Sneak peek @ the girls room

Walls painted- check
mirrored door replaced- check
bunk bed put together- check

Still working on Ms. Thang's quilt
Still need to do the "art above the bed" **updated at the bottom eek!**
Still need all the accessories

But it's coming along!

Hard shot cause of the window..

For the record, Ms. Thang and Cutecumber are loving it, and Honey doesn't. He says it looks boring and like a baby boys room because it's boy colors. I can see where he is coming from, but I'm hoping that changes once all the accessories are in there. His bad reviews started as soon as he saw that I painted over the door that he had a big part in making. :S

I'm thinking of stapling a bed skirt to the bottom bunk (under side) because the ladder makes it impossible to use one the traditional way.

Still on the hunt for a good reading chair and a long 6 drawer dresser. These items may take awhile.

I've got the red doll high chair and the red doll bed, just waiting on the doll bed to dry.

Ms. Thang decoupaged two crosses and they are absolutely perfect. She picked everything out and aside from a bit of help with the xacto knife, they are all her.

The toy box still needs a make over too. I'm having trouble deciding what to do with it.

Ok I just finished this and had to show you how cute it came out! Dreaming of love...

This is the idea Ms. Thang and I collaborated on and actually agreed on from the start. Hand painted, and I know I say it all the time, but I think the imperfections make it so charming.


  1. I don't think it looks boyish because of all of the great touches you've done! Just from these limited pictures (hint - want more pics) I think the color is very peaceful!

    I can't wait to see the end product!

    Oh, and NOT THE DOOOOR!! I'm with Greg on this one. Sad. :(

  2. You wrote as I posted one more picture..hope you see it. And thanks! :)

  3. I love it! I can't wait to see it finished.

    I love the board and batten look- are your walls flat? I'm not sure it would look right with our walls- they're bumpy- I think it's called orange peel texture...

  4. Yes they were textured and still are on the upper half, but I used some putty stuff and made them fairly smooth on the lower half. (used a putty knife and it just filled in the texture. It went quickly and I probably spent about 20 minutes total) They are not perfectly smooth, but you really can't tell. I think our walls are the same. Orange peel describes ours pretty well.

  5. Hey! The room looks so good!! I love all the colors!! You are making me question if I should have gotten my girls bunk beds instead of having my mil get them two separate beds.... LOL Oh Well, I'll wait a while before bringing THAT up..

    Maybe you can Velcro the skirt instead of Stapling it? You can put squares of fabric Velcro like 6 inches apart from each other.... That way you don't ruin the wood with the staples....

    I can't wait to see the rest!!
