My Room: Ruby

Fayetteville, AR

Sara didn't hold back her in adding as much feminine charm to Ruby's room as she wanted. She describes: After having three boys, I have had so much fun creating this girly space for our baby girl. I wanted the room to be girly with a vintage feel to it. I chose 'Dolphin Fin' by Behr as the wall color to be a nice, neutral backdrop. I also gave the old wood trim an update by painting it a crisp, semi-gloss white. The main colors in the room are varying shades of pink with pale aqua as an accent. The dresser was a second-hand store find that was in great condition but needed an update. I achieved that with a bunch of elbow grease and Valspar's 'Ocean Spray' satin paint and primer in one.

This room has no closet so I knew that I needed a wardrobe for all her girly clothes. I found the wardrobe at the Salvation Army and redid it with a bunch of coats of primer, white satin paint and hardware from Hobby Lobby.

One of my favorite parts of Ruby's room is her chandelier. I found it in all its brassy glory at the thrift store for less than five bucks. I spray painted it watermelon and added lots of gaudy bling to make it super girly. I also really love her curtains which are just a vintage chenile bed covering, cut in half.

Thanks Sara! Readers, see more of Ruby's room on It's Good to be Queen.
