Lillie and Lola's New Room (Not Quite Finished But Getting There!)

Although I still have a few more projects I'd like to do in here, Lillie and Lola's room is almost finished! The two main projects I have left to do in here are upholstering their headboards to they look a little less shabby chic and I may possibly monogram them. And then making little benches for the ends of their beds. I also would like to add a little interest to their drapery panels. Other than that though I am pretty much done. It sure feels nice to have one space feel pretty completely. We are making quite a bit of progress on the downstairs but this is the only room we have touched so far upstairs.

Here are some "before" shots next to how it currently looks:


The girls really wanted a bright pink room. I didn't really want to paint the walls bright pink so I thought doing a wallpaper with bright pink flowers and lots of bright pink accents throughout the room would still make the room feel very bright and very pink but still be something that I would like too. I have to say I love it now as much as they do!

We sell both these prints in our shop and the beautiful shoes are from our newest sponsor, Joyfolie!

Dana gave this little piggy bank to Lillie a few years ago - maybe for her first birthday?

Lillie has an owl and Lola has a pig that they sleep with every night from their best friend's Chloe and Bayley.

On this wall we just tacked up two pieces of string and Lillie has been regularly changing out the artwork.

The chandelier was a gift from my mom and dad when I was pregnant with Lillie and doing her nursery so it made the move with us.

We spray painted this old birdcage that I got seven years ago at an antique shop and also fixed it up a little (it had been pretty neglected the last few years out on our back porch). I didn't do the best job protecting the floor in the garage so now it is dusted in a nice coat of bright pink. The girls think it's pretty but let me just say it is not! Then I used some leftover wallpaper to very quickly make this "racing flag" as Lillie calls it.
