Kenley's Big Girl Bedroom Reveal

Kenley's room is probably one of the most completed rooms at the moment in our new home.  Aside from a fresh coat of paint,  everything is the same from her last bedroom. We switched the color from SW Vaguely Mauve to BM Frosty Pink.   The girls firmly identify themselves and their belongings as Ashlynn = Purple and Kenley = Pink.  Sometimes, I encourage them to branch out and show independence in their opinions and picking whatever strikes their fancy, but usually they stick to the plan and I won't deny them of their pink and purple phases. It'll most likely be tossed aside with their princess dresses one day too soon.

Bed Frame: thrifted and chalk painted | Bedding Set: Xhilaration
Chair: Ikea Extorp Jennylund | Pillow:  Skoope Home via Brickyard Buffalo 
Unicorn: White Faux Taxidermy Pom Trim Curtain Panels:  DIY (tutorial, similar)

Our new house features 9' ceilings on both floors, which is really nice added bonus.  However, the curtains I added black pom trim to, are now a foot too short for ceiling to floor.  Instead of the hassle of making new ones, I just made due and hung a curtain rod right over the blinds.  

Currently, we keep minimal if any toys in the girls rooms.  We have enough space in the loft that it gives me them one less space to keep tidy.  Books and stuffed animals pretty much full up the space and the bedroom is mostly for sleeping or having quiet time to wind down with a story.   I mentioned Kenley's favorite story is Twelve Dancing Princesses and we read it nightly.  She also can recite Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? in it's entirety.  

Dresser:  Ikea Hemnes 
Peach Knobs: Anthropologie  | Gold Knobs: DIY painted gold | Lamp:  Target Threshold
Mother Daughter Print:  RK Designs  | K Initial:  Michaels (DIY painted gold)
Happy Girls are the Prettiest Print:  A Painted Arrow | 'Hello' Sign:  Simply Sawdust (DIY Painted)
Shamrock Print:  DIY | Hanger:  Initialee 
Wall Frames:  Ikea Ribba (DIY painted gold), Sondrum

The ikea dresser is still holding together nicely and offers more than enough storage.  The gallery wall is identical to her last room, but 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'.  The dresser and frames fit perfectly between her bedroom door and walk in closet. 

I'm still looking for the right decor to place over her bed.  It was something I never completed in the last house and hope to do here.  I've been looking for a faux floral swag, but just haven't found anything that matches what I imagine in my head.   I also am considering repainting her bed frame, but it's just not a priority at the moment.  Her bedding has held up really well, despite being incredibly cheap.  I also snagged a second set of sheets during a clearance sale. The moroccan pouf went seamlessly from a nursery chair footstool to a launch pad into her bed.  I love when things can continue being functional.

Now, if only the rest of the house can de-clutter itself and I'd have some content!
