While I was working on our Big Girl Room Makeover post I wanted to make sure and provide a source list and stay accountable to my budget goals for the room. Spoiler alert, I was not only able to stay within the budget I had, but I came in lower than expected. You know what that means, more budget to spend on other fun projects.
If you saw the original moodboard post I highlighted most of my sources, for memories sake I will re-post them here:

I am going to take this opportunity to interject that we do have a bedtime routine and we are pretty diligent about sticking to it ( mainly for our own sanity). He is just a little more high energy than the rest of us and wakes up every morning on a mission. Most nights at bedtime we hear our daughter screaming for us to come upstairs and remove him from her bed. Or he kindly decides to body slam her first thing in the morning. All this being said, her room quickly moved to the top of the list of priority projects. Well, that and a set of black out curtains for our sons room.
