Green With Envy: Big Girls Room

Green With Envy: Big Girls Room
Submitted By The Weekend Homemaker
My daughter’s big girl bedroom has been a year (or so) in the making and I’ve shared some pictures and projects along the way. However, I’ve never shown the whole room or a before and after.  I think I’m most proud of this room because I was able to use Craigslist, garage sales, eBay and my own handiwork for most of the items in her room and to lower cost.
Although her nursery and big girl bedroom use the same color combinations (greens, pinks, yellows, and whites), her nursery colors were more pastel. They were very soothing for a baby but for a big girl, we wanted something more vibrant and fun.

Below are some links to other posts or websites for additional information about certain pieces.

  1. Love, love LOVE this room! The little bird drawer pull is adorable! All the details are perfect – you’re little girl is a very lucky “big” girl indeed. You have done a beautiful job.

    PS: Love the color!

  2. I love the curtain fabric. I had found a basket with that same fabric lined within. I wanted to do my girls’ room with that also.
    I never did end up using it but still a chance.
    You have re-inspired me. I also love the green paint.
