Hi guys! Here we go 🙂
*please know that absolutely nothing on this post was sponsored. I owned most of the stuff, and purchased everything myself 💁🏻♀️
As you know, the theme of my kids bedroom is “Women Empowerment, Kindness & Inclusion”
This theme was born in my heart and developed in my mind after reading the book “Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History”. I wanted my kids to be surrounded by strong, smart, courageous, kind and awesome women. I want them to understand their potential to make a difference in the world, to include and hold hands with women and people who are/look different than them, and to be kind. This is the kind of human that I expect to populate this messed up Earth with. I did not carry them for almost 10 months each, destroyed my back and lost sleep for years, for them to be nasty, exclusive, judgmental jerks. THEY. WILL. BE. KIND.
So I dug into my brain and started putting things together. I made lists, vision boards, did a lot of research and selected the colors.
They are happy girls, so I chose happy colors! I found the perfect color combination in this picture:
I was so blown away by the out of the box combination of green, yellow, coral and pink! IT’S PERFECT! So off I went to Home Depot to get lumber for the shelves, brackets, paint and supplies.
I bought a craft board at Home Depot, cut it in half, sanded it down, stained it dark walnut, and installed them into the studs. I painted an arch on the wall using a pencil and thread- there are several tutorials on Pinterest- and bought mirrors and the stools.

I’ve had these animal heads from Target forever, but they still have them!

The Dress Up Rack
Same $12 craft board from Home Depot, sanded it down & stained it. I also I got the rod & brackets at Home Depot.
The illustration was made by Brooke Costello, and you can find her on Instagram: @artdesignbybrooke she is so sweet and talented!
We’ve had these IKEA beds for 3 or 4 years. They are originally white, but I spray painted them Spring Green. It. Was. A. Pain. In. The. Neck. I do not recommend doing it. My hands and arms were sore for a whole week and the smell was awful!! But here’s the link to the bed, it grows with your child, which is so nice 🙂 https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/minnen-ext-bed-frame-with-slatted-bed-base-white-s59124621/
I’ve been obsessed with arches and shapes painted on walls, so I had a wonderful time making this sun as well. It was so easy and looks so happy!
I bought the cloud shelf when I was putting together Archie’s nursery, but it didn’t go with his room after all, so I thought it was perfect to put it on the girls wall, and it really does look like clouds!

****All of the picture frames I bought at Hobby Lobby when they were having a 50% off sale!

The Strong Women Wall
Ahhhh this wall.. 😍😍
This wall was a JOY to make. Every single detail.
I installed the lattice (those wood trims). There’s something about using a nail gun that just makes your feel so powerful 💃🏻!
I didn’t want to spend my entire bank account on wallpaper, so I decided to add lattice, and only wallpaper the top.
Wallpaper was so easy to install, took me literally less than 20 minutes, because I’ve done this twice before. Make sure you use a credit card to smooth it out and get rid of bubbles. The Etsy link doesn’t work here, but the name of the shop is KidsWallpaperDesign.
