The BGR re-vamp

A couple of days ago I mentioned, on Facebook, that Miss T has been complaining about her room a lot lately. Not enough space to lay out all her things, but most importantly, not 'fancy' enough. 

{BGR original}

You see, we're in the throws of the "Fancy Nancy" phase. {If you aren't familiar with this series, it's fun, so check it out here.} Essentially, everything must be fancy. We are talking jewels at all times. This girl has always loved her accessories, but lately, we are taking it to a whole new level. 


Of course, I want her to be happy in her room and not feel stifled and confined by my sense of design. But at the same time, I'm not interested in starting from scratch. She only moved into her BGR a short while ago. 


So, with a little creative problem solving, we came up with a new layout for her room. No, it's not ideal or picture perfect, but it works and it makes her very happy...lots of room for her babies to lay out in a row, lay whole outfits across the floor, line up patients for check-ups...you know the drill. There's always so much to do :)





















By removing the headboard from one of her beds, we were able to nestle the bed between the wall and the radiator. Essentially, creating a day bed and freeing up a LOT of floor space. Double win. 


The piece de resistance came when I found this {awful} butterfly canopy at Bed Bath and Beyond for the bargain basement price of $10. (Had been $29.99 less 50% for slight damage, plus a $5 off coupon). Having a fancy tent was seriously high on Miss. T's wish list. Needless to say, I scored big points with this one. 


Otherwise, it was just a matter of moving the other pieces around and reworking her wall decor. I'd like to pick up a couple more butterflies {fortunately, they are on sale} and perhaps some additional throw pillows for the daybed. Maybe a duvet cover, I'm not sure. But these things can all come with time. And for now, the complaints have stopped and she's excited to be in her room again, which makes quiet time much better for both of us. Ah, crisis averted. 

Hope you had a great weekend - and averted some of your own crisis, big or small.
