Big Girl Room

Little Miss Emily got her own room! Yay, we are all excited for this big change. Before this, my two older kidos shared a room, but the time came to split them up. My son would keep my daughter awake talking and asking question after question late into the night, he is at that curious age :). 
With Emily starting school in a few days, I figured that a good nights sleep was important, so her own room was a must. 

You can see their old shared room here.  

Now we have a girls room and a boys room

This room was the playroom before, you can see it here. First thing I did was give it a nice fresh coat of paint. I used my favorite gray color Sterling by Behr. I have it in about 75% of my house and I am planning to paint the rest of it with the same color soon. 

I have been wanting to create a gallery wall somewhere in my house for a while now, and it was really fun to create this one here. I started to gather inexpensive pictures and frames here and there for a few weeks and am pretty happy how it turned out. 

See how I painted the dresser here
Duvet is from Pottery Barn Teen
Bed is from IKEA
Pouf is from Land of Nod
Rug is from Rugs USA
Blackout Drapes are from Pottery Barn Teen
