Home Reno 2022: The Girls’ Bedroom

Home Reno 2022: The Girls’ Bedroom

Today I am sharing the details of Scout and Millie’s bedroom for part 3 of the Home Renovation series. If you missed part 1, I explained that we added onto the back of our home at the beginning of the year. Before this room got a makeover, it slept all three older kids. There was no theme or aesthetic, just function. Now, it has both function and pretty details and I just love how fun and girly it is! The beautiful light fixture that we found at an antique store and the Rifle Paper Company rug were the inspiration for the whole room.

Their closet appears purple in this photo! It is not; I can assure you it’s not.

PAINT

WALLS: Benjamin Moore Tissue Pink at 50%

TRIM + CEILING: Sherwin Williams Pro Classic White in high gloss

 

DETAILS

RUG: Rifle Paper Company Willow Sky Power-Loomed Rug in 8 x 11

LIGHT FIXTURE: From an antique store in Charleston; we paid to have it wired for light bulbs because it was designed to hold candles. 

BEDS: Linden Twin Size Bed in White. Great price but not very fun to put together. You definitely need to buy a boxspring if you get this bed because they do not have a ton of support rails under where the mattress goes. The mattress would deeply sink in without a box spring. We got box springs locally that were very inexpensive. 

MATTRESS: Engineered Sleep ES Beginnings 9″ Medium Hybrid Plus (at the time of me writing this, I have a code for 15% off at Engineered Sleep! Code is “NAPTIME”)

BEDDING: Crate & Kids Modern Organic Waffle Weave Striped Pink Quilt

SHEETS: Target Mermaid Cotton Sheet Set

BLINDS: Classic Cordless Woven Wood Blinds in Golden Poppy. *Note: they do not block light well

I regret not getting a lining on the blinds. In the daylight they do not block a lot of the light and I do wish it could get darker if they wanted to take a nap.

THE CLOSET

This was added onto their room and is technically part of the addition to the house. Their old closet was lost when we moved the bathroom and created the hallway to the addition. Thankfully, they were able to work a closet into the back of their room. It is a huge score for us! Holds a ton. We really cared that the girls would be able to reach their hangers. Storage was the top priority here as well. I really want to get a fun picture to hang about the drawers.

We added simple white command hooks so they could put out their outfit for the next day.

FLOORING *closet only: Carbonized Strand Smooth Wide Plank Engineered Click Bamboo Flooring 3/8″ x 5 1/8″. We used this flooring throughout the entire addition, which included the closet in the girls’ room. It really matches the pre-existing floors in the house well as you can see from the transition into the room.  

DRESSER: Charlton Home 6 Drawer Solid Wood Dresser. We found that a lot of dressers are too long, typically around 60 inches and we needed something under 50 inches. These fit the ticket. 

 

Still on the hunt/in process:

Bedside table with some book storage and a drawer.

Some sort of fun painting above drawers in closet.
