Fit for a Princess

Guess what we did Mother's Day morning . . .

Princess hasn't had a room fit for a Princess since she was 1. Way back then, the Lizard King and I decorated her "nursery". . . a room she never slept in. From the start, we co-slept. I still regret investing in the crib instead of the glider rocker. I really would have loved the glider rocker. The crib did look pretty though.

Anyway, we sold our home in Georgia and Princess' room along with it. In all of our rentals, Princess hasn't had her own room. It just wasn't necessary, because she still sleeps with us. When we bought our house, we knew that Princess would eventually need a room of her own.

Every once in a while she talks about maybe sleeping in her room. She's had a sleepover in it, but hasn't slept on her own. The Lizard King and I decided it was time to give her a room that she will love. I asked Princess if she would let us decorate it and make it a surprise for her. She thought that was a fabulous idea. Her only request was that she help with the painting.

LK found the paint on the return shelf at Depot. What a find!

Here is after painting, but before decorating . . .

. . . and the reveal.

Princess' name is in white wooden letters behind the PRINCESS.

This flower is for measuring how tall Princess grows.

I think she loves it! And it might be time to schedule another sleepover.


  1. Oh, what fun! Princess is a very lucky Princess. :P Her room is beautiful. Way to go Shady and Lizard King. And yeah, what a great find with the paint. Love the two tones.

    1. Awww . . . thanks, Sheri! It was so much fun to create for her. I think it was the best part of my Mother's Day!

  2. The room is fit for a Princess. Love it especially the flowers.

    1. Aren't the flowers fun, Secret Mom? I was afraid of not having enough, but it turns out I've got a whole pack that I didn't open. I hear the playroom calling for some floral fun! ;)
