I am about to do something I never thought I would do. Like. EVER.
I am about to post a picture of the destruction that is my daughter’s bedroom…in all it’s drawn on, messy, toys everywhere glory. It’s just…bad.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I told you so!
When I moved into this place- my daughter was about 2 and 1/2. The man and I had been separated a few months at this point- so it was totally me and her for a few months. Well- let’s just say she is a budding artiste and often when I was cooking, cleaning, doing something other than hover over her in her room- well- she was “decorating.” Add that to the fact that she is an only child and gets showered with gifts from us, grandma, Tia, and more… well…that makes for a lot of ”my favorite toys” and you get that disaster there. Also- mini blinds and cats? NO BUENO. Cats break blinds. When three fight over a window it kills several at once. Sigh.
So when I was contacted by Lowe’s to be part of their Creative Ideas for Home bloggers… I had to say because if anything could give me a push to get that room in order to be fit for a princess, it was that. Of course, what does someone do when they need a room re-do? I took to Pinterest! I created a board of ideas of how I wanted Sofia’s room to look. My goal is to go from this:
to a combo of this…
with a little…
Yea. Also- keep it under $300 and ok with my landlord. So we chose a few easy fixes, all available at Lowe’s and easy to do.
- Paint (soft pink and soft purple)
- Closet Organizer (yes please god… ORGANIZER)
- Curtains (hate mini blinds- so do my cats)
- Toss a bunch of toys away while she is at school (this one is the hardest)
Did I do it? Well… you’ll just have to come back and check now wontcha! In the meantime, check out Lowe’s on Facebook, Pinterest or their Lowe’s Creative Ideas Blog. By the way- did you know they also have an app for Ipads? Check it out HERE.
