It was a few months back that Project Nursery featured a custom mood board I designed for Ava’s big girl room. At that time, she and her twin brother shared this room:

Since then we moved and other priorities took precedence over her room decor until now.  It’s now been five months at the new house and I’m finally on track to creating a fresh, playful little space Ava can call her own.  Fortunately she hasn’t voiced her design preferences which means I don’t have to entertain the idea of a Dora the Explorer wall decal or comforter set.

Initially I planned to purchase all new furniture, but then decided a few secondhand finds would leave more decorating dollars for other projects such as the boys’ room.  Last week I found this armoire for only $20 on Craigslist…and here’s the transformation:

Armoire Paint : Ballet Slipper Pink, Krylon
Hardware Paint: Metallics Brushed Nickel, Krylon

If the decision was left to my husband, he would’ve simply added a fresh coat of white paint.  That too would’ve been gorgeous, but I really wanted a girly statement piece.  Next, I will add a cut glass top to protect all of my hardwork!

I hope that this will both inspire and encourage you to try thrifting  (if you haven’t already) and let me know what deals you find.  So what do you think so far? Don’t you agree that pink was the way to go?
