We Finally Finished Brie’s Room

This post is long overdue and picture heavy, but we are very proud of the final results of all our hard work on her room! Now of course we will be moving and I have to do it all over again Crying face

Sorry for the crazy bad picture, but this one was all I could find to show you the BEFORE of this room…


I won’t go into details on how we updated this closet into a dressing room, but please check out the details here if you’re interested, it’s a pretty cool transformation if I do say so myself.


We painted the room the same soothing Farrow & Ball Pavilion Gray that we painted our oldest daughter’s room. I love this color so much I’m pretty sure I will be painting rooms in the new house this color.

Grey painted bedroom for a girl

I made this jewelry holder for her from a vintage cabinet door and painted it a custom coral color ASCP. And I just adore this vintage plant stand that I painted Duck Egg, it’s perfect for holding stuffed animals. This is like 1/100th of the stuffed animals this child has, but as part of the decluttering I packed up all but these, let me tell you she was THRILLED!

Here you can see where we worked in the vintage French doors into her décor, as funny as she was about these doors she really likes them now… WHEW!

grey painted girls bedroom

I love this owl print I bought, it’s by a local Richmond artist and the colors were just perfect for her room. My SAH made the frame and installed the glass and mat board for me, all I did was paint the frame but I think I did a good job Smile

As much as I don’t like seeing all of her “crap”, Brie does, so if I have to see it at least I can put it on a cool rustic shelf right? This was an old store display, I just cleaned it up and we attached it to the wall for stability. The cork board is for her to display some of her drawings, she draws A LOT and is very good so I do love seeing them displayed!

This was the last project I needed to finish before sharing this room with you… I bought this great bench at auction, we made some modifications, painted it and made a cushion for it.

Now it’s the perfect window seat with a removable cushion. I will tell you I put off this project as long as I could as I dreaded sewing the cushion… I did a pretty good job, but I’m still no seamstress!

Custom window seat update

I let Brie pick out the piping fabric, she loves blue and this is a great print… I’m also going to make some pillows out of the same fabric… one day…

This is the view from the far side of her room, you can see her fabulous new dressing area and into the shared Jack and Jill bathroom.

When she has friends over they love to close the curtains and play in the dressing room!

Her wonderful closet space! I still love these grey floating floors we installed, I think I may need to find a room to install these in at our new home too…

grey painted and stencled custom closet

Last but not least is the bathroom area she shares with one of her sisters. I made the shower curtain before we even moved into this house, as shower curtains are pretty easy to make and I love the custom look you can achieve with one.

grey bathroom

I love this little “spa” area I have set up for them… and it’s not just for show either, they really use this stuff, doesn’t it look pretty too though?

So that’s Brie’s new bedroom, dressing room and bathroom! I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Thanks as always for stopping by, hope you come back soon!

Until next time…

  2. It’s beautiful! I love that gray. I’m looking for the “perfect” gray to paint in our new house. I’ll have to add this to list of possibilities!



  3. Oh Susan everything is just gorgeous !!!!!
    That bench – you actually put piping on it and then say ” you’re no seamstress “????
    Love the Owl art – and the color you chose on the frame is perfection –
    Really I just love everything in that room – what I wouldn’t give to have Brie’s dressing room!


  4. That’s so cute! and if you can do piping, your a seamstress…trust me! I literally hated my sewing machine so much (cuz of that stupid bobbin thingy and I had arguments, literally!) that I sold it for 2 bucks at a yard sale just to get even!

    Love the wire shelf with the cute tags on it….the whole room is adorable, good job!


  5. Love the gray paint in the bedroom. Thanks for the lovely tour too! That spa basket is so adorable……


  6. Just gorgeous! I love the gold accents in the chandelier and mirror. So elegant!


  7. Beautiful is the word! Lovely space you got here.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)
