A room for our big girl

Kate has been settled in her new big girl room for a couple months now and it's finally close to being complete! I went for a super simple shabby chic look all while making it a perfect place for a little girl to play and let her imagination go wild.

A trundle bed complete with the Shabby Chic bedding by Rachel Ashwell from Target
and of course her family of pigs.

Kate's reading area. The kid is a book worm. 
I especially love the bookcase. It was my grandpa Marshall's moms.
We painted it white, can't believe how perfect it is in her room. 
I still need to fill all the frames and add a couple more touches but we're getting there.

Her little couch pulls out into a bed which Kate thinks is super cool!

The other side of the room has a toy box that is filled with all her favorite toys along with her rocking pig.

The Details

We had a custom window shade made for her room which has a built in black out shade.
Very simple and girly.

A sweet piece I found at Home Goods

Bought an extra pillow sham that goes with her bedding, cut it up, assembled and added glass knobs to match the ones on her closet doors.

Ordered these from this Etsy shop

I'm looking for something to go over her bed and a TV for the wall and then it will be complete! 
One of my favorite things is snuggling in her bed and reading stories together. It's so peaceful.
I also love that as I look around her room I am reminded of so many loved ones from things they either gave her or have passed down to us.
The best part of all is how much she loves it and will sit and play in there for hours. 

This is what her room looked like before when it was our office.

Our little house is complete!!!
