One Room Challenge Week 2 – Girl’s Bedroom Design

It’s the second week of the One Room Challenge. I’m working on an updated girl’s bedroom design for my nine year old daughter. My goal is a slightly more grown up style infused with plenty of fun because I don’t want her growing up too fast! I’m also planning some new storage systems to help keep her room organized. You can check out all the before pictures in this post.

Ideas to update a girl's bedroom.

The existing furniture is working well for the most part. As far as the bed, dresser and desk go, we’re in good shape. She currently has two small Ikea shelving units that store books and toys. I’d like to exchange these for a larger unit for her books and incorporate toy storage into the closet system. I’m on the hunt for new bedding and window treatments. I’ve been on the lookout for wall decor too. The to-do list is long, but apart from the closet and painting the walls, it’s not too labor-intensive. read more

What Should I Read Next 

Anne Bogel is the author of the very popular blog Modern Mrs. Darcy and the voice behind this fabulous weekly podcast. Both are chock full of book recommendations, which I appreciate as an avid reader. So many of the great titles I pick up are books I heard about from Anne. Each week she interviews a fellow book lover, asking her guest to share three books they love, one book they hate and what they’re reading now. After some discussion, she then gives the guest three book recommendations. If you need an endless to-be-read list, then I highly suggest you tune in. read more
