Ellie's Bedroom Makeover

For the last 6 months my 3 year old little lady has been asking for a green room. It's her 4th birthday this July so we decided to make her "dreams" come true. Of course if we were going to paint then I mine as well re.do the whole room, right? Before and after...







Now if only we didn't have carpet in the bedrooms. I do suppose it's more comfy though.

Just in case you were wondering:

paint: Sherwin Williams Parakeet Green
lamp, bedding, and rug: Home Goods
side table: estate sale, then painted a basic white enamel from Benjamin Moore
curtains: wal-mart (not a fan of the super store, but the price was right), green trim added by me
starburst clock: original 70's from my parent's home
bean bag insert: pottery barn teen on clearance
bean bag cover: ebay (I believe in budgets, especially when brother has a matching one)

Such a great shade. My youngest went through a green phase, about this color, and said her room was so happy!

great job - I love home goods as a place to pick up the perfect room finishers. I miss the one in Bham - the selections at TJ here are more limited.

I'm loving that birdcage

How exciting! There's nothing like a newly redone room - Ellie must feel so special and loved. You've done a wonderful job. The entire room is sweet and has nice touches, such as the starburst clock and birdcage...

Precious room...I know your daughter will enjoy it!

nkp said...

It looks wonderful, Paula! I love that the bed is yours, so special. The nightstand looks fantastic and has such a great shape. But my favorite is that little rattan chair. Do share, where ever did you find it?

Your little girl looks so grown up, I didn't realize she and my youngest are the same age. July babie are extra sweet, no? ;0)

Kotori said...

That green is just. about. perfect. Love it, love it. All the little touches just make is so personal - you are so good (and I bet she just loves it!)

megan said...

oh so lovely! a perfect room for her to grow in.

John Taylor said...

The room definitely feels cosy, love the color you picked. Like the nightstand table lamp, and what I like the most is EVC setup next to the window... looks so fun and neat.
