A Room for My Princess

Abby's room sure has come a long way. When we moved in we painted it purple. Then about a year ago, I painted it a custom mix paint (I just mixed cans that I had). That is how it stayed for the last year. I never fully finished her room. I have finally "finished" it now. There are still some things I'd like to do, but for now it's done!

Last week I did the gold stars on her wall. This weekend I managed to get her canopy up.
Now she has a canopy above her daybed. She calls it her "tent'.

I ordered the gold stars from Julia @ Cuckoo 4 Design. She is such a sweetheart to order from!!
I love how the gold looks with the BM Lido Green paint.

Abby really loves it and that makes me incredibly happy!
I made her a name sign for her wall. The pink wall lights were from Ikea a few years ago. Her bedding was from Ikea a few years ago. The navy sheets I just bought from Ikea.
The curtains are Ikea Merete. I'd like to do something else to them one day. Possibly ribbon or pom pom trim. But no rush for that ;)
She also need bamboo blinds on her windows.

I made her a navy growth chart for her room as well. We need to replace her closet doors and built proper organization inside her closet.

This is the other side of the room. I'd love to do some other things over here. But she loves playing with the huge doll house that she got for Christmas and her Barbie's.

So as long as Abby loves it, I am happy for now. 
She sure has come a long way from sleeping in our walk-in closet at our old house!

Am I nuts for the makeover?? Probably! But I don't care. Everyone I know thinks I've lost my marble with my re-decorating. But our house is finally feeling like "me". Light and bright!!

The craziest part is every time I look at the wall colour (it is so pretty) I wonder if I should have painted it SW Sea Salt instead?
I think I have a sickness. The problem is that I don't "love" it when I walk in. I will wait and see how everything else comes together first. But knowing me, I will probably change it one day when no ones I looking ;)

Maybe now I can start on our room!  photo 1001954_10101065966207063_96074138_n_zpsa41e371a.jpg

  1. This is one of the amazing rooms I have ever seen. The style and design are varying on the wall paint and the decoration is perfectly fit in the child’s interest. Now that I have seen your stunning style, I think I can make one for my child. Cool!
