In the lead up to Evie turning 3 it was time to finally close down the nursery for good and set up her bedroom. It was a bitter sweet milestone, as it means no more baby cuteness but also that our little baby has grown into a little girl and that meant some fun for me designing her new room.
This was my inspiration picture of the sort of thing I had in mind, mainly the bed : ( ok, her actual room does not really look like this room at all, but you have to start somewhere)
Now, the challange as always was to acheive something pretty but on a budget.
This is what we created:
|As this used to be the Beauty Room, I was really happy to leave the white paint and pretty green and pink wall paper and just work with those colours.|
|Her very own ensuite|
|Block out all memory from your mind the fact that she dressed herself in sneakers and socks with her dress. Lets just pretend that never happened.|
|Bed frame $39 from Ikea, I cut the head board off, sanded the base and spray painted it white|
|Bed Head $10 from a 2nd hand shop was cleaned, sanded then spray painted white|
|Bed Head ready for spraying.|
|The finished bed: Evie May loves her room!|
