if leopards were purple....

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday to all of you. Today's tween room sneak peek happens to be one of my favorite things in the room. It makes me want jump up and down and channel my inner teeny bopper self. I'm talking some headboard action people.
A while back I showed you guys a little teaser after I went fabric shopping....well here is what fun, kid-friendly fabric I found that day for less than $3 a yard.

All I can say is, If leopard's were purple the world would be a much prettier place. I knew instantly after finding this particular fabric the Hubs and I would have to make her a headboard out of it & then this happened on the way home....

 This fun headboard was just screaming to come home with us. It was originally an $800 headboard marked down to $249.00. But after a little negotiating and persuasion with the sales clerk, we were able to pay $229 total including tax. Cha-ching. It never hurts to ask for a discount and I have no shame doing it and in this case I'm sure glad I did. You pair that awesome deal of a $500-600 savings with $10 worth of fabric and BAM...instant tween room ahhhhhhmazingness for not a lot of dough.

As you can see, I was not the only one proud of our find....let's just say we're both money saving nerds. But the end result was priceless and really beautiful. I cannot wait to show you the bed finished next Monday for the big reveal...but until then here is a little peek of purple leopard headboard action.

I could die a happy woman in this bed or now that I think about it....it makes me want to have pillow fight, braid hair, and paint my toes.....sleepover anyone?!

 See you lovelies tomorrow.


  1. You are so cute. And the headboard WAS an amazing steal! Way to go girl! The bed look so.... if I may dare say so... sexy. I can't wait to see the room all done.


I love to hear your thoughts lovelies! Comment away!
