I recently ran into an old high school friend from way back in the day and she asked me to redo her one year old’s bedroom. I was ecstatic and accepted the challenge!
Esmee is a sweet girl that wanted a pretty room to sleep in with a special place to read her books. She can’t talk so she didn’t make any special requests. 🙂 My friend Kabao was hoping for a bright colored room with pink mingled in along with a chandelier.
To save on the project, we reused her twin bed, the heart sign from Home Goods, the pink and white striped sign, the white dresser, the book organizer, and the small pink chair from Gordmans. It saved quite a bit of money in the end!
First, I decided on a color that would set the stage for the rest of the room. The color is Behr Tidewater from Home Depot in Satin. Since a chandelier was on the list, I got one for a decent price at Home Depot for $79.99, It’s 14 inch diameter is perfect for the room!
I got to painting over that icky olive color… no offense Kabao! It felt so much better in the bright shade of aqua teal that tidewater is. The hubby then installed the new chandelier and it instantly became a princess’ room.
I hung up new white blockout curtains at the moms request, but we plan on switching them out for the 96″ length since they are a tad short. We put a second pair over the closet to create a dramatic effect on something not so dramatic… 🙂
I hung up some cute artwork from a few different stores and included some garland that the family used for Esmee’s 1st birthday party.
Here is the before and after!
The before and afters are staggering! Esmee is a lucky girl!
And Esmee is already reading in her new room! We didn’t even tell her to do that, haha!

I love this makeover and it was done with budget in mind. It’s always great to be able to incorporate into your new design.
Thanks for stopping by and ta-ta for now!
