In keeping with getting a puppy this summer, I'm continuing my trend of doing crazy things this year. After jumping into the Spring edition of the One Room Challenge and tackling my master bathroom, my daughter has convinced me to do it all again. Except this time, it's her room. Her birthday is actually tomorrow, so the timing of it all is perfect, and she is incredibly excited to get things underway. A big thanks to Linda at Calling it Home for organizing the One Room Challenge, giving me the inspiration to tackle this project!
So, let's take a look at the room as it stands now. I have to clarify that my daughter has rearranged this room more than once in just the past few weeks
against my advice. (Translation: She recruited her dad to do her dirty work). She's a creative soul, and is always wanting to change things up, so I can't blame her for wanting to rearrange things.
That said, bear in mind that she has put her personal stamp on the room at the moment. :-)
She apparently swiped some rugs from the bathroom to add to her floor decor.
Festive black ribbon on her dresser for Halloween...
And her bedroom door is tricked out for Halloween too - complete with cobwebs and some black and orange garland.
We have been talking about this room redo, and here are some of the things she would like to incorporate:
- Artwork with quotes (a girl after my own heart)
- Some pom-pom pillows
- New bedding
- Blinds that block out the light
- A smaller dresser and a mirror
- A space to organize her books
- Organized areas for all of her stuff
- Creative storage since her room isn't that large
Some inspiration that has caught our collective eyes so far:
