The BIG Reveal: A Big Girl Room: Deployment Project #3

It's Finished!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, not 100%, but I just can't stand to wait any longer.

My 3 year old's room is complete....minus a few tweaks here and there....

Remember when I showed you her room a few months ago?? (Click HERE to go to that post)

Here is a refresher of what her room looked like BEFORE...

And now.....

(Drum roll please....)

You can find the tutorial for my scalloped wall HERE...it's really easy!

Photobucket

The pink duvet was bought on Ebay for $14!!! Then I found the insert for it at Target for $15 on clearance!!! Yay for great deals!
Photobucket


Photobucket

The letters on her bookshelf were once hanging above her crib. I used scrapbook paper and Mod Podge to cover the letters.

We had the bookshelves built in by professionals, since it was a job too big for us. You can read about it HERE.

I made the roman shades you see in her window. Click HERE to see the tutorial on how I made them...

Here are a few other details in the room...

Photobucket
You can find the tutorial on how to make the pillowsham HERE

I made the pillowsham, monograms, the accent pillow and added ric rac to her sheet set for a little extra character...
Photobucket


Photobucket
I found this cute picture frame at TJ Maxx on clearance for $4....SOLD!  I put a picture of my girls in it.... this picture is proof that they DO get a long every now and then!


Photobucket
I picked up the birdcage at Goodwill for $1.91. It was an ugly brassy color...so I just grabbed my pink spray paint and gave it a makeover!
Photobucket

The iron bicycle is actually a garden decoration (the seat is a potholder), but I thought it was the perfect spot for this bunny.
The photo is one of my all time favorites.

Photobucket

I made these canvases with her initials using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge. I believe this project was around $10 to make.

Photobucket

These baskets were in her nursery, but I took out the liners and used them as a pattern to make new ones.
Photobucket

I made this ruffled pillow using the tutorial from House of Smiths
Photobucket


I ordered a pair of bolster pillows off Ebay (I think I paid $20 for both) and made this pillow to go in her bay window. I also monogrammed it and used ribbon to tie up the ends.
Photobucket


This white pillow was made from part of a shower curtain....you will see this again soon when I post my guest bath makeover (currently in progress).
Photobucket

Here is another view of the sheet set I did. I bought a set from Target for $11 and sewed ric rac trim on the flat sheet and pillowcase.....now you can't tell the difference from this set and one from Pottery Barn!!!

Soooooooo, let's take one more look at before & after....

And there you have it.....
a pink and chocolate room fit for a princess!!! 

I am extremly pleased with the way it turned out!!

What do you think??? I'd love to hear!
