It's reveal day for this colorful girl's bedroom makeover! Attley's room refresh is done and it's magical! Come check it out for yourself!

Hi friends! Most of you know that I've been working on Attley's room for the #newyearnewroomchallenge that my friend Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living put together. By some miracle (despite being taken down by the flu last week), I was able to finish Attley's room! And today is REVEAL day not just for me, but for all of the bloggers who participated in the challenge.

A special thanks to Mohawk Home, The Home Depot and Spoonflower/Roostery Home for gifting us with some products for Attley's room. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy. Before I share the big reveal with you, I wanted to show you what Attley's room looked like when we first moved into our house over 7 years ago. It was a very boring and very BEIGE box. empty bedroom The biggest challenge in the room is that the chimney runs up through this room, creating an awkward niche on the left AND right of the chimney. empty bedroom The changes in Attley's room all began because we decided to upgrade her from a twin size bed to a full-size bed.  Here's a list of the big stuff we did to refresh her room:

  • We painted the ceiling, walls (Falling Snow by Behr) and trim
  • We painted the doors in her room
  • We hung a new light fixture
  • We had NEW carpet installed
  • We installed the fox wall mural
  • We got the new Mohawk Larrabee Area Rug and rug pad in place
  • We got her new closet system installed, including this back of the door storage
  • I painted her used Jenny Lind bed (that I found on the Facebook Marketplace) and got it set up in her room yesterday
  • I hung her new roman shade and curtains for her little reading nook

And here's how her room looks now! YAY! And before you ask, there is a complete source list at the bottom of the post :)  whimsical girl's bedroom with jenny lind bed colorful girl's bedroom with purple dresser I mean!!!! How fun is it?!  My favorite part of the room is her little reading nook, which I put together by adding this simple white storage bench from The Home Depot. I topped it with some cushions and pillows and it's so comfy! The cubbies of this bench are perfect for holding books and baskets. The basket on the left holds her fire escape ladder–so perfect! And I “framed” the reading nook out with these stunning curtains from Spoonflower/Roostery Home. I also added the DIY felt ball letter I made her a few years ago for a touch of whimsy.  colorful girl's bedroom with window seat girl's window seat in colorful room colorful little girl's bedroom I found her awesome bed on the Facebook Marketplace and snapped it up for only $150. It's solid wood and just needed some TLC and paint. Attley picked a pretty coral color and we are both pretty obsessed with how it turned out. I made that print for above her bed with the lyrics from one of her favorite songs from The Greatest Showman and I'm so happy with how it turned out. colorful girl's bedroom with jenny lind bed We did a furniture swap and moved Attley's old dressers and bookcases into Avery's room and brought Avery's dresser into Attley's room and it's PERFECT in here! That beautiful dresser was a roadside find–you can check out this post to see how I restored it. We hung artwork she already had above the dresser. We kept it pretty simple because there's a lot going on in this space with that GORGEOUS wall mural! colorful girl's bedroom with wall mural colorful girl's bedroom colorful girl's bedroom with purple dresser Now let's talk about her desk area. We built these DIY floating shelves and desk area years ago. It was the perfect way to make use of the awkward niche created by the chimney running through her room. We added this simple wood and rattan chair from The Home Depot to finish off this sweet little area perfectly. colorful girl's bedroom with built-in desk Oh, and I can't forget to talk about one of our favorite elements in the room–the gorgeous area rug! The colors and pattern are PERFECTION and it's so soft.  colorful girl's bedroom with window seat What do you think???? Here's some views of her room when we moved in vs. now. You know I can't resist a side-by-side comparison.

  1. Elegant and so much work, but I’m motivated by your creativity. It’s worth getting ideas then having steps to just do it! Wonderful ideas.

  2. Tasha! Her room was already so cool, I didn’t think it could get any better. But you did it! I love all of those rich paint colors you used in here. And that every view is so interesting. I love it!
