Decorating & Furniture/decorating a little girls' room


My daughter-in-law asked for my help in decorating my grandaughter's room with a "lollipop" theme.
I think she would like a headboard painted perhaps.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.  


Let your imagination run wild.  Lollipop shapes are easy because they're round, and sticks are well... sticks.  You could do some of the following things:

Paint her headboard in Lollipop colors; if she prefers pastels do that, if brights are her preference, use primary colors.

Create "lollipop curtain rods" by having a colored lollipop round on either end of the rod.  Cardboard will work here unless you're industrious enough to use wood.

Round rugs stitched together create a sort of gumball look.  

Create lollipop handles for her dresser.  Fill her closet with colorful (lollipop colors) hangers.   

Make ordinary drapes special by "hand painting" lollipops on solid white drapes.  Use fabric paint available at your local craft store.  Create a matching bedspread, but make one HUGE lollipop running from head to toe.

Create wall art with:  shadow box filled with actual lollipops; decoupaged lollipop wrappers on a canvas; OR a poster/print of balloons.

That should give you a start.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
