Spring is in the air! And so is my motivation for organizing and decorating. We have a three bedroom home, so naturally when Sawyer arrives the girls will be sharing a room. They are very excited about this, which adds to my own excitement about creating a beautiful, feminine sanctuary for them to share. I will try to paint a picture for you with words and a few sneak peeks. Imagine two shades of pale green, alternating in large vertical stripes around the bottom third of the room. Just above this, chair rail painted the darker shade of green. The lighter shade of green covers the remaining two thirds of the room. Now picture an antique white, distressed, feminine dresser and matching night stand between two twin beds. Here's the bedding.
Now picture, in the place of headboards, two shabby chic 8x10 picture frames hung by floral ribbon on decorative white pegs with these pictures in them.
This one, of course, above Emma's bed.
This one over Chloe's. Above each of these pictures will be their names, in wooden letters, painted in delicate pinks and greens. Additional wall and dresser top accessories are building up slowly. Here's what I have so far. The shelf I just found yesterday at my favorite antique store. The sign and frame are from Hobby Lobby. The frame is what will hold the pictures and will be hung similar to this. Beyond decorating the girl's room, their closet will need to be organized to accommodate both of their clothes and shoes. I will be getting a second closet rod that hangs from the first one so they'll each have their own rod. And of course, only two season's worth of clothes will be hanging in there at a time. Baskets will organize the top, shoe racks and storage drawers the bottom. Call me crazy, but it gets me just giddy thinking about all this decorating and organizing! I'm just one of "those" I guess. I'll post about my plans for Sawyers nursery next, so stay tuned!
