This post sure has been a long time in the making! I started working on my youngest daughter's room well over a year ago. I finally finished it last fall, but I haven't had a chance to show the final room reveal yet. Today I'm sharing the reveal of my 10-year-old daughter's room. We think you will find some cute bedroom ideas for girls and for tween girls.
I can finally end my mommy guilt…well at least THIS mommy guilt. I finally got Pumpkin's room completed. It felt so great to get it done and know that she has a beautiful room to enjoy.
Along the way, I had fun making all kinds of things for her. I love that part. To me, it adds a gift to the room and the project to take the time to make personalized things that are just what she has envisioned for her room.
Today, let's have some fun looking at all the projects and the cute bedroom ideas we came up with.
When you enter Pumpkin's room you are greeted with the pretty wall color that Pumpkin selected and helped paint as well as the colorful duvet cover she selected. The pom pom box pleated bed skirt that was my final project finishes her bed off so nicely…and hides all the stuffed animals under her bed. Yay!
Pumpkin really wanted me to make her some cute wall art. She came up with the idea for me to make her the cute and glittery Sparkle, Glitter, Fun canvases. They ended up being really inexpensive and look so pretty on the wall, especially around sunset when the light hits all the glitter.
This is a recent addition to her room. Her latest thing that she enjoys A LOT are Beanie Boos. This area was an area for her American Girl dolls as you can see the bunk beds that I made for the dolls here. However, she recently bought the cute stair-stepped bookcase with pet sitting money and made it into a home for her Beanie Boos. It looks so cute!
We put the shelves up to deal with the problem of where to store her Lego sets. They have worked well and been used many different ways over the last year. The shelves have been repurposed from way back when – when I originally came up with a cute way to store the Build-A-Bear hanging clothes…then they were used for American Girl Doll clothes. Now we removed the bar and are just using them as shelving.
This is all Pumpkin's creativity in making a home with different rooms for her Beanie Boos.
Cuteness! A bowl she earned selling Girl Scout cookies is actually a Beanie Boo elevator.
She bought, with her own pet sitting money, the Sculpey clay (affiliate link) to make this sign for her Beanie Boo home.
At our house, it seems that whatever something was bought for is not what it will usually be used for. This cute little chalkboard was part of an adorable Our Generation Ice Cream Set. It is now the way the Beanie Boos get the latest news when they get home.
Ok, so back to her room, not the Beanie Boo house. Her dresser got a cute and super easy touch with the DIY dresser personalization. On her bed are all the cute pillows and few of her cute stuffed animals. You can see the adorable Dachshund decorative pillow I made her. She has always loved Dachshunds. Who knew that just a few short months later through our volunteering at a local no-kill shelter, we would find our miniature Dachshund, Daisy. You can see plenty of pictures of her on my Instagram account.
My daughter also loves horses and really wanted some pictures of horses in her room. We found the bottom horse picture at Target (affiliate link). The other two pictures were taken by me during our 2015 road trip when we visited Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Her dresser is often cluttered with of all kinds of things. While Pumpkin is my most willing child to get rid of things, she is not my super organized child. It may have taken us a week of working a little each day to get her room ready to photograph. At any rate, the little things she leaves on her dresser show some of her creativity. This is a dolphin she and I made together out of Perler beads (affiliate link).
I showed this on Instagram quite some time ago, but this is another thing on her dresser. She decided one day that she was going to give clay a try. This is the first thing she made. Hello, creativity! So cute! I think she is really proud of what she made.
There is a little corner in her room that we have filled with three furry, cozy pillows. It is a cozy reading spot. Just above that you can see the cute foiled wall print I made to immortalize the game we play with I love you more, I win.
The long wall in her room holds her dolls along with her stable and horses. She doesn't play with them nearly as much as she used to. Sigh. Kids they grow up way to fast for my liking. I wish we could make it slow down somehow.
At any rate, you can also get a good view of the curtains I bought at IKEA and painted to match the colors of her room. Also the pretty wall art I made to display the picture of she and her sister. That was probably one of the easiest projects in the room.
Jenga blocks create a patio for the Beanie Boo camper.
I mean….the cuteness factor with the camper and Beanie Boo is almost too much!
I think this is my favorite thing I did in her room. Her room contains this awkward corner that has been used so many ways.
I had envisioned this idea since we moved into this house 10 years ago.
I'm so glad I turned this corner into some great storage and desk space. The desk is such a pretty pink and the paint I used for it has held up really well, which is great because the paint I used for the desk in my older daughter's room has not worked out nearly as well. You can see tons more pictures of both of those things in those posts.
Of course, Pumpkin added some of her own touches to her cute corner. They are perfect!
The closet! If you remember the troubles I had with the doors for the closet, I am super proud to say that it has two doors that both close. at. the. same. time.
The organization has remained somewhat similar over the last year. Yay!
We did add some cute decals I had bought at Target well before we even started her room.
Originally, when we first started talking about her room, she had thought of going with a more peachy pink and horse theme. Boy did that totally change. So, the decals no longer matched, but the look really cute on the inside of the closet.
I totally didn't get a picture of the wall that has her kids art wall. She still uses it, though she doesn't seem to change it out as often anymore.
Whew! I'm so happy to have her room done! We both love the way it turned out despite how long it took me to get done.
Now, I'm left with deciding which of my laundry list of other rooms and projects I want to start on…or maybe finish…since I'm always midway through at least 5 projects and ideas at the same time. 🙂
