First up, I chose a comforter. I figured that would be the foundation for everything else. I decided to go with THIS ONE from Target. I thought it was a good fit because it was girly, but a little bit grown-up too. My daughter also loves hot pink.
I had been scouring Goodwill to try to find a lamp I liked. Which, by the way, if you're looking for something particular, visit during the holidays! Everyone is trying to make room for all of their new goodies. I scored this beauty for $5.
I decided to spray paint the base a gloss black ($7), which I also used on another project. I got super giddy when I found silver glitter spray paint at JoAnn's. It was about $3. I also bought a pink satin ruffle trim for the top and bottom. That was another $3. So, I'm chalking the total cost up to about $15. And, this is how it turned out:
I wish you could see it in person - that glitter shade is amazing!
The next project was to re-use the old pictures that were already in that room. The frames are already black and in really good shape, so I just needed to replace the pictures. I decided to buy some pretty scrapbook paper. I found the perfect sheets and just finished them off with a few rhinestones on top.
It would be an understatement for me to say that I can't wait for this room makeover to come together. I may be channeling my inner 9-yr old just a little bit. It will be a few weeks, but I want to share the end result with you all. The wait will be so worth it. ;)
