Bedroom Decorating Ideas from My Lastest Makeover

Bedroom ideas for teen girls room

I don’t know how the heck it took me seven months to makeover my oldest daughters room, but it did. Not because there is anything over-the-top crazy in here but because I worked on it little by little. After doing a few One Room Challenges (see the kitchen, bedroom and living room), I decided it works out better in the end if I take my time. Even if one room does take months and months. I’m sharing this as finished today in hopes that maybe you’ll find a few bedroom decorating ideas for yourself.

Though nothing is ever really finished around here.

This makeover started in January when my husband agreed to finally help me rip up the old carpet in here and install new floors. When my husband agrees to a project, I like to get started asap. Before he changes his mind. Which means didn’t think to take before pictures of this room. But you can be sure those old carpets were in terrible condition. It had a stain or two from Icee drinks my daughter would sneak up there. Then, as she got older and became a one-woman animal rescue crew, it became a foster shelter for pets.

Now that I think about it, it’s a good thing I didn’t take before pictures. I don’t want to remember those carpets! Since I’ve been sharing the progress on this room as I went along, I’ll just update you on the finished details.

Finding the right headboard took the longest. I knew the one that I wanted from my original design plan, but it was pretty expensive. After entertaining other options, I decided that the initial white tufted headboard* I envisioned had to be the one. But I waited and waited for it to go on sale, which it did on Memorial Day weekend. I snagged it on sale, along with a 20% off coupon and gift cards. I ended up getting it for about half of the original price!

Once I finally had the headboard, I was able to hang the gallery wall of baskets that I had purchased months before. The chandelier was a great bargain, I’m really happy with its quality for the price.

I had gotten this dresser from Facebook marketplace and refinished it by removing the paint for a natural look. I’m still debating on whether to add a light wash of white wax as I did on these hutch shelves, but that’s something I haven’t gotten around to yet.

I never spend money on real paintings for my home, but I fell in love with this artist’s work when I went to Bloom Market in Virginia. It’s quite unique and I love how subtle yet pretty it is.

The big dresser was already in the room, I gave that a makeover with white paint right after we did the floors.

We don’t have a dedicated office in our house, so I incorporated desks into both of my daughter’s rooms. There used to be a horse picture over this desk, which I still love but it really didn’t go with the new look so I replaced it with this metal grid instead. The horse picture will eventually be used somewhere else. I wanted to purchase a new desk chair (love this one) but for now, I’m using this wicker chair from my dining nook.

I added a small basket as a catch-all and the pencil holder is really a planter.

When my husband and I replaced the flooring, he also redid the molding throughout the room with craftsmen style moldings. That made a huge difference in the room and really made the DIY mirrored closet doors stand out as well. I’d have to say that is my favorite thing about the room now.

What do you think of the pink accents in here? Pink wasn’t part of my initial plan, but it goes nicely with the painting.

I managed to fit two dressers and a desk in here without it feeling too cramped. As for bedroom decorating ideas, having a desk next to the bed serves double duty and is a good use of space in smaller rooms.

So as you see, even though the room is done, it’s never really done around here. 😉

    Love the room and pink accents👍 What is the paint coloR?
    What color paint would you suggest if puTting house on the market?
    replaCing carpet with another mushroom color! Thanks.

    1. Thank you, Colleen. The paint color is called Rhinestone by Sherwin Williams, it’s a great neutral. With a mushroom colored carpet and considering the house will be on the market, I would go with white on the walls. I like White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Good luck!

  2. Looks lovely! Inviting, feminine, without being too “girly”. Pink was a good choice. Headboard was worth the wait!

    So pretty. Love the headboard.

  4. Mary Evans says:

    Love the room. Just enough pink to be really pretty. THE white headboard is awesome. I would lOve this in my guest room. Love your ideas and your site. Always good ideas and AlWAYS GREAT PICTURES.

    1. Thank you Mary, I appreciate that! 🙂

  5. What a lovely makeover. So clean and timeless! It will be great for years and even when the girls move out you will feel good about have guests stay there. Pinning

  6. Oh, I definitely love the pink accents… it is just the right amount of color with the natural finishes and white. I like the small dresser in natural, too… which is odd for me because i love white furniture. But it really looks great with the baskets and the natural pillow cover! Love this, Roxanne! Hope to see you at Tuesday Turn About tomorrow!

  7. Beautiful style, texture and colors. You have lovely taste without going over the top. I like the desk as an accent piece as well.
    Thanks for the inspiration..

    1. Thank you Meegan, you are too kind!

  8. Really pretty, Roxanne! I like the pink but then I am partial to pink. If your daughter likes it then it’s perfect! I like the soft rattan and wood looks, too.

    Great remodel and the closet doors are pretty,

    Hi Roxanne. I love the bedroom but the dresser needs a white was or white wash. It would look so good with the beautiful wood.

  16. I love your makeover and colors. I also take my time in making decisions for a space. I transform in my mind many combinations until I decide what colors I’ll use and items to buy and hopefully snag some Items on sale.

  17. Nice room! It is so pretty! I love the mirrored closet doors.
