House Tour: Sophia’s Room (part 2)

13 Sep

Yesterday, I showed you the inspiration and “before” pictures of Sophia’s room. Now here’s my shopping list for how we put it all together. We had a bunch of elements already but we added the vintage bed and most of the accessories for under $700. But first, one more peek at that beigey “before” shot:

And now to the new room!

Polka dot curtains – Ikea (no longer available but search ebay for Ikea Gronska)

Double curtain rodsPB Teen

Fuzzy bolster pillow – Home Goods (similar here)

Personalized striped pillow – Pottery Barn Kids (similar here)

Small painting – by Sophia on a canvas from Michaels


Lamp – Target (similar here)

Lego alarm clock – Home Goods (similar here)

Reversible tissue box coverHead to Toe 2009 on Etsy (I love these and highly recommend them! I have one in every room.)

Framegift from Sophia’s 1st grade teacher

Corner shelf – Ikea (similar here)

Unicorn taxidermy (only $25!) – SquackDoodle on Etsy

LettersLand of Nod (They have the most extensive line of letters. All styles, lots of prices. I also love the kraft paper ones – you could do anything with them!)

Mirror – Hand-me-down from my mother-in-law. It was brassy gold and I painted it neon pink with craft paint. (Probably not the best paint option but it’s working for now!) I know it looks really low but it’s the right height for Sophia!

Dresser – Leftover from her nursery by Sorelle from Crib Outlet

Ledges – old ones from Pottery Barn

Small “S” art – by me on a canvas from Michaels

FramesIkea and Kohls (I really need to get rid of those black ones. They just don’t work. Maybe I’ll attempt a spray painting fix.)

Gold, navy and pink art – by me on a canvas from Michaels

Canvas bin for stuffed animals – Lands’ End (similar here)

Woven bin for books – Home Goods (similar here)

Sophia’s room sure has come a long way since the Great Wallpaper Stripping Event of 2010!  (Thanks to Sophia’s Uncle Steve and Daddy!)
