I’ve been wanting to share Madeleine’s bedroom makeover with you for ages but unfortunately I smashed my phone screen so I’ve not been able to take any clear photos. Santa, if you’re reading this, a snazzy camera is top of my wish list please! In the meantime, I commandeered The Other Half’s phone and took a few pictures over the weekend.
My girl loves animals and the outdoors so we thought an enchanted forest bedroom would be ideal and something that would grow with her over the years. The walls were a little too green for our taste so we removed the glow-in-the-dark stars & painted them in Homebase’s Meadow emulsion. In fact, the only room in the house that the previous tenants hadn’t decorated green was the kitchen. Ironically, I plan on painting it green!
The Butterfly Forest bedding from¬†Next went perfectly with the colour scheme but I couldn’t find any curtains that¬†I liked¬†so I ended up buying an extra set and making the duvet cover into curtains.

 

If you saw the mood board I made¬†for this room¬†you’ll know I featured a birdcage lightshade that I had seen on Etsy. It was ¬£95 though and I figured I could make one for a fraction of the price, so I did! It was really simple and I think I actually prefer mine to the original!

The dresser was a bargain find from a charity shop & I couldn’t resist the ceramic bunny lamp from Next. I’m not a huge fan of the little arm chair, I have to say, but the in-laws¬†bought it for her (another charity shop find) and it does fit in better than her old one. I had¬†upcycled¬†a chair¬†we’d saved from the skip¬†and was a little bit in love with results¬†but it will do nicely for baby number two when we decorate his room. I may sob a little when I’m unpicking the upholstery, though!

 

How beautiful is that fox print*¬†by Luna Harrison? I love her artwork. I’ve got my eye on a gorgeous flamingo print for our bedroom and I may well stock up on some greeting cards, too! The hedgehog & hare greetings cards from Oxfam¬†go¬†perfectly.

 

I found a wooden cutlery drawer in a charity shop and turned it into a shelf for Madeleine’s bits & bobs. All it took was a quick lick of Annie Sloan Antoinette and some old wallpaper…easy peasy!

 

 

 

 

Now, just look at these fabric wall stickers from Chocovenyl! Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m not usually a fan of wall decals but the matt¬†finish of these PVC free stickers means they are far from tacky. There are a few different¬†sets to choose from but I fell in love with the birch tree so knew I had to get the Birch Woodland Set*. The best thing about these stickers is that they¬†can be reused and moved multiple times which is perfect for those of us in rented accommodation. Make sure you keep the backing paper so that you can stick them back on if you need to. No mess, no fuss and they look so pretty. Madeleine was so excited when she first saw them!

And if you love them as much as we do you are in for a treat because I have teamed up with¬†the kind folk at Chocovenyl¬†to give you the¬†chance to win¬†a mini wall sticker of your choice! Whether it’s a woodland animal, butterflies or cars you’re bound to find the perfect addition for your little one’s room. It’s a shame I can’t enter myself; I quite fancy the Belle & Boo hot air balloon for baby’s room!

All you have to do to enter is head over to¬†my¬†Facebook page and ‘like’ the pinned post. Simple as that! Why not check out Chocovenyl’s page while you’re there. Entries close 12 noon Wednesday 25th Novenber. Good luck!
