My little girl's dream mermaid bedroom.

June 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I was 8 years old, standing in the middle of a paint store - Airbase Carpet Mart? Market? Something like that. I was facing tower after tower of wallpaper rolls. We were moving and I was getting a new room! I remember it vividly. I remember my mom's excitement as she pulled out the pale yellow wall paper and with the small pink flowers. We bought matching everything - bedspread, pillows, lamp shades, curtains, wall paper, border, EVERYTHING. 

I remember that room vividly. 

I wanted my girl to have that, to have a dream bedroom to move into. 

When we bought it this house to renovate, I imagined a big HGTV reveal where I opened the door and the whole house was done. Silly me. 

BUT, if I couldn't have that, I certainly wanted my girl to have it. So, we sent the kids to Nana and Grandpa's for the weekend and we went to work.

I've had a few people shoot me a message asking for the details since posting her room on facebook and Instagram so I thought I'd put it all in one place:

The inspiration: MERMAIDS. 

She helped picked out the colors: Behr Marquee - Celestial Light & Whipped Mint We painted before we moved in so here are a few picture of the colors with her old bedding:

I decided to start a pinterest board to collect ideas:

Then we picked out the bedding. Most of the mermaid bedding was too cartoonish. Then we found the Isla bedding and Mermaid sheets from Pottery Barn and we knew we were onto something!

 

I shopped around for loft beds for quite some time. I hemmed and hawed over the expense. I decided that getting an inexpensive bed would allow a few more splurges. This one is from walmart: http://www.walmart.com/ip/29845496

She was begging for a canopy for her bed. While shopping, I found this amazing jelly fish at HearthSong

Then it was just a matter of shopping for some artwork on Etsy and pulling it all together.
