My entry for the Vintage Revivals Epic Room Makeover

This is how my girls room looked just after we moved in 2 years ago. Simple, sweet, and soft. I loved the lavendar and mint green for the baby stage, and it’s been the colors for my oldest since she was a baby (7 years). You can tell, but the comforter is lavendar on her bed, and the baby crib betting is a sweet green and lavendar damask. And butterflies, what little girl doesn’t like butterflies?

Well, we are now out of the crib, and we brought in the bunk bed just a few weeks ago, and we are ready for a change. Change of scenery, change of colors, new bedding needed for the two beds, etc.  Add in a bunch of toys cluttering the area, and now the room is in turmoil. When I saw that my friend Mandi from Vintage Revivals is holding an Epic Room Makeover, I had to do my best to try to get her here to help me! I’ve seen her do it before, and I want to see the mandilicious magic on my girls room!  She’d fly to my house and for a week, and help me create something fun and girly for my little ones. Here is the room in its current state:My friend gave me this awesome mirror, but it is propped up on these pictures that I can’t decide if I’m going to decorate around. I was watching my daughter check out her outfit from it the other day, and I thought…”dang, I need to hang that thing up!”
Mandi, I’d love your help! I keep debating with my daughter over color schemes, can’t decide, and I just need some creative juices flowing around here! With a 7 year old fashionista and a 3 year old, they are both “pre teen” in nature and I can’t figure out how to make it a good fit for both of them.

  1. I’ll be voting for you!

  2. I love the little girls room. It is hard when they grow up and they grow out of the decor. I am facing that problem with my daughter. Can I ask you were you got the bunk beds?

      Yes, it seems like the right time to change things up. The bunk beds are from Pier 1 kids, which is no longer around;(

  3. I am so voting for you! I love that pic of Mandi by the way, and I’d been wondering who had taken it :) Maybe someday you could make me look that fabulous :) haha! Hope you had a great weekend!
