From Little Girl to Teen Room Reveal

Oh, aren't they cute!

When we built our home 10 years ago, Cheyenne and Natalie were just 6 and 3.  It took some convincing, but Bill finally agreed to let me "decorate" the girls room (he really liked the basic builders-white walls.)  So with the help of my great sister, sister-in-law, and mom, we stamped all around the room a cute sunflower, yellow and purple border.  They had yellow and purple comforters, too, on their bunkbeds.  It was such a cute room!  So when they were about 12 and 9, they started deciding maybe the sunflowers weren't so cute anymore so we slowly started updating their room a little here and a little there. 

Here is what their room looked like before the redo:

And now, the teenager room, pretty much designed all by Cheyenne and Natalie (with just a little guidance from Mom.)
They decided they didn't like sharing a queen size bed and needed their own. 
Cheyenne's corner with a new light, that she loves.  (Colts shrine will be on the right wall, I'm told.)
Had to buy a new cheapo bookshelf, because Bill DID NOT want the nice bookshelf painted.
Natalie's bed.  I shortened the curtains from the old room so they were window length instead of almost floor length.
Probably need to repaint the dresser (from Chloe and Maddie's room) since it's cream and the rest of the trim and stuff is white.  Also need updated knobs, but that's a job for later.
View from the other end of the room.  So that's it.  The girls LOVE it, and it took a lot of work to get them to both agree on colors and everything.  Cheyenne wishes it were a little more turquoise, but at least I convinced her of no turquoise walls.  I'll have several more posts detailing what I actually did to make this all happen, so stay tuned.

Very, very cute. The beds look really great in black. Tell Cheyenne to save up for a turquoise rug!

It does look great. I see you even got the curtains hemmed. Good job! Wish you could have seen the girls last night with the "Bigs" cousins. Never saw Natalie laugh so much. I think they had a good time.

I used to share a room with my sister and I remember well the design dilemmas and how we could never agree! It turned out great, they are lucky to have such a fun room! Thanks for linking up to Roomspiration!

Great great job. It is challenging to create a space that represents two different personalities and make it blend but you did this fabulously. So glad you shared it on Motivated Monday at BeColorful
