Did you already read this post? Check out my I'm-not-as-abnoxious-as-I-sounded disclaimer below in red! Phew.I've given up on waiting 'till it's "finished." I should know better by now. It's just always a work in progress. Here is their room, for now. I bought a few drawer-pulls from anthro that I'm debating between for that little side table... I meant to put some on before the photo.... oops.
This is where the Target poufs I blogged about have ended up for now. I wasn't planning on silver in there. Do you think it distracts? This room has sort of been a huge head ache to me. Maybe I went a few too many ways and feel a bit modge-podgey.... but it's feeling personal now which I love.
This, of course is what makes it the most personal... their collage wall. I wondered if it was too much or too big for the room. But I think I love it. The painting is one my Grandma did, when she was alive, of me and my sister, Lacy at the beach. I still remember when she snapped the photo (she later used to paint from.) I remember that Lacy's t-shirt actually was a Mickey Mouse T-shirt... something she chose to leave out. :) It was painted in 86 which means I was 5, just like Sophia. It feels good to get it up on the wall in such a perfect home. ALERT ALERT-- yikes... my mom just told me she read my blog today and thought it was weird that I said I had a perfect home. That it didn't sound like me. "What? I would never say that, mom." Then I read that last line above... YIKES--- what I meant was that it was nice to find a "perfect home" for this old painting from my grandma.... the girls' room. NOT that I have a perfect home. Hopefully this scary red font forces you to read it. what else should I squeeze in while I've got your attention..... hmmm
The green striped curtains are made, of course, by Brooke's mom. Did I mention I took photos of their family and she is doing projects in exchange? Best trade ever.
I've had a few requests for the fabric source... I've tried finding it again and it's nowhere. But it was originally from fabric.com and it was called "awning striped" fabric. Specifically: For Your Home Awning Stripe Ivory/Sea Urchin PS-5189
I spray painted that lamp and it was the greatest spray-painting experience ever. It's high-gloss, where I think I usually buy satin. And it's labeled as paint and primer in one. It seemed to go on fast and smooth and I loved the sheen. It felt so much less "spray painted". The shade is from Target and just kind of happened to go really well with the paint.
