Room Redo!

Little Gal has been asking for her own room forEVER, or... for at least a year now.
My first opinion on the matter was "no way, she is only 8"!  But the sibling rivalry begged to differ.  And so it was decided...Little Gal and Little Sis would split up into their own bedrooms.  It has actually been really great for them to each have their own space.

With much regret...this was her old sad room.
It is sooooo dark and dreary isn't it?
We tried adding some paper flowers to bring some sort of happiness into the poor, dark, sad room. :(

When Little Gal mentioned a bird theme...I almost freaked out.
I had this whole idea in my head of a French room.  What little girl wouldn't love hot pink and Eiffel towers!?!
But, then I thought about how Little Gal loves nature and flowers and trees...and birds are kind of cute.
It was then that I knew it would be perfect for her...and the wheels started turning.

Let me introduce to you, "Romantic Bird Studio"...
Little Gal chose her favorite colors of Hot Pink and Turquoise!

The details all coordinated...
Bird, swirly pink, and yellow fabric (all from Fabric.com) made into a duvet...

Ruffles on a tiny pillow, and bows on the bedding...

Turquoise furniture (DIY), distressed and glazed...

Vinyl Bird Decals (Amazon.com) on the wall and furniture...


Bird cages (Amazon.com) and bird houses...

A small floral detailed mirror (Home Goods, $15.99)

Vintage Crystal knobs (eBay)...

Little Gal now sleeps soundly without the pitter-pat of Little Sis throwing things to the top bunk.
Her room is also the cleanest in the land because she has a place to put everything!

All in all, it was the best thing to give her a room of her own.
I am a little jealous of the hot pink and turquoise, and I don't know how Mr. Pepper would feel about giant paper flowers above our windows, but it works for Little Gal's style!

More good news...I have a boatload of tutorials from the redo!
Stay tuned...
