When we moved last summer and our girls haggled for bedroom possession in our new, larger 5 bedroom house, our youngest girl Ivy came up with the short straw, ending up with the dungeon of a game room. It sported black-out window coverings, navy blue walls and didn’t even have a closet. Oh, and I won’t even mention the anti-static office carpeting – or maybe I will – it was awful! I never managed before pictures of the whole room – I was too busy ripping up carpeting and recruiting my brother’s help.
Uncle Art rebuilt the closet to a different location and hung new lighting. We had new carpet installed, removed the black out curtains and primed the walls. While all of that was being done, I picked our paint color and with Aunt Cindee’s help, we painted the other half of this long narrow room.
“I want a Princess room!”, Ivy requested, and in the makeover process, I’ve come to understand that the secret to a princess room is in the details.
I created the special princess bed skirt using an inexpensive purchased bed skirt as a base for layers of ruffled pink tulle.
Aunt Emily made an incredibly cute personalized princess bunting for Christmas this year! Auntie Em recently opened up an etsy shop – Aunt Ems Crafts full of precious baby items that she enjoys making – including a bunting or two 😉
Princess Ivy approves. The remodel continues and we’ll keep you apprised of the royal progress.
