Well, here she is in her new habitat.
I made her for a dear friend who was decorating a bedroom for two of her little girls. She did such a fantastic job that I asked her if I could come in to take some pictures to show you all. I'm sure her first reaction was, "You want to take pictures of my daughters' bedroom and put them on your blug? Blag? What's that thing called again?" But, being the darling that she is she said, "Sure!'
She wanted the bedroom to have the look of something old that's been cobbled together over time. I love her attitude that the painted furniture looks even better once it gets some nicks and wear on it.
The walls are painted a beautiful pale green with a hint of blue in it. Then she painted this old bed a warm, creamy color. Before it was natural rustic wood. Probably good in some setting, but not what she was going for.
Next up was this dresser. This was her husband's childhood dresser. She painted it a soft white with a hint of green and replaced the hardware. Just beautiful!
I think this is my favorite part. She painted this old desk a wonderful shade of 1930's green. Oddly enough, the bright green of the desk makes the walls look a little bluer which is what she was going for in the first place.
And then look inside the closet! You know you've succeeded when your freaky friend is taking pictures of the inside of your closet. I love the basket organizers!
One last thing...I have to show you these beautiful curtains. Don't they look like some high-end custom creation? Actually they're a shower curtain that she bought on clearance at Anthropologie! She split it down the middle and stitched up the raw edge. Voila! Just gorgeous.
