Welcome to another week! Today I am going to show you my Miss 16 Year Old’s bedroom. Did I ever mention that my children are pigs? Why yes! I believe I have! For her bedroom to be clean enough to take pictures is a very rare occurrence around here. I do not clean her room for her, except for once a year. She usually goes to visit her aunt during the summer, and I will do a BIG clean. Sometimes her grandma comes over and helps her clean it. If it is too bad of a disaster she is not allowed to go anywhere. That is usually all of the leverage I need to get her moving. She has very important places to go after all! But even then, she does not clean it like I would if I were cleaning it. At the end of the post I will give a list of things to be done in this room. Although, we will probably not do too much. She is almost 17 and only has about 1 1/2 years left before college (sniff sniff). After that, this will probably become my son’s room, and we will move her room up to where he is. He will need more privacy by then and since she will only be home here and there, we are going to give him her room, which is downstairs and has its own bathroom.

Before we moved into this house in June, her bedroom looked like this:
It was being used as a playroom for the previous owner’s two little boys.
Here is a list of what still needs to be done in this room:
- Paint Vanity
- Paint ceiling fan
- Upgrade wall shelving
- Stencil song lyrics on the wall
- Personalize more with décor
- Paint some of the picture frames to match the décor
Is this room perfect? No. Does it look like a professional decorated it? No. Does my daughter like it? Yes! It is totally her and she did it all herself. She is very happy with it. She had to downsize when we moved. She had to get rid of a desk, and went from a huge walk in closet to two smaller closets. I will show you her closets in another post.
As I mentioned above, she will most likely switch rooms with her brother when she goes to college, so I don’t have any big plans to change much before then, because at that point we will have two rooms to paint and change when the switch takes place.
Update Jan. 2015: See this room the way it looks now here.
Have a Great week all! Thanks for checking out my daughter’s bedroom today! I am linking up here:
