Laurie's New Room

A few months ago Laurie (just turned 4 in January) started setting up camp in our guest room and declaring it her new room. So we figured it was as good a time as any to put the boys together and give the girl her own space. Previously, she's been sharing a room with Stephen (5 y.o.).

Tis not a season for big spending over here so I knew we'd be making do with what we already had to make her room feminine and 4 year old girly. Thank goodness I had a good excuse to not buy Hello Kitty sheets!

I used a full, white sheet and just tucked it in tight to avoid buying a fitted twin sheet. I had a twin flat. Then I sewed this floral pillowcase from a vintage sheet I bought on Etsy a while ago.

The artwork was in her old, shared room and I just walked it on over to the new room.

The dresser is a pale pink. My dad helped me paint it a few years ago. It looks much better with the lighting in her new room. The lamp is the only lamp I have that didn't already have a home. I think it's nicely inconspicuous and reminds me of a lamp I had in my room growing up.

Laurie's new room also serves as the unofficial playroom. I try to let it not get too junky because I truly believe my children play better with fewer toys in a tidy space. But let's face it. This is so hard. But I try.

I bought this vintage Little Tikes kitchen off eBay a year or so ago. George loves it the most. My sister and I had the same one growing up. My mom still has it. Anyways, I just think it's adorable and George does too.

Budget $0
Speding $0

I'm really happy with it.


  1. Hooray for NO "LIttle Kitty" sheets. Love the room and what you've done with it.

  2. i love it and i bet she does too!

  3. love it! We did a kid room switch and bought nothing either. It's not "perfect" but it fit our budget :)

  4. Super cute! I had one of those kitchens when I was little, too! And that pillowcase is absolutely to die for.

    Thanks for sharing!
