Adventures in Decorating: Tweaking Mini-Me’s room

I’ve been on a work sabbatical that is nearing an end. Part of the time I have been seriously nesting. My daughter’s room has been “off” ever since we moved the French line green chalk painted desk to the playroom.
I didn’t want to spend much money so I challenged myself to use what I had on hand. The custom book shelf doll house was made from three cast off melamine book shelf shoe holder things. I don’t love the zebra with the curtains but I made it fit as best I could knowing this phase too shall pass and we can easily switch the zebra out for another fabric some day. I need to get her art and photo frames on the wall. I am also going to tackle making some sort of doll house stuff storage thing out of spare parts. Here are the pics with the usual promise to circle back and give details at some point. Hope you are enjoying your spring Lovies!
Best,
Laura

MiniMe’s Tween Room Redo

20121203-201656.jpg

I may have mentioned I have too many projects going at once right now. I’m trying to get things to good enough so I don’t drive myself nuts before Christmas. This is as far as I’ve gotten on her new room. I managed to find bedding that allowed me to keep the custom drapes and paint colors the same. I’m pulling in more lime by painting her new vanity that color in home made chalk paint (sometime this winter). I’m pulling in black and white zebra with shower curtains I am turning into memo boards she can thumb tack to her hearts content. But it’s far far from done and I have issues living in undone rooms. I know, we all have our sicknesses and one of mine is undone decor.
