Room Makeover with Giant Tiger : Katelyn's Room

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 4:58 PM | Claire (Administrator)

My daughter is turning 12 this year, first of all, I cannot even believe where the time went it just flew by.  You know that saying “the days are long but the years are short”? So true. Over the holidays she asked for a big girl room. She made it known that she was over pink and purple for the walls and wanted a more mature room.


The last time we painted her room and decorated it she was 4 so it was really saying goodbye to the little girl years. Once I got over my initial “this is the last year before she becomes a teenager” moment, I started looking around for options. We wanted something that could grow with her in the next two years and that was also cute. Mostly though we wanted something affordable. We decided to go with Giant Tiger. What I loved about getting the items from Giant Tiger, other than the price, was how fast we received them, a day after placing the order some items arrived. 


The Before


The In Between 


And the after.


She loves the bed because in her own words “she always wanted something a little fancy”.  Here is a list of what we chose to make this look


What you’ll need: You’ll need to purchase a box spring separately. We got ours at a local mattress store for $100.


We had the kids do a quick video about the room. My son is a joker, as you can tell, but you might notice how much detail Katelyn gives about the vanity.  Ethan was happy this morning because Katelyn didn’t “hog’ their joint bathroom doing her hair.



Get the Vanity here 

This is a desk that can grow with her and loved the white detailing on side. From a practical aspect it’s good for storing all the supplies she needs to avoid cluttering the top.




Katelyn is a bookworm and the night stands are already stocked with books.  I especially like that they are hidden away. Anything that helps to keep the look and feel of order is my friend. 


To help keep her closet more organized, we purchased two of these Honey Can Do Drawer Chest.  One thing I’ve noticed is that her closet was becoming messy with things scattered everywhere. These will help to keep things organized.

In the whole process of finding the look that we wanted and going through the Giant Tiger site, I realized that they have a lot more products than I even knew of.  We are extremely happy with the service, value, and quality of products.

To brighten up the room we added a bouquet of flowers on the wall.

To pull the room together we added a subtle blue rug to pick up the blues in the other pillows, nicknacks and bedding.  

Here another look at the two rooms! I'm loving this soft clean look of her new room.
