The Girls' Room : The Big Reveal

We are finally done in the girls' room! Hallelujah! I was beginning to think this was going to take forever. The "bones" of the room remained the same, but the girls really wanted to freshen up their space and have it reflect their tween and teen personalities more.



The makeover actually started before you even enter the room. Our oldest daughter is a Pinterest fan and had seen a photo of a painted door that would give the bedroom more of an apartment vibe. She loved it and wanted to try the same technique on their door. So, she taped off the panels and began painting. They both decided on the number two since they are two sisters sharing the space. 


 




Then we freshened up their seating area with some new pillows and art work. This great little love seat converts into a bed for spend the night guests.





The beds got a little lovin' by adding a graphic duvet cover and more fresh pillows. We pretty much left everything else the same.






 

The biggest change-up came to their shared desk area. They spend a whole lot of time at their desk and they needed some shelving to de-clutter the space. They also wanted to incorporate a t.v. into the area so they could watch movies together from bed. The disco ball, well every teen just needs a disco ball right?








The room reflects their vision now and they are both really pleased with the result. What do you all think? Thank you so much for coming by to see their transformed space! Have a great week y'all!

  2. This is so cute Amy! I love the decor, and I think its so fun that your daughters worked together to create a space that they both would love. How much fun! So glad I saw this today. I can imagine my daughter wanting to design her own room decorating in a few short years…

  11. Amy,
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! I have been busy with work. I work a Saturday for a co worker to attend her grand child's birthday party and it put me on a stretch of work 3, off 1, work 4, off 1 and work 3. This is my last night and I finally get 3 days off in a row. It is hard with only being able to sleep all night for one night at a clip and I am getting too old to do that!!
    LOVE your daughters's room!! It looks like it came right out of a magazine!! Beautiful!!
    Hugs,Deb

  14. This is such a beautiful room! Love the light fixture and wall galleries especially. It's all so pretty! Where did you buy the chicken wire for the one frame on the wall? I've been to two farm stores and they don't have the hexagonal style. Thx!!

    1. Kendra, I'm so surprised that you've had no luck finding the chicken wire. It's also at Lowe's and Home Depot if you haven't tried those yet. Good luck and happy shopping!
