Our older girls (ages 4 and 3) share a bedroom and my next house project is to give them a little shared bedroom makeover! Right now, everything is sort of a hodge podge of things, but (very) soon, they’ll have new beds and some fun new decorations for their shared bedroom. I have pinned tons of things to their Pinterest board over the years, and I’ve noticed what I like the most about a shared bedroom – bright spaces, fun colors, and things that work for any age! I’ve collected a few items for their shared bedroom makeover over the past few months and so far, here’s my plan…
I bought some really worn matching Jenny Lind beds a couple of months ago and my dear sister in-law spent countless hours prepping and painting them this gorgeous tone of aqua blue. (The beds pictured above are from Land of Nod, but $$$!) I wanted fun, matching bedding and had quite a hard time finding something that was both cute and affordable. These duvet covers from Ikea fit the bill! Of course, we’ll have to add some fun throw pillows to the mix. I’m loving the gold “Hello Lovely” pillow from Target and of course, we had to have the donut pillow from Paper Source. The rainbow heart rug from Land of Nod is on my wish list. Rugs are always so expensive so we’ll have to save up for this one.
Right now, the girls’ shared bedroom is bright white. I plan on keeping it that way for several years. To add some pops of color to the room, I like these decals from Petit Collage and of course, some fun art prints and other fun things to hang on the wall. The “Sisters” pennant is from Sharp Tooth Studio, the Frida Kahlo print is from a small shop on Etsy, the bright and cheery dream catcher is from Urban Outfitters, (maybe I can DIY?!) and the “For Like Ever” print is from Super Rural. Until I find a night stand that I love, the girls will share an Ikea Kallax. It’s perfect for cute wire bins, baskets, books, a music player, and more. They already have a painted yellow dresser (similar to the one above) and a cool vintage globe they got from their grandparents for Christmas. I’m looking at these aqua pom pom curtains to bring in lots of bright sunlight and of course, we’ll have to get some black-out shades to put underneath as well. Last but not least, I’ve got my eyes on a set of Bright Lab lights! I can’t decide if I want to go with the rainbow set or make a color scheme of my own!
I’m super excited about the girls shared bedroom makeover and can’t wait for it all to come together! I’ll do my best to keep you updated and I’ll for sure show you the finished product!
