Simple Changes=Big Impact

Earlier this week I revealed my youngest daughter's bedroom makeover. Well, even though my older daughter's room was already sort of done, I couldn't exactly get away with doing nothing to her room. 

Incase you hadn't seen the before, I'll get you up to speed.

The walls were already painted like this when we moved in and truthfully, they are very sweet, just like my Tess. We got the bedding a while back at American Furniture Warehouse (Who'd a thunk?) and while I still like the bedding, there was just way too much pink going on in the room. (Note the curtains. You may recognize them because they are now in Teah's room.) 

And besides there being too much pink, there was also too much furniture. The room just wasn't big enough to handle it all.

So we decided to remove a dresser and rearrange the furniture a bit.

Ready to see what a little rearranging can do?

Much more grown up I think. And we really didn't change much at all.

I did add a little desk to her bedside that actually used to be in our entry
(I'll be talking about that very soon.)

minus the pink knobs of course.

My daughter is five and loves to draw and write.
This desk is the perfect place for just that.

A couple of cute lil' boxes and a lamp from my home away from home Target

 And Tessa has what she refers to as her "office". Love that.

The other side of her bed now houses her bookshelves, which are actually very inexpensive spice racks from Ikea that I spray painted blue to match her wall.

This shelf was also left by the previous owners and the mirror I found at Goodwill for under $10. So fitting for my princess.

I actually made these decorative fans out of scrapbook paper for her old room in our old house. I liked them so much that I decided to keep them.

Good thing I did because they were the perfect addition.
{Here is the tutorial that I used.}

See what a little rearranging and a few minor changes can do?
