Shabby Chic Bedroom Decorating

While decorating my girls room, I came up with a thrifty tip for a headboard and it fits right in with my shabby chic theme! I spent a total of $14.00 for the fence which was already pre-made at the local lumber store.

That is just darling! But not as much as the sweet little gal sitting on the bed! :-)

I love the whole room, from the green paint, to the neat quilt, to the picket fence, to the cutie on the bed. I like the use of the narrow space by putting in the shelves. I'm about to decorate two little girl rooms and love seeing new ideas and how other people have decorated.

What a sweet bedroom for a precious little girl! What I like about it is that it is a choice that will "grow" with her as her tastes change.Wish I had the money I've spent on Star Wars--then to Superman--then to Sports--so on and so on.You're a great decorater!

Just wondering if your daughter shares her bedroom with a younger sibling? Noticed a babybed in the foreground of the picture. My daughter has a 22 month old son & 3 month old daughter. Now that the baby is getting too big for the bassinet in their bedroom, they need to decide if they will move the oldest upstairs into a youth bed or put both of them in the same room downstairs close to their room. What would you suggest IF you have the same situation. If not, just disregard my question! :)

I didn't tell you in my former post how much I love your little girl's room. She looks like a proud little princess! You did a great job.

My 3 year old daughter does share this room with her 1 year old sister. It seems to work out great. The baby just loves this bright green color.

I have also placed 2 large flowers above the crib for her to look at...please see that photo. Thank you for the wonderful comments!

Great job! My sister-in-law did something similar with the picket fence for my niece. She put butterflies and flowers on stems growing up from the floor.

Hi, I love the room! Where did you buy your fencing? I went to Home Depot and had to buy the regular Fencing, which is way too thick, I think.
Great room :)
Thanks!

I purchased the fencing at Menards. It was in the department where you would find lawn edging.

I adore the shelves you added to the room. They really make a lot of use out of the space.

I know it is hard to make use of space in old homes with the weird angles

Love the room! Fence is so clever. Target has a line of Simply Shabby Chic sheets and accessories that would match your color scheme.....I'm helping redo my neice's room as she moves from crib to "big girl" bed. We love this color scheme. (green and pink)

Thank you!! I found the fence at Menards (not sure if you have that store where your at)...but it was only like $6.00/fence piece. It was in the isle with the garden decorating stuff....

I picked up a paint at Menards also...can't recall the brand, sorry. If you have a pillow or something to match to, most home stores offer color matching, works great!

I was hoping to find out where you got the paint. My daughter and I have gone and gotten two paints now... and painted part of a wall only to find out the paints aren't the color she wants (matching her bedspread). One was too loud (neon) the other was too yellow (little green in it);(.

Help!!

which I purchased at Menards. The color on our walls is a tade bit brighter...

Hope this helps...I know its hard to match up paint, its never the same once its on the wall...good luck! -Julie

I'm not quite sure how you consider this to be shabby chic? It looks more like a cutsy little girls room

This is adorable! Makes we wish my girls were little ones again. I like the idea of little bugs for a boys room! You are very creative.

In a similar vein, I made a headboard from plastic lattice, painted green "stems" on it and hotglued silk flowers along the stems. I did the flowers in each girl's chosen colors.
