Girls' Bedroom Makeover: Almost Finished

The girls' room has been put together for a few days now and they love it! We decided to go with a soft gray since it was neutral and will be suitable should this ever become a boys' room. I picked up these three bedspreads last summer at Goodwill. I love the clean lines, yet whimsical patterns. A splash of pink never a girl, either.

Being that we needed to allow each child to incorporate her own personality, we allowed them to each pick their own color of sheet, bedside table and storage cube. Next we took some very ugly Goodwill lamps, applied some spray paint and custom decorations. Each lamp is so reflective of each girl. They also chose a black frame lined with some scrapbook paper to go above their beds. Now they can write on the glass a new message every day.

I think the room has become all that we wanted it to be. Simple. Grown up in places. Girlie. Easy to clean. Organized.

There's still a few things yet to be done. I found this great write-on calendar on clearance and then talked down the price further due to an imperfection (which I quickly fixed with a sharpie). I'm on the hunt for a medium sized coffee table that I can paint light pink to store more storage cubes under. It would be a great place for the younger girls to color and play.

This dresser is in need of a coat of paint and some love. It's been in the family for years and I think it's shape and scale are perfect for the room. The Goodwill mirror will hang above it. I'm debating about whether or not it should be painted as well.

It looks GREAT! I love it! They each have their own space and that is great. Our house is too small for our kids to have their own space... oh well...they can have all the space they want when they get their own house someday. :) Happy New Year!

Looks great Monica! You've done a great job! I was thinking this is great for the 4-H home improvement project? Is any of this going to go to the fair with anyone? I know how refreshing it feels to have a space organized! Keep up the good work!

LOVE this! Here is my question...where are the girls clothing? is there a closet that I can't see? Also - books? and stuff like that?

LOVE the wall color and the bedspreads. So clean. So simple. I need to get around to decluttering for my girlies and do something like this!
