Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received curtains from Eclipse Curtains for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
We recently decided to do a mini makeover to Little Miss’s room. She needed more storage and we wanted to make it more of a big girl room. We started by painting the walls a white with a hint of gray. I replaced her old dresser with an armoire we had in the basement. I painted it a pale blue and replaced the metal door panels with white fabric.
My husband made a nightstand out of pallets and we purchased new bedding. I made some throw pillows and embroidered Little Miss’s monogram and name on them. I also framed a little A for above her bed and hung the letters to spell “Dream” on the wall.
I was not a fan of the traditional bi-fold doors on her closet because it didn’t allow full access. So I replaced it with semi sheer curtain panel.
Finally, we hung up some great blackout curtains from Eclipse. It’s hard for Little Miss to sleep when there’s a lot of light coming in through the window.
To her, light=playtime, not bedtime! So, daylight savings time can make bedtime rough. Thankfully, Eclipse Curtains block over 99% of intrusive light, reduce unwanted noise, and help keep in the heat in during the colder months as well as keep the room cool during the summer months.
I loved the feminine touch of the ruffles on the Reese curtains and the back of the panels do a great job of blocking out light.
I really like that these curtains make her roomer darker without feeling like a dungeon. This is a picture of the room with the curtains open:
And here is one of the room, at 11:45 am, with the curtains closed:
They really make a huge difference! I love that they help block out heat as well since A’s room faces east and can get pretty warm in the summer. They’re beautiful and functional at the same time. Eclipse curtains are available in both traditional and contemporary designs. They even have a fun chevron print that I plan on putting in the little boys’ room. You can find Eclipse curtains on Amazon and at Walmart and Target.
A thinks her new room is super pretty and it functions much better now too! And bedtime has been going better so that’s a huge bonus!Belinda is a wife, mom, blogger, and Brand Ambassador.
