Once we moved into our home, I couldn’t wait to start working on the beautiful little girl's room that I had dreamed about in my head. I wanted a beautiful, soft pink little girl's room with elegant accents. I wanted it to be really girly but still beautiful!
I wanted to incorporate elaborate detailed frames as the focal point above the crib and as I was looking I found them to be pretty spendy. I found these adorable wooden laser cut frames at Michaels and knew they would be perfect. I love the simplicity of them but also how they really add to the space!
I love Lucille Ball. Since my little Lucy is named after her I really wanted to incorporate her into the room. I have this beautiful photo of Lucille Ball that I framed and I think it adds such a special touch to the room. Also isn’t this chandelier amazingly cute? I purchased it at Hobby Lobby and love how it gives the room an even more elegant and girly feel.
Something I also have always wanted to do was frame pictures of myself, Lucy and my husband as newborns. I love looking at it and comparing who Lucy looks more alike and now Lucy can tell who is who in the photos.
One small thing I love to do to update a piece of furniture is to change the knobs. I replaced the normal white knobs of the changing table with glass rose shaped knobs from Hobby Lobby. I love my changing table as it has storage and compartments for baskets. The changing table I purchased at Amazon and the baskets I got at Home Goods!
Probably my favorite thing in Lucy’s room is her wall color. I believe it to be the most beautiful pink paint ever made! I know that’s a large statement but I think it’s so true. It is the most beautiful pale pink color and really creates that soft, beautiful, elegant and girly bedroom. The color is White Dogwood from Sherwin Williams. Something else I added to the paint was Valspar’s Signature Paint Crystals. I was extremely hesitant to use them because I didn’t want it to make the room look tacky. I’m SOOO glad I did it though because it adds just a touch of sparkle and what little girl wouldn’t want sparkly walls?! I only added one packet to a gallon of paint. If you want more sparkle you can add two packets. For me, one packet was perfect. You don’t really notice the sparkles unless they catch some light from outside or from the ceiling light. It’s so beautiful and I love it!
