We finally finished one of our big summer projects - an almost complete redo of my middle daughters room. She's a purple girl as you can see, so she picked many hues and shades of purple to work with.
We kept the furniture that she already had. Still need a picture or art work over the tall dresser. We haven't found something that says "WOW" yet. But we will!
The headboard is new. She loves to read and needed more space for all her books. And this keeps them handy for her. (And it's a nice area to keep her diabetes supplies handy too! ~mom's always thinkin'~) My husband did the new shelving in her closets. It's so nice and organized, I'm motivated to do our closet now.
The artwork she choose for over the bed surprised me. It's got a modern flare, but I just love it. Perfect for the young woman she's become! It turned out so inviting, light, and relaxing. We are all very pleased with it. I love walking by her room and just looking at it!
Now on to the next project....the bathroom we started months ago!
This is my very favorite find today! My oldest is leaving for Penn State (Behrend Campus) soon and I was lucky to find these fabulous PSU drinking glasses. Perfect for the her dorm! Or maybe she'll let mom keep them so I can think about her when I use them. Like I wouldn't be thinking about her anyhow!
We’re making room for tons of “new” estate items. There will be vintage and antique linens, vintage jewelry, English teacups, shabby and shiny silver, hand painted china, vintage vanity items….and much more! So please check often!
I stopped at my favorite little farmers market and saw the most beautiful blackberries. They were huge! About the size of a spring strawberry! They made THE best Blackberry Cobbler. A wonderful summer treat!
