Sloane’s Big Girl Room

 

pink and green girls room

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 bassinet set she had.  I just tied it around the table and covered it with the pink topper, and 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.

This little plate hangs by her door, I got it at a gift shop and just love it.

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi! I just found you through Wow Us Wednesday and this room is absolutely darling! We are making the transition to “big girl” room in our house too so this really struck a chord. I’m loving this blog! My sister and I blog together and we would love to have you stop over and say ‘hi’ sometime! :-)

  5. Hi! Found you blog hopping tonight! Love this sweet room, and I, too, am about to take down a crib that has been up for almost 10 years! I bought Target’s pink shabby chic bedspreads for twin beds…beds that I’d love to look like yours. What color is the paint, did you paint her bed? I am looking to do pink, cream, brown. Love your table topper, too.
    Blessings,
    Amanda

    • Amanda, I did paint her bed, and its just off the shelf white from home depot in a semi-gloss topped with poly. I will do a post on the bed soon, because I have some before and afters. I love Target’s Shabby Chic! I can’t wait to see what you do.

  6. I’m SO glad my girls have not seen this blog post …because then they would be begging me to make their room like this one!!! And I don’t need the pressure!!

    Ha ha.

    Seriously, that is one gorgeous girls room! Very pretty. We actually have a very similar paint color on the walls in our girls’ room — so it’s a start :)

  7. Such a lovely room! I have the opposite problem. I have 2 girls, and have no idea what it would be like to decorate for a little boy! :) I love the wall color, and her bedding is so pretty!

    Thank you so much for linking up with my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. :) Have fun finding a new blog friend or two, and I hope you’ll visit Serenity Now again soon. :)

  8. I love the table. How creative that you made such a pretty room with so many repurposed things or bought on the cheap. Thanks for sharing this sweet room with us. BTW, I understand that you are sick of green, but I think it works great with what you’ve done!
