I’ve wanted to update the kids bedrooms for a while now. I decided to start with Sister’s bedroom simply because I had more of an idea of what I wanted for it. I wanted something for her room that would last her awhile. It would be nice if it lasted until she was old enough to really have an opinion on how her room should be decorated… say twenty. LOL. I didn’t want to do character bedding—who knows if she’d still like the character in two years—or typical little girl’s bedding (although I found a fantastic 4-piece Pretty Pony Twin Bedding Set that I know she would have loved). I wanted something that was cute, colorful, playful, and could conceivably be loved by a 3 year old or a 13 year old and was drawn more toward teen bedding everywhere I looked.
I found the Deco Dot 4-piece Twin Bedding Set by JoJo Designs, at Beyond Bedding, and absolutely fell in love. I thought it would go well will the taupe walls in her room, not to mention the turquoise area rug and curtains, and pink accents, already in her room. I could redo her bedroom without spending a fortune.
And apparently, so does she. She was pleased as punch to see her new bedding with hot pink, bubble gum pink, turquoise, lime green, orange, and chocolate brown dots all over. She could care less about the coordinating brown bed skirt, and I knew that she wouldn’t have liked the suggested coordinating sheets that are white with brown trim. Instead, we got the 3 pc Twin Sheet Set for the Pink and Green Flower Bedding Collection. She was excited to be getting pink sheets. She’s always had to use white or blue.
I don’t think I have ever seen her so excited to climb under the covers. LOL.
The comforter and sheets fit the bed perfectly, and the bed skirt does too. I do have to say, though, that the sheets wrinkled BADLY in the wash. I guess that is what you get when you cram a comforter, bed skirt, 100% cotton sheets, and pillowcases into the washer and dryer. Next time I will try washing them on their own, and see if they wrinkle as bad.
The valance is too large for her window. It is 84 inches, and I think her window is 54. I thought about doubling the valance, but think I may tack it with some darts in between the tabs instead. It looks cute with the turquoise curtain, if not for being too big.
Now I need some of those colorful dots for her wall. I can’t wait to finish redoing her room, and plan to install new shelves in her closet next. so I can try to harness her corral of toys!
Next up? A new bedding set for Mister!
