Tiny Bedroom in da' house.

We have one room left that we haven't used as a bedroom.
 It's small with coved ceilings.  We used to use it as play room when all the kids were tiny.
 Most recently, it's been for storage. 
But, it's time to make it into a bedroom for 8 yr. old Monica. 
It will be a perfect fort for her. 
She's already staked her claim:


It's down the bare bones and full of possibilities.
It needs to be doused with bleach and scoured.
The a layer of insulation needs to be added to the sides.
I need to come up with some creative lighting. 
 I need to find the vintage vibe mixed with Monica's coolness.
 Hmmmm.....
Oh! I am motivated.  


I get to do a little girls room in this cozy little nook and I'm pretty pumped.
(Quandie, lookee - I've discovered I still had one little red chair....)

A few years ago, my mom sent me her childhood doll house. Thank You Patty!
(It's a different one than the one in  the laundry room.
I've been bestowed with not 1 but 2 fantastic old doll houses.)

Moni is the perfect age to use and and treat decently.
It emerged in the room clean out.
It's a cryin' shame it's been stored away. 




This room is the little tucked door on the left.
(it's now painted with chalkboard paint)


After a weekend of cleaning - it looks this good again.
I love the Goodwill drop-off lane.
They are probably sick of me.

This little room change idea has opened up TWO more room redos.
I'll explain that next post.

Will the house ever be done?  No.

xo Jeanne.

  5. I loved this little attic room for a little girl here: http://mthopeacademy.blogspot.com/2010/09/princess-tower.html

    I thought of it immediately when I saw your sloped ceilings.

  6. A small room means a much bigger challenge to maximize design and usability. I am fond to say that I am up for this challenge.

It's no fun getting 40 comments on how super handy it is to purchase viagra.)
