When Little C chose the paint colour for her bedroom, she was four years old. Now, at a “mature” 7 years old, she’s excited for a change. Today, I want to share with you our plans to turn Little C’s bedroom into a pink, shabby chic dream room as we take part in the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home this Spring!

Here’s what we’re starting with – it’s a bright, jewel toned room with electric purple walls that I let Little C choose when she was 4. The room is very wild and striking, but my girl admits that she’d now like a colour that’s softer and more “relaxing” on her walls.

When I saw that the One Room Challenge was starting up again this month, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for us to refresh her room together! We have 6 weeks to reinvent Little C’s room, and we’ll post our progress weekly along the way.

Little C also wants a bed closer to the ground. We’ll update her bed, paint her walls, rearrange the furniture, and make some new window treatments. Of course we’ll DIY as much as we can, and share some fun ideas with you along the way!

We’re both pretty excited for the change!

Here’s a mood board with our inspiration:

  1. Jessica Twin Bed from The Brick
  2. Ruffled Drapes from Amazon
  3. Monarch Children’s 2 Piece Ottoman Set from The Brick
  4. Gold Heart Decoration from Michaels
  5. Baroque Candle Chandelier from Amazon
  6. Gold Confetti Fabric from Fabric.com
  7. Garden Zoey Birdie Fabric from Fabric.com
  8. Pink Mongolian Faux Fur Fabric from Fabric.com
  9. Monarch Children’s Chair in Pink from The Brick
  10. She Leaves a Little Sparkle Poster from Amazon
  11. White Knit Throw with Fringe from The Brick
  12. Jessica Nightstand from The Brick

We really loved the vintage look of the white Jessica bedroom furniture from the Brick – isn’t all of that floral detail so gorgeous?! It reminds me of the Victorian era, and Little C thinks it looks like it’s fit for a princess. The Jessica furniture is made of pine and painted white, so it should be really durable. The bed and nightstand are also on sale at The Brick this weekend – click here to see the sale price!

The plan is to create a vintage-inspired, shabby chic retreat for Little C that’s white, blush pink and gold. She chose these colours and I love them, of course! She loves ruffles, lace, and soft fabrics, so we’ll include lots of those feminine details in the room as well.

Stay tuned for our progress, and don’t forget to visit the One Room Challenge over at Calling It Home to see what all of the other participants are working on. It’s going to be a lot of fun to follow along!
