It is crazy to me that we have almost lived in this house for one year, time needs to slow down! When we moved in I was most excited to get my hands on my girls bedroom. They didn’t share a room in our Utah home. We had to maximize every inch of this Cape Cod home. And can I just tell you how glad I am that we have them sharing a room? They sing each other to sleep and play for hours together in this space, such a blessing.
I created a play area opposite their beds. They love dolls and all the little toys. I had these Ikea bins that I made a simple linen curtain for to hide all the mess. It is on velcro so they can pull it off when they want to get to everything. The oval pictures of the ladies were passed down from my mom, they once belonged to another family member. I love using vintage items that mean something in all my rooms.
I had the signs made for above their toy bins that say my girls middle names Grace and Faith. They were made by The Painted Nest. The baskets are my favorite, they hold their stuffed animals and dolls. They were made by Prairie St Mercantile they are all hand made and just the most charming and unique baskets you will find, use code INSTALOVE to save 20% off your basket order!
I wanted to take advantage of this ceiling, these little Capes have a lot of charm. I added wallpaper from Tempaper Designs it is temporary wallpaper. I wanted something that I could put up easily myself and I fell in love with this flock of birds. It was SO easy to apply and very forgiving if you made a mistake or the pattern wasn’t matching up I could pull off and adjust it.
This chandelier really pulled the room together. Amazing how good lighting can do that. I am slightly obsessed with antlers. I love how unexpected and eclectic they are. This one is from The Shabby Antler and she is offering 10% off by using SHABBY10 you can use it on any of her unique product.
My daughter set up this little desk herself. I had an extra side table and she pulled a chair up to it and set up colored pencils and books in the drawer. She does a lot of work here! One day she was having a bad day and I added a little bowl with m&m’s to it, I think she told me thank you a million times that day. I love that she appreciates the small things and I believe that is what life is made for, making someones day.
So many of the items I use are second hand. This coat hanger and globe were both found second hand shopping. I think previously loved pieces add a lot of charm. The coat hanger needed a coat of white spray paint and it was set.
I added a little leftover wallpaper behind this shadow box. I like how it ties in the wallpaper on the other side of the room and adds a little pop of pattern.
I am in love with two twin beds side by side, I was so happy when I could use it in my own home. I switched up some of their bedding for the winter. They needed more layers. I have more bedding tips and ideas HERE. You can find the plaid duvets HERE.
I wanted to pull in a touch of black with the squirrel pillow and check duvet. I found these “Wild and Free” and “Adventure” cotton canvas prints from Vol25 they add a lot of depth. LOVE all of her artwork.
These gorgeous frames are from Delta Frames and I just about fell over when we got them. They are so well made and they also do custom. I love the touch of gold.
Of coarse my other daughter needed a little desk because her sister had one. Luckily we aren’t low on little accent tables. She keeps her “treasures” stored there, who am I kidding she has two other drawers in the bookcase filled with cards, papers and anything else she thinks she can’t part with. I have to go through and de-junk it once in awhile without her watching me.
I made this string art from a broken mirror frame. I have a DIY blog post on it HERE. It was so easy and actually really fun to do with my daughter. The “you are so loved” banner is from one of my favorite little shops Plain Jane Home. The crown burlap pillow and the fun deer head are from them too.
These doll dresses used to go on glass dolls that I had when I was younger and that my Mom let us play with. My Mom brought them to me recently with the dolls and so many memories came flooding back. I cherished these dolls and the fact that we could play with them and enjoy them. I think that helped me to value nice things. I found the shadow box frame at Ikea. I added fabric to the back and pinned the doll clothes and shoes to the back.
Another charming nook that I added the temporary wallpaper too. It highlights the architecture found in small old homes. You know the book “the secret” well I swear that works in my life all the time. If I think of something I really want and put it out in the universe…then if I seek it out it falls into my lap. Try it! I had just had my second daughter and needed another dresser. I didn’t want a brand new one, I wanted one with some character. I went out one day to some of my favorite consignment shops in Utah and found this one for less than $100. It might take some extra time to find exactly what you want and for the price you want to pay but it is worth the wait.
I can’t wait to deck this guy out for Christmas! I will be adding a lot of Christmas touches to their bedroom pretty soon. Make sure to sign up to get my blog posts sent to your email box so you don’t miss a thing! Sign up HERE on my home page.
The paint color is the same that I used throughout our home- Cloud Cover from Benjamin Moore.
