Girly Girl!

DSC_0601 DSC_0604For some reason I LOVE decorating girls rooms. They seriously have a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s because I can channel my inner girly girl and go all out in a way that I couldn’t in another space. My daughter’s room was no exception. I can honestly say it’s one of my favourite rooms in the house. There’s nothing like pink and purple and full out, no holds barred girliness that makes my heart flutter!

The best part of this room is that I found the bed in my neighbours garbage (along with a matching desk which I’ve put aside for another project) and fixed it up to be as fabulous as it is now! I really have become that creepy garbage picking lady but it’s worth it for a room like this one.

I made the valence to hide a simple roller shade and I love to repeat a pattern in a room which is why when I found this $2.99/yard striped fabric end and could repeat the stripe from the wallpaper I was sold!

This was my first attempt at hanging wallpaper which I did with 2 children underfoot. I plopped them in my daughter’s crib (which she had outgrown), the kids thought it was hilarious and surprisingly they played happily while I got on with the wallpapering. It’s a small miracle the lines are straight – I was one determined mama that day!

Oh Monday! You arrived too quickly. I wish I could spend today curled up here in this cozy chair at #cmiprojectkelso with a warm cup of coffee! This room was feeling so flat to me with just painted walls. I’d never tried  @urbanwalls wall decals before but I figured what did I have to loose?! Worst case I didn’t like them and I took them down. I can’t believe how easy they were to install and how much better they make this room look! This isn’t an ad, it’s just me sharing a great experience. The moon last night was unbelievable!! Good bye 2017 and welcome 2018! Wishing each of you good health and much joy this year. #newyearseve #newyearsday We barely squeaked out this kids Jack and Jill bath in time for the holidays but having the kids out of my bathroom is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
