Tween Girl Bedroom Makeover
(Excerpt from original post on PennyWiseMama)
Growing up, my parents weren’t much for DIY or home decorating. I didn’t get a matching bedroom set until I was 10, and beyond that, my room never had a theme. My walls were filled with random posters, photos, and drawings, and my dresser was full of knickknacks. It didn’t bother me any, but now that I’m a mom, I’ve realized that I struggle with decorating my own kids’ bedrooms. It doesn’t come naturally to me, which is why I am so thankful for all the inspiration I’ve found online and at my local American Furniture Warehouse!
When American Furniture Warehouse (AFW) reached out and asked to partner with me to makeover my twin girls’ bedrooms, I couldn’t have been more excited. It was the perfect timing, considering that my girls had been begging to update their rooms. Approaching the tween years, they were more than ready to get rid of the furniture and decor that they’d had since they were two.
We spent the better part of a day at AFW, shopping not only for new beds and dressers, but also for decor for their rooms. Both girls were looking for items to give their rooms a simple, yet girly and sophisticated look. We found exactly what we were looking for!
