A Pink Paris Bedroom...what more could a little girl want!


It was my youngest daughter Kaity's 7th birthday the other day. After a lot of planning, sneaking around and bargain hunting I managed to pull off re-decorating her bedroom as a surprise! I'd been hiding everything in the garage under a tarp for about 2 months LOL!!!

2 days before her birthday we had her stay at her Avo and Grans (grandma and grandpa) and the fun began. Me, my daughter Emily and my husband Mike repainted her room and all her furniture the first night. Then the night before my girlfriend Marlene...the worlds most talented women... came over to play with me, um, I mean help me set everything up.

We had so much fun, I'm not sure if the room was for Kaity, or if it was for the little girl in me that always wanted a room like this LOL! Here's a few pics...let me know what you think.

 I managed to pull the whole room off for less than $300...that was including the gorgeous Louis IV chair...upholstered in hot pink pleather of course!

Now my oldest daughter wants her room re-done for her birthday in January...can't wait to see what we come up with and for how little we can pull it off for!


Bunk bed draped with white sheer fabric, complete with a french poodle pillow...hand made by the talented Marlene.
I had to include a black and white zebra rug!

What French fashion designers room would be complete without a dress maker dummy, some fabric remnants and a magnet board to tack all your ideas to? I just attached a wall paper remnant to an existing magnetic board. I think I've played in the room more than she has LOL!

Of course I had to have a fancy chandelier.... our old kitchen light. Simply repainted and gussied up with crystals, feathers and pink glass branches.


The pink and black cubes were a steal at $15 each...great to use as  memory boxes. So cute with the lids switched so each was pink and black

  3. Actually Susan, I started with the chair. I did see the wall applique at Home Sense too...but being as frugal as I am wasn't willing to pay that much for it LOL! I managed to find this one at Deals World for a paltry $5!
