Girl’s Bedroom Big Reveal

Today’s the day!  It feels like we are finally making forward progress in this house…

Wait. What? You haven’t heard?  Yep, I’ve been working diligently-ish on a room here in our new home and I’m stoked…

Feeling left out? No worries!  I can get you spun up lickity-split

The Plan | The Lighting | The Headboard

 

Color Splash Decor Blog Hop

I figured what better way to debut said room than with ten other extremely talented bloggers who don’t shy away from color…and lots of it.  That’s right my friends…It’s been a wonderful summer, but now that the kids are back to school we can all start checking off our LOOONNGGG lists of projects, big and small. These last couple of weeks have afforded me hours to myself in the middle of the day to wrap up this fun room.

So after you’ve checked out my bedroom reveal then bop on over to see the bright and bold idea that Clayton Makes has to offer, or get tips from any of these other AB-FAB and color-loving ladies.

This room is important to our family for two reasons:

1. It’s for that smart, funny, and beautiful young lady right there.  She may only be in middle school, but she just started her 6th school (or 7th if you count British Primary School).  Yep, if anyone deserves a room makeover, it might just be her!

2. We just moved…again…and it’s time to start knocking off these rooms one at at time. Begining in a child’s room has given me a little more time to mull over what I want to do with the entertaining areas of the home.  Want to see what we are starting with?

Inspo and Before

After the Spring 2018 ORC my daughter fell head-over-heals for the bedroom Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles created for her daugher.  It’s pretty spectacular, right?

Now, I obviously couldn’t copy this bedroom exactly, but I told my daughter that we could do:

*Stripes

*Emerald headboard

*Fun preppy patterns

 

 

And Here’s What we Came up With:

Before

The room isn’t huge, but the natural lighting is glorious.  Plus, for the first time in her recollection, my oldest of four children doesn’t have to share it with ANYONE! Do you hear me talkin’?  She hit “Own Room Status” folks. Woot Woot!

So, after a few weeks of work, frozen pizzas for dinner, and complete and utter chaos around the rest of the house I think I gained some MAJOR COOL POINTS with my first born… because…

I have to admit, this headboard was a pretty amazing Craigslist find.  I didn’t even try to low-ball the seller because I knew this was THE ONE!

But doesn’t it look sooooo wicked awesome in the Tropicana Jaguar Emerald fabric from Spoonflower.  YOU can do this project too!  Click HERE for a detailed step by step tutorial.

While I have upholstered many things in my life, this was my first attempt at covering a headboard.  I approached this project with a bit of fear and trepidation.  Do I really have the sewing skills to take on all of those sexy curves?  Am I going to waste perfectly PERFECT fabric? Well, I’m happy to report that it was less challenging than I feared. PHEW!  It did, however, take time.  I didn’t clock it exactly, but I would guess 15- 20 hours total.

I can’t deny that for three (or four or five 🙂 days it looked like a Hobby Lobby threw up inside of my living room. I would say the ends justify the means on this one, though…wouldn’t you?

I adore the contrasting welting.  I have a secret to making this a WHOLE lot easier…but…You’d have to check out my tutorial to find out what it is…I’m such a tease.

THE LIGHTING

BEFORE

This before shot is a bit weak because it is obviously AFTER I had already hung curtains and painted the walls and ceiling…But I had to truly capture the absolutely boring ceiling fan…major snooze-fest.

THE BEDDING

I am thrilled to have bedding sponsored by Roostery.  If you’ve never heared of this company then you are missing out friends.  It’s the sister company to Spoonflower…yep the company that sponsored the spectacular headboard fabric.  Here’s the beautiful thing.  Say you find a design you like out of the never ending options at Spoonflower and you can imagine that stinkin’ awesome pattern on a pillow, curtain, tea towel (the list goes on)… but you can’t sew, or just aren’t in the mood… Here comes Roostery to the rescue!  They will custom make your home good for you in the pattern of your dreams with no sewing machine required by you!

Have you ever owned custom sheets?  As in, picked from an ALMOST endless supply of options and then someone made them especially for you?  Ummm…Me neither…This was a first for us and, let me tell you, it was a TOTAL treat. My daughter is unbelievably excited (and so am I)!

THE SHEETS

For the sheets I chose Luxe Palm Leaf Pattern in Emerald by the Esther Fallon Lau  AKA the  Nouveau Bohemian (the same designer and collection as the Spoonflower headboard fabric).  Shopping in the same Spoonflower/Roostery collection or from the same designer is an easy way to find patterns that coordinate.   These sheets are crisp, fresh, and ohhhh soooo unique!  I challenge you to find bed sheets that are half this cool from any other website

Confession time- My daughter has been lacking a cover for her duvet for about 8 months now mostly because I couldn’t find any that captured my heart.  Everything just seemed so…well…boring.  I am stoked that she now has this  Bitsy Dots Pattern Duvet designed by Crystal Walen.  Crystal is another one of my favorite surface designers on Spoonflower and Roostery.  She alone has 17 pages of duvet cover options…Seriously folks…go check this stuff out! Endless possibilities!

I was happy to see that the duvet is 100% cotton sateen and feels rather wrinkle resistent…because…um.. I’m not an “iron your bedding” type of gal.  The design is two-sided (front and back of the duvet) and has a hidden zipper and comforter ties.  What’s not to love?

THE STRIPES

I saved what is perhaps the biggest SURPRISE for last!  Can we take a moment to enjoy these crazy-cool Tempaper stripes?

Sure, you’ve seen stripes on walls before, but have you ever seen them spaced out quite like this?  I wanted the walls to be light and airy so that it fit with the silk curtains.  Surprisingly, my inspiration for this striped pattern was a dress worn by the lady in front of me at church.  Just telling it like it is folks.

As I shopped around to various wallpaper websites I could find thick black stripes but that seemed too harsh.  I could find thin stripes that are closer together, but that was still too much black for this girl’s bedroom.

It was somewhere in this decision making proccess that I realized  Tempaper Mini Stripes gave me complete DIY control.  Since these stripes are applied individually I had the ability to design my own pattern.  Early in this proccess I had about three different black stripe design options that I also considered (a trio of horizontal racing stripes even made the list), but luckily in the end I couldn’t resist the classic french feel of these stripes.

Here’s the Trick Though

Tempaper Mini Stripes come in 4 inch rolls. I DIY’ed them to this 2 inch width.  DIY HERE.  It’s easy and no Silhouette Machine required.

You know that I like to add doses of creativity a room, and sometimes that comes in the form of a unique DIY project.  Read HERE to see how I hacked this $20 Craigslisted Ikea desk. It is such a fun addition to this girl’s bedroom.
