I think it's time for a room reveal don't you?
Lydia's room is all done!
I used a lot of the same elements from Lydia's Tennessee bedroom. Waste not and all that.
I wanted yellow curtains. But I made the mistake of taking Lydia with me to the store.
So we have pink.
Oh well. You're only a little girl once. Might as well make it as pink and purple as you can.
I cut apart an extra window valance and framed the fabric.
(I did the same kind of thing in the guest room.)
I told Shane I would like some bookshelves on the wall and that I'd see some cool ones made of rain gutters.
"I'm not putting rain gutters on the kids walls"
"Ok, fine. Can you make some out of wood."
"I'll figure something out."
A couple hours later he came out of his shop with these.
He did a pretty good job :)
Sure. He did the wood shelves.
But I cut and stapled all those paper chains.
My sister Abby did the amazing quilt and little painting shown here.
I have some seriously talented sisters.
My sister Emily made the big dolls and Abby made the little ones.
My sister Molly's contributions are seen elsewhere in the house.
My brother Zac is a really nice guy.
My favorite photo of Lydia and Shane will always have a place on Lydia's dresser.
I'll cherish this time when she lets me help decorate.
There is something so sweet about the knick knacks of little girls.
My seven year old self is so jealous!
