Lillia's Room Makeover

We started this makeover process about a month ago....and I don't think I have any before pictures!  Working on a tight budget, I used a lot of what I already had and figured out how to make it work for the room.

We already had the curtains and I didn't want to go buy new ones, so they became the color to work off of.  After convincing the hubs to let me paint (I told him he didn't have to do any painting....he just had to finance it!) I got the same color brown from our house in Huxley and went to town. 

Then things started falling into place!  Found the quilt at Target on Clearance!  :)  Found the polka-dot lamp on sale at HomeGoods (also at HomeGoods was the fun pillow....and I did spend full price on it because it was just too fun!)  My folks brought the nightstand with them when they visited and I painted it white.  Found the bookshelf at Target for $13!  Got the window pane for a headboard at a garage sale and I think it turned out cute!  Already had the window and bought some fabric to turn it into a picture memory board.  Also already had the wall hooks...just painted them blue.
One of my favorite pieces in the room is the pink window with the fabric tree.  I found the tutorial here.  I think it turned out pretty cute!  Lillia enjoyed helping me with it and refers to it as "mommy's project"!
All in all, I think her room is cute and will work for awhile!  She can grow into it and we can make changes as she gets older.  Soon, the changing pad will no longer be in her room as we're hoping to get the potty training thing under way before baby comes!  :)

Thanks for taking the tour of Lillia's room!
