May09 Fringe Banner DIY 2013
I’m loving this Fringe banner that I found over at Armommy. She gives you all the wonderful details for how to do this yourself and I think I might make one just for fun! I hope you’re loving this beautifully spring day. Enjoy!
Decorating a little girl’s room is so much fun! We have been on a wild ride with our darling boy, who just turned five and is fast-committed to super heroes and dinosaurs. He isn’t the least bit interested with a clever design theme or handcrafted anything in his room. Does it have Spiderman on it? Or a T-rex? Yes? Then great! But if not – forget about it. Needless to say, spending my nesting energy planning and designing a room for our girl has felt extra special to me. I didn’t want to go super girly and was careful not to use too much pink and frill. I gave her a bright blue wall, hand painted words, a chandelier I made by hand, and lots of vintage touches.
I wanted a mix of floral patterns, weathered wood, and newer more modern pieces such as our Eames-inspired rocker. I am in love with the way these seemingly ill-fit items came together to create a space that is whimsical and warm, just like I imagine our girl will be. The bright vintage dresser was a score my husband and I found at a warehouse in this fun, hip part of Chicago called Andersonville. We sanded and repainted it and now its ready to serve as her changing table and dresser. Crib bedding and changing pad cover are from Land of Nod - a children’s store which I LOVE. Other items have been collected, handmade, or are family heirlooms from her grandparents. Now, all that is missing is our baby girl, who will be joining the planet next month!
