Silhouette, Fairies, and More Pink in a Little Girl’s Room

Silhouette, fairies and more pink in a little girl’s room was on the agenda this week.

Today, I shall tease you with some little updates.

A little girl’s room that has taken a while to do, as we have been working on it a little at a time.

When we placed, or should I say squeezed, the bedroom furniture in the room

which was my craft room, and now it’s “our” craft space,

she stated she would like to see more pink in the room. So her wish is my command.

You will see fairies fluttering about the room.

On mirrors and stems of flower plates.

A silhouette that was created at Disney World several years ago

hangs on the door of the craft cabinet.

The striations on the walls is the reflection of the shade of the chandelier in the room.

And of course there needs to be a bit of vintage in the room.

So we added this cute vintage cranberry glass basket that sits on the dresser.

And fabrics and trim with touches of pink.

Bulletin board of gray and white had to be transformed to pink of course!

Annie Sloan Scandinavian Pink to be exact!

During this entire process of decorating this room, I tried very hard to use what I

already had . . from the bedding to the lamps to the wall art.

When I needed something to place her own craft supplies in, I looked in the attic

to see what I could find. And I came across a Longaberger basket from 1996 that

had the perfect shade of pink on it! Serendipity I say!

The  accent color on the basket could not be more perfect!…A special basket

as it was the 1996 Mother’s Day Basket.

So I leave you today with one of the first things that was done when she actually starting using her room.

I had a pair of quilted hearts that I have had forever.

They were hanging on the door knob . . . however, they found their way to the front of the door.

A dual purpose of beauty of function.

She turned over one of the hearts to the back side to write her message

of when she needs “privacy” and that means to knock before entering.

Does this mean she is growing up? Yep, I think so!

Cue the box of tissues!

Have a great day enjoying each moment of the day and making memories!

  14. Shirley, you’ve given Gray a room of her dreams. It is just so adorable and it means so much to her because you let her participate in every aspect! She’s a lucky girl to have a Grama like you. I love fairies, too. Yes, privacy is the first big sign of growing up…oh, how time flies!

  15. Oh Shirley the room is even sweeter with the touches of pink. When I saw the room with my visit out by you I loved it and now with the new touches it is even prettier. I bed Graylyn loves her room when she stays. You are the best Grandmother ever!!!!! Hugs and have a great day.

  17. Such a pretty tease…Can’t wait to see the rest of room. Yes, I would say she is growing up(Privacy?). She has the best Grandma, such great memories you are making for Grey.

  18. This little girl doesn’t to be so little anymore. When they start knowing about the respect of a bit of private time they are growing. She will cherish all the memories you have made with her. It’s a win, win situation for both sides

    I have been anticipating the reveal! Absolutely adorable! I love every detail! I had that ME print, but just couldn’t find the right place, so donated that and a few others to my favorite Florida charity . They had been a great deal at Tuesday Morning in NY 10 years ago. I moved them down to Florida, but finally decided someone should be enjoying them! Your blog is one of my favorites!

  20. I love Graylyn’s touches of pink, which every girl needs. She is so lucky to have a grandmother nearby with whom she is creating long, lasting memories! If only mine were closer! Enjoy every minute with her, Shirley, as they grow up so fast!

  21. What a cute room. Love the bird cage and the curtains. She’s a lucky little lady!

  24. Your little sweeties room is so perfect for your darling granddaughter. Yes, they do grow up so quickly. Baby one day and then they are teenagers the next. So enjoy every minute you can with her as soon they can’t be bothered. They are off with their friends going here and there. Each time I see Kelly I notice that right away.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  25. Such a cute room Shirley! I’m sure your granddaughter loves it! I loved decorating my daughter’s room pink when she was young, unfortunately it only lasted a little while, until she wanted blue.
