Teenage Girl Bedroom Ideas with Desk Space DIY
Updating a girls room is so much fun--especially when they transition from girl to teen.  This room needed to have desk space and be a much more relaxing haven for moments of alone time.  We incorporated lots of elements and re-did the room on a strict budget!
 This was her room when we first moved in.  After painting the walls white, we filled the walls with diamonds and confetti.  They were so cute and fun for 2 years...but really busy.  I don't think they helped her relax and feel calm...a little too chaotic, right!?

The worst part was peeling the vinyl off the walls.  Don't put vinyl on your walls!  I read everything I could about removing it carefully.  We used a blow dryer and heated up the vinyl before peeling it off.  This worked on SOME of the vinyl we used.  I thought we were in luck and the removal would be a blast.
But, Oh No!  It was disaster!  The white paint, the previous paint and the drywall board peeled off in chunks.  I just sighed, knowing it would be so much more work.
Sherwin-Williams to the rescue!  I used this Shrink-free spackling and patched the wall.  It dries fast and doesn't shrink!  Then sanded smooth and wiped down.
Once the walls were prepped, we were ready to paint.  I knew we wanted a blue shade for a calm oasis.  We picked "Raindrop" by Sherwin-Williams in satin finish.  It looked much bluer than anticipated when I opened the can, but on the walls it looks perfect.
Sherwin-Williams Emerald Paint is a dream!  It is paint and primer--plus stain blocking power in one!  Additionally, it contains anti-microbial agents to keep mold and mildew from growing.  The coverage was amazing and dried perfectly.  After the first coat dried completely, we painted a second coat.
I love blue!  I am so glad my daughter picked the color I wanted!  The other walls in the room we painted with Sherwin-Williams Extra White SW 7006 in satin finish.  
We let the paint dry for a couple weeks...mostly because summer got away from us.  We upgraded the twin bed to a full size and made a bigger bed frame out of materials we had in the garage.
We built a desk out of garage bits and pieces and the building blocks for the room were complete.  The desk was essential for art, sketching, journaling and storage.  Easy to fill the walls with cork boards, canvas paintings and prints.
The blue wall is a perfect backdrop and pops with the white.  It is relaxing and calming.  We also bought a weighted blanket to help reduce anxiety and it works like a charm. 
We kept the diamond light we made a couple years ago.

I love having a room that will transition as she does.

We had such a great experience working with our local Sherwin-Williams store to create this look.  The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable.  I've been back several times since!
