Perfectly Pink Big Girl Room...

This room is the smallest in the house, but it doesn't lack in storage space, that's for sure.  Because the room is so small, we opted to have some custom built-ins when we built our home a little over 4 years ago.      And also, due to the small size of the room, and not having a very short lens, this was such a challenge to photograph!!  But hopefully you get the overall feel of this little space.  It has been a favorite spot for my little girl, (and myself) but she is excited for the upcoming changes for her new shared room with her baby sister.  We shall see how long her excitement lasts once said sister arrives.  LOL.   Anyway, here is her first big girl room...
 I didn't realize how much stuff in this room was hand crafted by myself and SIL until I started taking these photos... the bedspread and pillows were some of my very first sewing experiments!
 If you haven't guessed by now, we are big time lovers of books around here.  My little B loves to stay up at night and read to her hearts content.  I know she doesn't stay up too late, so I'm not complaining.

 My SIL Cat, from Catherina's Creative Corner hand painted that beautiful letter B for me!  I fell in love with the one she painted for her little girl, and she was so kind to make one for my sweet {B} too.  Thanks Cat!!

 Many of the little nicknacks have been collected over the years from my daughter's birthday's... like that little tinkerbell, and the little jars of pixie/fairy dust came from my daughter's 3rd birthday (Fairy themed of course)
 Jars of pearls and star fish wand came from her mermaid themed party.  Reuse, recycle!!  :)
 The mirror was first my sisters, then passed down to me, and somehow I got lucky enough to take it with me after moving out.
 The framed castle and Cinderella coach are stickers!!  My sister and I couldn't pass them up, so we decided to frame them for our girls' rooms.

 I only most recently hung up this photo collage of my {B}... I'm so sad I already have to take them down!  I mounted the large photos on foam board myself, you can view that tutorial over on my photography blog HERE.

I added the little beads to the lamp shade, because there wasn't enough girly bling in the room as it was.  ;)
It was seriously impossible to get a full shot of the built-ins with such limited space, but hopefully you get an idea of them anyhow.
  The window seat between the drawers opens up too, I guess sort of like a trunk, great for keeping some extra blankets that we take out and use during the colder months.

 The butterfly garlands hanging in her window are from her Butterfly party.  :)

And that pretty much sums it up!  My goodness, who knew I could cram so much into one tiny space!  ;)  But, this room is going under a COMPLETE overhaul this weekend... Goodbye pink!  You'll be missed... sort of.  ;)


  1. OH MY GORGEOUS!!!!! I am hoping I only have to work another few months and then I can be a stay at home mom and I have big plans for my house. But I know it won't look a fraction as good as yours does. But looking at this stuff does get my creative juices flowing. You are incredible Cherie! Thank you for sharing your talents! Good luck painting!

  2. Thank you Kelsea! I'm so happy for you, you will love being home with your sweet girl! And have so much fun with your plans you have for your home! It's never ending over here, but I like it that way. ;)

  3. Gorgeous! This room is stunning I would never change it! What are you doing with all of the decor when you change it up?
