Sweet bedroom makeover
Hello again! Today I am sharing a blog post that I've been excited to share for some time now. I've been dying to show you all the wonderful new things we've changed in my daughter's room!!
When we first moved into this house, I didn't have a design plan for my daughter's room at all. It just wasn't a priority. She was in between the "toddler" and "little girl" stages and didn't really have an opinion of her own. We kind of threw some things together in there and didn't give it much thought. But as all girls do, she quickly started sharing her opinions about her room and they weren't great! She "hated" the blue walls and claimed her bedding was "scratchy". We have always struggled keeping this girl in her room at night because she loves to sneak into our room to cuddle so I made it a new priority to give her a room she really loved in hopes it would help her stay in it. All night long!
First things first, was new bedding. That is when I came across Beddys! This is the Vintage Blush set. Can I just gush for a minute about how amazing this bedding is?!! I love to share a good find and this one is something you don't want to miss out on! Especially if you have littles! Not only is it adorable and refreshingly unique, it is about as easy as 1-2-3: perfect for my 5 year old who is learning how to keep her room clean all on her own! The bedding is an all-in-one system. The entire bedding fits over your mattress just like a fitted sheet.
The top blanket is attached by a zipper but can be completely removed if needed. We like to keep the bottom zipped at night and the sides zipped about a quarter of the way up. The inside is cozy minky fleece. It is lightweight but warm enough for winter. The best part about everything though is that she can make the bed herself with no help. She just zips up the sides and throws her pillows on top in the morning and the room is made in less than a minute. Not just made, but looks gorgeous!
So you probably don't want to just hear my opinions on it, right? Here is what my daughter has to say:
I like my pillows.
I just love everything about it!"
Ok, so she's 5 and a woman of little words but you get the point, we both love it!
If you are wondering about the actual bed frame itself, it's not new. We've had this for about 3 years and it's awesome. The entire world can fit in the four drawers underneath the bed and the headboard stores all of Ireland's favorite books - easy access for a book before bed. This is the Brimnes bed with storage and headboard from Ikea. I love it because this room is seemingly clean and organized but once you open those drawers, toys are just exploding all over the place!
I have tons more details to share with you all including those AH-MAZING wall flowers, that gorgeous (and uber girly) tee-pee and that gallery wall but I won't overload you now so watch out for those posts and a full lists of sources in the next few days!!
