When my daughter, Gwenna, turned 2 I decided that I wanted to redecorate her room. I really didn't need to because it was pretty as it was, (pink and green shabby chic) but I began to see that she wasn't the soft girly- girl type, and I wanted her to have a room that reflected her personality and would last. I must admit, that the prospect of decorating again appealed to me because it is just plain fun!
|I was given a small wing chair that I had reupholstered in these fabrics:|
Cream for the main body of the chair, the fun bird fabric for the seat cushion,
and an aqua piping (to highlight the curve of the chair and hide dirt).
|The rug (which I already owned), curtains and chair are so pretty together and I|
like that they don't match but contain the same colors.
|I wanted to carry the same inspiration fabric that is on the curtains to the opposite|
side of the room on the headboard for consistency. I am making do
with these side tables now, but I am on the hunt for a matching pair that
is curvy and detailed painted either red, green or blue.
|I found this paisley fabric with the same colors as the headboard |
for $3/yrd. and had it sewn into a pillow.
Gotta love a custom pillow for $3!
|This was a fun project: I cut out the pattern on a leftover piece of|
fabric and glued it to the plain shade on a T.J. Maxx lamp. It brings color to the right side of
|I had this little antique corner shelf, but didn't know where to mount it. When I was|
painting the room I set it on the dresser and Viola! inspiration: a little book divider.
The lady head vases were my grandmother's and I love them so much.
|The chandelier has been there all along from her nursery. Still|
a pretty, feminine touch.
