…how ’bout this
Blast From the Past Project!
See this little cutie-petutie?
She’s my #4 of 8 GREAT nieces!
Where has all that time gone—?
When she was 2or3’ish -and soon after her parents bought their 1st house- my niece/Goddaughter relinquished the task of making a little Princess room for her!
Since I can’t find any pictures of the room to share, you’ll have to imagine this—
Mind you, it was the smallest BR in the house so you can only do so much. . .
The room was painted Pink, of course!
We wrapped the room in a picket fence and hot glued some silk wild flowers around and behind some of the boards. Among other details, a vintage light was hung, and I re-worked a few pieces of vintage furniture. THIS furniture.
I found the sweetest potential of a bed in a thrift store during a half price sale,
$10 $5! Sorry, no pictures from when I bought it (’02 or ’03), but you can see what I did to it below. A simple shabby chic paint job, and an upholstery job with over-sized welting! The same cabbage rose fabric and some lace also made a matching duvet, pillow sham, bed skirt, and drapes!
This was the French Empire dresser I shabby chic’d for her
—that later made it’s way back to me for THIS other project!
This was one of my earlier postings,
and, it~I was lucky enough to be featured on many prominent blogs for it! Which put me in front of many of you! My people who GET me! ; D
