I need some ideas and advice on how to do a bedroom makeover for a 9 year old girl. My little sister will be having her 9th birthday on June 27th. Right now she has a shared bedroom with our little brother but now our other brother is moving into the basement and my little brother is moving into her room. Since she is getting a room that will be hers and hers alone we want to give the room a complete makeover!
Everything I have told you here is a surprise. She doesn't even know she is getting her own room let alone a completely new room. All that's not important but I thought that it would be more interesting if I gave you some background.
What is important is that her favorite colors are blue and pink. I was wondering if you could point out some some good things to put in her room to make it cool and girly and tell me where I could get them?
I just want her room to be really awesome because she has never had her own room before and she really deserves it! If you have any ideas or tips on how to do a complete bedroom makeover for a 9 year old girl who loves pink and blue; please help!
From the webmaster:
Rosalie, you are the best sister ever! I'll be happy to work with you on some girl bedroom decorating ideas that will be appealing to a pre-teen.
You say she likes pink and blue and that you want the bedroom to be "girly" but before I make any suggestions could you tell me whether her bed is twin, full or queen size and if she is into lace and flowers or is there a particular theme she might like. As an example, does she like cheerleading, softball, ballerinas or would she prefer something cute like polka dots?
Also, it would be helpful if you could give me a ballpark figure on your decorating budget if you know what that might be.
