My Little Girls Room Makeover (Flashback Friday)

Girls room before after
I have been having a blast over on Google+, discovering all sorts of new bloggers. Thanks to everyone who linked up to the Mommy is Coo Coo hop.  Keep your eye out for the notification that the shared circle is available! If you haven’t linked up yet.. there is still time! You have until the end of the weekend.

Now it is time for Flashback Friday! 

Today I am featuring the girls’ bedroom.   This was the first room I redid when we moved into our California house.  We moved from a 4 bedroom house in Boston to a 3 bedroom house, and so the girls suddenly had to share a room.   Therefore, to make it more acceptable I let them pick out the color, which was PINK, of course.  The actual paint color I ended up using was Martha Stewart’s Carnation.  (Details on the painting are in this post.)

Girls room before and after
To tone down the super pinky-ness of the room, I installed board and batten (the first time I ever did it).  Because of the textured walls I had to install giant sheets of MDF.  All the nitty gritty details including a breakdown of the $300 budget for the project can be found here.

Board and batten girls room
Back in 2011 my youngest daughter was 2 and was still in a crib..  Of course now she is no longer using it (in fact, you can see I am using this crib for the new baby in his nursery).  The girls now have bunk beds.  Even the dresser in the photo above was made over for the baby.

Pink shared girls room
The room is currently unrecognizable and actually needs a refresh. It is even on my list of ‘to do’ projects for 2014.  The princess pink lasted a couple years, but as the girls have gotten older (and accumulated more stuff) the space needs a new layout and needs to now reflect their maturing tastes.

I am just not sure when I am going to get around to it.  Time seems to fly by so quickly, and they are growing up so fast. I want to hold onto my little ‘princesses’ for a just a little longer.

  1. Awww....makes me wish I had a girl, pink walls and all. The board walls are fabulous.

  2. What a cute room.. .I remember having a pink room growing up but sure wasn't decorated this cute.

  3. Cute room Kim! My daughter is crazy about pink too. I like all the white you used to offset the pinkness. Good luck with the re-do when you get to it!

  4. What a cute room you made, looks so sweet. :-) Have a great weekend.

  5. Beautiful room, Kim! Great job.

    I love this room, the b&b was a great way to balance all the pink. They grow so fast! I'm also thinking on re-doing my son's room, it's still sporting the Thomas the tank engine theme from when he was 4! He is now 11, a middle-schooler and his love for trains is long gone :)

  7. Thanks Hilda. I just hope they don't pink purple next! ;)

  8. That is because our moms didn't have pinterest! *wink*

  9. I do love the pink and white board and batten walls. But everything always needs to be changed and updated don't they? I just finished my little girl's room {it only took me five months}!

    Have a blessed Easter~
