the girls' sparkling room reveal

24 September 2018

Well, the rest of the house is most definitely a work in progress but we're SO excited to have one room mostly checked off the, "finished" list ...


... the girls' bedroom! I've been holding onto these cool BeatSync LED lights since before our move knowing they would be perfect for the kids' rooms and all of the upcoming birthday celebrations. We've been taking the, "a little bit of work on each room at a time" approach but honed in on the girls' room this last week and now I'm dying to fully finish each room since it's so nice to walk into a room that is fully painted with art on the walls and all!

If Julia had her way we would've painted the room neon pink but she's pleased with the light pink paint along with the addition of the BeatSync lights that helped ease any lingering neon-less disappointment. The room had formerly been a pretty dark brown so lightening it up with a less stark paint color + the addition of the twinkles both made an enormous difference.


I love how subtle the lights are and that when turned off - they are all but invisible to the naked eye ...

Aside from painting the room - I painted their bunkbeds and dresser super dark green (almost bordering on black - but I like the contrast) and added touches of gold with the switch plates, mirror, and drawer pulls.


The mirror used to be Simon's grandparents and having met his sweet grandpa I think he'd get a kick out of the additional sparkles surrounding it at the moment.


I used art we had hanging in our Tampa house aside from one girl bandit addition (pictured above) and used a basket to cover the tiny protruding pipe in the fireplace.

They get the coveted giant calendar (for now!) ...


decorated with BeatSync lights.

The boys have called dibs on the multicolored strings of BeatSync LED lights that are ready and waiting for their room to be painted and put together ...


... I told them maybe we could save them for Christmas decorations and they looked at me like I had 5 heads so I think I might let them win this battle.

The cool thing about the Beatsync LED lights is that they are battery powered and can be easily put anywhere. The wire bends easily and can be hung on almost any wall and the most fun part? They have a built in microphone and can blink along with the beat of any music you play which the girls absolutely love. Their exclusive sound technology puts on a different light show each and every time. At night I let them keep a string or two on (the no blink setting) since it's so much less bright than their lamp or a nightlight. They come in both 50 ($5.98) and 100 ($7.97) light strings, can be purchased at Walmart and would be so fun and easy to use for any celebration.


Overall, I wanted the girls to have the girly room they wanted and I was hoping for something light + bright and I think we achieved all of our goals! They had a little playdate yesterday and they stayed playing in there the entire time (the novelty! it will wear off!) and I love how much they love it.


Thank you to BeatSync for motivating us to get our productivity in gear and for sponsoring this post!!

  4. Was the process of painting the bed difficult. Do you think it would look good if I have very light almost white walls.

    1. A little late;) but I assume you know she has done books too? We especially love "The Littlest Familys Big Day".And my daughter loves "Snow White & Rose Red". She's been a bit quiet on her blog lately, I hope she re-opens her shop.
