Yep. It's done. I've been planning, gathering, painting and sewing since last fall, but today I can finally say it is done!
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
I think this is my favourite part:
This is Afton's favourite part:
I'll share how I made the pillow below later on in the week.
The chair is a $5 yard sale find that I hit with 2 cans of cream spray paint to cover the previous orange and purple paint!!
Afton's name has hung on her wall since we chose it 5 months before she was born ( that's almost 8 years ago!! ) They've been 3 different colours, but still are an important decoration in her room.
I let Afton choose her new light fixture. I was sure she would pick a glittery jewel-covered chandelier.
Instead she chose this lacy barrel shade from the Home Depot.
It casts beautiful shadows!
This dresser has been pink for years. No change here. We like just as it is!
The rose picture below is from IKEA, the painting of Notre Dame is a junk store find, and the painting of the doorway was done by Afton herself.
She has a lot of talent, doesn't she??
I am very pleased with this room.
So is Afton.
It really is the kind of room I would have loved to have had when I was a little girl.
Pink and blue and rosy all over!!
In fact, it's the kind of bedroom I'd like now- but I don't think dear sweet hubby would go for it!!
I'll admit that we are having a bit of trouble keeping it tidy, but each day we do a little spruce up in hopes to stay on top of the typical 7-year-old girl mess.
Big Brother Bryn's room. His room has been basically the same since 2008 so it's time for some new elements.
We are thinking some kind of "explorer" theme.
What does that entail?
Just wait and see.......
Hugs to all,
