My daughter turned six 2 days after Christmas. Instead of buying her a bunch of stuff she wouldn’t play with, I decided to remodel her bedroom. She had been complaining that she was too old for her previous decor. Apparently kindergartners are too sophisticated for puppy posters and pink bedspreads. I asked her to pick out 3 paint colors and told her the rest would be a surprise. She of course picked out 4 (because 4 is more than 3 and more is always better): lime green, purple, light blue, and teal. I used Pinterest and my own creativity to come up with the rest.
Check it out…
This poster was super fun to create. I used Adobe Photoshop to tint the images purple and add the words. I then uploaded them Snapfish.com to create and print this collage print.
Here are a few shots of the finished room.
Instead of a dresser, I decided to use this $15 bookcase I found at Walmart and these $1 baskets from Dollar Tree. This is much easier for a 6 year old to organize and keep tidy.
The Headboard was revamped using white semi-gloss paint and lime green spray paint on the insert. The canopy was purchased at Justice.
These frames were purchased at Dollar Tree and painted to match.
Jewelry and Hair thing Holders-I purchased these from Goodwill for $2 each. I intend to paint the lids to match, but ran out of time before Christmas.
Harper's Office. The empty frames are for future Artwork created by Harper herself.
These are probably my favorite. I purchased round cookie sheets for $1 each and spray painted them to match. I then hot-glued coordinating ribbon to the backs for hanging. Viola! Magnet boards!
This was super easy. I purchased this bulletin board at Walmart and then added the rhinestone stickers to the top and bottom. I hot-glued ribbon to the back.
Another Walmart purchased that I spruced up. This time I used fancy duct tape to transform the frame. I again hot-glued ribbon to the back for hanging purposes.
This is a kitchen utensil holder that I found at Goodwill for cheap. I saw it and thought it would be perfect for holding dry erase markers and these magnets I made out of random household items (buttons, scrapbook buttons, clips, etc.).
The barbie house was a previous years Christmas present and conveniently it matches!
These frames were cheap, but I spiced them up with mats I made from scrapbook paper and fun stickers.
I can't take credit for this. We bought this adorable hat/scarf rack at an art fair.
One of my most helpful ideas...I put this cute basket in the bookcase and we just toss all of those flimsy paperbacks in. The basket allows us to flip through them without making a huge mess.
Just some fun little frames from Michaels
More bookcase frames
