Tween Room makeover: Black, White, and Purple

My daughter said NO MORE PINK. She is almost ten and wanted a TWEEN room.  This was the color palette my daughter chose. This was our FIRST step of the makeover.

Finished room PICS here (minus the drapes!):




Paint color: Sherwin Wlliams HGTV at Lowe's Voilet Cache

My daughter says "no more pink"! I love her current Pink Beach room, but she's ready for a bedroom makeover. Here are a few inspiration pics we found on Pinterest--notice they all have a black and white theme:

AND NOW TIME TO SHOP!! ... and make our own custom bedroom...

I was fortunate--I found this great duvet cover and shams on clearance!!

Most tweens are opting for teal this season but we are going purple!  I found this throw pillow (JCPenney) and sheets (Macy's) at the mall.

To blend in the lighter and darker shades of purple, I ordered a monogrammed pillowcase from Etsy. 

Drawer knobs from Etsy (replaced top two knobs on chest):

Light switch plate and outlet covers also from Etsy:
To soften the room, I am going with white  ruffled drapes from Target:

Purple jewelry box from PBTeen:

Fabric storage bins that match her comforter:

And a great black and white bath towel with her name in a purple font:

Check out this super cute garbage can I found at Walmart!  It's black with white polka dots, with a silver rim!

Also from Walmart, a hook shelf to hang her towel and jewelry along with a picture frame.

I've been picking up accessories at a   variety of places, such as Old-Tyme Pottery and Marshall's!


My shopping list:
  • Duvet cover (PB Teen)
  • Fabric storage bins (PB Teen)
  • Throw pillows (JCP and Etsy)
  • Monogrammed bath towel (PB Teen)
  • New sheets (Macy's)
  • Drapes (Target)

Teen Beach 2 Dance Party at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon

On Friday, the kids and I headed to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park. We were surprised to find REAL ACTORS from "Teen Beach 2" on site for special event. (This special appearance was held in conjunction with Magic Kingdom being opened for 24 straight hours as a kickoff to summer!)

All summer long visitors can participate in a Teen Beach 2 party!  

Water balloon toss games!

Hula hoop competition:

And a dance party!

Teen Beach 2” premieres at 8 p.m. June 26 on Disney Channel.  
Pictured here are characters Mac, Brady, Lela and Tanner. 

My daughter was able to shake hands with Grace Phipps (who plays Lala).

We were not able to get close to Ross Lynch but did snap a photo:

What a fun day!
