Lillie and Lola's New Room (Not Quite Finished But Getting There!)


Although I still have a few more projects I'd like to do in here, Lillie and Lola's room is almost finished! The two main projects I have left to do in here are upholstering their headboards to they look a little less shabby chic and I may possibly monogram them. And then making little benches for the ends of their beds. I also would like to add a little interest to their drapery panels. Other than that though I am pretty much done. It sure feels nice to have one space feel pretty completely. We are making quite a bit of progress on the downstairs but this is the only room we have touched so far upstairs.

Here are some "before" shots next to how it currently looks:


 

The girls really wanted a bright pink room. I didn't really want to paint the walls bright pink so I thought doing a wallpaper with bright pink flowers and lots of bright pink accents throughout the room would still make the room feel very bright and very pink but still be something that I would like too. I have to say I love it now as much as they do!


We sell both these prints in our shop and the beautiful shoes are from our newest sponsor, Joyfolie!



Dana gave this little piggy bank to Lillie a few years ago - maybe for her first birthday?

Lillie has an owl and Lola has a pig that they sleep with every night from their best friend's Chloe and Bayley.

On this wall we just tacked up two pieces of string and Lillie has been regularly changing out the artwork.

The chandelier was a gift from my mom and dad when I was pregnant with Lillie and doing her nursery so it made the move with us.

We spray painted this old birdcage that I got seven years ago at an antique shop and also fixed it up a little (it had been pretty neglected the last few years out on our back porch). I didn't do the best job protecting the floor in the garage so now it is dusted in a nice coat of bright pink. The girls think it's pretty but let me just say it is not! Then I used some leftover wallpaper to very quickly make this "racing flag" as Lillie calls it.

  4. Lovely room for your girls. I think you achieved the pinky girly look without painting the walks. Love it!
    The wallpaper is lovely.

  5. Absolutely adorable Jenni! I bet they are both over the moon about it. I love that you are having them share a room. You don't see that often anymore and I think it is so "sisterly" and will give them a lifetime of memories.
    Kisses to the girls!

  21. Love the pops of pink! It's amazing how the rug just opens up the entire room. How sweet the girls will be sharing a room now. Looking forward to heading to Williamsburg for parents' weekend soon. Maybe we'll spot you at the football game. :)

    2. Hi..I am from Holland and they sell very nice wallpaper by Pip..but almost everyone uses just one wall to decorate as an "accent wall"because it´s to bright when you use it on ervery wall ;-)
      Very, very lovely room!!

    1. Thank you , Stephanie. The side of the door in the room is painted the same simply white as the trim and the part facing the hall is Wrought Iron for now. I tried that because I liked it at Jason's but am leaning towards a different truer shade of black for our house.

  34. It's a beautiful room Jennifer! The wallpaper is gorgeous....very feminine and the rug is fun! I bet the girls are so happy with their pink room. Growing up I shared a room with my sister. We would stay up talking after the lights were out, lots of giggling and telling stories. Those were fun times that bring back lots of memories. I love Lillie and Lola's chandelier and also how you painted the frames. Such a pretty room!

  43. Beautiful! You may aleady know this, but the "vintage desk" is actually a vanity table. The arms are for the vanity skirt. I had one in my bedroom growing up (in the 60s). A skirt on the table would be so pretty in that lovely room.

    1. Thanks! Someone mentioned that a while back. They use it as a desk and actually play school and office with it all the time but you are right it was indeed once a vanity.
