Pink and Purple Girls Bedroom

We decided it was time to update Elena's bedroom. We tore out the shag carpet, picked up some paint and gathered all of our garage sale finds and we got to work!

Elena painted her new, (garage sale find) desk chair in a soft shade of bubble gum pink.

She did such a nice job and she was so happy to add some pink into her purple walled bedroom.

We made the headboard from shutters, another garage sale find - $7.00 for all four! They were dirty and a dirty shade of gray, so I quickly cleaned them up and white-washed them and secured them to the wall. We hung a few hooks, a few of her baby dresses to finish it off.

We set up a little vanity area for her with an old (garage sale find) tri-fold mirror, a $5.00 garage sale desk and her freshly painted chair.

These shutters were a junk (treasure) hand-me-down from my sister. We screwed cup hooks into them and turned it into a lovely jewelry display, fit for a princess!

Elena and I spent several days working on this project. It was so fun to take our treasures we had purchased at garage sales and jazz them up a bit to fit our needs. I hope we get to do many more projects together!
