Surprise room makeover

For my daughter's (our Flittering butterfly's) birthday this year we thought we would give her a mini room makeover. We know we will be relocating this spring so we didn't want to paint the room. We stuck strictly to redecorating the room. She shares the room with the baby so we focused on her side of the room and will do our Ape babies half when we move her to a big girl bed.
Here are the befores

We had primed, and painted all the pieces to her bed prior to today. So as soon as she stepped foot on the bus we hustled into high gear and ran all day. We cleared out the room and disassembled her bed. Next we built her headboard (more on this in my next post), then we assembled the new bed, and then finished it up only moments before she got home (literally 30 seconds before she stepped of the bus).

She loves it!! She was totally surprised!

She couldn't wait to fall asleep in her new bed!

  1. Chrissy her room turned out great. That is a very smart make-over because it can move with you. I love her bedframe and box underneath. Did you make the boxframe?? That is a smart use of space. Good job!!!
