Rachel's Grown Up Room Redo

Since I have come to the conclusion that winter will never end, I have a desperate need to find my happy place. Since my happy place involves decorating, I figured I could find some rooms that needed redecorating, bwahahahaha!!! Rachel got her own room about 2 years ago, when Alayna moved in with Emma. We painted Rachel's walls a bright blue, and a lime green color. She picked them out, not me. I was able to get her comforter set on clearance at JCPenney's, and also had a gift card to use, so I think I shelled out $10 for it! Of course I didn't take a before pic of her room, but it was kind of a hodge podge of furniture and stuffed animals, and everything she has kept over the last 2 years. I spent a couple days looking at kids bedrooms online at HGTV to get some ideas, and this is what I came up with!
The swaggy thing I got at Crafts Direct for $8, the hooks were $2 a piece. The two pics on the side wall are actually box tops that have the same colors as her room, I got them for .50 cents a piece at the discount craft store. The cube nightstand with the fabric cubes I got at Target, for $25. The one on the other side of her bed I found at a garage sale for $2.
I LOVE her lamp! It's an old antique style lap that I have had for years. I bought some cheap flowers at the craft store, and hot glued them on.

I moved her dresser into the corner, to free up some space and hung some paper lanterns, dragonflies and a tissue paper pom pom above it.
I love, love, love how it turned out, and so does she! She says she feels so grown up now, and of course she says she has to keep it spotless. Ya, we'll see how long that one lasts!!

I love how you used the aqua as the focal wall- you see aqua with coral pink a lot, but not green- it looks fabulous!
