Well I am VERY excited to show you Lilly's new room. I refuse to call it a big girl room because she is still a little girl. ( ; (We all know I really wanted to keep her in her crib until kindergarten but that just didn't work out for me.)
Shall we enter?
And the other wall. Mrs. Potts and the sound machine really aren't supposed to be in the picture...but, oh well, this is real life, right?
She used some left over fabric from the headboard and covered the letters and used lots of cute ribbon. Adorable!!
I LOVE that this says "Princess and Daughter of the King" because that is the kind of "princess" I want Lilly to know that she is. In fact, I really just love every word this says!
I repainted Lilly's bookshelf white and found those pink baskets on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $3.50. Score! I can't decide if I am going to paint the green baskets yet or not. At this point the thought of doing another project makes me tense up a bit.
All ready for some art! Since I have been painting for almost two weeks, she has been BEGGING to paint so maybe this week she will be able to create some masterpieces.
My mom made Lilly this bag for her dance stuff. I hang it on her door to show it off! Lilly LOVES it! Now I think the room turned out great! It is super cute and girly just like my sweet Lilly! But what really matters is whether or not Lilly likes it...
First seeing it!
Climbing in to try it out.
Jumping on the bed! You know that is the only real way to test a bed!
Laying on it. She said, "I love it! I love it! I love it!"
Ready for bed!!
She has done really great in her new room. The first night she went to sleep right away. We had two rough nap days which resulted in her being over tired. Before bed that night she started crying and throwing a fit for her crib. I want to tell you I was a great mom and went in and rubbed her back and talked about great her new room is and soothed her to sleep...but that would be a lie. See, I too was really tired from working on the room and I responded with more of an unsympathetic, "You asked for it, I worked hard on it, now go in there and love it!" Ha! Anyway, other than that night, she has loved it!
