new room

We tried to have M share a room with G. Then L. Neither were necessarily bad, we just got thinking that we do have the space, so why not give her some space of her own. So she is on her own, and is in absolute heaven now that she is able to spread out all her Barbies without anyone bugging her. Happy about a desk that allows her to leave out her art projects without a little sister coloring on them.

I'll be honest, M would love a totally pink room full of Disney princess stuff. But, we worked with her and came to a compromise.



The quilt is one of my favorite parts of the room. Bryan's grandma made the top about 30 years ago, and never finished it. (How many of you can say you have unfinished quilt tops in your sewing stash? I can say I have 3! Lets hope it doesn't take someone else, 30 years later, to finish it.) Many of the fabrics are leftovers from clothes she made Bryan's mom. It is special to me, and even M loves the sentimental value.

And another of my favorite finds, the little orange doll on the upper left. I bought it from littleAshop on Etsy. I am not sure if I can resist the urge to buy more, they are SO darling and so reasonably priced. So far M sleeps with it and sneaks it to school. A sign that she loves it.

Bryan found the bed frame and this dresser for $75, and spent a few weeks refinishing them. I am in love with them, and little jealous that M has the nicest furniture in the house.

Her own desk space, bulletin board to show off the latest school projects. Bryan also found this desk on KSL, for really cheap. By the way, finding and restoring old furniture is his current obsession. He brought home 5 pieces last night!

I can't believe she will sleep alone in the basement! Sharon & I were together and always scared to death. I love how the room turned out. Very cute, as always.

I love how Greta is in almost all the pictures. She actually talks about her room in the short car ride to school. She loves it too.

Milli is one lucky girl. The furniture turned out really great. I wish I could score some nice furniture like that around here. Bryan needs to keep up the good work, they are lovely.
Greta is getting so big. I also love the quilt. I have no quilt tops in my closet, but probably because I hate getting out my sewing machine! ;)

Very cute. I am torn. Half of me wants to do a stylish, simple, timeless room. Half of me wants to go over the top little girl dreamland because she is only this age once (and I will hate it next year).

I love this room and the sentimental value of the quilt. Amazing furniture finds!

Love the room, and I must say I adore the quilt.

Gorgeous room! I love the quilt especially. And thanks for your kind words about my bundle babies. It's fun to see one of my babies happily settled in his new home. :)

Audrey said...

So darling! I totally understand Bryan's obsession the problem is once you start new furniture always just seems too expensive.

Mindy said...

Very cute and clean! Where did Milli hide all her dolls for the pics? I want to come see this stylish room in person. Can't think of a more deserving little girl than Millerpede!

Oh wow, I LOVE this! I had no idea you were doing such cute things in Milli's room. I think my favorite decoration is the little girl with pig tales in every picture.
