Whew! It's been a busy time around here. With what, you ask? Well, mainly, Bella's bedroom needed to be totally redecorated. Allow me to set the scene...Our house has 3 bedrooms, though the third may or may not be an actual bedroom depending on which home assessment you look at. It is teeny tiny and does not have a closet (that's why it's sometimes not considered a bedroom). Anywho, this room started out as our home office then morphed into a nursery. It's the perfect size for a crib and changing table. I carefully picked a gender neutral brick red, navy blue and cream color scheme (because the room already had a dark blue carpet). The room was so cozy and warm and dark. Perfect for rocking and nursing. When Bella came along, Joe moved into the second bedroom. Then when Trey came along, Bella bunked in Joe's room. As the kids got older, we felt that it would be good to have a boys room and a girls room. Bella moved back into the nursery and Trey moved in with Joe. Bella has clearly outgrown my Americana obsession with stars, so from top to bottom, her room has been transformed. Most of the artsy ideas came straight from Pinterest....enjoy the pics! They're not great pictures, but you'll get the gist.
Cute little art wall. The stars were red, white and blue...easy change to simple white. I painted and stenciled the plywood, and Bella wrote the words. I love that she help create the art! The letter "B" was made with a combo of puffy paint and Elmer's glue, then mod podeged onto canvas (seriously easy!).
And bookshelves for good measure. Since taking this picture, the corners have been covered to prevent bleeding head injuries and I glued ribbon to edge to spice it up a bit. Like I said, the pictures don't really do the color justice. The walls are painted in Princess Tiara pink, also from the Disney collection. That's what I've been doing. Oh yeah, and recovering the dining room chairs, hosting Thanksgiving, etc,etc.
Bonus!!!! Remember my friend Drew's "monkey tail" beard?? Well, he did it again! This beard is called "Oh no! My beard fell off!" and it's just great...
