Even though they have day beds i have decided to go with the traditional line up of pillows. Their last set had ALL the pillows going across the back of the bed and quite frankly, that's just TOO MANY FREAKIN' PILLOWS. I couldn't take it anymore.
Now if your thinking, gosh what a cute, CLEAN room, just wait a second...
here are the photography conditions I was working with
Maybe I should have just let you think that we live in a gorgeous, spotless house. But that would be a LIE! There book shelf is A MESS. No matter how many times I clean it and tell them to leave it like that, they quickly put their little (messy) touches all over it. I want to paint the shelf again, but can't quite decide how. Brown? Or is that too much? Maybe just the roof?
The girls and I did work on a little art project for their room together. We made some paper owls and a bird to mount on canvas and frame. Pretty, Pretty, Pretty happy with how they turned out. Giddy is more like it!
They each designed their own owls and helped put them together. We mod podged them onto canvas that I cut down to fit the frame. I had these old Pottery Barn Artwork frames that were missing the plexi glass. I painted them brown, sanded them and attached ribbon (Martha Stewart ribbon) and hung them from these little flowers I bought at Tai Pan in Utah. We still need to hang the last flower to get the set up (ran out of screws).
Samantha's Owl, my bird
We are also wanting to make these cute little owls pillows from Pottery Barn together. That will make a good fall/winter sewing project for us girls! I ordered some cute fabrics from Heather Bailey I think will mix well with the fabrics that I used on their other pillows.
(isn't this room to DIE for????) seriously, if i didn't already have their room done I be SO tempted to splurge on this set. But i know the set they have will grow with them a little better.
And there you have it. The room!
