Some little views of our girls’ rooms today. I’m cleaning our messy house today and I thought I’d share some glimpses that make me happy…even when the rest of the house is a DISASTER :) You can see more of our middle daughter’s room in our DIY for her pallet bed.
My talented sister made that fox scarf for the baby, I want her to make me one but I think she doesn’t think I could pull it off ;)
I made this mobile for the baby’s room and it’s still a work in progress even though I made it over a year ago – I keep tweaking it here and there…and I should mention that I don’t hang this over her crib. Those lanterns (from the Target $ section:) ) are kind of heavy and have glass in the panes and I just couldn’t be comfortable because I was worried it might fall. So it’s in the opposite corner.
I made this hanging mobile for my oldest – just for something fun to have in her room. My sister made her a box of origami cranes one year for her birthday and I didn’t want the cranes to get ruined so I hung them on thread.
A painting my Mother in Law painted when Zac was young, Oldest’s first pair of shoes, my tiara from prom court.
I knew that sucker would come in handy some day. ;)
A quick, framed thing I did with some fabric I used for the baby’s quilt to help tie the room together a bit more. A dresser we refinished – originally it was bright red with black crackle finish…yikes. Paid $10 for it at a garage sale – now it’s beautiful! And also attached to studs in the wall. Do you attach your furniture to studs so your kids won’t tip it? We do…scary stuff!
Another beautiful painting from my talented Mother in Law. The glider that I refinished when I was pregnant with our youngest. It used to be light, dated wood and dirty, denim cushions. I painted it the same color as the dresser and recovered the pads with a thick, dark pink fabric. I’ve spent many many nights rocking on that glider and it’s awesome. It was originally priced as $25 but when we hesitated the guy said he’d give it to us for $10 if we took it off his hands :) Deal.
An embroidery I did when I was pregnant with our Middlest.
Yarn letters are sooooo easy. I love the texture they add too. Cozy. :)
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
