    Princess Bedroom

    Princess Bedroom On a Pauper's Budget

    Any little girl can have her castle even on a small budget. I find the princess theme to be a frilly and fun one that encourages girls to be feminine.

    Even better is that it's so popular, pieces can be found everywhere....the thrift stores, yard sales, dollar stores and on discount aisles of other places. It's not hard to have luxury on a small budget with these bedroom theme!

    My daughter had a girly girl room-I just loved that princess feel. Yet just recently we updated it to reflect her current tastes. It's just not fair!

     I guess some of them need to corral the world rather than rule it, LOL!

    Re: Princess Bedroom

     The lastest additions to my daughter's princess and floral themed room:

    I found some letter wall stickers at The Dollar Tree. The design is pink jewels with the letters done inside. I spelled her name above her bed and added an A jewel on the footboard of her pink Dora toddler bed.

    Also at the Dollar Tree were Disney princess window clings. I applied her favorite character, Cinderella, in the corner of her vanity mirror. Two more princesses were applied to the glass doors (one on each) of the TV stand that she uses for shelving. The remainder were put on her window along with the jewels and hearts.

    I bought discounted Disney princess valentine cards at Walgreens. The box had a bonus princess poster. We hung this over the vanity. Our interior doors have a design of two small squares at the top and then long panels beneath. I taped a princess card in each small square of her bedroom and closet doors. I used the heart stickers as a cascade down the longer panels.

    At a salvage store I found a Disney princess calender. I will remove the picture pages and hunt down scraps of ribbons, lace and the like to make our own borders for them to hang. I can swap these out to make seasonal decorations of her room.

    Total cost:  $3.90

     

    For those who have not followed my floral princess creation on a budget, here is a recap of what is already in the room:

    The furniture is a Dora toddler bed given to us by a friend, my old dresser and nightstand set, my oldest daughter's white iron vanity which was given to us by my cousin. two sparkle pink plastic drawer systems bought a couple of years ago at Family Dollar and a TV stand given to us by a neighbor. 

    The bedding is pink sheets I found on discount at Walmart last year, a pink blanket we have had for some time covered with a fleece princess blanket that was a gift to our daughter.

    I looped a pink floral vine that I bought at The Dollar Tree around the mirror of the vanity. A pink valentine bear that Mom gave my daughter is hanging on there along with a lavender sachet. One of the plastic drawer sets is next to this with a princess jewelry box that was a Christmas gift from my brother.

    Over the TV stand is a white framed picture of Belle that I bought at a thrift store for a quarter.

    I put a pink vase with a pink and white floral arrangement in it on the nightstand. The vase and flowers came from The Dollar Tree.

    To wrap up the whole feminine theme are her kitchen and doll toys. She has the pink and white Little Tikes table, kitchen and nursery sets. These all came from the thrift store and were also very cheap.

    A castle worthy of a princess on a budget we like.

    Brandy thats sounds pretty nice,we girls never had that we were pretty much cramped quarters but mom bought cute sheets like lavender flowers and ruffled and lace curtains for the window three girls to a 3 bedroom house did hurt but you get what you can afford at the time plus I was gone half the time working but love lavender sheets to this day we all felt likw a princess mom made sure of that...

    I guess if I had adopted a girl young enough at the time she would have had that but my necice her in washington aburne area she has all the princess stuff coming out of her ears so what you got from the dollar tree is better...

    I got a pink dream room when I was a kid but I was only child of working parents for thirteen years before my brother was born.
