Final Bedroom Reveal

For the past few weeks I have been showing various parts of my daughter’s bedroom makeover. I so appreciate everyone who has followed along and shared such encouraging comments. Thank you! So, without further delay, here is the room in its entirety.
Where we began
As I have mentioned before, my daughter’s room was decorated around a blue and green Laura Ashley bedding set I used when I was in college.
I made the curtains from an extra set of sheets. The dressing table was a roadside find which I panted and stenciled. You can tell from the before photos, I was very much into everything matching perfectly. I have since come to realize by mixing things up a bit, a room becomes more interesting.
Putting it all together
Although my daughter has not reached double digits, she wanted a room where she could make some of the decorating choices. We were not initially on the same page, but through compromise – she wanted pink and dogs and I wanted a space that would fit in with the rest of the house and one she would not out grow in a few years - we were able to create a room we both love. The starting point for the entire project was the curtain fabric.
I have to admit it was a real struggle to find coordinating fabric to use for the Euro shams. After many hours online, I finally found the pink zebra fabric. (I apologize for not remembering the source.) The regular shams are made from left over fabric from another project and the long pillow with the flowers I made from inexpensive suiting material.
The bedside table is topped with a piece of marble I purchased at an antiques store. I love how the gray veining picks up the other gray features in the room and adds another layer of texture to the space. (To see the story behind the marble click here.) The lamp is one of a pair which I painted and glazed.
For artwork, I created inexpensive dog silhouettes, . . .
. . . updated a bulletin board with ribbon . . .
. . . and added a simple frame around the chandelier.
The dressing table was updated with a fresh coat of paint . . .
. . . and accessorized with vintage and yard sale finds.

Unplanned Changes
One of the biggest changes in this room was the flooring. You may have noticed from the before picture, the bedroom was carpeted. Installing hardwood floors was not in the original redo plan. In fact, the room was basically finished when we decided to replace the carpeting. We were at the point where something had to be done - markers, nail polish and lotion just do not work well with white carpet.
Replacing the carpeting with wood floors meant purchasing a rug. After what seemed like endless searching for the right color and size, I finally splurged on the pink and white rug you see above – the finishing touch to the room.

So there you have it – my daughter’s room redo! It is hard to believe the entire process started over 8 months ago. Overall, I think we achieved the goals of this project. I am very pleased with the results and most importantly, so is my daughter.

It turned out great, Stacey! I'll bet you're glad it's done, too, after 8 months! I whole-heartedly support kids having a say in the decor of their room, with, of course, the parent having veto power.

Rene @ cottage and vine said...

Brilliant! I love every single detail of this room! Your daughter must be on cloud nine.

Pine Tree Home said...

It came together so nicely. I think the pink is such a fun color for a girl...hot pink..I love it. All the details are so very cool. I hope your daughter brags to all her friends how great her room is.

Timeless Style Design said...

Just found you through Brooklyn Limestone -- love your creativity and ideas!

Anita said...

Oh it all looks so great! I love the fabric on the drapes and the rug is the perfect finishing touch. It's always hard to know how big of a rug in a bedroom and whether to put it under or beside the bed. But this turned out just right.

Tammy@ Not Just Paper and Glue said...

I am here from Lady Bloggers Society. I love how you redid your daughter's room and that you worked together to bring both of your styles together. I think the room looks fabulous!

Courtney said...

I am in love with this room! The shade of pink that you chose - raspberry? - is just perfect. And the rug is stunning...brings it all together. I love it!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

Love that room! I am in the process of re-doing my daughter's room as well. It has taken me over a year though! It takes time to find the fabrics and furniture while trying to keep the costs down!

Beautiful!

OH mys weetness! You should be in a magazine!!! I love it all, especially the darling rose pillow you put on the bed too cute!
Stop by and say hi if you are not too busy!
Hugs,
Olivia

Andrea said...

This is one of the best room makeovers I have ever seen!

Jane@Little House of Projects said...

The room started out beautiful! So, to top that makes it even more impressive. It's a very sophisticated room. Definitely a girl's room but not too girly. I love it!

michiganhome said...

I've enjoyed seeing the snippets, but now, to see the whole thing together...What a treat! Love the color combo, and you used it to perfection. Kudos

Love,

Wow, just lovely! Thanks for sharing the whole thing with us here! I really like the pillow sham with the rosette on it. Lovely room!

Amber said...

It was definitely worth the time & effort! I like how everything coordinates well and works together, but also doesn't "match." The molding around the chandelier is a fabulous touch that really adds polish to the room. I'm sure your daughter LOVES her new space!

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

I love the whole room, but the curtains are fabulous and the frame around the chandelier is a fantastic idea!!! loving the dog art too.

I wish my big girl room looked like this. You really outdid yourself. I am so filing away these ideas for my baby girl's room. We are not ready for the transformation yet...but it will be here before I know it. Right now we are working on the boys transition (he's 8, almost 9).

Just simply gorgeous! I adore that long pillow with the roses too.

Kristi said...

Your daughters room came out GREAT! Love all that you did in there!
And finally I realized WHY your picture and name look so familiar to me, I have saved one of your magazine shoots of your home forever, LOL! We are basically neighbors (I'm not a killer, promise, lol)!! We am building a new house and want it to have an "old" feel, so that was one of the reasons I saved it. I'm married to a builder and come from a family of builders so buying a 100 yr old house isn't going to happen, lol! Anyway I'm glad I figured it out because it was driving me crazy! LOL! I linked up to Feature yourself Friday's party of my kitchen. It's done, just in time to sell it! LOL :)

Wow, I am so inspired by this room.
