The Girls’ New Bedroom

by | Jul 30, 2009 | Home Sweet Home | 27 comments

I am so happy with how the girls’ bedroom turned out!  It is so cute and girly!!!

I took some photos to post, but they hardly do it justice.  I think it looks so much prettier in person.   The girls were so excited and are really enjoying their new room.

Like the boys’ bunk beds, the girls’ bedroom furniture was also handed down to us from my parents.  It had been the twins bedroom furniture, before my mom redid their room a couple years ago.

The crucifixes above the beds were favors from one of Hubby’s brothers’ ordinations, and blessed by the newly ordained “Uncle Father”!

 

On the side wall, above each of the girls’ beds, is their baby picture and some wall decals that matched their bedding.  It was so much fun to decorate the room with the flowers and butterflies, plus they were inexpensive and moveable! (And Twinkle Toes LOVES Butterflies!)

~Twinkle Toes ~ 
 
~ Chiquita ~
I am also thinking about maybe hand-painting or stenciling their names near their pictures, but I haven’t decided for sure. 
Above their window is this cute little quote that I found awhile back at a local boutique.  I also have some curtains to hang, but before I can I need to exchange the rod for one that is a little bit longer. 

On the floor in the middle of the room is a bright flowery rug.

At the foot of Chiquita’s bed is their bookshelf.  There was a little hole already on the side so I ended up hanging Twinkle Toes’ Carmelite Cross there for now, a gift from one of her Uncles.

On top of the bookshelf is a darling picture hubby found at an antique shop, when he was still single, and a little lamp from my mom.   So precious!

Here is a photo taken from the doorway.   The armoire is at the foot of Twinkle Toes’ bed and their little play kitchen is to the right.

Just inside the door is this beautiful Holy Water Font, from Twinkle Toes’ Godmother.  (Which reminds me, I still haven’t hung the boys’ back up in their new room…)

Here is the opposite end of the room, behind the door.  Along the back wall is the closet organizer.  I am thinking of possibly hanging a curtain on each side to cover their clothing, at least until we are able to add a wall and/or doors to finish the closet.  
 

On the open closet shelf are two angels that were a gift from their Great Aunt Bridget, my dad’s youngest sister and a WONDERFUL Aunt, on the day they were born.  Aunt Bridget is the one that always takes care of our children for us when we are at the hospital welcoming a new little one.

 

Also behind the door is a Fairy themed growth chart that was made by my own, very talented, Godmother!

She also gave the girls this beautiful artwork from one of her collections.
 

I wish I could have gotten a better picture, it looks so much nicer in person!

Well, it is now bedtime for my girls and so I am off to read them a story and tuck them in for the night.  Goodnight and God bless!


Update:  I posted a picture of the new curtains here

    It's beautiful. I've told you that Ava has the same quilt, and we painted their room almost the exact color of your girls' room a few months ago. I'll have to post a picture! It came out great!

    Love it! How gloriously girly!! It is just SO CUTE…I'd love a room like that! All of the coordination in the room must have taken a lot of work…beautiful finished product.
    May I ask, where did you find the butterfly/flower wall decals? If they are easy to remove, they would be perfect for my daughter's side of the co-ed bedroom.

    Jessica the room is so sweet. We need to do our girls room too! I love what you have done. The banner is my favorite! I was looking at the closet and thinking the curtians would make a nice addition. If it was a boys room I would suggest building the wall, but since its the girls…….I say leave it open and add the curtians. Thanks for sharing!

    It turned out so nice, Jessica. I hope they keep it nice and clean. 🙂 The boys' room looks great too. I wish my children's bedrooms were so spacious.
    Maybe some time you could post about using holy water fonts in your home. (We are new to these things, you know.)
    🙂
    God bless you, Kristyn

    "Uncle Father," hee hee. My youngest brother is a seminarian, and my four yr old was wondering if she can still call him "Uncle Tim" once he becomes a priest! I like "Uncle Father," too funny! We already joke that another uncle is called "Uncle Doctor" since he earned his doctorate earlier this year!

    Cute room – I love the rug. (Probably because I love Target!)
    And clever way to rig up a closet where there isn't a real one!

    What a lovely space for your sweet girls, Jessica! I have to admit, you and a few other blog moms have inspired me into a fit of organizing and redecorating! Thanks for sharing the inspiration through great photos!God bless.

    Lovely room! We have the same bedding in my girls' room! My girls are older than yours and it's still perfect (9 and 13). I llove that you have such an abundance of faith items in thier rooms. Just having friends over to play is an act of witness! What a special haven you have made.
    I put my girls names on their walls using wooden letters from the craft store and blue tak. They have been repainted (we went through a polka dot phase last year) and moved several times (they were above beds, now Min's is over her desk and Crickets is over her stuffed reading chair) and they didn't make a mark on the walls.
    you for sharing the pics with us.

    Thank you everyone!! I was so excited to share all these photos with you.

    Sara ~ The decals are from Target. They were part of the Happy Flowers Bedding Line.

    Steph ~ I LOVE that idea, and just might use it!! Thank you!

    Came over here today from Elizabeth's blog – all these cute girls room are so inspiring! I have to ask – are these beds cot or twin size? (I have a couple of cot sized iron beds and I need a mattress resource.)

    Jen L. ~ The bed frames are rather narrow (which is prefect for this room!) but they still hold twin sized mattresses. I hope you are able to find what you are looking for.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
