We've been working on redecoratin Olivia's room for far too long now. It was all supposed to be done over Christmas break, but as you can see, we're hopeless procrastinators. We finally made some huge progress this weekend and I thought I'd share what we've been up to.
Oliver built a dollhouse bookcase for Olivia and I got to finish it today.
I painted the roof with brown chalkboard paint so Olivia can use it as a drawing surface. I painted the body of the bookcase with white kid proof paint so hopefully it will be easy to keep clean. Olivia and I took a trip to Joann this morning and picked out cute fabric that has the feel of vintage wallpaper. We hot glued this to the back board of the bookcase. We also picked up some pre-painted wooden flowers and a butterfly and used them to make a little yard scene on the side that will be visible. So much cuter than plain white!
Here it is all installed in her room! I love this so much! It came out exactly as I had envisioned it and I LOVE the fabric. If I had seen this when I was shopping for fbric, I would have made a duvet cover for her out of it.
So, there are a few more things to do. I have to finish her quilt. HAVE TO!!! It's been sitting since before Christmas and I'm starting to feel terribly guilty about it. I was going to have a friend quilt it for me, but I think now I will just tie it and then figure out some sort of binding for it. I really need to get it done so keep on me about it! I also need to put her valance together. I'm just going to tie ribbons in various colors and patterns on a dowel and hang it. It really just needs to cover the top of the ugle blinds so you can't see them during the day. Oh! We also hung her pink lights today. She is DYING to go to bed so she can turn them on. Hopefully Oliver will get some shelve thrown together for her closet soon so that we can get the dresser out and give her a nightstand. Her room is really tiny and the less furniture the better, especially since we put the full size bed in there.
I think that's it for Olivia's room! If I can get my stuff together, I'll put up a post about the upstairs hallway (we painted it a deep, bright blue yesterday and it is quite dramatic!).
