If you’re a regular FT visitor – you know that I don’t do giant grand stuff too often. or Ever?
But I have some big things I’m working on and so I thought I’d share my plans with you! (And by big, I mean, big for me. Not like I-built-an-entire-craft/play/storage-space-in-my-hall-closet big. )
But fun for me all the same.
So here’s what’s up!
We’re redoing my daughter’s room. And as you might know, we can’t paint the walls (boo rental). So we have to add colors in another way.
The room is inspired by this pin:
(This is actually a photo from the Etsy shop selling that darling vinyl quote on the wall. Cool huh?)
We’re tweaking the style a bit. My daughter already has a white iron daybed. So we’re adding these guys to either side of the bed and doing a long shelf close to the ceiling between them with some lighting.
The Bedding is Amy Butler’s Morning Glory that I picked up on clearance at BBB. Woot!
I’m accenting with other fabrics that match from the Lark collection. I am thinking it will be a really fun, bright room even if we can’t paint the walls.
Ok – so that’s the girl’s room. I’m also currently working on my bedroom!!
We had an Ikea bedroom set that’s we’d bought a few years ago. But last year after my Grandmother passed away, we inherited the bedroom set that was in her guest bedroom.
It was my grandparents bed when they got married and it’s been in the family for a really long time. I’m so thrilled to have it. So of course I have to redo my whole room. ;)
Here’s the plan.
My goal is to have an “antique” feel with the ticking fabric but with the modern gray, red and cream colors.
The ruffles section above are going to be this bit of gorgeousness – I am so in love with this ruffle throw.
(This is by DIY Design and she has a great tutorial for it.)
I’m not as far along in my room as I am in my daughters. I still need to figure out the artwork over the bed. I have a giant gold mirror (also from my grandma) but I’m not sure about the gold.
Or if I want that over the bed. . . hmmm.
I like this big mirror – and they even have the ticking on their bed.
But I also like these flippy wreaths . . .
It’s a work in process. As you can tell by my master bedroom pinboard. It’s a bit all over the place.
So what do you think?
I’d love your opinion about everything – and any thoughts or suggestions you have!
I can’t wait to show you the finished rooms!!
