Yes....another bedroom makeover. And I swear if I see another paint roller I will scream! Okay...that's a lie, because I love room makeovers! Would you like to see what I've done so far?
Whitney is turning 9 this month and getting her own room. She was previously sharing with Kate, but this whole waking up early for school thing just isn't working because Kate is a MONSTER if she doesn't get enough sleep. So, I told Whitney that I was going to let her choose her own bedroom design. She looked around and decided that she wanted a zebra theme room since zebras are her favorite animal. So...we started pulling all of the ideas together.
My friend Gina scoured the internet and she found this picture:
(Thank you, Gina!!!)
And Whitney jumped up and said (well, more like jumped up and shrieked), "THAT'S IT!!! OH MY GOSH, I LOVE IT!" And I had to admit, it was pretty dang cute.
First step was letting her pick the paint for her room. She ended up picking Benjamin Moore Peony.
Then, after more looking around we found this zebra head from Anthropologie.
She wanted it soooo bad. But for $70!?! HECK.NO! So, I took all of the cereal bags out of the cereal boxes in the house, got out my scissors and glue gun and got to work. 9 hours later there was a giant paper mache zebra head hanging on her wall!
Then, I found zebra bedding at Walmart...which, surprisingly is really cute and really good quality!
We are going to pair it with some hot pink sheets.
Still on our "to find list" is a great big black chandelier wall decal...
Or a real one...this one is at Target!
And some cute zebra wall art like some zebra print canvases
Or a giant zebra vinyl wall decal....
And some cute throw pillows (hellooo etsy!)
That's it for now! I'll tell you about the dresser makeover in my next post, but it's not quite finished yet! I love how it's all coming together, though.
So...whadda'ya think? Do you know of any fun things to add to the room?
