Hallie's Room Reveal!

Before we moved out east, my daughter's room was faux painted with shades of pink (back then she was just 5).  It was so cute!  The family that ended up renting our house had 2 boys, so we painted the room a neutral tan before we moved out.  Now that we are back in our home, and Hallie is now almost 8, she wanted to paint her room purple.  We decided on Benjamin Moore "Purple Lace".  

I bought her bed a few years ago off Craigslist.  It started out knotty pine, and I finished it with an Ace off the shelf white.  To read more about her desk/bookshelf transformation, click  here.  The nightstand was a purchase I made at an occasional shop.  To read about the nightstand makeover click here.  I bought the "I Think I Can" print off of Etsy, and I love it.  To see this and more cute stuff visit Miss Jill McDonald on Etsy.

The bedding and curtains are Pottery Barn Teen.  For the frame above her bed, I simply bought a huge framed print at Goodwill, took out the glass and picture and spray painted it.  When it had dried, I used a staple gun to staple the ribbon to the back.  I used small clothes pins from Michael's to pin up some of her favorite artwork and post cards.  The rest of the artwork in the room is done by Hallie : )
