Ummm, yeah...

Miss Addy has pretty much the coolest aunt...ever! Oh wait...that's me. Awkward?? Not if it's true. ;) I've been getting a super-de-duper cute room ready for her over the last few months...
and it's finally done!
So...without further ado...the room!

I love how the wall art pieces turned out (although...I'd be lying if I said I won't be looking for additions). I thrifted all of these for less than $1.99 each...bam! I was going to paint all 3 of the chalk pieces, but the hubs said the colors on the flower basket were too pretty to cover up. Awww.....

Heart-shaped cork board *swoon*! I picked this beauty up from my favorite Salvation Army for only 99 cents...ohmygoodness!! just needs some pics on it.

My heart skipped when I spotted this embroidered lovely @ the flea market...and at $ was a steal! Other thrifty finds...the yellow ginham metal basket was only 50 cents...and I found the Ikea pendant lamp for $2 @ a garage sale a couple years ago.

I needed a little space to set odds & was thrilled to find this bench @ the flea market for only $25...made out of reclaimed lumber. The mountain scene painting was picked up @ Goodwill for less than $2. I found the cuter-than-cute tea set @ a second-hand store. I especially love it b/c it's not saccarine sweet pink...but my favorite shade of green.

Storage space is pretty limited in this baby-sized I snagged this chippy, white cabinet @ a re-sale shop to solve that problem. For Addy's things, I bought storage boxes w/ lids...and jewelry organizers to hold some of my things (see my accessories story here). The stacking blocks on the floor are something from my childhood...vintage from Germany.

 This bed is pretty much my favorite 'story' of this whole project. One day I was trolling I do (too often)...and a lovely lady from my church posted she was giving away a picket fence twin bed frame. Did you hear that?!? FREE!! I couldn't reply fast enough! Bonus...someone else saw the post and had a free mattress. All we had to buy was a box spring. How amazing! The bedding is a mish-mash of new and thrifted + a vintage chenille bedspread. Another freebie...the nitestand...holds a vintage lamp my mom had bought for me a long time ago (plus thecutestever tiny box of tissues & a bowl full of succulents). Last...but not this corner of the room...a vintage straw bag I discovered @ the Goodwill.

Just one more pic...b/c I am 'completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy' w/ the results. (Just a little play on a quote from one of my most favoritest movies, Pride & Prejudice).

Now...if only she were old enough to stay the nite in her big girl bed. Guess I'll just have to enjoy the room for now...



  1. you're an amazing aunt! nice work on the room.

  2. Such a pretty, girly room w/o going overboard on the frills, pinks & frou-frou!! Love it...good job!
