room.
Here is a printable if you'd like to print one for your little princess.
This is on the outside of her door... I made it with the Silhouette and some adhesive vinyl.
Her favorite part of the room? The bow holder!
And above the bow holder hangs this
What do you think? Do you have a fierce one who'd like a room like this? I'm hoping this will be something she'll like for years to come!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
