Beautiful & Practical Kids Bedroom Organization Ideas

Last week I was able to go through my 9 year old daughter’s room with a giant garbage bag and a will to organize, and we finally get it clean and tidy. She’s a bit of a pack rat, so lots of things had accumulated in her room and it was time to do a giant clean and get some better organizational systems in her bedroom. Here are some of the improvements we made to Little C’s bedroom and some ideas on beautiful yet practical organization systems for kids bedrooms!Continue reading

A Pink, White & Gold Shabby Chic Glam Girls’ Bedroom Reveal (Little C’s Room Makeover for the ORC)

It’s here, it’s here! It’s room reveal day for the makeover we gave my 7 year old daughter, Little C, as part of the One Room Challenge. We are both so thrilled with how her room makeover turned out, and I’m so excited to share it here with all of you today! We went for a shabby chic inspired look with lots of blush pink, white, and touches of gold (as per Little C’s request). I love how soft and sweet the room looks now, and it seems so much bigger and feels more serene than it did before.

Make Shabby Chic Glam Kids’ Bedding (+ Little C’s Bedroom Makeover Progress for the ORC)

Our pink and shabby chic inspired bedroom makeover for my Little C has almost come to a close. Next Thursday, I’ll share with you the final reveal of the room as part of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home! I’ve really enjoyed making over my 7 year old’s room, and I think she’s enjoyed the process too. We’re also both really happy with how the space is turning out, and there (suprisingly!) haven’t many snags along the way. This past week, I worked on sewing some custom pillow covers and a shabby chic inspired duvet cover for Little C’s bed. Let me share with you how I made them, and how you could make your own DIY bedding too!

Redesigning a room with my 7 year old daughter is turning out to be really, really fun! When we first designed her room, she was 4 and didn’t really have her own sense of style yet. Now, she really seems to know what she wants and I’m just loving it. Today I want to give you a little bit more of a peek at our room makeover progress for the One Room Challenge, and share with you how we displayed kids’ art in Little C’s bedroom.

A Thrifted Shabby Chic Gallery Wall and Lamp Makeover #12MonthsofDIY

Doesn’t it feel good to make someone else’s trash into your own treasure? I love upcycling projects. There’s something so rewarding about reusing items and breathing new life into them. Not only are you being kind to our earth by saving things from the dumpster, but you’re able to get really creative by imagining a new use and look for something! This month, I was able to find a collection of items at our local Value Village that were begging for a makeover and turned them into a pretty shabby chic gallery wall for Little C’s room! I also gave a lovely lamp I found a bit of a feminine makeover, and it also looks really gorgeous in Little C’s room. Let me show you how, and make sure you visit all of the other bloggers at the end of this post to see what they made from their Value Village finds!

A fresh coat of paint makes a world of difference in how a room looks and feels. Do you have a room you want to try painting yourself? Let me share some simple room painting tips with you – from one DIYer to another! I also wanted to share our progress for Little C’s bedroom makeover for the One Room Challenge, and – yes! – it involves a DIY paint job.

Little C’s Bright, Jewel Toned Bedroom (+ Win Custom Canvas Art – Giveaway Ends 11/30)

As soon as I told Little C that we were building a new house and that she was going to get a brand new bedroom, I could see the wheels turning in her little head on how she’d decorate it.

There was no question at ALL that her wall colour was to be purple. She was certain of that. Each time we visited Lowe’s, she picked up a few paint chips in various shades of purple to add to her collection. She settled on the most vibrant, most intense shade of electric plumb that I’ve ever seen and I gave it my mommy blessing. It was crazy, but she loved it so much – why not say yes? She picked all of the fun & whimsical artwork too (scroll down to the bottom of this post to see her pick from Fizz and Bean and for a chance to win your OWN  canvas art!).Continue reading
