Scarlet is almost seven years old! Gah! You guise!! How did that happen? Remember when she used to look like this? I can’t believe I was making that crib-size duvet five whole years ago. I am trying to even, but I can’t. Well, anyhoooo, along with being seven comes certain airs of grown-up-edness that she felt needed to be addressed in her room. Like, for example, she wanted a desk upon which to do her homework (or endless hours of beados), and a cozy place to read and play her guitar.
I was happy to oblige because I love a good redecorating project. I did, however, want to find pieces that suited her personality now, but would also grow with her into her teen years. As much as I would enjoy re-decorating her room bi-annually, no one can afford that. So I refinished a vintage (read: cheap/dumpster worthy) desk (wait until you see the before pics), and snagged some investment pieces, then she and I decorated all the its and bits together.
I hope you find some inspiration here!
Come, take a tour with me to see what we did and find out my sources for all of this amazing stuff… (more…)
