Decor Revamps for Tween Girls
All of the sudden, my baby is a tween girl! Some of the decor I picked out for her when she was a toddler is all wrong now. Plus she’s got her own passions and her space should reflect what she’s into now.
That’s why I transformed some of her outdated decor into something fun and very “her.”
Supplies: Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Delicate, Everlasting and Treasure. I also used painter’s tape (I was going to use masking tape, but then decided painter’s tape was a better bet). I also used Soft Touch Varnish. I also got a wooden “M” from Michael’s. The piece I wanted to update was something I picked up at Pottery Barn kids many years ago.
1. Do 2-3 coats of Everlasting on wooden piece.
2. Stick painters tape on piece, lining them up evenly.
3. Remove every other piece of tape.
4. Brush on a coat of Delicate on the exposed stripes.
5. Remove the tape and let dry.
6. Add a coat of Soft Touch Varnish.
7. Paint the letter Treasure.
8. Use hot glue to attach the letter to the wood piece.
My daughter is really into music and signing. When I spied this cool lighted star at Michaels, I was excited to integrate it into a new space I have planned for her in her room.
But I wanted to give it a little color and sparkle first.
Supplies: Metal Star from Michael’s, Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Delicate, and adhesive rhinestones.
1. Remove the lights and paint the metal stars 2-3 times with Delicate.
2. Add the rhinestones and the lights.
Want to see the whole kitten caboodle? I’ll be sharing more updates to my daughter’s space (using DecoArt paint) next month!
