My little girl is going to be turning four this summer, so I wanted to go ahead and work on a “big girl” room for her. I wanted it to be whimsical and artsy like. I started working on it when we moved to Pace in October, but the morning sickness and all really put me behind. I can now say though that I am finally finished!!!!!!!!! After much work and shopping for just the right things, it all came together! Let me give you a tour
Let’s begin with this side of the room.
This dresser has been in my family for a bit. It was my moms when she was little, then I received it when I was a teenager. It has been through a few transformations, but for my daughter’s room I upholstered the drawers with batting and a black/white striped fabric. I just used a staple gun to get it on. Then I put some pretty glass knobs on it.
I draped some ribbon and two types of pompom trim across the top of the mirror.
The black/gem frame was a $1 aisle find at Target. The piggy bank was another $1 find from a few years back. I love finding great finds there The pink frame came from TJ Maxx.
This chair was a thrift store makeover. I scored it for $7 and redid the fabric and the paint. See below for the before pic. The fuzzy rug is from Hobby Lobby and I made the heart pillow for my daughter on Valentines Day (pattern found here).
These pretty little doll note cards came from Anthropologie (but you can find them on Amazon here). I bought some pretty scrapbook papers to put them on and framed them. This was another find last summer that I saved waiting for the room transformation.
Plate and Spoon on her bed is a free pattern I offer here.
For the felt letters, I traced and cut them out, then embroidered them. I glued them on with fabric glue. I also used fabric glue to glue on the yarn to spell joy. The peace letters were ironed on (I used heat n’ bond for that. I traced the letters backwards on the stuff, ironed it on, but out the letters, then ironed them on the fabric).
The little doilies came from JoAnn’s. I made a rosette (tutorial here), fabric yo-yo, and two types of loop flowers (tutorial here).
