Tessa's Room

The after pictures of Tessa's bedroom redecoration are finally downloaded and uploaded - here they are!

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 accessories...
You've seen the desk and the art, here are the other little things.
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!
