DIY -A Cool Girls’ Bedroom Design Idea – Before and After Pictures

Share this ❤️


DIY- A cool girls’ bedroom design idea with before and after pictures.  Hi, I’m Sandra Wilkinson and I just redesigned my 11-year-old daughter’s pink bedroom into a cool-looking turquoise dream come true bedroom.

The bedroom’s redesign could not come fast enough for Savanna whose bedroom now has a fluffy throw pillow, fluffy lamp and a fringed lamp, sequined stool, and a new seat cushion.  Repainted shelf, lamp, name letters, and bulletin board.  Black tulle curtains, repainted desk, dresser, and bedside table with new knobs.  Chalkboard wall, chalkboard dots, and dry-erase-board dots.

Bedroom MakeoverThe cost of the bedroom design project was about $185.00.  Thankfully, due to previous painting projects, I had extra wall primer to cover the VERY pink upper walls.  Having the extra paint helped cut down the cost of the bedroom makeover along with already having other odds and ends like cords and lights for making hanging chandeliers.

DIY -Cool Girls' Bedroom Design Ideas - Before and After PicturesWe moved to a new home in Iowa about 2-1/2 years ago when Savanna was nine years old.  Her new pink bedroom perfectly matched her bedroom decor from her bedroom back in Illinois.  However, we did replace her twin bed with a Queen bed a few months after the move to Iowa.

Pink bedroom before makeoverNow that she is 11 and ready for a change, she picked Turquoise for her bedroom design color theme.  I let her pick out her own bedding from Burlington Coat Factory which happened to have a great price, but the quality reflected the huge discount.  It will have to be replaced soon enough, but my daughter is so happy with her new room.”

Dresser Before and After

Bedroom Desk Before and AfterSue: “It’s clever how after painting them white, Sandra painted the line under the upper drawers on the dresser and desk black and then added black knobs giving them a completely new look. Getting a new bedroom design does not have to mean buying new furniture.”

Fluffy turquoise lampFun lighting! All of the lamps were pink so I replaced the two bedside table lamp shades by covering them with turquoise fluffy material and repainted the lamp bases white.

Black lamp with fun trimPainted her pink desk lamp and shade black and added fun trim.

DIY hanging pendant lightsMade some DIY hanging pendant lights inspired by tutorials and ideas I found at DIY Garden Chandeliers and How About Orange.  For the blue hanging chandelier I used leftover tulle from the bed skirt (seen below).  The lamps for this bedroom design were very easy, cheap, and most of all fun to make.

Black tulle bedroom curtains Black tulle curtains replaced the pink drapes.

Fluffy turquoise seat cushionThe fluffy throw pillow and seat cushion were made with the same material I used for the bedside lamps.

The tulle is a perfect addition to the skirt not only because it looks so beautiful, but I especially like it because Savanna is an ice skater. The skirting reminds me of the costumes skater’s wear.

Turquoise sequin covered stoolThe stool had a green pastel flower cushion before.

I plan to make a headboard out of plywood and cover it with the same FLUFFY material I used for the lamps, cushion, and throw pillow.  I estimate an additional $60.00 including my already purchased chalkboard paint, chalkboard dot, and dry erase-board dot.

Not bad for a complete overhaul, a week’s work, and a huge smile.

Thank you Sandra for sharing the cool bedroom makeover you did for Savanna. I could not love it more.  It’s incredible!  When you get the headboard done, we have got to see it!!

P.S. Sandra is my sister and Savanna is my much adored niece.
