I’m so excited to show you my daughters room makeover!

She’s 10 years old, she loves pink and green, and she wanted a….

…polka dot wall!

We were actually inspired by this photo.

I placed the polka dots in a random pattern and used vinyl dots so they could easily be removed! We used the Silhouette machine and premium white vinyl with a 5 inch circumference for each dot. So simple!

I’m in the process of making white ruffle curtains, thus the bare windows!

Let me show you the rest of the room….

I can’t believe how much the polka dots add to her room! We chose to do one wall and the rest a light green color so the polka dots didn’t overwhelm the space.

I also snagged a silver chandelier from IKEA and used this tutorial to spice it up.

This adds such a “girly” touch to her bedroom!

I have to show you this duvet I made using this fun tutorial.

I decided to use bright pink sheets instead of white for a pop of color! Oh, and see those li’l pillowcases? My daughter made those in her sewing class all by herself…she loves to sew and she’s great at it!

More polka dot love? I had to have these white polka dot sheers for her canopy bed {purchased at Walmart}.

She really wanted a corkboard so we used this frame I had in the basement. We painted it bright pink, glued some cork on the wooden insert, and she’s ready to pin away!

      They are actually two shades of green but since this photo was taken I painted it all one color of green and it looks much better. I’ll update the photo asap!! Thanks for your comment!
