I’ve been working on Lena’s room sporadically, and I decided it’s time to show a full reveal – even though I’m sure her room will continue to be a work in progress.
There’s no real theme, but it was inspired by a gift bag I found at Target:
Seriously. You can find inspiration anywhere! I love the combination of the cream, pink and gold.
Lena had one request: pink walls. So, I painted her room what I thought was a pale pink. Wow. It was PINK. I ended up painting the back wall a pale cream to calm down the pink. It still shines pink, but has more of the lighter pink I envisioned. And Lena hasn’t noticed because the pink off the other three walls makes that cream wall shine on with pink. I’m happy and (more importantly) she’s happy!
I painted all Lena’s furniture with Annie Sloan chalk paint. To see a full tutorial on chalk paint, click HERE.
I covered the shelf above her bed and closet doors with vinyl gold polka dots from Etsy. To buy some for yourself, click HERE.
Basically her room is full of things that are pretty and fun – just like my little Lena.
sincerely, sara d.
