Remember that amazing birthday present I got back in December?
You remember right? This one?! The leak in our wall that made #32 one I will never forget.
For the next 3.5 weeks we lived in a construction zone as Russ amazingly took care of things. He is so good at doing that and I will forever be impressed and appreciative of his skills.
Plus we decided to make lemonade out of the lemons we were given. Marissa had picked out that shade of pink when she was just 3 years old. It was time for a change and a change mean turning her room into something she could grow into.
Today about 3 months later I am finally sharing that new space with you. It isn’t perfect, but she loves it and that is all that matters if you ask me.
New bedding, curtains, artwork, shelves and a reading nook to change things up and make this the perfect room for her to grow with as those tween years get frighteningly close.
We put a pad on her toy box and added a few pillows making it multi-functional and the perfect spot to read a book.
As much as I tried to convince her to let me paint this dresser, she just won’t. She says it’s perfect and beautiful and she will never let me touch it. I say that if she feels that way fine, less work for me. Someday I bet she’ll let me update it. Until then maybe I should change the hardware. Also I promise you the only crooked thing was my camera when I took this photo ;).
Every girl needs a fairy house and a few fairies. She LOVES to make fairies.
One of my favorite additions to the new space is this gallery wall. Some photos of the girls, shelves to make things interchangeable and some artwork by Marissa. It is such a fun addition and I never get tired of looking at it. One day she told me that sometimes she looks at the pictures when she’s laying in bed trying to fall asleep. I thought that was really sweet.
I love this fun, colorful bedding. It was definitely a good choice and a really great quality for the price too. I still need to figure out some kind of bed skirt for her bed but seem to have lost steam.
Pillows that she sewed together. Cute little hedgehogs aren’t they?!
Her nightstand and our notebook…. that’s an entirely different blog post hopefully for next month.
Barbie House and her running medals. She likes to hang them up just like mommy does.
Another favorite part that we added are these IKEA shelves. Because of them I don’t have Legos spread across my whole entire house taking over ever single bit of extra space anymore. They aren’t fancy but they do the job so well and that makes me so happy!
And that wraps up her new space.
To see before pictures you can check out our home tour but be warned A LOT has changed by then.
Maybe we need to do an updated tour of the house?!
Have you been doing any remodeling lately?
