Next year my daughter is officially going to be a teenager. GASP! I have noticed a dramatic change in her likes and dislikes this past year. She is wanting to change everything to reflect her sense of style and has begged me for months to makeover her bedroom. Her once pretty flowered room is now a huge eyesore to her, and she wants something more fun and exciting.
I’m sure most of you have noticed on my website sidebar the badge displaying that I am a proud member of the More Than Eleven Walmart Moms. Well, Walmart and Rockfish Interactive teamed up and generously offered to makeover my daughter’s room with the fabulous “Your Zone” teen decor. They sent me a $500 GC to go shopping and change out, spice up, and revamp her boring room to something more inspiring.
My daughter FLIPPED OUT when I told her that her room was getting a massive face-lift with the Walmart’s “Your Zone” items. She instantaneously wanted to drag me to Walmart to start the cool shopping spree, but we decided to plan things out first by going to the Walmart.com Your Zone Room Configurator.
The Room Configurator allowed us to create a 3D representation of a room we personally designed with the “Your Zone” products. We mixed and matched rugs, comforters, sheets, pillows, curtains, lamps, wall decor, and furniture. It gave us tons of decorating ideas and once we decided on the final look of the virtual room we could add the products to the Walmart’s shopping list and print it to take to the store.
My daughter didn’t need any major furniture since she already had a fairly new bedroom set, but the Walmart furniture available such as the loft bunk bed, desks, tables, and dressers are amazingly affordable plus appealing. I personally loved the loft bunk bed. Its perfect for smaller rooms and gives extra space underneath to place a desk or other items.
We did end up purchasing
Your Zone Reversible Twin Comforter & Sham Set, Aqua Geo/Iris
My daughter liked the color combination in the Aqua Geo/Iris comforter. PLUS, the comforter is reversible to a solid purple, so its easy to flip it and change out the look.
Your Zone Sheet Set, Iris
The purple color is vibrant and beautiful! The sheets are soft! I washed them before placing them on the bed and they maintained to hold their color. I did not notice any fading.
Your Zone Bed Skirt, Purple Berry
Matches with the Aqua Geo/Iris comforter and Iris sheet set. Great for hiding clutter that is under the bed!
Your Zone Pop of Plush Toss-It Pillow, Purple Berry
The pillow adds a splash of color for the perfect accent! VERY silky soft! Made with faux fur on one side and microsuede on the other.
Your Zone Eyelash Toss-It Pillow, Peacock Plume
Matches with the Aqua Geo/Iris comforter!
Your Zone Pop of Plush Toss-It Pillow, Green Glaze
Your Zone Plush Cozy Throw, Peacock Plume
WOW this faux fur throw is super SUPER soft and plush! Kylie LOVES it! Measures 50” x 60”.
Your Zone Ombre Summersky Window Panel
Your Zone Ombre Iris Window Panel
Kylie’s bedroom window is rather large so we had to purchase two sets of curtains. We mixed and matched them with the color scheme of her other “Your Zone” decor. The curtains are a lightweight crushed satin and freshen up the room with bright and beautiful color. It gave her room the extra pizazz it needed.
Your Zone Bright Solid Shag, Purple Berry
The rug comes in three different sizes. We purchased the 38 x 58. It is made of 100% olefin, and has a stain resistant pile!
Purple Plus Rush Flokati Rug
I did not see this rug being advertised on Walmart.com, but it was available at my local Walmart as a “Your Zone” item. The rug is so soft and feels incredible under your feet. You will just love to sink your toes into it! We used it as an accent rug at the bottom of her bed.
Your Zone High Five Floor Lamp
This lamp is really cool! It has five flexible arms, comes with 5 colored shades and 5 frosted white shades so you can easily change the look, and has a 4-way switch.
Your Zone Switch it Task Lamp, Peacock Plume
The Your Zone Switch it Task Lamp I purchased at my local Walmart is a little different in style than the one featured online. It can be clipped to a table (as shown) or on the bed headboard to give some extra light during reading. The lamp also came with a stand in case you did not want to use the clip.
Your Zone Anywhere Side Table
This is a cute item and great to use for next to the bed. The accent metal table is very easy to assemble! This is another Your Zone item offered at my local Walmart, but currently not available online, so check your Walmart to see what exciting Your Zone products they have in store.
Your Zone big bag lounger, green glaze
I’m still waiting for this item to arrive, so it isn’t in the final makeover picture. The over sized lounger dimensions are 60″ x 48″ x 12″ D (152 x 122 cm x 30 cm) and the product description says its lightweight! The bag would be great to plop in front of the television to watch your favorite movie or to curl up on and read a book.
Your Zone Show and Tack Shelf, Purple Betty
The cork shelf is great for displaying your favorite stuff! Kylie used it to show off her beanie babies. It measures 23” W x 2′ ‘H x 2.5” D and comes with 4 pushpins to tack up notes, drawings, or photos.
Your Zone Pop It Storage Bin, Green Glaze
We purchased the storage bin with the notion to use it as a fashionable laundry catcher. My daughter has a bad habit of throwing her skivvies on the floor and then complain she has nothing to wear. This takes care of the problem and once it is filled she now knows to carry it to the washing machine so I can wash the items. The storage bin is made of 65% Polyester, 35% Cotton, has a metal frame, and measures 24″ H x 15″ W.
I also purchased a few photo frames and a giant clothespin to match her other items.
Video of the room BEFORE the makeover and AFTER…
I purchased all these items for under $500! I still had some money left over and bought her a few other Walmart items that matched her “Your Zone” decor. Her new room is bright, cheerful, and fit for a teenage QUEEN! The whole project was extremely fun and we even got some mother and daughter bonding time in! Thank you Walmart for making her room makeover possible and for the everyday low prices!
