My Daughters Room

My Daughter went on a surprise trip this week to Greenwich, Ct. and New York City with her Grannie.


While she is gone...

I am taking the opportunity to clean out her room and spruce it up a bit.  

Her Bedroom was designed a few years ago.

The original room can been seen over at Rate My Space.

The design was centered around her love of horses and the dot bedding she chose. 
She has grown up a bit since then. 
I think it's important that her room grow with her. 

A few of the changes I made this week include the addition of the zebra print.  
She picked it out on a recent trip to the fabric store and asked me to incorporate it into her room.

I used it on the bed,  

and as a background for some of her favorite photos.

The Jewelry box was a thrift store find.

 I gave it a coat of spray paint to coordinate with her room.

The stars were a Martha Stewart kit.  

We hung them up at Christmas time and decided to keep them around for a while. 

Her desk was made from a Vintage Four Post Bed.  It no longer fit into her room.  
 It had a lot of sentimental value to her
 so we repurposed it into this floating desk. 

We picked up this acrylic chair for the desk to add a little contemporary fun to the space. 

The magnetic boards were made using MDF, flashing and fabric.

I am very excited for her to come home... 

However, it's been fun playing in her room!
