Daughter’s Room Remodel

A couple of months ago, we were wrapping up the remodeling projects on our house….or so we thought!  We were in the middle of laying new hard wood floors in our living room and dining room.


We were also repainting and making our daughter’s room “more grown up”.  Of course, you start a remodeling project and it’s inevitable you open up Pandora’s Box!  Our flood happened!  All of a sudden we were faced with (almost) an entire house remodel!  We ended up having to redo our entire basement, the entire kitchen and wrap up the living room, dining room and our daughter’s room.  Then of course, since we were having carpet laid, why not just throw in two bedrooms and an office to boot!

I’ve been a bit overwhelmed since the brunt of the work happened between November and December.  I feel like I’m crawling out of an episode of Extreme Home Makeover, minus the crews of people it takes to make magic happen in a few days!  We are breathing now!  I finally have time to sit down and go through the pictures and process what we’ve done!  I want to share!

My daughter’s room was pale pink and shabby chic to the max!  But, as she is hitting those preteen…Taylor Swift playing…Twilight swooning years, she wanted to make her room her own.  I let her pick out the color!


The pictures don’t do the color justice.  She chose a deep, peacock, turquoise color!  I’ll have to ask House of Turquoise how best to photograph this delicious hue!  It always looks navy to me in the photographs.

It’s deep like the ocean and made her room the perfect backdrop for her panda collection.  The paper lanterns came from World Market.  Her bedspread from Target.  The lime green toile pillow (from Pottery Barn) and the pink floral pillow, were from her shabby chic days.  I love to mix and match patterns and colors!

So does my daughter!! It doesn’t matter how much I try to simplify her room, she loves to vignette!!





This dresser was bought at Brimfield Antique Market on a weekend trip with my mom.  It use to be white.  A few summers ago, I decided to give it a face lift.   I primed it.  Then I painted it with a deep, turquoise, oil base paint.  I then topped it with coat of  raspberry.  A few days later, after it dried, I sanded the edges to let some of that turquoise come through.  I then took vintage fabric and made the top two pulls.  It’s finished off with pink, glass knobs.


T-Pot is a gymnast.  We took a long shelf and added hooks underneath to display her medals.  Above her shelf is her inspiration board!


We had so much fun doing this room together!  She loves it and I loved watching the creativity come alive in my girl!  I’d love to hear the creative ways you’ve tackled your kid’s rooms!
