Creating with the Stars – Girls Bedroom Reveal!

 

Girls Bedroom Reveal at www.u-createcrafts.com #diy

 
Hello U-Create readers!  I am Nancy from owen's olivia.  Awhile back, I entered the contest Competing with the Stars hosted by East Coast Creative, and I was teamed up with Kari.  I had the opportunity to get to know her a little better during the contest, and I am so glad they paired us up together.   She has been such a pleasure to get to know. 
 
owen's olivia is a small blog about my love for sewing and home DIYs.  I love to sew, quilt, use power tools, and do anything creative.   Sometimes, I joke that I am Martha Stewart's daughter.  I am trying to make my home more beautiful a little at a time, which can be a slow process.  I have a 3 year old son, Owen, who keeps me on my toes, and I stay home with him while my husband attends North Carolina State University for Electrical Engineering.
 

I had the opportunity to head out of town for a few days to make over a bedroom for a couple who is adopting three siblings, one of whom is Kk.  This couple has been trying for over 10 years to have children of their own.  Kk is the youngest out of the three.  I made over one of the couple's guest bedrooms into a space for Kk as part of my entry for Creating with the Stars.  I did not let my elimination in Round 3 stop me from finishing Round 4's theme Home Decor, and I am so glad I continued on!  The space is so bright and airy.  There are not too many personal touches in the space due to time constraints, as I am one who likes to sew and create things with my hands.  But on the bright side, this also allows Kk to add her own personality to the space when she comes to her new home.    I finished this space in 5 days (1 day to gather supplies), which I have discovered to be too short of time for a makeover.  :)  Yes, I am the turtle when it comes to home decor races….

Thank you Kari for sharing my space with your readers!   I hope they love it as much as I do! xo

  18. thank you everyone! the room is so much brighter after being painted in my favorite white, benjamin moore's decorators white. the windows face southwest, so a lot of light floods in. it's pure awesome! other people were asking about the wood wall, so i'll put together a little tutorial once the holiday passes.

    thank you Kari for featuring this room!
