Big Girl Room Redo!

Since my sweet Amira is turning 5 at the end of the month I decided it was time for change in her bedroom.  We didn't do anything drastic, but we did add a few new things.  I gave her the reigns in her "big girl room" with colors and personal touches.  Amira has been sleeping in a full size bed since she was 1 1/2 and her bedding had pretty much been the same since then!
She choose this bright turquoise ombre bedding from Target.  I was so proud of her picking something so pretty and ruffly.   We opted to keep her lavender walls simply because she still likes the color and no one wanted to paint them ;)  If you ask her what her favorite color is she'll tell you Rainbow.  So this confetti yarn garland we purchased from TheLittleFischies on Etsy is perfect and we love it!
We switched out her previous window valance for these turquoise pom pom curtains.  They were the perfect clearance score from Target since they match so well! They also block out the daylight if you close them for a nap, ya right! I would like to note that her tv just plays dvds, no cable in there.  We use to watch a movie before bed, but now the girls are on the move till sleepy time so, we aint got time for that ;)
I also painted her nightstand table white, it was a gray color before.  A very subtle change.  One other paint related thing I did was repaint her pictures frames on the wall.  They use to be shades of pink and she wanted those blue too. Her room is stuffed with toys and we keep them in designated corners on each side of the room.  This is real life people, not pictures of girls room on Pinterest, lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!


  1. How did you repaint the nightstand table? Aubrie has two dressers that I want to paint rather than throw out but I've never repainted furniture before :( I'm digging Amira's room redo. I love Turquoise!

  2. Her room is so sweet. I love it! Great job with the painting of the nightstand and frames. I love the girly touches too :)

    Her room is so tidy! You are such a good influence on your little ones.

  3. So beautiful! I love, love the bedding she chose. Great taste, just like her mama!

  4. I *love* that you posted the "real" picture of the toys against the wall :) I would have been sooooo into that bedding when I was her age. Hell, even as a teenager! Maybe even in college, ha.

  5. The colors are perfect, the room looks beautiful! you did good lady!
