Girls room makeover

Since moving into our new home I have only completed one space. I am so proud of this girls room makeover that I had to share it with you right away.

When I say completed I still have 2 more things to purchase but whose really counting??

Let’s start with the before:

So not really girly! But it has great bones: a large closet and nice window.
Our very dear friend painted the room a light gray and the trim a basic gloss white.

I don’t have a wide angle lens to capture the whole room at once so bare with me.
The after:

pink and coral bedroom makeover

Let’s break things a little.
Her bed we already owned. It’s a actually a bunk bed. Her older sister is using the other bunk until she gets a new bed. We purchased the bunk beds about 8 years ago from Walmart.

The coral bedding I bought off a sale sight. It’s pottery barn kids. you can find a similar bedding here.

Her sheets are from target. The different colors allow us so many options for accents! We found another great sheet set we might purchase as backup.

I found a cool inspiration for her bookcase from The Pleated Poppy’s blog.

A few years ago I added the cute fabric to the back of the bookcase and thought it looked great. Now I am kicking myself for not painting it sooner. Oh well it looks perfect now in my girls room.

The cute coral knob we bought at hobby lobby we also found similar ones on amazon as well.


And because every little girls room needs more sparkle, we picked out the cutest faux diamond fan pulls at homedepot. (similar ones here)


The star of the show is her dresser. To say I am happy with it is an understatement. I am thinking of selling tickets to show it off. No really I love how it turned out.

You can see the before of the dresser on instagram and here is a link to the blog I found my inspiration from.

The white on the dresser is Fundamental white in eggshell sheen.
I used this to paint 3 coats of the dresser frame and two coats on the drawers.
For the Coral part I bought a sample of Lei Flower in eggshell.
I used leftover white from the frame of the dresser and added small amounts of coral to it.
with each drawer I added more coral.

We just need to purchase curtains and frame for a poster her uncles purchased for her in California!

Summer Family Fun

Last week we enjoyed some family fun at our local Michigan’s Adventure. The scare of cooler weather didn’t keep us away.

Thank goodness for GPS

I would not survive without GPS. There I said it. Since moving 25 minutes from the city I have lived in for the last 15 years, my GPS has become my side kick. Okay so more the super hero and me more of the side kick. I feel like we moved to a foreign country. […]

Center My Life

This morning I am sitting at Starbucks. People watching, drinking not one but TWO S’more frappuccinos, reading the Bible, and listening to worship music. My YouVersion app suggested a verse today: Psalm 94:12-13 NIV: Blessed is the one you discipline, Lord, the one you teach from your law; you grant them relief from days of […]
