Without a doubt, my daughter’s room is over the top PINK & princess…just with some light green thrown in. Not only do I fall smack in the “girly” girl category, but having had two boys first I went a little overboard when I could FINALLY venture into girl land. Decorating this room was pure joy, and I will be sad to leave it behind when we move in a few months–though I am already looking forward to doing her “next” room.
I will say, I am not sure this room really suits my daughter anymore. She is more “tornado” then “princess” these days with her boundless energy and unstoppable determination but I am clinging to the last little bit of baby girly-ness for as long as I can. Since we fully expected our third child to be a boy (I didn’t dare get my hopes up for a girl–and it was the best suprise EVER) we had painted the room a very nuetral light green to leave all options open.
A few weeks ago the baby crib came down once and for all. I thought I would be sad, but really after having someone in it or coming toward it for almost 10 years its actually refreshing! I am really looking forward to redoing her room in our next house. I actually had wanted to paint this room light blue instead of green (a friend talked me out of it because apparently the rest of my house is already light blue! OK…maybe it is…) but that’s what is coming next. My plan is to keep most of the pink, mix in more white and be done forever with the light green. But for a few more months here is her “big girl” room…
I actually made her table cover and the bottom skirt was from the Pottery Barn Kids Bassinett set she had, I just tied it around the table and covered it with the pink topper, it makes me happy to still be using it. The pink topper fabric is from JoAnn’s and matches the window treatment I also made.
Her bed cost $30 and came from a consignment shop, and the chenille bedding from EBAY. Other embellishments in the room came from many dear friends. In a perfect world, the room would have a chandelier and a rug but since we are moving, that’s going to have to wait till the next room. I can’t wait!
