I hope you all had a fun evening spent with someone you adore. We had a nice dinner at home and I’m still recovering from the large amount of cookie cake I
inhaled ate. But with Valentine’s Day behind us, and no holidays in the imminent future, it’s time to tackle Babygirl’s Room once and for all!
It’s embarrassing when I think about how long it’s taking me to make over my daughter’s room (I started posting it early last fall!)!! It’s totally ridiculous, she’s even lost interest. There is something so fabulous about being able to design a room in a solid block of time, then do a big reveal of the outcome. (Remember my son’s expression when he saw his new room for the first time?) Babygirl isn’t getting a “Move That Bus!” moment, but I know she likes what I’ve done so far.
I promise to complete this room soon, if only because my ADD is kicking in for other rooms! (Hello, Dining Room drape samples have arrived!) And if you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen the progress made on fixing my Ceiling Mishap. I plan to finish that project this weekend.
How about something I have finished?! Remember these Personalized Art Tins I made
My little girl loves to color and was
stealing so jealous of her brother’s nifty set, so she got her own. She also loves to play waitress, so I deemed a clipboard necessary for her to take orders properly.
1. Pick up a basic clipboard at an office supply store for less than $2.
2. Paint the sides, top and back. Adopt-A-Shark sticker optional, my helper declared it necessary.
3. Glue a sheet of scrapbook paper (mine just happens to look like notebook paper) to the front, trim to fit and cover with a few coats of ModPodge.
Here’s how it’s all coming together:
This corner of the room is too small for furniture, so I’m utilizing the sliver of wall to make the most of the space. I added this magnetic/writing board for a full-blown Creative Corner!
Next she needs a flat surface on which to work…I’ll show you what I came up with tomorrow. What do you think so far? And better yet, why does my daughter have her own crafting corner while I continue to create on the kitchen floor?!?
