faded pink stencil and canopy ideas

Hi, loves.
After sharing yesterday’s video Stencil Tutorial,
I went at Edyn’s side of the room with a softer, rosier pink.
I also finished and changed the wall with the stencil.
Because Edyn’s headboard will be beneath the “Edyn” wall vinyl,
I decided that the polka dots would work better on the side wall.
I didn’t like the contrast of white polka dots against the pink so I did them in a lighter tone
by adding white to the pink paint that I used for the base.
I absolutely love the softness of the pink.
I can’t wait to finish this room & share it with you!
I’ll be sharing bits here and there as this makeover won’t happen overnight.
Canopies, curtains, pillows, bedding, rag quilts, etc. need to be made
and furniture needs to be found and painted.
(I’m also tackling my office & kitchen makeovers too.)
I want to get started on the headboard & canopy next but I first need to decide on what I want…
I have an antique wrought iron baby crib that I snagged off my mother’s property
(it was being used for a flower bed)
that I might disassemble, paint white, and use to create a headboard.
I may create a tufted fabric headboard.
I {love} both equally and can’t decide!
I think I’m leaning toward the iron because it’s a little shabbier.
I’ll also be making a canopy above Edyn’s bed.
I snagged these ideas off Pinterest & Pottery Barn Kids last night
and thought I’d share them with you…
This flower petal canopy is adorable too though.
I want to make one and share a tutorial either way.
It would be rather simple to make!
I’m thinking linen petals, embellished with tiny crystals.

Love the simplicity of this canopy
and Edyn might be less tempted to rip it down
because nothing will be hanging on the sides.
(Of the three options, it’s my least favorite though.)

Do you have a favorite? 


  1. Hey Jami, I did a canopy a long time ago for my little girl who is now all grown up. I don’t have a tutorial, but it was pretty simple. I got a sheer curtain and mounted a curtain rod high enough on the wall to not be ‘grabable’, then I figured out where I wanted it to drape. I put clear push pins into the ceiling and tied lightweight fishing line between them and wove the curtain through them ending with the last end of the curtain hanging about 12″-18″ from the ceiling. You could do it with a gauzy fabric as well.

  2. It looks very pretty! I love the first canopy too…so I pinned it!

  3. Jami – first, thank you for sharing the giveaway! That is so sweet and SO appreciated! We need all of the help we can get!

    Second, this post made me a little teary-eyed! I wish I was decorating for my little (now big) girls. I can’t wait to see the reveal. I know I’m going to love it. You have the prettiest style! ;)

  4. Hi Jami! I happen to like the third one, but I know you’d make any of them look great!!

    The wall looks fantastic! I like the idea of the last one for the peace of mind you will have. You could add lace and pretty sheers to make that look more shabby. How fun to put fabric rosettes on it too! You know I am just waiting for you to pull the trigger and let me send you some fabrics! You could use them for the rosettes :)

    You did a beautiful job on the walls, Jami! I love that soft, delicate pink. I’m drawn to the first canopy. It’s whimsical, sweet and so feminine. it looks like a little princess bed. So sweet! You have great taste so whichever style you choose will be lovely for your daughter. I can’t wait to see it!

    I love what you did with the pink walls…beautiful!
    I like the sounds of linen petals with crystals. Sounds enchanting,

  8. The wall is so soft and elegant looking that I’d pick #1. I’m working on other rooms in my house, too…and my sewing room will be last in line. But in there will be a bedroom area for my nieces when they stay here. I’m going for a look similar to # 1. After all these years with my boys, doing a girl room is going to be so fun. : )

thank you for taking a minute to write...
