A Little Decorating Project

Well, we're finally feeling settled in our new home here in Jacksonville.  All the boxes are unpacked and apart from some pictures that still need to be hung on the walls - things are looking pretty good!  Of course there's tons of 'decorating ideas' I have (all the awesome blogs I subscribe to are such great inspiration - lots of fantastic DIY projects out there!!!) but I have time... we will be here three years and although I have to remind myself this daily - I don't need to have EVERYTHING done in a week!

I have made a point of making my daughter's room a priority though and I am thrilled to show you pics!!!  It all came together this morning when I hung up the last of the fabric garland... what do you think?
All finished!!!  Ry's room turned out a lot like I envisioned... a little random and a LOT colorful!
The garland was inspired by this awesome tutorial:  Purlbee Party Garland
I used fabric scraps that I already had - such a thrifty decoration!
This turquoise shelf was $9.99 at Michael's and then I painted it turquoise using acrylic craft paint.  The vinyl decals were $12.99 at Target - unfortunately my daughter saw that they're 'stickers' and keeps trying to pull the lower ones off the wall!!!!

Her 'big girl' bed that she started sleeping in the 2nd night we
were in our new house!  We found the adorable bedding
at Target for only $39!

I had the basket and used it for craft shows and the  local farmer's market in our old town - works
perfect with her books & a few bedroom toys

The turquoise wall art on the left normally sits vertically and holds a calendar!  I thought it'd be a fun place to put
family photos.... the art work on the right is something I painted in high school, the colors are super bright and PERFECT for little girl's new room.

The lamp is a thrift store find from a couple years back - I just added ribbon trim to the shade and looped some of the fabric garladn to the top.  

The turquoise shelf is an antique store find that I spray painted.  The three birds hanging from it are Christmas ornaments that I found in December at World Market.

This is just a simple Ikea dresser from years ago but I found the adorable turquoise knobs
at TJMaxx last week for $12.99!  

This is a blackout panel purchased at Target for $15.99.  I'd still like to embellish it with some jumbo white rick rack trim but the fabric garland looks cute too (I need to iron these - oops!)

This was a Christmas gift from Grandma but I waited to hang it until we got to our new house

The reading area... the glider will go to baby #2's room down the road but it works great for snuggles and reading time before naps and bedtime.  The quilt was knitted by Grandma Jan - another great homemade accent!
