Tween Girls Room Makeover!
My daughter is a tweenybopper now, so it was time to give her bedroom a makeover.
This is the finished room! I handmade and replaced all of the baseboards with taller ones and added crown molding using the same wood. I stripped the windows and cut two kinds of molding to frame them and give them a cute picture frame look. My wife tailored curtains we bought to fit into the window frames to make the room look bigger too. My daughter loves how it turned out!
I painted a chalkboard onto the wall and then framed it. It has been a huge hit with her and her friends.
Here's a look at the new curtains. My wife bought white and pink curtains from IKEA Japan and sewed them together.
I made this shelf out of planks of pine wood and attached it to the back of her headboard.
Here's a look at the window frame.

It's still kind of difficult to buy paint in Japan. More and more colors and brands come along every year, but there's not a huge variety of them.
I took this curtains down and then realized I didn't take any "before" pictures.
