This is the awesome desk he built and we painted to match her dresser. I found a picture of one that I liked and he built it WAY prettier than the picture so I won't even bother to post the "idea" pic because it is FAR pale in comparison. :) Also, I had been searching for a chair for her everywhere and finally decided to check out one of the antique stores in Collinsville and found one for $17 and I just need to paint the wood and recover it in a coordinating upholstery, it has the perfect shape and is really sturdy! And to think that most places want around $200 for something like this! I would rather make it my own with some paint and fabric!
The photo board I made to go above her desk..
This was an AWESOME find!!! I really wanted a vintage looking blanket or quilt for the end of the bed and had given up and decided one day that I needed to clean out my linen closets and rearrange everything and when I was pulling out blankets I found the perfect one!! My great grandma always made us little quilts and she had made this one for my baby brother when he was born. It's so perfect in the way it looks and it has such a special meaning to me.
And, finally, what's a room without curtains?! I thought she definitely needed something for her window and I wanted it to match her bed's curtain so I made one for the window, too. This was my very first time to make anything like this and it was super fun! I do think that i need to add some more fabric on the back because when the sun is shining through really bright they are a bit see through.
Whew, I think that's all for this post. This bedroom has definitely made me want to change some more things in my house. So fun!!!
Talk to you soon!
