Shared Girls Room Reveal with Wayfair Canada




It's finally here, the Shared Girls Room Reveal! 
Back in November, I shared a blog post in partnership with Wayfair Canada of my vision for this room and explained how I had been in the process of making over this room for over a year! 

You can see the full Inspo post HERE.

We've been in this house for 3 years now {time flies!} and I had plans to have this room updated long before now, but life kept getting in the way as it tends to do haha
Now that it's done, the girls are so happy with their shared room and spend majority of their time up there together, which makes me one happy mama! 


This is an official BEFORE photo from the Realtor.ca listing of our home when it was for sale 3 years ago.  
It was painted green and had a huge bunk bed that made the space seem very small but I saw the potential! 
What you can't see from this BEFORE photo is this awful wood shelf that was in the right hand corner of the room that took me 2 hours to remove and patch haha.




Since there needed to be two beds in the room I wanted to make sure we chose a very neutral colour that would make the room feel light and airy and appear bigger as a result.
We used Home Hardware's Beauti-Tone Designer Line in the colour "Milk Moustache"
which my friend Bethany of This Little Estate had used in a project that I had seen and absolutely loved.





The girls wanted their room to feel "girly" so as soon as I saw this pink ruffle bedding at Wayfair Canada I knew this would add the perfect touch of "girliness" { if that's even a word haha} I feel like because we went so neutral with the walls we could get away with bedding that was so pink haha
The beds are Matheny Panel Bed's, also from Wayfair Canada, and were at amazing prize points compared to other similar beds I found.


I picked up this Bohemian Wall hanging from HomeSense Canada as a last minute finishing touch.
It was on clearance and in my opinion, completes the room and adds some fun bohemian flair. 
The mid century modern bed side table was given to me by my grandmother and is a very special piece in this room.




Since our house is so small {1000 sq. ft for five of us} we decided to take out the closet to make a dedicated homework area the girls could use. 
We purchased a standing mirror from Ikea with storage space that the girls could hang their dresses on behind and the rest of their clothes go in a shared dresser.
The desk was another clearance find from HomeSense Canada and the gorgeous pink chair is from WayFair Canada. The legs look like they are wood but they are metal for easy gliding and better durability. I love that it is so aesthetically pleasing and super comfortable.
The book shelves were from a DIY project I did years ago with Ikea Spice Racks and the gorgeous Llama prints are custom made from my favourite local artist Leah Strattsma of Little Lief Creative
I use her for all of my custom art in my home - you can check out her art HERE.


BEFORE 


AFTER


When we first walked through the house I fell in love with this little area in the girls room that they refer to as their "stage". 
It's the perfect area to make their room feel like their own little living space, which is much needed in a house as small as ours with so many people. 
We created this sort of makeshift built in using a dresser and storage cubes from Ikea.
The wicker baskets I found at a store called Solutions on clearance as well.
The house book shelf was purchased originally as a doll house a couple years back from Ikea, and now makes the perfect little book shelf.
The vintage car piggy bank and little wicker doll on top of the dresser also belonged to my grandparents that gave me the mid century modern night stand.
I love that there is a mix of new and old in this room.

Next week on the blog, I'll be sharing a full cost breakdown of the room.


A big thank you to Wayfair Canada, Little Lief Creative for partnering wit me on this room reveal and AMP Studios for capturing the room so beautifully.
