My Redecorated Room by Shelley

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Hi!  My name is Shelley, and I am writing this post about my room.  I wanted a bedroom re-do because my room had become too childish for me, I outgrew my bed, and I wanted to remove some things I no longer used. You can read about my old room here.  My mom said that it was the most viewed post ever on her blog!



I got my bedding from Target.  It is from the Simply Shabby Chic line.  I chose it because I like the pink flowers.


My dad made my headboard from salvaged wood he bought at Southern Accents.


I wanted to add some purple to my room.  I bought these frames from Southern Accents in Cullman, AL.  These are photos of my friends and me at the lake.


Miss Jane sent my mom this adorable Flora Doora.  It matches my bedding! We hung it from a Pier 1 hook directly onto my headboard.


Here are some of the girly pillows I really like.  The purple is my favorite.  It is silk, and Angele Parlange designed it, and I was named after her!  My middle name is Angele.


My favorite thing in my room is the vanity!! I am so girly and I LOVVVE makeup, and I needed my own space to apply makeup! I used to use it as a desk but decided not to anymore because we have a study where I can now do my homework! Anyway, I got the white vanity box from PBTeen, and I use the desk drawer as storage for the rest of the makeup that I don't use as often! As much makeup as I have, I was surprised how everything I needed fit in this! (:


This is what the vanity box looks like closed.  The white Hello Kitty contains several make-up brushes.


I really enjoy having this French memo board in my room.  I display stuff I like on it!


My dresser has some favorite books, salvaged wood and wallpaper picture frames, a Hello Kitty CD player, jewelry tower, and other stuff I really like.


I pick out my clothes everyday and put it on my PBTeen dress form.  The second favorite thing about my room is the hook from Pier1 for my purse.


I got this vanity set for my birthday.


The walls are painted Airway by Benjamin Moore.  The hanging light is by MacKenzie-Childs in the Honeymoon pattern.  My mom does not like the Honeymoon line!

I love this room, and I want to keep it like this for a long time.  It is girly, and so *me*.  I hope y'all enjoyed this post, and I hope y'all think my room is pretty!


Thank-you, Shelley, for writing this post about your new room.  You did not say that the blue is the same blue as your school colors {Go Jags}  :D

  4. Oh Shelley, your room is so girly & so pretty! I love the color of your walls and your Shabby Chic bedding. I'm really crazy for your headboard! Your dad did such a wonderful job on it. I would love a headboard like that for myself! My daughter who is 14 years old has looked at this post and she, too, loves your room!

  5. What an awesome room! I love that it not only suits your age and style but it is really chic! I love the headboard, very cool!

  6. Okay I can see you have really good taste, I have the same bedding, lol :)
    Love how shabby chic it all is, so comfy and pretty.
    That is amazing how much that little vanity box holds, pretty cool

    I have enjoyed your tour. I am sure you will enjoy that room for a long time.


  7. Shelley, Your room makeover is simply beautiful! I love the colors you have chosen! I was so flattered to see you included one of my Flora Dooras in your new room! I never thought of hanging one on a headboard with a hook! She looks perfect there!
    It makes me so happy that you are enjoying her, and she is a part of your new space! Jane Flora Doora

  8. Shelley, your room is very beautiful. It is easy to see that you are a very talented decorator. J

  9. I just love your room, Shelley! It fits you so well. Wasn't it fun to pick everything out?! Your bedspread is so pretty, I love the Rachel Ashwell line at Target very much and your headboard is beautiful and unique! Love your vanity, too! Great job! :)


  10. Hi Shelly, You did a beautiful job on your new bedroom. What a great headboard and I love the pretty bedding you choose. I think the Flora-Dora looks so sweet hanging from the headboard. Your hutch looks so pretty with the framed pics and I love your Hello Kitty bag. How did you ever talk your mom into giving you the MC light fixture? It looks fab in your room! I think you will enjoy all the choices you made for your room all during your HS days.
    Beautiful, beautiful…….

  11. It looks perfect. Grown-up, but still youthful. (The old room was pretty cute, too.) The Shabby Chic bedding is great. My daughter uses it too in her apartment. Great job!

  12. Fabulous shabby chic through and through, love the dresser! Well done Shelley you have done a great job on your room.

  13. You did a beautiful job of decorating your room, Shelley! I love all the special & feminine touches you've added. It's also wonderful that your Dad made your headboard. Good luck in high school!

  21. What a pretty room make over, Shelley! It's such a nice bedroom with an awesome range of soft colours :) Love the pillows on the bed! Greetings from Australia♥

  22. Dear Shelley...I remember when I was just a little younger than you and I redecorated my room with my mom. We painted, sewed and fixed it all up. You will always remember this as a special project you worked on with your mom. It turned out fabulous too!

  23. Hi Shelley, I love your room! The headboard is my most favorite, but it is all just darling. The desk turned vanity is so cute and I love the hanging light. I am not sure how old you are, but this is a room that will grow with you. So, so cute!
    p.s. My room was girly and lavender when I was growing up. I remember loving it so much!

  24. shelly, you did a marvelous job on this bedroom. It is very sweet, romantic and grown up. Simply beautiful. ;) Mica @ the Child's Paper

  25. What a great post Shelley. I love your new bedroom. I'm someone who loves blue as well, so I am totally with you on loving the colour of the walls. There are so many cute things in your room, but I think my favourites are the headboard (what a sweet Dad to make it for you and I love the white weathered boards), the hook to hold your purse, and the vanity box that closes up (very clever). I hope you make many good memories in your new room over the next few years in high school.

  26. what a cool headboard! and the colors are just perfect!

  27. Thanks for sharing the details about your room, Shelly. Looks like a fun place to hang out.

  28. Wow Shelley you have such great taste and style. It looks straight out of a magazine. I love that your dad did the headboard. That is something to keep forever.

  29. Shelley,
    What a lovely room. I have always thought the color blue makes a room charming. I love the Pier 1 hook for your purses. Pier 1 is my favorite store ever. The little chair in the corner is sweet. Your white hutch reminds me of the one my girls had when they were young. I love it! So sorry that I gave it away. I see that you like the color purple too. Thanks for giving us a peek into your special space.

  30. Hi Shelley! Thank you for sharing your room. I love the combination of blue walls and white ceiling. Your room provides a relaxing and calming atmosphere. I love it. Even the pieces are something to love. I remember on of your photos, the one with your friends. Your mom posted it months ago and it reminded me of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. You are blessed to have good friends and of course, a great mom.

    Have a great week!
