I also completed Alanna's bedroom! It looks fabulous, if I do say so myself! I went a little crazy but she is completely ecstatic over the results. She has since added her own flourishes, like a pillow she made herself at her aunts and various stuffed animals and toys. And, she has made ENORMOUS use of the seat I refashioned from my old chest. She stuffed it full of things. And I gotta say, Im really proud of how well she has maintained her room. She has even started doing her own laundry!!! My baby girl is growing up! Here are some really horrible pictures I have yet to update....
|her little reading corner|
|her pillow she made herself! and my own handy work on the walls ( there is now a third horizontal matte with the first, for a set of 3)|
|her desk, shelf and nightstand|
|her dresser is painted with chalboard paint, and recently sports ribbon drawer pools in hot pink and silver|
|every girl needs a monogram!!|
|this lamp replaces the little pink one she had|
|the sheer fabric is silver sequins. nice and shimmery!|
I had really planned on posting more often, I wanted to do Christmas in July, and share some fun things to do over the summer, but I just couldn't find enough time (or energy!) to do a decent post.
But, Im committing myself to posting as much as possible before my vacation starts. Ive got a lot planned, and have been planning my holiday crafting already. Look for some back to school ideas over the next couple of days! I cant wait to get started!!
