McKenzie's "Tween" Room

McKenzie likes to remind me every other day that she is 8 1/2 soon to be 9 in July. She is going to be a "tween" very soon. That is the stage between little girl and teenager. I can't believe it has been 6 years since I decorated her "big girl" room. So we decided that it was time to give her room an update.
Santa brought McKenzie a new pink comforter and a cool new chair. Santa found these at Pottery Barn Teen. I still love the lime swirly fabric from her old room and decided to keep since it goes great with the pink. Granny made these awnings for the windows and dust ruffle for the old house and they worked well at the new house...thank goodness! I kept a few pillows from the old decor. I love the monogram pillow Granny made. McKenzie had a furry hot pink rug by the bed, but I felt it was too much pink in there, so I found this cute rug on sale after Christmas at PB Teen.

It really brightens up the room and looks great with the furlicious butterfly chair. I would like to find a zebra stripe lamp shade for the bedside table lamp. That would be something unexpected in the room.

Before we moved back in October, David found this great furniture from I love the desk and dresser. They look very similiar to more expensive furniture we had seen in PB Kids. The pieces look great with her iron bed we purchased six years ago. We also had to purchase a new lighting fixture for the room and found this dainty little iron chandlier.

Her room is smaller than her old room, so there was no room for her dollhouse bookcase in the bedroom, but there is a neat space perfect for it right outside her bedroom door.

I like the way it looks here.
