While they're gone, I have some big surprise plans for Audrey. When we moved into our house, her room was one of the first ones we painted. It's pale lilac, although I know she wishes it was a much brighter colour. But that's all we've done. I wrote about that here, you can check out the little bit of progress we've made.
The list of projects for this room was long. And sadly, we've yet to accomplish anything on the list. Not. A. Thing. In all fairness, we have been working hard on other reno projects around here. However, it's my goal to complete a few projects to make her room something special while she's gone. And then surprise her when she gets back!
This is the fabric for her long pillow.
This is the bed:
She wants a brightly coloured room so we're going with turquoise.
We found her chandy in someone else's trash. My favorite kind of treasure. We're planning to dress it up with a paint job. I have yet to choose a colour. I will likely choose something pulled from the striped fabric we're using. Pink? Any colour suggestions would be appreciated.
Additionally, a chalkboard wall is happening on the desk wall, a la:
I have a zillion ideas swirling around in my head. I'm always good at making inspiration boards for a space - but it's somehow hard for me to commit the ideas to the actual room and actually get it done. There are a few craft type projects I'd like to create for the space but we'll see what kind of time crunch I run up against.
Some things that also need to be addressed:
- hooks for hanging sweatshirts and pjs
- hooks/jewelry organization/display
- hang string lights?
- make a pompom garland/flower/paper/other creative garland
Isn't planning a surprise FUN??
