I am so excited to show you my little girl’s room makeover!!! And there’s a giveaway at the end of the post so don’t miss it! When we moved into our house, until last week, Malea’s room was ugly mauve, yes, UGLY, picture the early 90’s. It’s hard to capture it’s true ugliness in a picture, but I tried. The ceiling and fan were even mauve!
She also got our old dresser because when we moved we had to leave her custom closet at our other house. The dresser took up a ton of space in her room and it was constantly cluttered because she loves to find, and keep, “treasures”.
So I decided to sell the dresser and buy her an armoire, that would take up less floor space. I also moved her bed in front of the window to open up the room more.
Then it came time to paint. I can’t tell you how excited I was to get rid of the mauve! To save time on painting I used the PaintStick EZ-Twist from HomeRight. It makes painting so much faster, and cleaner, because the paint goes into the handle and out through the roller, so no spilling paint over the can and no tray clean up!
Adding a brighter color to the walls and painting the ceiling white completely transformed the room and made it so much happier. Are you ready to see what it looks like now???
Adding the chandelier made the room more “girly” and Matt and I made the custom bookshelves for her (post coming soon) because she loves to read.
I also love her new bedding that I found as a set at Target. I think the yellow paisley is so much more fun than the black comforter she had before, and they are a fun color combination with the bright pink curtains my mom made for Malea.
The armoire is pretty fabulous too. It may not be the custom closet she used to have but it has tons of storage space on the bottom and in the top! Now I just have to decide what color to paint it. Thoughts?
Here are a few other details of the room.
I am so excited with how her room turned out. Now instead of trying to rush by her room and not notice how ugly it is, I want to stop and linger in the doorway, and admire how bright and happy it is.
