Little Girl’s Room Makeover

Little Girl’s Room Makeover

My daughter is a princess in every sense of the word. She pretends she’s a princess while wearing Disney Princess dresses and waving her magic wand. She loves pink.

When my hubby was remodeling our house and we were getting ready to move back in, all he concentrated on was getting things like, you know, walls and floors put in. So he did that and then painted my daughter’s room white. We got her some pink princess bedding and a white vanity and a dresser and called it a day. At the time, she had to house all of her toys in her bedroom because we didn’t yet have a playroom.

So here is how it looked then

It looked like that for 2 years, minus a little furniture rearranging from time to time to mix things up and the addition of a playroom meant the toys got to move out of there.

When the kids and I went away this summer, I left hubby a long honey-do list. One of the items on that list was to paint our daughter’s bedroom. Her only request was, surprise! PINK!

So hubby did as asked from his princess and painted her room pink. He used oops paint from Home Depot, for a grand total of $5.

It sat with bare walls for a while after we got home and we have slowly been adding some flair to the walls. I put up a few window (and closet!) mistreatments and my daughter and I did a wall art project. I still have to add some photos to other walls and have some artwork from school to frame and hang, but I thought I would share what less than $20 did for her room.


Paint – $5
Fabric – $3 (did 2 windows and the closet)
Wall art – $10

  12. The extract is derived from the saffron flower, which is mostly used to produce saffron spice.

    It takes thousands of saffron Sherman plants to produce only one pound of spice, making saffron one of the most sought-after
    spices in the world. Saffron spruce and extract have now been used to deal with several issues
    such as asthma, insomnia, whooping cough and depression.
    The Saffron Diet has also been used by women to alleviate menstrual pains and
    by being an aphrodisiac both men and women. As a spruce, saffron can be used to
    add quality and coloring to foods. It’s many varied uses like here
