So in truth, I have been REALLY struggling with little
Miss Megan's room!
I have tried several bedding options, I painted her bed from green to white; I added a rug. I can't tell you how many curtains I have been through, and so far, I have painted the room 3 times.
NOTHING seemed to hit the spot for me :(
And then I did something totally drastic!
I got her a NEW bed for an early Christmas present and NOW (finally) everything seems to be falling into place.
I scored this bed from DownEast Home for less than $500!!!
Can you believe it? This bed at PBK is normally well over $1500 Dollars PLUS shipping on top of that price,
I LOVE DOWNEAST HOME :)
I downgraded from a queen to a full, and that decision has made all the difference in the room.
I also bought the fun sheer panels! The bed looks INCREDIBLE,
It is TRULY what the room needed!
Then I had to make the decision I have been dreading...
which bedding to go with?
which bedding to go with?
I don't want Megan to feel like she is still in a baby’s room, but at the same time I am NOT ready to let go of the little girl feel either :) And even though she is 9 she seems ok with not having a teenage room. And I am so grateful for that!
So I hope I have created somewhat of an in-between look.
I ended up getting all her bedding either on
clearance on PBK and eBay.
Here is the bedding I went with!(notice)it's the same bedding as the picture above.
Pictures don't even come close to giving this bedding justice!
I ended up ONLY getting the quilt, grey dot duvet cover and grey dot sham and a matching decorative pillow.
I wasn't in LOVE with the quilted sham, so instead I went with the white Euro sham behind the grey dot pillow in the picture below.Usually, I try and piece bedding together and NOT go with the floor model. But I have come to the conclusion that my brain hurts over what to do with Megan’s room, so I just let Pottery Barn Kids do all the work for me this time! :)
I also picked up these darling sheets, ALL on clearance!!
YAY...I love when that happens!
The NEXT crazy thing, in our lives, is painting Megan’s room...Once again!! Have you noticed I have no qualms with changing paint colors? Yep, I think it's a weakness of mine;)
This time we are going with the color
"Silver Chain" from Benjamin Moore
I wanted a color that wasn't pink and felt a little more grown up
And here is what it looks like on the wall
I also LOVE this Rug!! I do have a gift card coming
from Pottery Barn...Hummm?? I might just do it :)
I also have been eyeing these curtains on OVERSTOCK I want them sooo bad...but they are a bit pricey.
I might just have to save my pennies for later
With Megan’s new bed, I did ended up with a slight problem with her chandelier.
The light hit the upper part of the canopy bar. Soooo I have to get the light moved over 18 inches. Crossed fingers, That will be fixed by next week.
Soooo I am hoping in the next 2 or so weeks I will have pictures of her new room to show you all.
And I am HOPING this is the LAST time I worry about this room for a VERY, VERY LONG time :) hehe
