Keller Beasley didn’t like her bland bedroom, so her family surprised her on her sixth birthday with the pink room she wanted.

Before the makeover, her bedroom had buttercream walls and a sage green bedspread.

“It wasn’t a little girl’s room. Now, it truly is a little girl’s room,” mom Karen Beasley said.

What’s your favorite part of your room?

“The TV!” Keller said immediately. But she also loves the Bratz beads that hang in her doorway, she said, and of course, the pink wall color she chose from color samples.

Where did you purchase the items in your room?

  • Muted fuschia pink paint — Lowe’s

  • Wall stickers — Linens ’N Things

  • “Cotton Candy” duvet — Bed Bath & Beyond

  • Oversized neck pillows — Sears

    What are some things you did yourself?

    Karen Beasley threaded a feather boa through her daughter’s vanity mirror to give it a feather border, and also placed feathers over rose borders on one of Keller’s lamps. She also painted a two-dimensional childlike smiling butterfly for the room. Keller’s dad painted the walls, and Karen could only check in periodically because the “pink glow” gave her a headache.

    What are your future plans for the room?

    The Beasleys recently decided to move, so they are prepared to re-create their daughter’s room in their new home in Decatur. The only tricky part is figuring out how to remove the circle and flower wall stickers from Keller’s walls when they leave.
