Today, I'm very excited to present THE REVEAL of the Princess' Bedroom!
This has been a long time in coming, mostly because of a few details that I was struggling with..but it finally all came together. So without further ado I present ...
And THE AFTER:
First things first. The room is quite cozy (code word for small), so I wanted to start out by giving it a coat of fresh white paint. That, by itself, did a lot to open up the space. Then we had to exchange the Princess' full size bed for a twin. That allowed us to come up with a fun new headboard and we chose to create an upholstered headboard. You can read more about that here.
This view of the other side of the room shows the Princess' dresser which we painted blue, as well as the window seat which we reupholstered from pink plaid to green polka dots. You can read more about that here.
Here's another view of the window seat. I added the pom-pom fringe to some store-bought curtains to give them a more custom feel. I also made all of the pillows. The green pattern pillow was used in the Princess' bedroom in our previous home. I made the blue and white pillow with fabric that I designed on Spoonflower.com. You can read more about that here. I also created the linen pillow using a drawing that I did of some ballerinas. Watch for a tutorial on how you can make one too...coming soon.
Here's another view of the blue dresser. The wall art consists of the Princess' monogram, a photo canvas, and the button art monogram I created. You can find out how to make your own button monogram here. (Oh, and of course, the Princess' American Girl Doll keeps watch over things while the Princess is at school!)
What girl's room would be complete without some pretty pom poms? The "sticker" on the wall is actually a paper doll fabric wall cling from Love Mae. I love it!! (So does the Princess!)
I don't know if you've noticed yet, but this room has a bit of a fashion theme going on...(I don't like over-the-top themes, but a subtle theme is always fun) and this print called Jane Austen Dresses is from this vendor on Etsy and was a perfect addition.
Here's a little detail from the window seat.
And here's another view of the bed. The art was created using a Barbie fashion calendar. You can read more about how I created it here. The quilt is the pick-stitched quilt by Pottery Barn.
Here's a close-up of the pillows. Again, the blue and white pillow was created using my Spoonflower fabric, and I embellished it with some "melted" flower brooches that I created. You can read about that here. I also added a bit of pom-pom fringe to this pillow to tie it in with the curtains.
Here is a detail of the sconces. Since the room is on the small side, I felt that sconces would be a better choice than lamps. These cuties are from IKEA.
And here's one last view of the bedroom! I sure love how it turned out....and so does the Princess! (Which, after all, is what really matters.)
Have a lovely day!!
