After living here for almost 8 months I think it’s safe to say that this whimsical bedroom belonging to my daughter Lili is almost done! We’re still missing better clothes organisation in her closet and her desk is always a mess waiting for better ways to organize her school work ( hence, you won’t see it in the photos.. sorry!) but at least her sleeping/playing & reading areas are all done and ready to share!
A while ago I shared in here how I made her this reading nook– with the canopy , floor pillow and my little DIY library on wheels! Well I’m happy to report that this little corner is getting plenty of use these days! Especially since we subscribed ourselves to our local library and every week now we come home with a bag full of books. Now all the library books stay in her cart on wheels next to her reading nook and nothing ever gets lost!
Also I added more cute decals above her bed too- we got them from Poppylu – and my Lili is obsessed with them! Probably because purple is still her favourite colour- though also because they’re a perfect touch of whimsy for this fairy loving girl of mine!
As for her bed, it’s made with the Beddy’s bedding set- a lifesaver when it comes to keeping kids beds in place and all made- and a XO pillow I made per my daughter’s request with my Cricut.
And while my daughter is not a preeteen just yet it’s interesting to see how books and friends are taking place of dolls and toys.. Time passes so fast mamas, it’s all true what they say, they really grow too fast! I have a feeling that in a year or two we’ll be revamping this room for a pree teen that will inevitably live here soon- but for now, whimsy and cute it is, and I’m not mad about it one bit !
