Alright, the wait is over! And by wait, I really mean my rambling about this room reveal is officially coming to an end because I’m happy to finally share all of the finished details of the DIY girls room makeover that we’ve been working on with Valspar these last few weeks.

I’m really in love with the how much brighter and more mature the space looks, while still being colorful with playful touches here and there that are fitting for a little girl. I mean, how cute are those little Toms next to the bed?! I don’t have baby fever or anything you guys..

This project is perfect for a quick weekend update because you don’t need to go full-force on a whole room, it’s more like a quick, table-runner version of an accent wall by just highlighting a small section and leaving the rest of the color up-to the pretty accessories.

With the holidays coming up, I figured I should go ahead and jump on the gift guide bandwagon early since, if you’re like me, you like to pre-pre-pre plan how to give the perfect gift way in advance. Plus this gives me a great excuse to push my sugar-high tendencies and my love for gold and white on you through my Giftry lists. But let’s be honest, I also need to help my Mom and Dad know what I want for Christmas subliminally through my blog posts, so here we go…
