pink! pink! well what's wrong with pink?

This labor of love is done for now! When my six year old said she wanted a pink room I resisted for a little while. But then I decided to embrace it. This is what it looked like half way through.


And here it is in all it's girly glory!



The dresser was thrifted a few summers ago. It was in pretty bad shape and it could only be recused with distressing. It's still a great and solid piece of furniture. The message boards were recovered here. The lamp is from Home Goods clearance. The owl bank is from Urban Outfitters. And the hula dancer is a gift from Hawaii.


The bed is from a thrift store. Both pillows are from Home Goods as well as the clearance bedding for $30.The framed doily is from my Great Grandma and I love it in this room. I always love to have something with a story and a little bit of history.


The desk was $4 at a goodwill years ago. The green storage cube is from Target. The houndstooth curtain fabric was $1 a yard at Home Fabrics. That's right one dollar! I bought 13 yards that day. So it will come up again someday! This super cute rug is from Urban Outfitters. {bummer when I bought it 3 or 4 months ago they only had one size. Now they have a larger one. Still a great price for the 5 by 7}
 

The gallery wall was from things we already had and frames from Michaels using my trusty coupons. I got all 6 frames for less than $15. Tomorrow I will link to all the artwork. It's almost all free.


Even the doll bed got a little makeover! Much needed by the way. The doll bed is from Grandma from Target.


Here are the furniture fix ups. There will always be something more to do. New lighting someday for example. But for now I am really happy with how it turned out. And so is she. I love that her face lights up every time she sees something new in there.

  1. I love all the colors! Sade's walls are a similar light ballet pink color (she picked it) but after painting the walls months ago I keep stalling to decorate it because the color has me intimidated.
    I love how you pulled everything together with bright punches of color! The room doesn't look too "sweet" which is my main concern in decorating with this color! I LOVE IT :)

  4. What an adorable room! Love the fabric you used for the message boards, it's actually the exact fabric I used for my little girls' crib bedding :D And, the doily above her bed is such a special touch.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm thrilled to hear the tutorial will be helpful :)
