For my daughter's 10th birthday I surprised her with a mini-makeover on her bedroom. I was able to make the curtains, paint the letters, buy the rug and mirror, and hang everything in a 2-day period. We had already painted the walls peach a year ago, and I had gotten the horse decal from a Groupon.
It all started with the bedspread. My mom got her this awesome "17 Magazine" purple zebra comforter from JC Penny online -- really nice quality I might add. That cinched the rest of the color palette for me, and this is what I came up with...
The DIY curtains were the biggest project which you can read about here. They really transform the room.
When she was a baby I got letters to spell her name on the wall but she has grown out of the color pink, so I updated them with spray paint! Read about it here.
I hung a cheapie mirror from WalMart on her closet door with super strong 10# mounting tape (pictured). Every girl needs a full length mirror.

And finally a coordinating fuzzy rug next to her bed pulled the whole thing together. Also from WalMart. It was a one stop shopping kind of makeover.
