Girls Pink Room Makeover

Sep, 04, 2019


It’s finally here! Eloise’s big girl room is finally finished and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. She’s got a beautiful space that will grow with her and she loves it so much! So let’s check out this Girls Pink Room Makeover!

Pink Toddler Girls Room Makeover

I created a mood board earlier this year with this fun scalloped design wall and when I brought it to life it turned out even better than I imagined. Eloise wanted pink walls from the start but I knew I would be picking a pretty muted and more mauve color – Retro Pink by Behr ended up being perfect!

I took my time with this space and didn’t rush into things which felt really nice and allowed me to be patient and wait for the perfect pieces.

I struggled with finding a bed for her for a while. At first I really wanted to get her one of those gorgeous wicker daybeds but they’re super pricey. I tried hunting one down on Facebook Marketplace but didn’t have any luck.

So then I started searching for other twin beds and hit the jackpot on Craigslist with this vintage Jenny Lind bed I scored for $40!! Once I had that, everything else started falling into place.

One of the first things I purchased for her room was this throw pillow from McGee & Co. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect and match her walls and it did not disappoint!

The rest of her bedding is from Garnet Hill with the exception of the Dotography throw blanket which is from Mackenzie Childs.

When I was home at my parents over the summer I found this sweet handmade quote from Sugarboo & Co. that I knew I had to get for Eloise’s room. Hanging it above her bed ended up being the perfect spot for it and I love the sweet message.

Another piece I struggled to find for a while was a nightstand. It was the last furniture piece I needed and I just wasn’t having any luck. I wanted to keep everything vintage or second hand as much as I could and I was starting to get impatient when I found the perfect one!

It needed some work but it was only $25 so it was totally worth it. I stripped it down and gave it a fresh coat of stain and some new knobs and I couldn’t be happier about the transformation. They are the Engraved Flower Metal Knobs from Hobby Lobby.

The last thing I want to talk about on this side of the room is the globe sconce above the nightstand. There was no light there before and we didn’t want to have an electrician come, so I used the magic light trick from Brooke over at Nesting with Grace.

You can check out more over on Instagram under Eloise’s Room Highlight on my profile, but basically, I used a battery powered puck lights inside the sconce. It comes with a remote and you can turn it on and off that way which allows you to buy and use a hardwired sconce without hardwiring it! So genius!

Alright, let’s talk about the wall to the left when you first walk in! I could have put a lot of things here like another dresser, or a bookshelf, but I had this little IKEA table we weren’t using anymore and wanted to give it new life.

I spray painted the frame of the table and chairs white and then added some leftover floral wallpaper from her closet to the tops using some heavy duty Mod Podge.

It’s the perfect spot for her to sit and color or eat a snack and she LOVES to hang things on her elephant hooks (which used to be in her nursery). They were from Land of Nod but aren’t around anymore 🙁

Another vintage piece in her room is her dresser which I found at a local antique store. It’s such a perfect size for her and she can reach all her clothes that are in it without a problem.

I kept things simple over here and brought in the faux fiddle that used to be in my office nook in our bedroom. Maybe when she’s older we’ll graduate to a living plant, but for now, faux is the way to go.

The lamp is also from Land of Nod that I used in her first nursery. The books, and mirror are thrifted, the elephant statue was a gift and the dream catcher is from our trip to Costa Rica earlier this year.

Ok on to the last little area in here – the closet reading nook! I already wrote a post on this so go check out her DIY Closet Reading Nook if you haven’t already.

Since she has two closets and we didn’t need both, I thought it would be so fun to turn one into a little reading area for her. And I’m so glad we did! It turned out so cute and she loves to sit in here and read and hang all her purses up on the hooks.

I used regular wallpaper that was actually super easy to hang, but removable wallpaper is a great option too if you want to switch it out or do something else!

We built this little book holder so she could have a place to keep some of her books nearby. I love that it doubles as something pretty and functional. And I’m totally going to add some of these Books to Empower Girls.

I’m so so happy with how her room turned out! And love that it is filled with so many vintage pieces as well as DIY projects. A lot of love went into creating this space for her and it makes my heart melt to see how much Eloise loves it too.

    Everything came together so beautifully! And I’m insanely jealous/optimistic that the wicker lamp was actually a DIY project. Now I’ve gotta keep my eyes peeled…

    Beautiful room but where is the stimulating parts for children? Colour etc? I would love to sleep in this room but I’m an adult. Sorry but this beautiful room isn’t a child’s room to me. x

    Wow, it’s so pretty! Love the gentle nuances and the new knobs, they look so elegant. Also, the handmade quote is a wonderful additional touch. Your sense for details and combining furniture is fascinating and truly one-of-a-kind!

    Buenas Dias from Costa Rica! Im always excited to read your blog and see the magic you create. This girls room makeover is beautiful. Even though I don’t have any children, it’s one of my favorites you’ve done. I especially love how you incorporate your decor with items that are new, ‘designer grade’ with repurposed ‘yard sale’ grade. The balance that you achieve by doing this is very affective. I love it! And of course the dream catcher from Costa Rica touches my heart.

    Have a fantastic day and know you have a big fan in Central America.
