Lena’s Room Reveal

{If you’re new here, you may want to follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest.}

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!



 There’s not a room in our home without a chalkboard, and this one references Lena’s favorite song (You are my sunshine).  To see how you can get perfect chalkboard lettering, click HERE.


 I painted all Lena’s furniture with Annie Sloan chalk paint.  To see a full tutorial on chalk paint, click HERE.


I made this felt flower garland that I strung across the back wall.  To see how you can do it too, 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.


 The rag bunting above Lena’s window is another DIY project you can do, too!  Click HERE for more info.


 Basically her room is full of things that are pretty and fun – just like my little Lena.


sincerely, sara d.
