Remember way back in the beginning of March when I posted about my youngest daughter’s bedroom? Originally I was thinking an orange and pink look would be really spot on for her but when I asked her what she would pick for her room, she came up with pale pink and pale yellow. No offense to anyone who has these colors together but it reminded me of some bad 1980s decor. I was really just stuck on what to do in her room so I kicked her down to the basement with her sisters, cleared everything out of her room and then used my quilt that my grandma made me a long time ago as my inspiration. My grandma passed away almost 10 years ago this May so to have a piece of my grandma that I can share with my children and actually even use is special.
These two pictures were my main inspiration for this room, the first one was the color palette and the second picture reminded me of my quilt and had a vintage feel, which I liked.
Here is a refresher on what her room looked like before I started, lots of stuff taped to the walls, oak trim and doors, black, pink and white color scheme with “puke colored” walls as little A called them. We moved in last June and she picked out the zebra black and pink theme. Thankfully she was over it so I could make this room not look like Barbie at the zoo.
First of all, I would like to thank Wal-mart for being open 24 hours a day even though I really don’t like Wally world, buying paint at 11:300 at night did come in handy for this room. The color is Better Homes and Gardens 10742 Shallow Wading Pool.
The embroidery hoops are from Jo-anns and Hobby Lobby and were all around $1 each. The fabric in the hoops is from the etsy store Shabby Sheets and was $10 for a few squares of fabric that I used above her desk as well.
The bed frame came from E’s room and was originally white. A few coats of Rustoleum Warm Yellow gave me the pop of color I was looking for. The white coverlet is from Springmaid and can be found at Target for $70 but I found this one a bit cheaper on e-bay, $40. The bed skirt is also Springmaid and was a GW score for $7, currently $40 at Target. The pillow was $15 and I found it at TJ Maxx. This was the first purchase I made for this room and was my inspiration with the quilt.
The green table was a thrift store find last summer for $5, originally an ugly brown color nut now sporting this pretty green called Eden by Rustoleum.
The lamp is from Target and with a coupon was $13 for the shade and base. I bought the pom pom trim from Hancock Fabrics for $1. The clock is from Hobby Lobby for $7. Little A painted the cute little inchworm a few years ago.
The curtain fabric is from fabric.com and is by Heather Bailey, Nicey Jane Church Flowers Pink.
The sewing desk is from GW and I picked it up $7. The cool drum stool is from CL and was $20.
The corkboard is from Savers for $2, the fabric to cover it was $3.50. The clothespins I had already and used leftover fabric from the hoops to cover up some old pictures we had.
Little A drew a self portrait for her room and I added this drawing of a dog she did recently.
The letter A is a chipboard letter from Hobby Lobby for $1.50, I covered it with a page from a vintage nursery rhyme book.
The butterfly pictures are from Savers and were $2 each. I spray painted them with Eden by Rustoleum, same color as the nightstand.
The picture above her dresser was a GW find for $3.
Now for the “unfinished” portion of the room. The closet needs some work and I didn’t take the time to make it “picture perfect” as I needed to take the bub’s outside to play and he was tired of waiting for me.
Time for a few final pictures.
Her room is rather large and it feels kind of sparse in there but she likes to play with her barbie house and also her dolls so for now having the extra room to play is working out in here. I may find her a bigger dresser but that depends on how I work out her closet.
Things left to finish:
Gut and Paint the closet, add shelving and curtains or doors on closet
Find a bookshelf and/or bigger dresser

Ok, if you made it this far, Congratulations! This was a long picture heavy post! While typing up this post, I realized how much of her room was thrifted, ebay, etsy and a small amount came from Target. I really enjoyed shopping for her room and I am sure I’ll be adding a few more things here and there. The best part of the whole process is that Little A loves her room!
