There are so many projects within this project. The ragamuffin garland and the bed curtains were especially fun and satisfying to make.
I didn't start my project blog until after I was done with the room, otherwise I might have documented some of them step by step.
But I didn't. Maybe I'll make those things again sometime and blog about it then. For now, this is all I've got :)
The whole redecoration started with Tessa asking for curtains around her bed. This is what I came up with
From the side
The bottom is my favorite part :)
The bedding is all new, too, of course. I made the duvet cover and the dozens of throw pillows. (got a little carried away with those! the t is my favorite one :)
Hanging from her foot board is a Ragamuffin Garland - something I found on Nesting Place and thought would be perfect in Tessa's room. I love it. I want to make more. I just don't know what for.
The window valance is more influence from Nester. It's very sweet. I love it above the desk.
the lampshade (I covered it and added bows)
a trinket box (on clearance from Target)
a flower arrangement
the bean bag chair she HAD to have
hanging butterflies from Pottery Barn
her memo board - already a mess
shelf on the wall with pictures
her name on the wall (after taking pictures, I've decided it needs to be painted a color, white looks totally washed out. I'm thinking yellow.)
and my favorite thing - hatboxes for her dolls to hang out in.
(they love it, btw - look at those happy faces!)
See all the pictures (bigger, if you want) in my Photobucket album here :)
I'm so glad to be done! I had fun, of course, but Tessa's room seemed to be a lot more work than Asher's. It's been almost 3 years since I decorated her room the first time, so I figure I have another 3 years before I have to do it again!
