Bit by bit, we have been working on Lou’s big girl room since last spring. And I am proud to finally show all of you the finished product.
In between work, kids and blogging, we built the room, step by step. It all started with a plan.
Unfortunately, the fabric for the curtains has been discontinued. It is a P. Kaufman fabric. The Pattern is Camelot and the color is Lake.
We were able to repurpose the bed skirt from the crib to make the bed skirt and borders for the throw pillows. The sconces were on sale at Restoration Hardware.
Corrine Marlowe painted the stripes on the ceiling in the same Melon Shine paint that I used on the bed.
I kept the Little Castle glider from the nursery because I love it so much. The store that I bought it from (that has since gone out of business) allowed me to customize it with my own fabrics. The little chair was a gift that Mom brought back from Rhode Island when she found out I was pregnant with E.
Luckily our changing table was convertible. The mirror was a originally a butterfly picture that I scored on clearance at Home Goods. I painted it Pear Green.
I knew exactly what I wanted for the chandelier… the problem is that it didn’t exist.
Then I found Lindsey at Simply Salvage, who worked tirelessly on this baby. Poor Lindsey had no idea what she got herself into with me. This took over 4,000 hand painted beads. She painted them Bird’s Egg to match the walls.
My little Lou Lou Bug simply adores her room. When it was finally done she stayed in there for hours. While in another room, I heard her talking to herself saying “This is a dream come true!!! I love my room. I love my chandelier… I love my pink bed… I love my special lights (that would be the sconces.)…. I love my flowers.. ” Yada, yada, yada. It warmed my heart. And that my friends, made it all worth it. She has slept in her room every night since.
