I know I promised to show you Sia's room a long long time ago and I really started to. Problem was I borrowed a camera to take the photos and then forgot all about it. So here it is.. never finished of course and if i know myself it will change alot.
P.s. these pictures are kinda fake. She wasn't home that day and let me tell you.. she loves to go play in her room now and lets just say as a 4 year old... its just not pretty. At the moment you really cant even walk in there.
Thank you Pinterest. You suck because I waste alot of time on you but then again, I get great ideas like this. The toys are showcased in their own little pocket and not at the bottom of a box.
The only things I actually purchased for this room: paint, lamp, chandelier, and Martha Stewart boxes.
I framed a picture of our daughter and then us as kids. She really loves it. I mean .. to her its so WEIRD we were kids too.
I actually got the general pattern of the woods from a bathroom on Pinterest too. It took
three four, five.. coats of craft paint.
These are above her bed. I have been waiting to hang her name since she got it as a gift as a BABY! Finally! she has her own room that I can put it in. I hung it from a piece of driftwood that I picked up in the Bahamas long before she was born. A vintage pattern of girls night robes of my moms framed with scrapbook paper. Also, framed print from my neighbor who was redecorating. There we actually three but since they are actually for a nursery I chose just to keep one which is the "Mary, Mary quite contrary.." nursery rhyme. It is Sia's favorite since her first name is Mary. I opened one of the others up to use the frame and they are from a calendar!
I love Goodwill. Like, kinda obsessively. This lamp was already hot pink, half off, and perfect! The "lanterns" on this wall are from my daughters favorite movie "Tangled". Originally, they weren't part of the plan but she wanted them so bad. They still are not finished (oops). However, the bottom five are ... Sia excitedly did them! She was super pumped to be drawing on her wall with moms permission.
My dresser re-do project. This was mine along with the bed from when I was a kid. My parents bought it at an antique store and it had already seen the prime of life. I didnt think to take a before picture but it was just plain brown stained and ugly. I changed the knobs to match her crystal chandelier and painted it with high gloss enamel yellow that my daughter picked. So far it has held up really well.. the paint is kinda indestructible.
So there yall have it.
