Her room had originally had a pink theme going on as when she had moved in it she was your typical little girl and had wanted a pink room. In fact I remember at the time that she had complained it was not pink enough but now as practically a tweenager she no longer wanted pink (far too babyish) but her favourite colour turquoise.
The challenge of course was to transform a room on a budget. We have I think managed admirably and we are all (including her) really pleased with the result. Some things have had to stay because they were either too expensive to replace or no alternative could be found, stuff like her desk chair, ceiling light and blind. However I think the pink accents against the turquoise go rather well and if it was literally all shades of blue and turquoise it would be too much.
|This is probably the best view of the room - you can see the two shades of turquoise on the walls, the new sparkly curtains, the Lebus chest and the sparkly lamp!|
|My biggest bargain - the little Lebus chest of drawers which really make the room - spot my beautifully made curtains again too!!|
|All the turquoise hooks and handles and the clever new drawers made by Rollercoaster Dad|
|Here you can see the accented shelves and the turquoise bendy lamp from Ikea - for reading in bed!|
|Some of her things fitted in already like the Fimo unicorn we made a couple of years ago, her soft toy rabbit's sparkly outfit and then we painted the shelves in the darker turquoise to store all the craft stuff.|
|One bonus we didn't plan on was the reflected sparkle from the fluffy rabbits sparkly dress - it really is a disco bunny! At the right angle it makes the room look like it has a glitter ball.|
