Yesterday I shared a little end table that I refinished for my little girl's room. I was surprised by all the comments I received on that. I guess everyone appreciates some girly details.
I'm finally done with the room so below is what I started with. This room has been blue since before we had kids. I love the blue-grey color and never wanted to change it. I really didn't do much in here except add the new convertible crib and curtains ... and it shows. I know its messy here. That's reality people. You can see the little critter curled up there when we tried it out as a daybed. Pillows on the floor and side rail ... semi-useful but she still ended up on the floor several times as she busted right through that rail.
Time for a new plan.
Here is the room now. The crib front and back are now the headboard and footboard of the full-sized bed. We have much sturdier rails the little beast can't bust through.
The bedding and rug are all Simply Shabby Chic bedding that I purchased at Target long before the tot was remotely ready for a bed.
The pillows are lovely, but our little one wants no part of them. She just adores the Pillow Pet bee (See pic above.) that was a gift from her great-grandmother. These are actually pretty cool. They fold open into a pillow.
I did these same book shelves from Ikea in my other daughters room and they're so awesome I had to do them again. I repainted the dresser a long time ago - for my oldest, in fact. The little trunk was purchased from Target back when they used to do their Global Bazaar events. How I miss those and mourn the loss ...
I also painted this little vanity table last year. The milk glass lamps were a gift from my parents and they're perfect here. That chandelier was once black and I painted it. Its crazy heavy and awkward and I know my husband wishes I would get rid of it but I just can't. My family has had it for years and I actually like it. I've removed the frightening wiring and plan to remove the chain to the ceiling. I'm hoping to use it outdoors one day as a candelabra but for now it will just be decorative here.
The picture is from my favorite Renn Faire vendor. Of course, every princess needs a crown ...
One last thing ... The sides of the crib didn't go to waste. I'll be sharing that project soon.
