Sofia's Girly Bedroom

Poor Sofi Sue.  She loves Henry so much and would willingly be roommates with him forever.  Henry, on the other hand, wants privacy.  He wants a room that he can go into, close the door, and get away from a little sister who wants to be next to him at all times.  So we're moving Sofia out into the tiny third room.  Notice I don't call it a bedroom because the village does not consider it one.  It has no closet and is only a little over 7 feet by 8 feet.

Currently the Guest Room/Tim's Office before we removed the carpet and refinished the wood floors.

The room needs a lot of work before Sofia can move in. 
  1. Remove popcorn ceiling.
  2. Paint walls and faux wood paneling.
  3. Paint ceiling.
  4. Revamp light fixture.
  5. Build loft bed.
  6. Install bookshelves.
  7. Create closet area under loft.
  8. Make rug and curtain for loft. 
  9. Decorate!
Here's a sneak peak of the only thing I've begun for the pink and purple (Sofia's choice) girly Xanadu to come:


  1. /that rug is adorable Molly. Are you sure the popcorn ceiling is asbestos-free?

  2. nope, not sure at all. i wonder if there's any way to find out for under $100. i'm not hiring another asbestos tester to come out to the house, that was way too expensive!

  3. I need to know more about this rug. How are you doing this? TELL ME EVERYTHING!!!
