Monday Makeover--Princess bed and a few odds and ends
The next to additions to her room have been on my TO-DO list for about...A YEAR!!! I even had the stuff to make-over, just not the time, energy, or motivation. BUT once one thing gets up-graded, it is best to keep the ball rolling. SO I took this little shelf I found at Value Village for 5 dollars and gave it a face lift.
Here is the new HAIR STATION....Much better than the huge pile of junk that used to reside on the top of her dresser!!
And since the REAL reason for my blog is to remember this time of my life and the lives of my kiddos, I am gonna take a quick tour of Emersyn's room as it is right now. Go ahead and blog hop somewhere else if you like.
Her dresser area is in one corner. We found the dresser on Craigslist and Todd did some touch up painting to it. I love that it is kinda throw back vintage looking---although it is actually from Target (shhhh).
The shelves I got from Grandma June before Emersyn was born. She thought I might find a use for them....yes please. I painted them and think they are kinda cute and girlie. The 2 vintage signs and the cute soap box were a gift for Baby Girl when she was born (Thanks Paula). The hanging signs were made by my Bobbie and have cute little vinyl words on them. The tiny ceramic piggies were found by Russ and given to us (since anyone who knows me AT ALL knows I have a thing for piggies). Next are Em's first little baby shoes--I cannot make myself pack them up. AND LAST are her cute little Birthday Girls. One for each of her 3 birthdays and given to her by Grandma Marilee.
MOVING ON. The ugly star is Emersyn's music box. As a baby she was the worst sleeper EVER. This music plays for EVERY nap, EVERY bed time, AND EVERY nightmare---night waking---quiet time. I am sure she can now go to sleep without it, but I don't wanna find out.
Phewww....that about sums it up. There are a few more changes I would like to add to Emersyn's room to make it a little more BIG GIRL. But for now we are pretty happy with the results:)
