It’s makeover reveal day!
Y’all, I am so excited about this space! If you recall a few weeks ago I shared the before of my daughter’s room. I was really nervous about decorating a small bedroom because we need lots of storage without feeling cramped. The room was half nursery/half toddler’s room and lacked character. Well, all that has changed now!
When I was preparing to decorate her small bedroom I wanted it to be a space that she could grow into, something cute and girly but still a little sophisticated. I played around with a lot of different color schemes before settling on the bright pink with gold accents and it turned out to be perfect for this space!
Before we jump into the new look let’s take a quick peek at what it looked like before.
Now for the after!
This whole room truly was a labor of love. This space is a very small bedroom so I wanted to add a lot of color and texture to take the focus off it’s small size. The first thing we did was paint the room. As you can see in the before, the color of the room did nothing for the space. It was really bland (which is what you would expect in a rental). We made the decision to paint the room a beautiful shade of gray. To help me with color selection, I used the Chip It!® tool, which instantly transforms any picture into a paint palette using more than 1,500 Sherwin-Williams paint colors. I decided on SW 7023 Requisite Gray, it’s from the Softer Side Color Collection in the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams collection. Don’t you love it?
On one wall we opted for these fun doggy decals instead of painting.
P loves dogs so it was the perfect fit for her space.
RUGS! I couldn’t wait to throw down a rug to cover up the gray carpet. love this yellow trellis rug. It has a hint of gold that ended up being perfect for the look I was going for. I layered it with this white shag rug that was already in her room. I think it gives it a more luxurious feel.
And this little diva needed a fabulous bed to go with her new space! I can’t wait to show you how we DIYed this upholstered headboard!
And can we talk about that pouf? I found it at Target on clearance and the colors are perfection.
We ended up using the same dresser and just painted it again. I’m super attached to it because it was the first piece of furniture we bought for her when I was pregnant so I hope to keep it for many years to come. The color is SW 7004 Snowbound. I thought it might be too big now that she has the twin bed but I think it works nicely.
And check out where the mint nightstand
ended up!!! She got placed in here after I started making changes in my master bedroom. I didn’t want to use it in the master, but I also wasn’t ready to get rid of it. I’m so glad I didn’t because it fits in perfectly in the little girl’s room.
It’s officially my favorite room in the house. Peighton, if you’re looking for me I’m probably hanging out in your room 😉
