My Daughter's Room

I like the idea of transitional childrens' rooms. After the nursery years are gone, I like a room that can double as a guest room and grow with a child into the teenage years. It also seems more budget friendly. I can do a lot more, a lot longer, with this old painted full size bed than with a big castle shaped bunk bed. It doesn't hurt that this bed was free. All it took was lots of cleaning and paint to put her back together and give her a fresh new look.: )



This old bed was about to rot out in my Mom's little barn 8 years ago. She had planned to make a porch swing out of it but I convinced her to give it to me for my guest room. We cleaned it up, I painted it, and completely fell in love with it once it was white!





I got the pair of nightstands for $35. I painted them white and added the little glass knobs. My mom painted the lamp white. The little shelf in the corner I got for a few dollars somewhere a few years back. I painted it white too!








This little desk I recently scored at roundtop for $20.




This rocker and stool were a baby gift and matched her nursery when she was a baby. She had the most AMAZING nursery!


Now I need to get my other daughter's room together. For me, decorating is like a fun version of writing a term paper. Starting is the hard part but once I get going I get really into it. Editing at the end is the best part of all...putting in all the details and finishing touches that really make it shine. I love looking at all of your blogs so much for inspiration and ideas. There are some amazingly creative women on my feed. So glad we can all share our homes with like minded vintage lovers. Have a great day!♥
