Cutie-Patootie Girls Bedroom: Soft Pink and Gold

Posted on November 21, 2016 by KylieMawdsley

My Little Girls Bedroom – Fun and Functional with Ikea!

Partner Post to Cassie’s Bedroom

I would like to introduce you all to Maggie, my 7 year old daughter.  You think I’M spunky?  Wait until you meet this little spark-plug!


And yes, those are 3D glasses without the lenses.  She put them on about 2 1/2 years ago and hasn’t put them down since (she can’t see a wink without them!)

So, like mother like daughter, Maggie wanted a new paint colour in her bedroom and where there’s paint…there’s bedding, drapes, accessories, wine…it never ends, and I couldn’t WAIT to get started!

Maggie’s Bedroom Before

Here’s her room when we bought the house (old owners décor). It was cute, but not really ‘Maggie’.


Maggie’s Bedroom After

Maggie really wanted a pink room (oh the horror!) so we (okay me) chose Benjamin Moore Pink Bliss for the walls, which is just a wee whisper of pink with a super subtle coral undertone to stop it from looking like Pepto Bismol.  I did this because I knew we could have some fun with pink bedding and accessories which would more than make up for the ‘not-so-pink’ walls.

We have quite a few of these Ikea Raskog Carts kickin’ around the house.  1 in each girls room, 1 in the homework closet (photos tba) and 1 in my office.  It is just the PERFECT versatile piece for any room.

I also made a fabric corkboard for her by wrapping a corkboard with fabric, stapling it to the back of the frame and using tacks to define the framed edge.  It’s a great spot for all of the artwork, photos and school papers that otherwise barf all over my kitchen countertop (so eloquent, I know).

I was DESPERATE to use these gold vinyl dots – they were super easy to apply and will be easy to take off (as you all know her room will look different in 6 months – tops).

I love how the gold added some bling to her room and coordinated with her gold heart toss cushion and ‘LOVE’ canvas.

The chandelier was a 2nd hand find which was spray painted a glossy white.

I’m pretty sure that the Ikea Kallax unit is the best thing that’s ever happened to me (except for wine…oh and Tim too).  It holds her books, toys and storage containers.

I also bought the drawer inserts for her crayons and colouring books.  The desktop has already been used for everything from crafts and colouring to puzzles and playtime!

(It came with 2 desk tops, but we only used 1)

And NO room is complete with out some heartfelt touches.  In between her wee little baby shoes, jewelry box and a pic of Big Grandpa, her bedroom has heart and soul.
