Big Girl Room

There’s something about designing a little girl’s room that just makes you happy.  It’s like reliving all the pink and sparkly glory days of your childhood, but getting to put your own grown-up spin on it because they are too little to really make any of the decisions.  Best. Client. Ever.

This is our daughter’s room right now.  (Professional pics because our house is FOR RENT!)

We have the queen mattress and boxspring that was our guest bed on the floor, and the headboard is a DIY piece, courtesy of my amazing sister and brother-in-law.

I found an inspiration image I loved and the dimensions (which took forever to find, so you’re welcome ;) ) and had my contractor cut plywood to these specs.  My only modification to this was that we made the crown 8″ high instead of the suggested 9″.   Enter: foam, batting, fabric, and a trusty staple gun.

Because the mattress is on the floor, there’s nothing to attach it to the headboard, so the headboard just sits on the floor, too.  It has enough support from the height of the mattress and boxspring to keep it in place, and it’s super comfy to lean against while we read books. :)

In the new house, her room is much smaller, so no queen bed.  Plus, do you really need a queen bed when you’re 3?!  Here’s the design board I made for her room.  I’m so excited to install everything and will definitely share pictures!

Think she’ll like it?  Who cares, I love it!  ha
