Ever since I wrote the post on 20+ Budget Friendly Drapes I’ve been itching to create a girl’s bedroom with the curtains below as the inspiration piece. I cannot justify redecorating my 3 year old daughter’s bedroom so making a girl’s bedroom mood board was the solution for getting the itch out of my system.:-)
I also have been thinking about uses for old window panes and came up with the idea of using the window pane as a décor piece/dry erase message board. I did some research and dry erase markers can be used on glass and wipe off just as well as they do on a whiteboard.
I was able to incorporate the curtains and dry erase window pane message board into this “Fun and Fancy” girl’s Bedroom:
I secretly hope (or not so secretly because I just told you) that someone takes this mood board and uses it as a jumping off point in re-doing their daughter’s room! Here are the sources for the items above. The words in blue are direct links to the products.
