A Transformation, Tiffany Princess style

I'm back! Well, sort of.....

But, I am joining several parties this week to show off my bedroom transformation.

The room started out like this:

051009 008

Kind of boyish, don't you think?

My step son was in this room, so it was decorated for his taste. (he has since moved into our FROG, aka Finished Room Over the Garage incase you hadn't heard the term)

More of the room:

I know, I know...yes, there is really a strand of lights around the window. Happened around Christmas and just stuck around for several years.

051009 011

The room is actually pretty large so he had a sitting area in there.

Here is the room now!

Transformed into my daughters Tiffany Blue bedroom. Pictures don't do it justice (taken at night-shame shame), but I just love how it turned out.

My wonderful husband made those wooden boxes that the lights are hanging from. I painted them white, added a tension rod to the inside and hung white lights and tulle from the rod. I wanted a canopy feel, but not round and over the beds. Make sense?

And I haven't finished accessorizing it yet. I have a stained glass piece (made by a friend of mine) that I am going to hang in that window between the beds and I am not crazy about that desk there either. Maybe if I add a little stool? Suggestions are welcome!

This is the wall where the TV was in the last 'before' picture.

I found the shelf months back at Goodwill and painted it, put her monogram on it (LOVE vinyl letters!) and hung her hospital going home outfit on it. And the picture is from her newborn photo shoot and the matte has all her hospital visitors' signatures (and notes to her), even my doctor!

I love this little corner so much!

Very cute! I love the color. Maybe if you antiqued the desk white, it would break up all the brown and make the room look a little lighter. I do like where it is, though.

Your "canopy feel" lights look fantastic! And I love the wall color with those dark toned beds and white linens.

Debbie said...

It looks great! I love the colors and how you created a canopy with the tulle and lights. Those are beautiful beds.

You have created a very nice room for your daughter.

Your bedroom transformation turned out beautifully, I'm sure your daughter loves it! And I love the boxes your husband made and you painted that hold the lights, really clever! Great job!

Lora said...

A beautiful redo!! Love that blue!

KarenB said...

Those beds are gorgeous! I actually did my daughter's room this color. She's a college student, so it's probably too grown up for your little girl, but you may get some ideas. You can see the post here,

Mama Byrd said...

LOVE this!!! Where did you get the monogram from?

Becolorful said...

Very pretty. A great change up from all the pink I see for little girls and she must love those lights. I did a skyscraper mural for my son with glow in the dark paint so at night the windows lit up. Even though he just left for college this fall and I am redoing his room, he asked me not to paint over that. She will remember those lights long after they are gone. Beautiful.

Love the Tiffany Blue! It looks great with the dark wood. Thanks so much for sharing at the POPP.

Cheryl said...

What a fun room. Plenty of room to add all kinds of fancy stuff :-)

Sherry said...

I really like the tulle and lights. That was a very good idea. We put a tent up for the boys one time in the house and we put lights on top to look like stars above. Fun how creative you get for your kids.:)

Sandy said...
