I have a kid obsessed with princesses and fairies. BUT she refuses to sleep in her own room. In an effort to remove her from my bed and get some one on one time back with my husband, I am wanting to redo her room from nursery to a spectacular uber-princessed posh room. BUT I also HATE spending a lot of money- I’m kinda cheap and frugal that way. I would rather refinish old furniture than buy new, and I would rather make her bed linens than buy new as well.
So- this is what I’m inspired by:
And…these are the fabrics:
I have a black sleigh bed that will be repainted white and I plan on painting a couple of bookcases and an organizational square thingy white as well. It’s a huge project- and I’m almost guaranteeing that it will not be flawless. But I hope she loves it.
The funny thing about this is- I’m NOT girly. I never have been. I’m a tomboy. I played in the dirt, caught frogs, played sports. I didn’t own a purse until I was 24. I didn’t get a pedicure until 27. So for me, all this princessy pukey pink that was so nauseating before I had a kid, is now a pursuit to unlock my inner girly side. Anyone who knows me, especially my mother, is laughing their butts off because I gave birth to the biggest girly girl ever. But…confession…it’s *kinda* fun. I love creating all this girly crap.
