Hi there Creative Home readers! We’re back to share a sneak peek of my 4-year old daughter’s new purple-accented room reveal– specifically how to trim out the closet and get rid of bulky doors. (Note: We are usually fans of closet doors, but for my little one, this solution is much easier for her.)
My sweet neighbor generously gave me 20′ of pink wooden scallop trim because she knew I would “do something creative with it” but alas, it has sat on the floor of my garage for nearly 2 years. When my daughter asked if we could paint her room purple, (transitioning from a toddler room to a “big girl” room) I knew it was time to dust these suckers off and get to work!
Psst! If you don’t have an amazing neighbor like mine, you can make your own scallop trim with a jigsaw + 6×8″ wood; just trace 6″ half circles, leave 2″ clearance from the top of the wood and cut. Easy easy! My daughter’s closet is roughly 3′, so I cut the existing scallop to size, just enough to squeeze into the door frame. I then painted over the pink and screwed 3 L brackets into place.
Now that the trim was in place, it was time to snag a tension rod ($6 at Walmart) and pair it with Rachel Ashwell’s sheer ruffle curtain panels, (clearance at Target, $15.) Here are a few shots of the trim after the project was completed:
She’s 4, so her closet also acts as a storage area for toys, non-clothes items and little messes that I don’t want seen all the time. Just like shutting the door, you can simply pull the curtains together and “close” them:
Here’s a closer shot for you to see just how cute the freshly painted scallop looks!
Here’s a few just-for-fun shots so you can see some of the purple coming out. It still needs accessories, and the bed will be painted purple with chalky paint, (stay tuned!) but for now we are both loving it! 🙂
If you’re reading this, promise us you’ll come back to our site for the full bedroom reveal…. especially once the sun stays out more than a few minutes! 😉 Thanks for reading, and be sure to follow along on FB or Insta. xoxo
