New Bedroom

Surprise!
My 9 year old goddaughter came home to a new room this week. 

The goals for her redo were:
~give her a space to create
~organize her books and special items
~give everything a "place"
~update her look

A fresh coat of paint and several shopping trips later, ta-da!

 Pretty much everything came from Ikea.  Whether you're a fan or not, they really do have an amazing variety of items for a great price.  
Emma Kate chose the bedding and the turquoise accent colour and from there I made a list of items I thought we could use in the room.  
Along the way Darla and I decided to add orange into the mix as well.

Let's look at some details.

These bins are a great way to keep art supplies tidy and your work space clear.  
Ikea has several cute sets of prints and of course, loads of frames.  
We chose a coloured chair to keep the space fun.




The shelf has lots of space for organizing books and art supplies and treasures.
You know I love this little kitchen cart!  It makes a perfect bedside table.




This little stool was a last minute addition but it's one of my favourite parts of the room.



The tray keeps the colour theme consistent.  
Plants at Ikea are a great buy and the pots were .99!  How can you go wrong?



Of course no room is complete without a closet purge and organize.
