When we first started doing foster care last year, Paige had to give up her room and stay in the guest bedroom in our finished basement, which is, in my opinion, one of the scariest places in the house. But she was such a sport about it, I was so proud of her. Quite a few months later we were finally able to bring her back upstairs so we took that opportunity to make her new room a little more special.
What I really love about the room is how many of the things in it are DIYs that we did together. The pom pom garland, the gold hexadots, the A-frame tent, the straw pendant banner, the doily dream catchers, the tissue flowers, the heart pillows, the giant leaf mobile, the skateboard shelves--whew! More than I'd realized! Most of the other things were either thrifted (like her sweet vintage bedspread) or made for her by friends (the Ash and Pikachu art, the tree side table and the elk art). The awesome bookrack was a steal from when the Blockbuster store in town went out of business and the rug is from Lowes. Pink piano by Shoenhut.
Now we just need to instal trim boards in there one of these days. Hey, it's only been five years, give us a break... :O)
Happy Sunderday! That's "so-late-on-Saturday-that-it's-practically-Sunday". Probably too late for me to try to be funny in my blog posts in fact...yikes.
