A New Big Girl Room


So, again it has been awhile :) But here is my daughter's new room! I think she really loves it. I was worried when we moved into the new house that it was going to mess with her sleeping habits, not that they were that great to begin with. :) But since we moved into the new house she has probably been sleeping better than ever! She was really excited to get a "big" bed. Which was actually mine when I was little. Isn't it perfection!


I was really hoping these pictures would turn out better. I tried taking pictures three different times with three different types of lighting, but this was the best I got. Anyway, I had my husband build the cornice above her window. I really wanted the window to be the focal point in the room. I loved how it turned out! We are still planning on building a window seat below with toy storage.

 
The hearts on the wall are just vinyl stickers. I got the vinyl from here. Super easy! I made all the bedding. Everything except the sheets and the bed skirt. I love being able to sew and create (almost) exactly what is in my head!
The dresser was my great grandmas. I love that there are old furniture pieces in the room, but I think I gave it a modern twist by adding bright colors.
 

I finally framed my daughters blessing dress. I bought the shadow box a couple years ago, but never got around to painting it and hanging the dress. I really love how it turned out though.





I have way too much fun designing my kids bedrooms, but they always make me happy when I go in them and I hope they do the same for my kids!

I love it. So beautiful! Please tell me, what type of curtain rod did you use to hang her curtains? We have something similar over our living room window and I am having the hardest time finding a good way to hang the curtains.

We used a metal closet rod and attached it to the sides of the window valance. Hope that helps!
