We don't watch a lot of tv during the day, but in the rare occasion that we have it on in the background we usually have HGTV on & Chen Chen loves the show Love It or List It. Yesterday the home makeover bug got to us and we decided we would give her room a mini Frozen makeover. I agreed to Frozen if it could be subtle and not cartoon-y. I thought it would be harder for me to take the plunge to change things up since working on her room while we were waiting for her to come home was one of the things that kept me sane but we didn't change things up too much so I can still see the room we put together for her 4 years ago.
We started yesterday coming up with a plan, this picture cracks me up....future interior designer in the making!
We brainstormed on how to do this on a budget. We re-used some frames, kept some of the artwork, & used leftover birthday decorations and dress-up clothes. We went bargain hunting for new curtains, bedspread and rug and were able to find everything on sale or clearance. There were 2 beds in the room, the built in and a bed we bought at Ikea just days before she came home. We decided to move the Ikea one out, it went into her playroom to use like a daybed which gave us room to move the chair back in from the basement so she has a place to sit besides her bed.
Reused the La La Love you print, whipped up the Let It Go to fit in the large frame and printed off a couple of mini versions of Frozen posters I found on-line. Pom Pom yarn is my best friend :)
Paper fan left over from her birthday, I took the glass out of a thrift store frame and hot glued the fan to the frame. Added some Frozen fabric to an embroidery hoop and recycled the Elsa print from her birthday as well.
Dress up clothes used as room decor.
It's nothing fancy or Pinterest worthy, but we had fun putting it together and she enjoyed getting to put her touches on it. Once the Frozen fascination fades it will be easy to switch to something else too!
