Pimp My Room: 1st Grader Edition

Aidyn has been asking about redecorating her room over the summer. Since I love a good project and love to paint and decorate...well, she got her wish!
Here she is in her 'old' room. I guess it's not horrible, but it's not really decorated, per se. It was kind of a mishmash of furniture and "inventory".
Not a very cohesive design...
So the giant old 80's style dresser got a fresh coat (or 5) of white paint.
The drawers got pretty new handles that Aidyn picked out.
Here's how I jazzed up the mirrors. I made them into memory boards so she had a place to put her pictures and postcards.
And here is the finished product...
Aidyn picked out the paint color and bedding. She has pretty darn good taste!

The finished dresser! Not too shabby!
The reading corner and desk area.
Here is the big reveal to Aidyn. It was a total HGTV moment. She had her eyes closed and when she opened them she said "Is this my room?!?!" And started to cry.
She cried for about 5 minutes. She kept saying "I love it! It's so pretty! I love it!"
And finally...that sweet smile!

That adorable smiling face made all the work (and sore muscles and trip to the chiropractor) worth it. She couldn't be any happier and is thrilled with her new room. Which makes her mommy thrilled too!

Great room. Question about the old one.....when you were taking the "before" pictures, was one of your legs longer than the other? The stars painted on one wall seem to be leaning. Or are they straight and the rest of your house leaning?
