  • Pink bandannas for the valances. Add a picket fence for a border - make it pale pink. Paint a cow and put a pink ribbon holding the cow bell. Etc. Or you can use purple.

  • Maybe paint the wall itself pink or lavender and then put wall decals of farm animals on it? We did our DDs nursery in butterflies and in it had a garden where a white picket fence ran along the baseboard and butterflies flew around it. We also attached daisies to the fencing - maybe go to Pottery Barn kids for some ideas?

  • Play up the features a girl typically likes, flowers, white picket fence, butterflies, birds. Then add the animals and paint in colors that she likes. Cute gingham curtains would be a nice touch too.

  • well farms have plants, so maybe put alot of flowers instead of corn and other crops. you could also do red/white gingham for curtains and use bows to tie them to the rod instead of a pocket

  • i was considering painting like a cow and instead of the normal colors paint it with pink spots instead of the black lol but i dont know if that would look right.

  • Pink John Deere is VERY popular.

    Also, I use to make bows with a Red background and the cutest cartoon farm animals. Something like that would be so CUTE!!

    I would try to incorporable lace any where you can. For Example, a throw made of red bandannas with a white lace edging. Maybe a white eyelet type fabric for the curtains. They go great with a country or farm scene.

    Pigs and cows can easily be "girly-fied" pigs are already PINK! And add a bow to any cow and she is instantly cute!!

  • Red and white check curtains, but with lace borders and/or lace layers between the drapes.

  • Instead give the cow a pink bow and pretty eyelashes.
