Miss V’s Princess Tiana Room Makeover

Hi Again!

I haven’t finished this project, but was so excited I thought I’d give you a preview.

To start, Miss V has her own big-girl converted toddler bed.  It’s been a major challenge to get her to stay in it.  After 3 nights of no sleep, I was desperate to come up with a solution.  Then my Dad suggested making it a place she would want to stay in.  Hmm…  Miss V loves Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog.  So, I set out to Ikea.

Normally, I’d analyze sales, look at all options available, and research my heart out before making a purchase.  But, today I was delirious, and so was my credit card!

Ikea has these great bed canopy leaves, perfect for a Princess and the Frog theme, or even Tinker Bell.

Ikea Lova Bed Canopy,  $14.99 each

I also found these pillows which matched the theme perfectly-

Ikea Ullkaktus Cushion, $3.99 each

I also found this rug, which would have matched and given a “grassy” feel but decided not to purchase at last second.  Maybe I’ll still get it it, I haven’t decided.

Ikea Hampen Rug, $9.99


Then it was off to JoAnn Fabrics, where I picked up some glitter fabric spray paint for $6.99-


So, what do we have so far?


I still need to mount the leaves and do the glitter spray.  I might even Ebay a Princess Tiana crib sheet.


The hope is that Miss V will look up and see this-


And feel comfortable in her new converted toddler bed.


The last two nights have resulted in much more sleep, and I’ll keep you updated as the room comes together!
