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.
I decided to start a pinterest board to collect ideas:
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.
Only the rest of the house left!!
I'd love to hear what you think! Please leave a comment below.
