Girls’ rooms: how a simple change can change the look of the entire room

My daughter has had the same cute PBKids comforter and sheets since she was two.

I loved this comforter and so did Emorie, for awhile. Lately she’s gotten into mermaids and for her seventh birthday, she asked for a mermaid room. I reluctantly agreed.

We ordered this comforter, sheets and duvet from Target. I was relieved that the color matched her walls so well, because I didn’t want to paint them.

I also grabbed some fuchsia craft paint and some teal craft paint so I could paint these papier-mâché letters. Now she has a cute monogram above her bed that matches her comforter.

Her bookshelf didn’t really change much, except for this marquee letter from Justice.

Her dresser area didn’t change much either.

I didn’t even have to change the artwork.

And finally, we swapped out my childhood vanity for this lovely desk, where she can do her homework.

We decorated it with the memo board I made last fall, some cute boxes, and a few of her favorite things.

With just a little craft paint and some new bedding, Emorie’s room looks completely and totally different.

I still like the old bedding, but I’m quickly learning that my kid’s rooms aren’t mine, and if they’re happy with their rooms, I should let it be. And this mermaid loves her room.

Have a good Wednesday!
