A Perfect Pre-Teen Bedroom – Complete with Powerful Inspiration

The last room in our house to get redecorated was my oldest daughters bedroom. A room that was once previously the toy room, my girl put up with alphabet and monkey wall decals for years, bless her.

So when it was time to truly make the room her on, she went bold, just like her own sassy self. Now, the room is painted lime green, perfect for her pre-teen personality. She got new bedding and bedroom accessories to compliment. 

While the room came together beautifully, the walls were still pretty bare. We waited on this final detail, to choose the perfect items and their arrangement. Just last month, I made her a beautiful OVERSIZED cork-board from an old wooden frame and some fabric I picked up to compliment the colours in her room.

Then, on the other feature wall, I had gotten a canvas piece that that is full of inspirational quotes. It’s brightly coloured and complimentary in hues as well. Yet, this canvas print rested on the ledge of her room for months, waiting to be hung once I got something else to go with it.

Then, while at a cheer competition in Kentucky last month, I captured a photo of my daughter that literally takes my breath away. During their routine, this photo of her truly represents her drive, passion, fierceness and determination. You can see it in her body language and in her eyes. This capture is simply perfect. 

It’s this photo that I had made into a 16 x 24 canvas print at Posterjack, the photo crisp and clear – the colours are vividly brilliant. Really, I could not love this canvas print more. Plus, it came ready to hang, even with rubber stoppers on the back corners so it can’t scratch the wall.

Then I had an ‘issue’ – the word quotes canvas I had picked up months ago from a box store – wasn’t ready to hang. I laid the two canvas prints along side each other, and sighed that I’d still have to tackle putting on the hooks and wire onto the other. This meant I had to shop for the hardware, try to position it the same as the other and … oh, what a pain!

I finally completed the work, but it again took days thanks to a busy schedule and little time to shop. They do look fantastic together don’t you think?

While, I do love what I did with the feature wall in my daughters bedroom – I did learn something along the way:

Having a complete piece ready to hang is a wonderful, wonderful thing. With Posterjack, their canvas prints are no hassle, no fuss – delivered to your door with no extra work involved except hammering a nail into the wall. 

If I had predicted the inconvenience I’d go through, in trying to hang the quote canvas from the box store, I would have instead just created and ordered the same one from Posterjack – which I could have done. Plus, in comparison, Posterjack is way better quality in both the image and in how it’s attached to the frame. Huge lesson learned for next time!

Yet that being said, I am happy with my daughters feature wall. I hope she looks at this daily and gets that overwhelming ‘you can do this‘ attitude – because she totally can.
