A girl and her NEW room!
A has been waiting as patiently as a 5 year old can for us to finish up on her bedroom project. This used to be our guest room/office...one of my favorite spots in the house. But with #3 on the way and the need for a nursery looming, I offered the spot to A. She jumped at the chance...heck...she has her own bathroom now (what every 5 yr. old girl needs!). So the shopping began. I insisted the cocoa brown walls would have to stay and A picked out some darling horse bedding from The Company Store. A local artisan painted all the furniture for us and it is simply stunning! I love furniture with history and was dreading a trip to the local Furniture Mart...when I happened across this amazing shop right in my own backyard. The owner salvages old furniture pieces, custom paints them, and sells them in a beat up old farmhouse just blocks from my neighborhood. She helped me piece together an entire bedroom suite of girly french country furniture. A was thrilled with the end result...ok...we still have a few finishing touches to see to...but we are almost done! Here she is on her first night in her brand new big girl room with "Fifi" and "Donut" (pictured left to right if you care). Sweet dreams to my sweet baby!
