How to make your teen girl happy with a room makeover

 Do you want to know How to make your Teen Girl HappyYou give her what she wants, of course!

A room makeover with everything she loves…

Gold, Glam, Fun, Fashion and New York City!

Ok…you can’t really put NYC in her room when you live in a small town far from the Big Apple BUT you can give a girl a dream filled with memories of her trips to NYC!

You see, my girl is thirteen, and she dreams of living the the city…New York City to be exact!

We have taken her there 2 times already and she navigates those streets like a local.

So when it came time to makeover her room,

I knew exactly what we would do!

I haven’t painted her room in 4 years…an eternity for a woman who loves to paint 🙂

First up was Mindful Gray paint for the walls.  (My new FAVORITE color!) Then the rest of her room makeover was LOTS of projects!  Too many to describe in one post.

Some of the projects included painting her childhood bed with Maison Blanche Chalk Paint, gold spray painted table, the fur covered stool, T shirt that got framed, the custom finger painted hearts, the gold lamp revamp, the Duct Tape Art, and MORE!

For now, I hope you are inspired by lots of pictures.

  7. Sonya, You did an amazing job. Lots of little details to bring the whole thing together. My daughter is going away on a missions trip in a few weeks and I’m planning on re-doing her room while she’s gone. Can’t wait 🙂

  9. Thanks Janet! I know how you’ve been into doing projects this last year…there are plenty in this room to inspire!

  10. Thanks so much for stopping by! Can I ask…how did you come across my blog? Great idea to finish your daughters room for her 13th birthday. I just helped a lady do just that, she only had the weekend to pull it together while her daughter was out of town! ~Sonya

  11. Sonya,

    I’m new to your blog. You did a fantastic job on your daughter’s room. Our daughter’s are almost the same age, Celine is 12 and will be 13 in October. Maybe I will finish her room for her 13th birthday, I’ve got to get busy because I have less than 6 months! LOL Thanks for the great inspiration.
