Girls Fancy Bedroom Makeover

I’ve been dreaming of this day for over six months, to be finished with my Girls Bedroom Makeover and reveal and share it with all of you! If you remember back last fall, I begged everyone I knew to vote for my girls in a room makeover. We were in the top ten, and they made the cutest little video with a song that we’ve been singing for 6 months….”We need our room to be, the cutest that you’re ever ever gonna see” (to the tune of Katy Perry’s This is a part of Me). With each little element we’ve placed in their room, my youngest keeps saying, “Our room is going to be soooo cute” and as I tucked them into bed last night, I finally said, “Your room is DONE!” We laid in the bed and looked around, I couldn’t stop smiling. I love it so much, and I’m so happy that they do, too.

Enjoy lots of fun pictures, and in the coming days, I’ll share tutorials and tips on how I put together each element. So keep checking back!

      thank you thank you kimberley! It’s fun to hear the specifics of what you love–I’m so excited the chandelier worked out–I was so worried it wouldn’t!

  10. Good job! How fun for your girls. They have a great little space. I love the chandelier and the magnetic board!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Thank you, Jenny! I am so happy to hear specifics of what you love, the chandelier was a first for me, so glad it turned out ok!

  11. This is lovely Kristen!! So many colours into it! It’s a lovely, happy place to share with your sister. I LOVE IT!
    How do your daughters manage sharing a bed?

    I think my favourtites are the bunting and the wooden sign on top of the window.


    • Kristen Duke says:

      Yay, so glad you love the bunting and wooden sign! They are small still, so share a bed just fine. It does have a top bunk that we can attach later if they run out of room!

  12. Awesome! Amazing! Incredible!! You are so good!!! Congrats to all of you for pulling it off so splendidly!

    My favorite is the lantern… but the entire room is amazing!!

  14. Jacqueline says:

    You did a great job pulling it all together! My favorite part is the inspirational quotes!!

  15. Colette says:

    It is absolutely darling, kristen! I’m sure they’re gonna love that vanity. :) I like that magnetic board to show off their creations!

  16. You did SUCH an amazing job!!! My little girl would be in heaver in that room… thanks for all the wonderful and creative ideas!!

  19. What a cute, fun room! Lucky little girls!

  23. Their room looks beautiful, Kristen!!! I love it and all the creative ideas you incorporated – it’s just amazing!

  24. Jenny Whiting says:

    This is such a beautiful room! I love it. I have three boys and 1 girl (girl is 7, 2nd oldest) and I wish so much that she had a sister to share a room with. Of course, she wishes the same. On your gallery wall post, I had to chuckle when you said you worried about the 4 year age difference between your girls. I would just love, love, love to have two girls, no matter what the age difference. Sisters are the best! Anyhow… I really love the planked wall and look forward to your tutorial. I am hoping to talk my husband into doing a plank wall soon, maybe even this week. I’m curious about what kind of material/wood you used. As always, your pictures and quotes are all beautiful! Love the sign over the window! I will have to copy that. Great job!

  25. I love the fun use of color – I bet she loves her room!

  31. Oh my cute! I have two girls that share a room as well. They used to share a queen, but we did some rearranging of beds and now they have two twins and I am trying to find something cute for them. (Pinterest is so fun for that, but I don’t know how to work with wood yet, but I am trying to get brave) They would love so many aspects of that room! I personally love the way you made the walls look! I think I’d like to try that in my kitchen (of course not pink:) Such a great job! I am sure I will be back to get some inspiration. We are working with a cute blue pallet. Hoping to get going on some ideas now the weather is getting better in Idaho to take stuff out to paint!

  32. Wow – so bright and colourful! My mom would never have let me have these colours!!!

    So pretty

  35. This is absolutely STUNNING! I love everything from the stenciled ceiling, to the flags, to the pink subway walls, to the the posters and signs. You doing an amazing job and your girls are so lucky!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Thank you so much Andrea, it really means a lot to hear back from everyone after all of my work, but the biggest prize is my girls adoration!

  36. You haven’t posted about your weight loss lately – you look great! Where do you keep all the clothes for the 2 girls!?

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Funny you mention it…I’m posting about my weight loss on Thursday–my one year anniversary!! I keep the girls clothes in their HUGH closet! I have another dresser in there along with space to hang, then the one dresser out in the room.

  37. This is totally adorable! I love the bright, girly colors, the bunting, the fun frames, everything! I found you at Lil’ Luna– thanks for sharing!

My Citrus Inspired Kitchen Makeover brings me happiness, even it isn’t 100% how I’d like it. You see, my husband LOVES the cabinetry in our kitchen. The man doesn’t have much of an opinion about our home projects, but on my desire to paint the cabinets white (as we did in our last home) he has expressed his strong desire not to. I gotta let him have something, so this was one I decided not to push–for now.
