Ideas For A Girly-Girl's Room

Kristin DeMarco, Gifted Notions
We're in the midst of selling and buying. A house that is.

For my many bloggy friends who have moved recently, you're well aware of the burgeoning paperwork and moments of thinking "The house isn't really ours...until the fat lady sings." And I don't mean me! (Still running that treadmill in hopes of being ready for that wedding in June!)

When I have a few minutes, I allow myself to daydream about painting our youngest daughter's bedroom (mocha walls with pink curtains and white accents) I have it all planned out in my head and have been inspired by the design blogs and the pretty combination of pink and brown.

Still wondering if I want to build a padded headboard for her, or scour the second-hand shops for some cheap treasure. Not sure. But definitely wanting these pink curtains from Pottery Barn!

Husband didn't like it when I mentioned painting the woodwork white, but come on, just give me this room pleeeeese! I'm going all let's-cut-crown-molding-and-paint-and-build-with-wood-and-stuff on him! I might be scaring him, but a girl can dream, right?

What about this bed? There's that beadboard again! And it's on sale for $399!!! Really?!? I don't think so. But it's so pretty. *sigh*

Our daughters are so excited to have their own rooms and leave what they currently have:

Hey! Who did all this?!?
So, if anyone has a link to "how to make a cute girls' padded headboard," send it over! I'm off to tackle that paperwork now. :)

  4. That first picture idea is GORGEOUS!! I'd love to have a look like that if we ever have another girl! Beautiful! Sounds like you have a lot going on with the move etc. Good luck and God's peace upon you all!

  5. Hi- looks like you have some great ideas for your girls' rooms. I wanted to share a padded headboard that I did for my daughter's room. It is super easy and super cheap! Thanks for stopping by! : )


  6. Love your ideas. We just did our daughter's room in gray with pink and purple accents.
