Brynlee's Bedroom Tour

I had such a fun time transforming our boring white walled spare room to a precious pink little girl room for my daughter's third birthday. Since we'll need the nursery in a few months for the baby (oh, by the way...it's a BOY!), we decided to make a special room for Brynlee to move in to. Here is a tour of Brynlee's PINK room!



Before. Just boring, nothing special.


After! Totally pink with white accents. I love it! If she won't sleep in it...I definitely will!
The bed.  I found this sweet shabby chic comforter at Target for half off..yeah!  And I had to get the pink tutu bed skirt!  I added my own touch of color with the pillows I made.  And the horse was $3 at a garage sale...she loves the horse! 




Above the bed I put three white frames (Target clearance) with three separate "pictures" inside that I made.  The first is a ballerina leotard with a fru-fru tutu.  The second is a flower with a pearl center.  The third is a fabric silhouette of Bryn...with a little hairbow of course!

On the wall next to her bed I put her name with wooden letters and tulle. 
The dresser I also found at a garage sale (it seems like everything was either found at Target or a garage sale).  I loved the white color and girly mirror.  Of course, I couldn't pass up the pink princess pig (Target) and the chandelier (Ikea) was a must for my little girl's room.  The chandelier was only $40...good price and perfect touch to a girly room!  I made an easy peasy cover for the ugly cord and chain.



The window in the room has simple white tab top curtains (Bed, Bath, & Beyond) and a pennant banner I made to match the pillows on the bed.  I love pennant banners!  They are a super simple way to decorate a room.


The other side of the room has a bookshelf (Ikea), toy box (Target), and a Doll house (garage sale).  Brynlee loves the doll house and has been playing with it ever since.  I was especially excited about the old window and wreath I made to decorate that large wall.  My sister in law found the old windows last year and I've been just waiting for the perfect way to use them ( I still have one more!).  I love the look of the window on the wall even though my husband still doesn't understand it.  I got the idea and tutorial for the wreath at House of Smith's blog.  It was super easy, but a little time consuming.  I also put small pearls in the middle of each rosette.  I am soo happy with how it turned out! 



And that concludes our tour of Brynlee's new bedroom.  What do you think?

Super cute room on the cheap! My favorite are the pillows and the wreath! I had no idea you made that! I should've expected that, but it's beautiful! You are too talented!

Kristine said...

You really are just so talented. I need you to come and re-do all my kids' rooms since they are all just plain and boring.
Alessia use to have the princess pig bank too until it broke. Such a sad day for all of us.
Happy Birthday to your Spunky girl!

Lynette: I just love this!! I love the tri-color bands of the pink instead of just one color. The "re-purposing" of the window is wonderful, too. Do you have a Re-Store near you? They're a Habitat for Humanity store where you can get old pieces like this. We have one here...now I'm just hoping we can get the house we are under contract for...

Janet said...

Wow! You are so talented! (But I already knew that.) The room is sooo cute! Lucky Brynlee!
