Dream With Some Bling!

Recently I shared with you my daughters makeover with her bed here.



  I came across a super cute gem quote with lettering decals!



 "Dream" with some bling! I knew this was a perfect finishing touch for her new bed makeover!




    She helps me with several of my craft projects and, of course, she had to oversee this one to the end! I let her be completely hands on with this project, down to the gems being placed on with a stencil!


This project only took about twenty minutes from start to finish!
We added the quote, making sure to measure and center it with the headboard.

  Next, I smoothed out the lettering, making sure there were no air bubbles trapped under the decal. The great thing is, if you do not like the location if the decals, they are repositionable!
Then we measured to ensure that we had everything centered to the left and right of the wording. I taped the stencil on each side to keep it from moving.
I then let my little helper have fun adding the self adhesive
 gems! She was great at following the stencil.

Here is a pic of the "Dream" with Some "Bling" headboard!
 This made a perfect finish to her new bed makeover. She is super happy with it and, of course, that makes me super happy to watch her be so excited.

  1. Hey Nicole!
    I just stopped by to return the love...and thank you for your visit and for following.

  2. This is cute--reminds me of my 13 year old daughters room...fushia walls and zebra print bedding. The bed looks great with the blingy sticker :)

    1. Thank you! My daughter is eight and she is in love with zebra print right now!

  3. Aw you're such a sweet mum! I can see why your daughter loves it!

  4. Morning Nicole,
    That is just darling. Yall really did a great job on that.........bet your daughter is loving that new look.

    Thanks for coming by to visit and for becoming a follower, look forward to getting to know you better.
    That potato salad recipe sounds might good too. Will have
    to try that out sometime soon.

    Blessings, Nellie

  5. Great job, Nicole! I love that you included your daughter in the process. Some people prefer to do it all themselves, but I feel that allowing the child some hands-on involvement will give them more pride in their room. Of course, that will sail out the window once they are teenagers, but you can enjoy it for now!

    So glad you stopped by my blog & introduced yourself & started following. I am now following you as well, and I will also be adding you to my blog roll!

    Have a wonderful day!
