I actually didn't think to take before pictures until after I had already worked for an hour Thursday night helping her clean out from under the bed. So here is how the room looked before we started cleaning out the room on Friday night.
On Saturday my friend, Rosie, came over and helped me rearrange furniture and then we went SHOPPING! I was able to purchase decorative items for the room and some organizing bins. I will admit I went overboard on the organizing bins so I now have extra for other rooms. I just couldn't help myself. LOL.
Faith actually bought the inspiration for the rooms decoration with her birthday money. She found a pink guitar wall clock that had peace signs on it and pink neon that she just had to have so she purchased it with her birthday money. Then I found a trash can with peace signs on it that matched and some wall art with peace signs on it.
The next picture shows the reading nook that we created. This is by far Faith's favorite part of the whole room.
For this area I purchased the cube shelf at Target. I removed her old bookshelf from the closet. She always had a hard time keeping the books staight because the shelf was so long the books would tip over and she would get frustrated and just pile the books on it or stack them on the floor. I hoped that having smaller areas would help her keep it organized. The fabric bins each hold a different toy item. These are smaller toys that she has accumulated and didn't want to get rid of. We put a bean bag in her reading area and some pink dry erase dots, which you can see she was already using.
The photo below is her vanity area. We didn't really change much here. Just cleaned it up and organized it better. In her storage ottoman I put a shoe box for her to keep her brushes and lotions and then there is enough space beside the shoe box for her to keep her hair dryer.
The next photo is the inside of her closet. We removed the old bookshelf and toy storage unit and put her dresser and small drawer unit in the closet. The small drawer unit holds her media, gloves & mittens, purses, doll clothes, and dress up clothes in each drawer. Since this picture was taken I have created labels for each drawer. As you can see there is still plenty of storage space in the top of the closet that could be used for storing seasonal clothing, blankets, etc.
The next photo is the completed bedroom. That night after all the photos above were taken we went out to dinner in a different city and my hubby needed to go to Wal-Mart to pick something up. As we were walking through the store we happen to pass by...the bedding to match the curtains...and there was only ONE twin size left! You know that I just couldn't pass that up and, of course, you can't have matching bedding without matching sheets and you can't forget the matching accent pillow! Thank God for an understanding husband! So below is the finished product and I must say that the bedding really completed the room. I couldn't believe how much of a difference just adding curtains and bedding made to the room.
The only problem that I have now is that Faith loves the room so much that now she wants to go in there and shut the door all the time. If you have any other suggestions on something I need to add or different ways to organize leave a comment and let me know.
