Update on Lacey’s Room

Today I’m being featured at Southern Hospitality.  I’m “jump up and down” excited. When Rhoda contacted me about Feature Friday I was THRILLED.  I’ve been reading her blog forever so it is such an honor. Thanks, Rhoda!

When I revealed Lacey’s toy nook I promised that I would share more pictures of her big girl room.  Well, it just isn’t quite there yet.  Instead of her whole room I’ll show you her window treatments.

Why have one when you can have three?  Plantation shutters, exteriorturnedinterior shutters, and a valance.   The plantation shutters came with the house when we bought it.  I purchased the exterior shutters online.  They are paintable and are composite (not real wood).  They were around $30. I just didn’t want wood shutters over her bed in case they came off the wall while she is jumping on her bed sleeping.  I painted them the same pink as her accent wall.  That pink is also in the valance which is from PB Kids.  A good tip for you –  If you like a certain”theme” from PB Kids you can save money by buying a less expensive item like the valance.  Pair it with a sham or pillow from the set instead of spending so much on the whole bedding ensemble.   You can keep the bedding simple and use PB Kids accents.   
TGIF! 🙂

  7. Hi Erin! Congrats on your Blog! Where in the world did you find plantation shutters for $30?

  8. The exterior shutters were $30 – the plantation shutters came with the house. 🙂

  9. Love your house! Found you via Rhoda as well! As others have posted, I would love to know the color & manuf. of your livingroom Taupe!!! I have been testing different Taupe/Greige paint colors and everything is either too dark, or too gray, never right and yours looks perfect! Fabulous find, please share! 🙂

  10. Congratulations on the feature! Rhoda’s readers are the best! Your home is so wonderful- I love what you’ve done!

  11. The paint is Surrey Beige by Glidden. Thanks for the comments. 🙂 🙂

  13. Hi, just found this room during a google search. Can you post (here in the comments section) where you purchased the shutters that you painted pink?

  14. Would you also mind posting how you attached the exterior shutters to the wall? I’m a DIY novice so I need tons of tips. Thanks!

    • The fact that they are composite makes them really lightweight! They really weigh less than a lot of framed pictures. I just used skinny nails that you would use for any artwork. However, I’d also consider Command adhesive strips! Hope that helps! 🙂

  15. This is just stunning…The window treatment in the room is pleasant….like the feature.
