This has been my most fun project so far.
Creating a space for my daughter, but
not making it too "little girl". She's only 3.5...but very much
a girly girl and so we have named this the Glamour Girl's room!
I have a few more things to finish up on, and some things to search
for still....I have learned that this doesn't happen overnite and if I
want to find the right things, that takes time.
So, in a nutshell, I.am.learning.to.be.patient.
Branmuffin, a.k.a. Brandon, my husband painted her room this weekend
in one day. Not many husbands would take on that project
and complete it in.one.day, so to him I say...
Thanks for spending your Saturday in a room filled with pink paint.
Benjamin Moore's "Smashing Pink"....
....let me just say, her room glows!
But, it took 24 hours to grow on me...you know how paint can be.
So different from a swatch to an entire room!
And remember this chair?
Now it looks like this...much better huh?
I bought it at Good Will for $14.99 and we spray
painted it white.
We removed the old fabric, foam and padding and replaced it.
My Mom taught me how to sew the edging with cording,
and it was all stapled into the wood base.
With a few shots from the glue gun
and some screws to the base..this chair was complete!
And here is the happy owner...our own little Glam Girl!
Shoot, when I see it all together...I want to paint
EVERYTHING! Paint is a beautiful thing and I am having a hard
time stepping away...
Stay with me, I have lamps, bedside tables, another fabric covered
headboard and a ultra-high bed to share....and all the other details.
Whew! So much fun for me to do and share.
BTW, I say "We" a lot on my DIY posts...I have
a very supportive husband who helps me take on these endevours and
sometimes does the hardest part. We have two little ones that need
to be kept away from the mess to make it possible so we work as a team.
I am thrilled that he wants to make our house a home together.
