I know I’ve been missing in action for more than a few months but rather than discuss all the very boring reasons I haven’t been around (like less projects happening and less time to report on the few I have been doing), let’s just get to it, okay?
Sophia recently turned 10 (how did THAT happen??) and her big gift for her birthday was a bedroom update. She got a new headboard, bedding, a recycled rug (we got a new one for the living room and moved the old living room rug into her room), plus a full closet makeover. I also made a no-cost bulletin board for her with some old stuff we had around the house. Let’s see how it came out:
Her new white velvet headboard is from Amazon, the chevron shams and white studded pillow are PB Teen, the pillow cases (and matching sheets) and the turquoise pillow are from Target, and the pink cashmere one is an old one we had from Ann Taylor. The furry blanket on the end of the bed was a cheap Marshalls find.
Sophia also recently made some washi tape updates: some stripes on her nightstand, a “framed” jewelry display and some decorations on her lightswitch.
Her curtains and her corner shelf are the same.
I can’t remember if she had the turquoise marquee heart when I last shard her room. It’s from Target but I don’t think they carry it anymore. Sorry! You can find a similar one here.
She wanted a bulletin board so I took an old one I had in the attic and spray painted the frame gold. Then I covered the cork with some old wallpaper that I’ve had in the attic for years. (See? Hording craft supplies does pay off!)
I love that she put up a mix of photos, some pages from the Crewcuts catalog, and pictures of her favorite stars (like Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor) that she cut out of M magazine. (I love that my
little big girl loves magazines as much as I do!)
Her desk/vanity looks pretty much the same. I think it’s her favorite thing in her room!
But her closet is totally new! I’m hoping to write a post with all the details of the makeover soon.
I love how the rug pulls the room together.
It’s been a gradual evolution over the last four years but hopefully it’ll stay like this for awhile. (Knowing Sophia, it won’t. I wonder where she gets that need to make changes all the time?)
Here are all the other posts I’ve written about her room if you want to see the changes.
A New Old Desk by “Sophia at Home” (the one where Sophia remodels a deks for her room)
Sophia’s Room Update (the one where she gets a new mattress and we rearange the layout)
House Tour: Sophia’s Room Part Two (the one with all the resources)
House Tour: Sophia’s Room Part One (the one with the inspiration pictures and ideas)
I’ll be back soon with all the details about her closet remodel. (You will not believe the before and afters!)
