The Perfect Space ~ Grace's Teen Bedroom Reveal

Right before Christmas we began work on bringing Grace's "little girl" room up to date and giving it a look more appropriate for a teen aged young lady. 

Grace selected the comforter set which is one of those "Bed in a Bag" deals we found at Macy's. From there Grace chose a paint color called Crystal Blue from Benjamin Moore and her once distressed shabby chic furniture was painted a crisp white. 

A fun faux fur ottoman from Home Goods provides a good place for Grace to strum on her guitar or simply put on a pair of shoes.

On the wall above her guitar are two framed faux magazine covers I created using my favorite editing site PicMonkey!

Just above the mirror hangs a picture from an old calendar with a saying I think perfectly describes adolescence.

We decided to forego curtains and instead installed these pretty white faux wood shutters from Home Depot. They let in the perfect amount of light for any time of the day while also providing the privacy a growing girl needs.

A cute picture holder I found in a thrift shop in Bucks County Pennsylvania called Good Stuff Thriftis hung next to her window along with a much needed hook rack just below for Grace's book bag, handbags, et cetera.

The previously painted hot pink yard sale vanity now has a cool blue color to coordinate with her room. It's paired with a darling faux fur desk chair, another great buy from Home Goods.

Finally the polka dots on the fun new lamp shade from Home Goods is mimicked on the wall opposite Grace's bed. The wall dots are actually decals I purchased online from a company call WNL (Walls Need Love). Grace plans to eventually hang some of her artwork on the big empty wall. 

I can't tell you how excited Gracie is about her new room. She is so thrilled in fact that I have yet to have to ask her if her room is clean and if the bed is made, and that is an amazing thing for my daughter!

Have a great day and don't forget to stop back tomorrow evening for our 104th Share Your Style Link Party!

  1. Oh I love her new room and she is so pretty. Everything turned out perfect.

  11. The makeover is quite beautiful. I love the ways she can personalize like the empty wall space.

  12. i totally love it, just the right amount of practicality and frivolity if that is a word. Crisp and clean and fresh---with a nod to vintage---making it timeless. Grins and thanks, Sandi
