I am SO happy this room is all done. It's been a loooong time since I began working on it, my final deadline was to have it ready before Christmas time and I'm glad that deadline was met.
Well, this is a reveal, so be prepared for lots of pictures. What better way to begin than with a picture of the room and its owner in it! don't you think so? No, not the bunny up there! This next picture, she is the girl who wanted a Navy blue room with polka dots, and green, and black...
And little bits of purple too!

It was a big makeover from her previous pink room, as you can see.
The biggest change came with paint, only one wall was painted navy blue, all the other walls are white. Wall decals were then added.
The padded headboard got converted into a picture frame headboard.
A light blue polka dot sheet set from T.J Maxx, pom pom organic pillow from PB Teen, and hand made drop cloth pillows with a purple ruffle give her bed the comfy feel.
I love moldings and all the architectural detail they bring, so it was a good opportunity for me to install a wooden cornice in this room, the window bench that she requested looks way better with a cornice above it.
The old dresser got a coat of paint and to its sides the bench or benches were built.
This is the place she has really enjoyed, for looking out the window, listening to her favorite music, or reading a book.
Sometimes she just pulls the little side table...
To work on her clay projects.
It is simply amazing all the detail she puts on to her tiny art!
A Linotype drawer is the perfect way to display all of her work.
Underneath the benches the storage baskets were personalized with tags and paint. I made the bench cushions and with the same fabric, plain curtains from Target were also personalized. The pom pom organic throw was the other splurge from PB Teen.
The desk area was built from two base cabinets from PB (an outlet sale $100/each), her uncle built the hutch and gave her the counter on her color of choice. The whole piece looks more finished with the added crown molding at the top.
The chair was a CL find, it had a little problem that I could fix, for only $30 and a flirty slipcover, it was a good deal. Click HERE for the redo and slipcover how to.
The girly girl chair needed a companion and for less than three dollars this Circles pillow was created.
Ikea storage boxes and spot lights, T.J Maxx wired box and two economical Wal-mart boards complete the desk area.
The polka dot pen is one of her clay creations.
Two rods installed on the bookcases keep her bracelets and necklaces organized.
The left side of the room sports the dresser that got a big makeover so it could fit properly in this room. Its legs where changed to match the ones in the PB base cabinets for the desk.
I love the new pendant lights from The Home Depot, they don't take space from her bedside tables and that makes a huge difference in rooms as small as this.
The purple tray was also a flea market find that got a big overhaul.
On this side of the room is also her closet. Its doors aren't usually open like this, and you must know why. In there I simply painted a green striped pattern on the wall.
On the side to the left of the closet, a piece of her old playground surrounds the mirror. Yes, the frame was built with pieces of her damaged playground. Check it out HERE.
I already told you how we girls need lots of storage, for jewelry, shoes, clothes, more clothes, make up, books, and of course bags!
Behind the door was the perfect place to nail some pieces of molding with hooks on it and VOILA! her display of bags is on.
I've already told you so many times, she is our young musician, her favorite instrument is the flute, but she also plays the piano and guitar. She is even trying to help her brother with the clarinet! Well, I tried to bring music elements into her room, like this music sheet art...
The music- love- peace sign on the back of the slipcover for the chair.
It was all about making the room, her room!
And I'm so glad she loves it.
Thanks for stopping by.
