My Girls' Rooms - Part 1

This is my youngest daughters' "garden" bedroom. Paint can transform a room, but the picket fence sure was a lot of work.


The teddy bear has been loved on by both of our girls, but most of its wear came from Kevin. It was his when he was a little boy.  


The buckets came from the dollar section at Target, and I added the letters and flowers(it is hard to see right now, but it says, "grow").


My very talented wood-working husband built this for toy storage, based on a picture I saw in a magazine. I love the contrasting pink bead-board.


I appliqued flowers and strawberries, then added an eyelet lace trim onto a Wal-mart valance. Every time I look at it, though, I cringe a little bit inside, because I don't think the strawberry looks quite right. It always reminds me more of a pepper. Oh well, peppers grow in gardens, too. 


This is another example of Kevin's handiwork. Once again, I showed him a doll cradle that I liked in PB Kids, and he did it! Our daughter calls it a "tadle."



If I can get our oldest's room in proper picture-taking order, I will show you her room tomorrow.
