Better than telling you about the room is showing you...so why don't I take you on a tour of my daughter's room?
|Changing Table - The paintings above are made by me (blogpost to follow for DIY instructions!), the actual change pad is a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law, and a basket found from another area of the house for all the change table necessities.|
|The actual changing table was our kitchen island in our last apartment. And the baskets underneath were a great deal from Target.|
|A basket from my previous classroom, with an old scarf of mine, used to hold extra toys.|
|On top of a cabinet also left from past owners (along with the adorable curtains) I have made 3 muffin paper balls (blogpost of how-to to follow). The bin in the middle is a box of memories for Emelyn, with a sign made by my talented sister (Find her work here: Snippets By Design)|
|Oh hello, Emelyn!|
|Crib and mobile were both found from a Mom to Mom sale.|
|Frames above - Great deal at Target again! Pictures were done by my brother-in-law.|
|Wall decor - All the frames are thrift store finds and after painted by me!|
|Lamp - Deal at Target|
Bird - Liquidation store
Box Card - Made by Snippets By Design
Container - Ikea in As Is section
Cats - Gift
Dresser - Mine as a kid!
1. Pick a theme or specific colours and stick with it. I focused on Pink and Grey and by making sure mostly everything matched this theme, it made the room look more complete.
2. Look everywhere and anywhere. You never know where you could find a piece of decor that will add something to your room.
3. Think about what you already have. Most of the items in Emelyn's room are things I did not have to buy..I used what I already had to make the room work.
4. Don't be afraid to DIY. Even if you aren't crafty, putting a DIY item or two in the room will add your own special touch, no matter if you don't have an artsy bone in your body. (Thank goodness for Pinterest for quick and easy ideas! :)
