You've asked...you've waited...here it is...Miss Lizzie's new room!
A few things remain the same. This picture was a gift when Lizzie was born, drawn by her godfather. Doesn't it look very arty against the pure white wall.
We needed a place to gather all the backpacks and hoodies for this grown-up 'tween girl. At the perfect height of course. It's a much better place than the end of her bed where they previously lived.
A look back at my sweet little baby girl. The frames and photos are repurposed from the old room, the fabric matting is new.
We also needed a place to group all the little girl bric-a-brac that she accumulates. These ledges work perfectly. The Suess-inspired photo was another present from Lizzie's artist godfather.
The famous blue desk. I love the way it turned out. She stills needs a new chair as I'm not crazy about this set up and understandably it doesn't feel great for the back or bottom to spend much time sitting here. I covered a few corkboard with fabric so Lizzie can pin up more treasures. We have a new "no posters on the wall" by-law in our house, but I figured she still has little things she'll want to keep, thus the corkboards.
Ah, the blasted CURTAINS. I don't think I actually swore during the sewing but there were moments. They turned out well, even if I didn't get around to hemming them.
A sweet little purse. Just an extra pretty doo-dad hanging around.
Remembered those miles of lace I was crocheting? It was used trim the pillowcases I embroidered for her bed.
And the bed. The chandelier silhouettes were a lot easier in theory. I need at least 2 or 3 extra hands and they still aren't completely straight. We are saying that they are swaying in the breeze. I priced out the fabric to make Lizzie's quilt and the fabric cost more than $180.00 just for the top. So I used one of the quilts from my bed instead. And it fits
There are a few things I still want to make or purchase, but she's happy with her more "mature" room. And so am I.
