I am SO HAPPY to have finally finished the girls’ room. It is sooooo much fun designing kids’ rooms because they can be fun, playful and over-the-top (to an extent, haha). And, I get to use colors that I may not get to play with in the rest of the house. For Natalie and Layla’s room, I gave them what they wanted–GIRLIE! And pink. But, I also wanted to keep a scrappy, handmade, sweet look. This is what I came up with:
It was fun–but I’m glad I’m finally finished! Their room took a lot of sewing time, more than any other room in the house, that’s for sure! Here’s a bit more info:
- The book slings were made using this fabulous tutorial.
- We got the bunk bed on Craigslist for $100.
- The tent was made using this pattern. It was a LOT of work and a TON of fabric. I used sheets and curtain panels from thrift stores, otherwise, the cost of fabric would have been ridiculous.
- The super-cute paper doll quilt was made by my friend Jenn, using these fabric panels. The clothes are in those little baskets next to the quilt and have fusible fleece on the back so they stick. We LOVE this little quilt 🙂
- The closet curtains were sheers that my Aunt Teddi gave me (thank you!) and I prettied them up with fabric scraps, the denim tabs (from the denim curtains I used on the tent), buttons, and rick-rack. So, they didn’t cost me a dime!
- The paint is Baer, Hawaiian Shell from Home Depot. We got the paint with the primer mixed in, to see if it would prevent having to do two coats. It didn’t. Now we know 🙂
- I made both the girls’ quilts, using this book, my favorite quilt book by far!
