Just a little more pink.


As if the girl's room didn't have enough pink, I went and added some more. At first when I saw these $30 night tables on Craigslist, I was thinking white.


But then I discovered Martha Stewart's "Ballet Slipper" from Home Depot.


And my visions of white started turning a little rosy.


The drawer pulls on top were broken, so I threaded fabric through for temporary handles. One day I'd like to purchase these darling knobs from Anthropologie.

They are a little spendy though, especially considering they cost almost as much as the tables themselves. But they'll definitely add the finishing touch.

We swapped out their table lamps with two swing-arm sconces we had in storage. I'm liking the practicality of them. We also added an old jute throw rug to provide a bit more texture to the room, and my old chippy white bench from childhood now sits at the foot of Middle Bear's bed.


Here is the before:

And after:

Not too drastic of a difference. Just a little more pink.

On the topic of children's rooms, you all need to go see what Erica Cook from Moth Design cooked up. It's a design blog dedicated to children's spaces. What an excellent idea huh? It's called "Little Moth"...big style for little people. SO sweet.

  25. I have seen Martha's Ballet Slipper on a few pieces and I have been hoping I can use it someday. It looks adorable on your nightstands. The girl's room is just precious. Love your old bench at the bottom of the middle bed. SO cute!!

  26. That soft pink is really my favorite of all the pink hues. Reminds me of the inside of a sea shell, which is so soothing, especially in a little girl's room. I can picture being in bed in that room listening to a rain storm and feeling VERY cozy. I like the change of lighting, as well. My daughter has a wall swing-arm and it just makes way for more of her little bits and pieces on the night stand. Wonderfully done! xx P&H

  47. What a precious room for your little girls. The pink is perfect!

  48. Rie: Those handles are on sale at Anthropologie, at least the aqua green glass version for $7.95 each. Don't know if you're interested but thought I'd pass it along since you like them. Don't know if that color would work for you or not, but great price.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I recently found your blog and can't tell you how much I love it! Can you tell me the name of the paint color on your girl's walls? Thanks~

  54. I've seen ribbon threaded through the holes left from a previous handle, and it looked really cute. Worth a try? You could use matching colours or contrasting, depending on the look you're going for.

  56. Those same Anthro pulls are on sale on their website right now for just $8! Funny because I was looking at them last week and then happened to stumble across your blog today and saw this post from almost a year ago.

  57. Rie, what color do you have on the walls? It's just what I've been looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's called "China Moon", a Valspar color from Lowes. I like it too... it's my favorite neutral!
