This post is long overdue as I’ve had one of my favorite home projects finished up for over a year now. I thought today would be the perfect time to share their room as I was asked to be this week’s feature with #thisishowiwestern on Instagram.
As a mama to two girls, I couldn’t wait for the day that they would get to share a room. Built in best friends, lots of bonding (let’s be real, arguing too), giggles, and fun has been had in this sweet little space and it’s easily my favorite room in the house. This room was previously emmett till essay and when it was time for her to leave the crib, we decided to move the girls in together and turn Paisley’s room into the play room. (post coming soon)
Our home is small and so are the rooms so my main goal was to make it as functional as possible while incorporating their style/personalities within these four walls. Our little ladies are cowgals through and through and it was so much fun putting this area together for them. I wanted it to be a sweet little oasis reflecting what they love and who they are.
We had my cousin “shiplap” the room. We actually used ply board which was SO much cheaper. He cut them into strips, painted them, separated them with quarters, and nailed them to the wall. It was a cheap way to not only brighten the room but add some texture.
We already had Paisley’s nightstand and bed so we just bought the same one for Scout. The lamp was from target several years ago that was also in Paisley’s old room. I’ll try to link as much as I can at the bottom of the post.
The wood dressers were actually what I grew up using and my mom let us have them. I love mixing metals, wood, and shiplap. It’s my favorite combo when it comes to design elements and you can find that style all throughout my home.
If you know me well, you know I love pictures and decorating with them. I feel like it’s what makes your house a home when it comes to design. After all, your space should reflect who lives there. It’s crazy that we took the photo that’s the big canvas two summers ago. My girls are growing too fast!
The bedding I had custom made for my girls. Vintage cowgirl print mixed with denim, sequins, blush, and cow print. Jodi also made coordinating pillows that are so stinking sweet! She’s also made the girls tepee.Their names are from metal letters I bought during an Anthropologie sale years ago and I had them mounted onto those boards to add some dimension.
Cassie with Wanderlust Skulls painted this custom buffalo skull and I love how it ties the main wall in their room together and that it’s also a piece I can use in other spaces if it ends up not working in their future bedroom when they are older.
One of my favorite accents are the floating shelves that display my old Breyer horses I used to play with when I was their age. They are our most played with toys in our home and I love the fun detail they add to this room.
One thing I wanted to do was make this space feel bigger than it is. I utilized every square inch I could and wanted to bring the outside in. I had my friend Donnette not only build the shelves for me but also the fun sheet metal awning. It transformed the room when we hung it up.
These pretty lace curtains are the same ones that hung in Scout’s nursery. I had bought them from Ikea for $4 four years ago. The doorknob tiebacks are from Urban Outfitters. We also had them in the previous room.
I also had these flowers in the nursery and carried them over to this space. They are just felt in a mason jar I bought from Etsy.
We hang our outfits for the next day on this cute little felt palomino. The bow frame was a baby shower gift from one of my friends and we still use it today, we just have several more accessories on it now. :)
If you’ve stuck around this long, thank ya! I loved getting to do this for my girls and honestly, love just hanging out here myself. It’s such a cozy space full of western flair. If you don’t already, follow along with me on insta @the.farmgirl for more home design and a peek into our crazy life.
