The two younger girls have shared a room since Dustin and I got married. Elliott and Eloise, also known as E2, are just over a year apart, feisty, and super girly. We wanted to surprise them with a fun room makeover since the room they are currently in is pretty bad. One of our first goals with this new house is to get the kids’ bedrooms in working order and help the kids get settled. Since Elliott’s birthday was approaching in March, we thought it was the perfect time to do a rapid fire girl’s bedroom renovation!
We had excellent bones in the room with beautiful built-ins beside the large window. Since we wanted the two twin beds in the room, the best layout would be under the built-ins, but we would need to reconfigure them a bit. The bottom of the built-ins had a cabinet, so Dustin’s plan was to remove and make a wall instead that the beds could sit in front of. When discussing what they’d like for their bedroom, both were adamant for pink walls! We already had the two twin Jenny Lind bed frames, white comforters, and floral sheets, and just needed a jumping off point for the rest.
We knew we wanted the girl’s bedroom to be on the girlier side to match their personalities, and introduce a lot of whimsy. We have been seeing those fun bubble chandeliers everywhere so we thought it would be the perfect room to have some fun! And the rest came together pretty easily.
I showed some behind the scenes on my Instagram which showed the pretty awful paint situation (I am talking neon green and gray blue walls…). Our initial plan was to bust out the room update in a weekend to surprise the girls, but of course we may have bit off more than we could chew, by a week or two. (We had the best of intentions!).
The girl’s bedroom was my first mood board (but not first room design, follow me on Pinterest here) and it was quite a learning experience! It was cool to see the vision come together in one space and really envision what the room would look like when finished. I also linked the sources below. Keep scrolling to see the before pictures!

And here are the before shots! Pardon the lighting, but you can see the great bones we are working with in the girls’ bedroom, with some extremely unfortunate paint choices. The room itself needed a really good cleaning, new carpet, and lots of caulking and hole filling from over the years. But a great canvas to work with! We love the high ceilings, large windows, sturdy built-ins, and plenty of space.
Stay tuned for progress and finished product! The girls are THRILLED and it came out even better than we envisioned. Now to start planning the little GIRL nursery! Oh, and finish this room, and the current downstairs renovation…
