Maddie's room

The kids recently moved bed rooms so it was a great time to make them a little more grown up. Their new rooms will carry them through till they move out. I think it is harder to "decorate" kids rooms as they get older. They have their own opinions and and are in more control of their stuff.

Maddie likes her stuff and what I see as clutter sometimes she sees as treasure. She decided where things would be hung and what would be hung, more than before. Another lesson in letting go, I guess!

 When we moved in this room had no window or closet and was painted really dark. We put a window in and repainted and I love how cheerful it is! New carpet, through out the house, is on the list, the very long, $$$ list!!

Bedding from Target, Smile picture from Pier 1, night stand from Costco, teal switch plate from Hobby Lobby.

a place for treasures.

teal cube and cubbies  from Target, 

The little vanity was from my Grandma house, it is perfect since she shares a bath room with Conner. It has been this peachy color my whole life. Someday I will stop being so sentimental, paint it white, and add those cute teal glass knobs I bought. ;)

This is her closet until we put the closet in, it will be soon. It is just a metal wardrobe. We wanted a way to "Close the door" in other words "hide the stuff" so I put a shower curtain up, I simply hooked the shower hooks to the metal frame. It works well for now.

My favorite part is her gallery wall. I did one in the stair way and both kids requested their own. These are mostly clearance and garage sale finds. It is a wonderful reminder of who she is and where she came from. 

I still plan on switching the ceiling lights to cute, little chandeliers, but I want them cheap... oil cloth to cover the vanity stool, and of course a real closet. 

The paint color is Spa from Sherwin Williams. 

I'm linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick for May Show us your House. If I could figure out how to put the cute button here I would! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! ~Shelby
