Victoria had to work today, so I'm linking to this older post for Rhoda's favorite thrifty find party. I know that the darling pink bed in her daughter's room is one of her favorite finds ever, along with this.
Since we share this blog, here is a link to one of my favorite finds. I paid only $5.00 for the painting and it is a favorite around here. Make sure you go and join the party.
I took pictures of Sweet Girl's room yesterday. Her room is one of my favorite in the house because it's just so precious. Before she was born I had a hard time with all the crib bedding out there so I went with the Shabby Chic line of regular bedding from Target and had my talented sister Beth make a bumper pad out of a twin size quilt. I used a twin bedskirt on the crib by pinning it into place. After that I looked for the bedding to go on sale and picked up a duvet cover, sheets, etc on clearance for when she would transition to a big girl bed. I am in desperate need of some pink throw pillows to tie everything together, in fact Target has this pillow that I want to get to add to her bed.
Years ago (before sweet girl was even a thought) while shopping at an antique store with my MIL I came across this pink bed and decided I just had to have it for my guest room. Before we moved sweet girl to her big girl bed I was considering painting the bed but I just loved the pink distressed paint and the decorating queen (aka Christina) told me it would be fine left as is.
The dresser came from Lakewood for $110. I just loved the shape of the mirror and it was a great height for a 6'3" man to change diapers on the top when she was a baby. :)
The Decorating Queen made the lampshade seen in the corner, hubs rewired and painted the lamp (bought for cheap at the same antique store as the bed), MIL brought the tea cart over from her house to use as a night stand. The white eyelet curtains came from my sisters MIL.
I had to show the detail of the picture hanging on the wall. Beth cross-stitched this for me one Christmas when my Mother had us make each other gifts instead of buying something for one another.
I added the letters just this spring...bought the letters at Hobby Lobby and a pad of scrapbook paper on clearance at Target that had great papers that coordinated with Sweet Girl's room.
So there it is...the most precious room in my little house!
