What Does A Girl’s Bedroom Need?
A few months ago, ok more like 6 months ago, I started working on my 10 year old daughter’s bedroom. I finished preparing and painting the walls and ripping up the carpet to lay laminate wood floor boards. I also transformed her plain old brown pine chest of drawers into a white and raw wood piece of furniture. Check out this post for all the details! Then all progress stopped as other projects took priority like this blog, the end of school year and Christmas. Well as part of my goal to have a calm and clutter free home this year, I am making it a priority to finish her room this month. I know, Kalyani won’t believe it!!
So here are some of the ideas we have to makeover her bedroom: (Check out my Pinterest boards here for more ideas!)
Wall Mirror And Decorative Lamp Shade
A tween girl’s bedroom needs a pretty mirror to use!
A Cosy Reading Space
Kalyani LOVES to read! So I think this kind of space will get well used in her room.
Inspirational Prints On The Wall
I like the idea of having a few prints that contain words of encouragement to live by. I hope to create my own and print them out in A4 size or bigger and frame them.
Framed Photos And White Furniture
I have already made some progress on the white furniture idea by transforming an old brown chest of drawers with white paint.
And On The List To Do:
prep and paint walls in neutral colour lay floor boards paint brown pine chest of drawers hung décor on the wallsYes!
- bedside lamp or lamp hang from the wall
complete painting the bedside table whiteDid this and then decided not to use it. screw in remaining drawer handles finish and install DIY lamp shade find fun floor rugNot using the rug I got. It’s gone into the living room.
- create a reading spot with bean bag, comfy cushion etc. This has ended up being her king single bed.
sort through and declutter toy collection (that gets to be K’s job)
- hang mirror Changed mirror to one attached to dressing table.
put up some more hooks for bags and hanging dressesIt ended up being one! glue skirting down
- finish painting skirting and window sill
- prep and paint door frame and door
- create a headboard for her bed
- possibly take wheels off bed or replace bed frame
Obviously some things are a 5 minute job and other things will take a lot longer. Can’t wait for it to all be finished though!
