Do you know how long I have been waiting to write a post with that title??? Oh, I guess for about 15 MONTHS!!!! ;-) But as you can see by our ring countdown, we are getting VERY close! (of course the short one is TODAY!)
Well, the room is not 100% totally and completely complete, but it is close enough! And I can't write another word without giving credit where credit is due and saying that my dear friend JEWEL is the creative source behind this room. I just gave her the general idea of what I was thinking and she just RAN with it! She has such a good eye and is so talented and creative, and, well, let's let her work speak for itself!!!
Oh, and just because he has so much time on his hands (note sarcasm) he also decided to re-do the closet AND build some inset shelves and drawers.
Yeah. He's pretty much a genius. :-)
he trusts my talents that these shelves are pretty crappy and he didn't care if I blew it.) (and the pic is bad b/c I guess the dust hadn't settled after my awesome power sanding.)
And of course... purple is the new black.
And so how about these great coat/bag hooks Mick put behind her door??? So sweet.
And so Jewel took this great bed spread that I love and cut it down to twin size (it was a queen) and used the excess to make the sham and that adorable pillow you see there!
I mean- really!!!!!! How sweet is that??? Purple pom-pom trim??? WHAT, tell me WHAT is more precious????
On the floor there by the built in shelves and drawers that are so awesome, you see Jewel's crowning idea- we are going to hang those paper lanterns above the bed as a fun and whimsical feature! But there is no way I could wait until they are up to post... I'll just have to take more pix and post about her room AGAIN after that is up. :-)
And here are the formerly black and bunky shelves... LOVE IT.
And as if we needed more cuteness, la piece de resistance... a close up on the curtains that Jewel made.
Could you die from cuteness?
Thank you, Jewel, for giving so much of yourself. I will always think of you when I look around and just LOVE her room. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
