The Girly Room

There's not a room in our house that is completely finished yet but this one is so close.

This would be a pretty room for you to sleep in if you came to visit. :)

We call it the girly room.  


Very few things have been purchased for this room. 

It's decorated mostly with items we had already and some great ideas from my blogging friends.

The shelf on the wall used to hang at the old house...I spray painted it white.

The white picture frame was spray painted and the pretty print was downloaded for free from here.

The pretty little blue frame came from Laurie Anna's Vintage Home 
and those people in the picture are not us...yet.



We made the headboard y'all!

We studied ideas from a several blogs and made it ourselves back in December.

We covered it with an old matelasse bedspread. 

The bedding is a mix of old Pottery Barn and Shabby Chic from Target.


This sweet little lamp came from HomeGoods.

The lamp is sitting on a stack of books that I covered with scrapbooking paper.


I've had this pretty print for probably 20 years.

Still love it.


The room isn't complete but it's close.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a soft white chair to sit and read a book?


We've had lots of company since moving here and I love offering this room to girlfriends.

Note to self:  Put pictures in the frames.

What a fantastic idea to use the old bedspread to cover the headboard! I love this type of fabric. In fact, I just recovered two chairs with an off white matelasse. Your blue lamp is just so sweet. The entire room is very comfy!

Stacey, I wish I could come stay in this pretty room, but you might not ever get rid of me. I'm so impressed with your headborad. The bedding is the perfect feminine touch. It looks like a cottage bed and breakfast. If I come visit, will you serve breakfast? laurie

That turqoise lamp is my favorite touch!

Hope you try the carrot cake recipe you commented on, it's so good. I've got half a cake left that I have to give away, it's so yummy, it's too tempting for me to keep around!

I love that little Home Goods lamp. The closest one is 30 minutes away and I just don't get there very often.

I am still reading backwards so I don't yet know why you moved to Texas and where you were previously.
