Ah, her room! I had such fun putting this together for her, and thank goodness she adores it just as much as I had hoped she would. Besides the obvious freshening up - of paint, etc - that needed to be done, I was trying to create a little more of a grown up girls room for her. One that suits an almost 10 year old, rather than the 5 year old she was when we moved in here. But perhaps my biggest goal of all was to create a 'place' for all of her crafts and supplies - she's a crafty one, this girl, and there is no limit to the number of hobbies she decides to take on, and therefore accumulate 'stuff' for (hmn....). And given her personality and tendency to really dive fully into a project and the accompanying creative flurry of mess....well, she needs a clear workspace and a place for everything. I think we accomplished that goal when we turned her closet into full-on shelving for all of her supplies, and I made all of those baskets to hold all the things. So many baskets. But, success!
Some details I'm guessing you might be asking about -
The wall paint is by Colorhouse (Dream 02....and indeed, dreamy it is!), and the floors....oh, the floors! I did so love the white floorboards upstairs for a while, but I never could quite get it to work the way I wanted to. The durability just wasn't what I needed without being true-blue "floor paint" and so we've begun repainting, room by room, the floors in Ben Moore (with the color Shaker Gray). It's working well.
As for other 'stuff' in her room - the craft cart is a Raskog Utility Cart from IKEA. The hanging string lights are Geometric Pin Dot Lights from Terrain. And her chandelier, silly and fun as it is, is from Land of Nod. Her curtains are all Matilda by IKEA (the same that we have in most of the upstairs windows now). And almost everything else in her room is thrifted, handmade or existing furniture we had. And a few little bits and bobs from the woods, of course.
I wanted to create a little sitting area and cozy soft spot by adding that pouf to the room. I made it with a vintage tablecloth and by using the pattern from Maya's book Reinvention. It's stuffed with wool and old clothing, and I love how it came together as a sturdy, solid but cozy sitting spot for her, right next to her books.
Ah, we are both so happy with her completed room....and she, the tired post-camper that she still is days later....is still sleeping away in dreamland at nearly nine am this morning. I'll take that as a good sign.
