There are still a few things I want to do in Lyla's room, but here is what we have so far. It is a pretty small room, and we wanted to keep the guest bed, which makes the room seem even smaller, but I really like how it turned out. I love the blue we chose--I had about 5 different blue samples from home depot and I found one I liked, but I wanted it lighter, so I added some white and painted a small piece of wood and took that in for them to match it. A few people were like, "But you're having a GIRL. What is with the blue?" I really don't know. I just didn't want pink or purple and I thought this blue looked pretty enough for a girls room.
I also read a ton of tutorials on how to do the board and batten. It was our first home project that involved power tools and it was definitely a learning experience. Thankfully my dad and brother helped us get it all up--thanks boys! And thanks to Jared for the many trips to home depot and putting up with my insanity while we figured this all out.
I painted the headboard and glazed it...I'm not 100% thrilled with how it turned out but it is going to have to wait for me to fix it until it gets cooler outside. I am still looking for some bedding and a few more pillows to tie it all together.
I lucked out and found the crib bedding online at Target for $12! Really, it was $6 for the bumper and $6 for the sheet. I really wanted something that would tie the pink and blue together and the crib bumper did that really well. I made the crib skirt from a King size sheet I bought at Walmart for $10.
I LOVE these old antique windows. There is an antique store in my hometown that sells them so now I have two in my home. I made the wreath--the same way I made my Valentines Wreath.
I got the idea for the pennant banner from some different blogs and my sister-in-law Sam. After a few chats with her on how she did it, I decided to make it and I LOVE it! It was pretty easy and since I already had a lot of fabric scraps, all I had to buy was the binding...
I actually like how it looked so much I went and made one for Adalynn's room (I made Adalynn's much simpler and it took maybe an hour and--go figure--I actually like that one more). I also used this banner in a couple photo shots I did with Lyla.
I plan on putting some pictures of Lyla on this wall once I get around to editing and printing some.
Still to do:
Find pillows for bed
Pictures on wall
Nightstand next to bed
Find a cute light fixture
