chloe's new bedroom: the final chapter

It's about time, right? We've officially been residents of Gig Harbor for three months now, and an update of Chloe's room is long overdue! In my last post about her room, I said I was going to use peacock colors to decorate. As much as I still love that idea and may use those colors in the future, we ended up slightly tweaking the idea, and went with turqouise and white, with purple as an accent color. So, without further ado, here ya go!

The pictures hanging above the bed are from Etsy (big surprise!).

This chair matches the loveseat we have in our living room. It didn't fit in the living room, so we decided it would look cute in Chloe's room. Turns out it makes a great launch pad for her to jump off and land on the bed.

I bought the purple curtains online from Best Home Fashions, Inc., an Amazon store.

I just love the ruffle detail on the top!

All of Chloe's books are stored next to the bed. The white nightstand is the one we found on Craigslist and stained. The smaller shelf is my old nighstand, but works perfectly to hold her books, coloring books, and crayons.

Look Laura, "Each Peach Pear Plum"!

Believe it or not, these two bears are six times older than Chloe! The one on the left is Sunshine Bear, Tony's childhood pal. The smaller one was mine, his name is Teddy. Very original, I know!

Chloe even did a little of her own decorating. She arranged all of her
"special treasures" on the Ikea dresser we stained white, and on top of this shelf, which was a hand-me-down from my friend Natasha.

Chloe also added some flare to her mirror by adding a photostrip of the three of us.

One of my biggest concerns was having enough storage space in the bedroom for all of Chloe's toys. And trust me, she has a TON! Luckily, all of her toys have a special place, so it hasn't been a problem. The toy chest at the foot of her bed holds a lot, and it's not even half full.

We also put my old dresser in her closet, and each drawer is full of toys, and she keeps her play sets on the top.

If you haven't noticed, Chloe is obsessed with stuffed animals. She keeps her favorites out for display, and the rest have a permanent home on the top shelf in her closet.

And last but not least, there is another set of plastic drawers full of miscellaneous toys and her tub full of Legos in the little nook behind the door.

So there you have it, folks! A very detailed description of Chloe's room. I love how it turned out, but most importantly, I'm glad Chloe loves her new room, too.
